The frenzy for the Honda Navi might have tapered off in India, but the scooter continues to enjoy a decent demand in other international markets. The company has been shipping off 1,000 units every month to markets in Latin America, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
The Navi was launched during the 2016 Auto Expo. Its affordable price tag and the quirky styling got it off to a good start and the scooter breached the 50,000 unit sales milestone in eight months. Buoyed by the demand for the scooter, Honda even doubled the capacity for the Navi at the Rajasthan facility, bringing it up to 1 lakh units per annum. However, sales started to drop once the initial frenzy wore off.
Honda is yet to launch the BS-IV version of the Navi, and it is no longer on sale in India. Nevertheless, other global markets seem to have taken a liking for the scooter, and the company has been exporting 1,000 units of the scooter. Honda claims that the learnings from the Navi have played a major role in the shaping of their latest offering – the Cliq.
