Honda Motorcycle and Scooters India (HMSI) has started dispatching the Navi from its plant in Tapukara, Rajastan, to the dealers across the country. The Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer also said the hybrid two-wheeler have received over 1,000 booking so far via the Android app, called the Navi, within little over a month after the Auto Expo 2016.

"Disrupting the monotony and bringing FUN to 100-110cc segment, the Navi is 100% developed by Honda R&D India from concept development to commercial production. It offers new additional Value for India (NAVI)," said the company in a statement.

Even though the dispatch has begun, the deliveries have been scheduled in a phased manner. The two-wheeler crossover will be available in Mumbai by the end of this month, while rest of the country is expected to get deliveries starting next month. HMSI will also offer a wide range of customisation options for the Navi at the dealerships.

With Honda Navi, which is built on a new chassis, the company attempts to create a new segment in the two-wheeler market. It is styled to look like a bike with the convenience of a scooter. Powering the Navi is a 109cc 4-stroke, SI engine that does duty in Activa. The motor can churn out 7.83bhp of power at 7,000rpm and 8.96Nm of peak torque at 5,500Nm. The two-wheeler has been priced at Rs 39,500 (ex-showroom Delhi). It will be offered in three variants — Street, Adventure and Off-road — and comes in five colour options — red, green, white, orange and black.
