Two-wheeler maker Honda has imported it's Navi like scooter Grom to India, fuelling fresh round of whispers about the launch of the model in the country. A record of Zauba, which tracks India's import and export data, shows that a unit of the Grom has been imported from Japan.

According to the record, the Grom was imported for the purpose of testing and research and development in India. The Grom is a two-wheeler crossover like the Navi in India, which is powered by a 125cc air-cooled single-cylinder four-speed engine four-speed gearbox.

It runs on 12-inch wheels and features LED taillight, front and rear disc brake, upside down front fork and digital instrument cluster. It will not come as a surprise if Honda decides to bring the Grom to the Indian market as the company's Navi is garnering considerably good response.

So far Honda has sold over 5,000 units of the Navi since its launch in early April. It has been priced at Rs. 39,500 (ex-showroom Delhi). There have also been rumours that Honda is also planning to roll out a powerful version of the Navi with 125cc engine at the heart. The current Navi is powered by a 109cc 4-stroke, SI engine, which can churn out 7.83bhp of power at 7,000rpm and 8.96Nm of peak torque at 5,500Nm.
