Have any of you guys found a practical use for the gaping hole under the petrol tank? It is too big to be wasted!

Surprised by the huge response to its 'by India, for India' bike Navi, launched this April, HMSI is planning to double its production to around 1 lakh units soon.

The decision to ramp up production also comes after Honda started to export Navi. HMSI started exports of Navi to Nepal in October and plans to send vehicles to other SAARC nations.

Honda has released the luggage box for the Navi a couple of weeks back (just before Diwali).

The luggage box makes the Navi a much more practical buy now.

I have reviewed the luggage box in my 6 months update -

Finally I got mine, it's my first two wheeler. I always thought of me as a car guy and never took much interest in two wheelers.

But rising traffic forced me to look for a two wheeler.

Since I don't know how to ride a bike, my search for a scooter ended up with navi. It's very easy and fun to ride.

I did some customization with team bhp stickers too.

In my recent trip to north Goa (Morjim particularly), we saw just way too many Honda Navi bikes available for rent at all local bike-renting outlets. This side of Goa is frequented mostly by foreigners and a lot of them seemed to be enjoying the joy rides on Honda Navi.

I guess its gearless transmission mated with zippy engine combined with cuteness/novelty factor attracts a lot of non-Indian tourists. This bike being significantly cheaper than typical gearless scooters currently available in the market makes it a win-win deal for the bike renters. In this case, luggage carrying is not a requirement at all; so Honda Navi fits perfectly.

Congrats on your new vehicle!!.

How's the front suspension on the Navi - Honda scooters' front suspension are generally a pain in Activa, Dio and Activa-i.

I own a Dio and whenever I see a rough patch on the road, I prepare to exercise the tendons in my wrists.

Front suspension is good, it is better than Activa's.

Bought one (Patriot Red) impulsively due to discounts on March 31st.

As a matter of fact, was not aware that such a product existed before 4PM on 31st March. Had some free time at work on that day and was browsing some autosites which mentioned Honda was giving Navi free with their high-end CBRs. I assumed it was some GPS device being given but got curious as to why bikes needed navigation systems.

Clicked read more and it was love at first sight. It Looked funky yet compact. I think people like me (possible mid life crisis) are the reason I don't see any of the college youth driving it in my town.

Checked with 2 Honda dealers of whom one has exhausted his stocks and the other just had two in warehouse.

Booked a Patriot Red without even a test drive at 530PM.

40K including Cargo Box. Delivery is scheduled for Wednesday 5th April.


Hope its as much as fun the reviews say.

Looks like some dealers made money during the BSIII sale. When I enquired about navi in one of the remote showrooms in Bangalore, they quoted 51k. Finally booked a navi in patriot red for 30k in Kannur.

.
I too have booked one for 40K with all the accessories of the adventure kit, in Chennai.

I only thing sour to the eyes is the small tear wheel. Can it be changed to 12 or 14 inch wheels?

Since the entire drive train is lifted from Activa, up-sizing the wheel will affect the performance (acceleration and braking) and durability.

Thanks Boss. Have'nt got the bike yet.

I'm willing to sacrifice little bit of performance over looks. Can the front wheel, which is 12 inch, be fitted on the rear as well?
