Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India has launched the 2018 Honda Navi in India, priced at INR 44,775 (ex-showroom Delhi).
The 2018 Honda Navi features a stylish new fuel gauge and metal muffler protector, along with body coloured grab rail, rear view mirrors, headlight cover, and sporty red cushion spring. The new Navi is available in two new colour schemes - Ranger Green and Ladakh Brown.
Honda launched the Navi in India at the 2016 Auto Expo, and the scooter has created a niche with its light-weight form factor, practicality, and quirky design, but does not have the volumes yet to call it a success. Honda claims that the Navi has received an overwhelming response in the Latin-American market.
Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria - Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, -
In the diverse Indian two-wheeler market, Navi stands out firmly with its unique fun proposition. The trendy Navi is a style statement for the youth, and the new 2018 upgrades take it a notch higher. Along with the convenience value addition like a stylish fuel gauge and muffler protector, new vibrant colors offer an extra zing for those who have an appetite for uniqueness. We will continue to surprise our customers and add more fun for the riders.
