It looks like the Navi, a new kind of two-wheeler in the Indian market from the house of Honda, may soon get a new powerful variant in India. A report of Gaadiwaadi claims that the two-wheeler maker, Honda, has applied for the trademark of Navi Go, which could be a 125cc version of the Navi.
The Navi, the first product to be conceived, designed, developed and validated in India by Honda's R&D, was launched in the country at the Auto Expo 2016. It is Honda's attempt to create a new segment of two-wheelers in India and from what we understand; the company has succeeded in doing that to some extent. Honda sold over 5,000 units of Navi so far, as the deliveries commenced at the beginning of April.
The latest report hint that the Navi Go, the 125cc avatar of the Navi, could see the light of the day by the end of 2016 and may get a price tag of about Rs. 60,000. The current Navi has been priced at Rs. 39,500 (ex-showroom Delhi). With the new avatar, Honda is likely to capitalise mainly on the style of the Navi and may include additional features. Honda Navi is styled to look like a bike with the convenience of a scooter. Built on a new chassis, the Navi is powered by 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.
At the heart of the Navi Go may be the 125cc engine of Activa, which can generate 9bhp of power. Other features are likely to be the same as the current Navi and is expected to come in five colour options. The Navi Go could also get three variants -- Street, Adventure and Off-road.
