The mystery two-wheeler that Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India has been teasing for quite some day is the Honda Navi. The Navi was launched on the inaugaral day of the Auto Expo 2016 - the Motor Show - at a staring price of Rs 39.500 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Honda Navi opens up an all-new segment in the Indian two-wheeler segment and will attract young buyers, said the company. It looks like a cross between an adventure bike and a commuter motorcycle. Honda Navi is the first 100 per cent Honda R&D India model. The made-in-India & made-for-India Honda Navi was conceptualised, designed and developed entirely in India. The Honda Navi is available in a total of five colour options - Patriot Red, Shasta White, Hooper Green, Sparky Orange and Black.

It's very mechanical & clean, which offers both convenience and performance to a rider. Powering the Honda Navi is a 110cc, single-cylinder engine that, mated to an automatic gearbox, develops 7.8bhp at 7000rpm and 9Nm at 5500rpm. This engine is probably the same that does duty on the Honda Activa. Measuring 1805mm in length, 748mm in width, 1039mm in height and 1286mm in wheelbase, the Honda Navi is quite a compact two-wheeler.
