Honda has updated its quirky little Navi with the safety net of CBS (Combined Braking System). At a sticker price of Rs 47,110 (ex-showroom, Delhi), the CBS variant carries a premium of Rs 1,768 over the standard version, which might sound a bit too steep, but dial in the fact that the 2019 Navi also gets tubeless tyres, and the premium seems justified.
The Navi is the sixth scooter in Honda’s current scooter lineup to feature CBS. That said, with the government safety norms looming large, we could soon expect the Aviator and Cliq to get a similar treatment pretty soon too. Coming back to the Honda Navi, it’s powered by a 109.19cc, single-cylinder engine that produces 8PS of power at 7,000rpm and 8.94Nm of torque at 5,500rpm. It gets a rather small 3.5-litre fuel tank.
The Navi is Honda’s unique approach to a monkey bike, albeit with more practicality and an automatic transmission. Moreover, weighing in at just 100kg, the Navi is a nimble handler. Its suspension setup includes a conventional telescopic fork up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking is handled by 130mm drum brakes at both ends. Its 12-inch front and 10-inch rear wheels come shod in 90/90 and 90/100-sections tyres respectively. In terms of competition, the Honda Navi has none, and enjoys a free rein in its segment. It’s offered in six different shades - red, white, black, brown, green and orange.
