2018 Honda Navi Launched; Gets Much-needed Fuel Gauge
For a relatively minor price hike, the moto-scoot now gets a fuel gauge and two new colours
Honda has launched the 2018 Navi in India at Rs 44,775. Before being discontinued for not complying with BSIV norms, the Honda Navi was sold for Rs 42,784 (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi). So now, what more does the 2018 version offer for a price hike of roughly Rs 1,900?
In a nutshell, a much-needed fuel-gauge indicator, body-coloured rearview mirrors, a BSIV-compliant engine and two additional colours - green and brown. Other than this, the two-wheeler remains the same. Its 109cc engine is the same motor seen on the Honda Activa 5G and is BSIV-compliant now. It churns out 8PS of power and 8.96Nm of torque. Underpinnings too remain the same, with upside-down telescopic forks at the front and a hydraulic monoshock at the rear. Braking, meanwhile, is handled by 130mm drum units on both ends.
The addition of a fuel gauge is a welcome move, considering the motorcycle only packs a small 3.5-litre fuel tank. The new colours, on the other hand, will help the company keep the Navi fresh. Here’s Honda’s official statement about the launch.
