Honda Navi Sales Drop to 284 Units in April 2017

Honda Navi is a unique mixture of motorcycle and scooter dynamics for the Indian market. It actually belongs to the monkey bike category but by sharing the frame with Honda Activa, Navi lost the right charm of that category.

Honda designed and developed the same in India but due to cost restricted approach, they could not get the right amount of motorcycle feel into the Navi. Still, it sold more than 50,000 units in the first year and that figure was actually double the amount estimated by the company.

Honda Navi Sales Drop to 284 Units in April 2017

The shocking news came when Honda launched the BS4 compliant Navi in India as it simply sold 284 units in the month of April 2017. This is actually one tenth the sales number of Navi from last few months.

The component sharing between both the products helps the Navi achieve 8 PS at 7000 rpm and 8.96 Nm at 5500 rpm from the refined 109.19 cc motor. While all other monkey bikes are actually using manual gearbox for added fun, Honda Navi comes with the automatic gearbox from Activa itself.

Honda dealers were even offering free Navi with the purchase of Honda CBR250R ABS in selected regions. This thing continued for just 2 days and then suddenly the sales dropped to 284 units (April 2017) from 503 units (March 2017).

Honda is offering Chrome, Adventure and even personally customized Navi versions at all outlets. It has been currently priced at INR 41,500 and loading it with accessories may take the price near to the Activa 3G, concluded as the only reason for that drastic drop in sales.
