Design:

At first sight, we may find that Honda has brought Navi


to the market with new design elements but when you
look closely at it, and then you will get an idea of ​this
bike’s overall design.

For example, the rear panel is not very effective. Honda has
given a huge exhaust to Navi, which stands it among the
other motorcycles. Also, its carbon fiber look makes it
different from other two wheeler that are present in the
market.
Engine, mileage:
The Honda Navi engine is quite smooth and
vibration free just like Activa. Two people sitting on
this bike can easily enjoy riding.
The Navi offers an mileage up to 45 kilometers per
liter on new urban roads.
Ride and handling:
Honda Navi’s seat is quite comfortable. Its seat is
long and wide enough for two people. Talking about
the riding position of this scooter bike, it is full of
confidence in the city running, whether it is the bike
riding on the highway traffic. Its Pillon footrest has
been placed far enough which can cause some trouble
for the rider.
Storage:
As we look from the storage perspective, then
there is less space under the seat and to keep
something in it.

There are no competitors for Honda navi.

Sales:
Honda Navi, has finally crossed the 1 lakh unit
sales. The Honda Navi was launched at the 2016
Auto Expo. It took the Navi two and half years to
cross the 1 lakh sales mark, since its launch
The shocking news for the Navi is that it registered
0 units in the month of December 2018. People
thought that Navi may soon be out of production as
the brand following has shifted more towards the
Cliq scooter in the affordable section
Reason for failure of Honda navi
1. Ad itself says that '"just for fun", so nobody
ready to spend that much of money for fun.
2. People confused whether it was bike or scooter.
3. There are restricted customers, Honda fails to
target the proper customers. It was targeted niche
market.
4. Women couldn't use this type of scooters.
5. Bad design which was not liked by Indian
customers
6. Company fails to make proper market research.
7. It was worth to buy a bike rather than navi on
that price.

impression on customer mindset.

System). The new 2019 Honda Navi comes priced
at Rs 47,110, ex-showroom (Delhi).

brought it back to the market with the new safety
updates
Conclusion:
This bike has many features that will attract the
consumer to buy but it’s too early to say that it will
success into the market or not.Earning from the big
respects from the customers will lead this bike to
reach new position. We are sure that this Brand has
the capability to create its own position and make
your own segment.At last, we must say that the Navi
brings a fresh breath in the overcrowded two
wheeler market.
