2022 Honda Navi: EASY TO OWN, EASY TO RIDE.

Introducing the 2022 Honda Navi…

What makes the new Honda Navi so much fun? How about this: First, it’s easy to ride, thanks to its one-speed, no-shift automatic CVT transmission. That helps make it easy to learn on too, even if you’ve never ridden a motorcycle before. Because it’s small, it’s easy to park. Some spectacular fuel efficiency makes it easy on your wallet when it comes time to fill the tank. A reliable Honda engine makes maintenance easy too—because it hardly needs any. And best of all, with its super-low price, the new Honda Navi is easy to own. So check out the mini machine that maximizes your fun—the new Honda Navi. Don’t just ride—Navi-gate your world.

With its extensive lineup of fun, approachable, practical models, Honda has long led the way in welcoming new riders to the world of motorcycling. That’s particularly true of the brand’s extremely popular miniMOTO family, and with the news of American Honda bringing the affordable Navi to the U.S. for the 2022 model year, the motorcycling experience will be attainable for even more people.

Somewhat of a mix between Honda’s Ruckus and Grom (each of which is popular enough to have developed its own subculture), the Navi has the styling of a motorcycle and some convenience features of a scooter, including Honda’s V-Matic automatic transmission – just twist the throttle to go. It’s all wrapped up in an unintimidating miniMOTO package, and thanks to an incredible $1,807 MSRP and gas-sipping performance, the Navi is within reach of almost any customer – especially when one considers the long maintenance intervals (every 2,500 miles for oil changes and every 10,000 miles for air-filter replacement, for example). With Honda’s proven quality and reliability, the Navi is a dependable way to get around town and – since it can carry a passenger – is also more convenient than public transportation or carpooling.

There’s never been a better way for new riders to discover just how enjoyable, convenient and practical motorcycling can be.

 

 

2022 Honda Navi Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

109cc FOUR-STROKE ENGINE
One of the best aspects of the new Navi is its Honda engine. It’s air-cooled for simplicity, offers spectacular fuel efficiency, and makes plenty of power. A single-cylinder, overhead-cam design, it’s low-maintenance and super reliable!

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Here’s a big feature that sets this little bike apart from anything else in our miniMOTO lineup: The Navi features a CVT transmission. That not only means no clutch and no shifting, but no neutral or park either—just start it up, twist the throttle, and go-go-go!

LOW SEAT HEIGHT
With a low 30-inch seat height, getting on and off the Navi is a snap. Even better, it’s easy to flat-foot it in parking lots or at stop lights. The long, flat seat makes it easy to move around, too, especially for taller riders.

ELECTRIC STARTER
Just turn the key, press a button and go. The Navi’s electric starter and backup kickstarter make getting underway super easy.

 

 

 

2022 Honda Navi Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

DESIGN / STYLING
For styling inspiration, one could hardly do better than Honda’s very own Grom – the most successful miniMOTO on the market, and one of the best-selling models in the powersports industry. As a result, the Navi boasts a sporty motorcycle look and feel, with the rider’s legs straddling the fuel tank and their feet placed on side-mounted pegs, rather than the scooter-style step-through/floorboard design. The rear brake is actuated by a foot lever on the right, as opposed to a left hand-lever as with scooters.

That said, the engine is located at the rear like a scooter, freeing up space in front of the seat for a convenient, lockable storage pod – perfect for stashing textbooks, a jacket or a water bottle. While the frame, wheels, suspension, engine and exhaust are all black, they’re offset by boldly colored side panels, whose shapes are somewhat evocative of Honda’s legendary CRF family of dirt bikes. The prominent headlight has a hexagonal shape.

Like the Grom, the Navi’s design makes it a blank canvas for customization, begging owners to update it with personal touches, by picking from Honda Signature Accessories like two special graphics kits that were developed in collaborations – one a vibrant, colorful version designed by edgy Portland gear manufacturer Icon, the other a Viper Urban Camo version designed by South Carolina hunting-apparel manufacturer TrueTimber – or from the long list of offerings the aftermarket invariably offers for Honda miniMOTO machines.

The simple-but-functional instrumentation package includes a large, easy-to-read analog speedometer and a useful fuel gauge.

ENGINE / DRIVETRAIN
While the looks are all motorcycle, the engine is all scooter, meaning it’s rear-mounted and requires no shifting. In fact, the smooth-running, quiet power plant comes straight from the acclaimed Activa (a hugely popular model in scooter-crazy Asia), and touts Honda’s super-efficient eSP friction-reducing technology, delivering excellent fuel economy, with an incredible EPA fuel mileage rating of 110.3 mpg.

This obviously makes for an extremely affordable cost of operation, especially when one considers Honda’s legendary durability and dependability. Those attributes – along with safety and convenience – were key priorities with the Navi. The engine is a fan-cooled 109.2cc, single-cylinder, two-valve, overhead-camshaft four-stroke that is tilted forward at 80º. Bore and stroke are 55.0 mm and 55.6 mm, respectively, and the compression ratio is 9.5:1. The Navi delivers ample usable power for accelerating from stops and overtaking traffic, and it’s ready to provide miles and miles of worry-free passage.

Induction is via a 16 mm carburetor, and power is transferred via Honda’s proven, efficient, easy-to-maintain V-Matic® automatic transmission to a reliable belt drive. With no clutch lever or shift lever, vehicle operation is simple and intuitive, so riders can focus on navigating streets and neighborhoods while enjoying the ride.

CHASSIS / SUSPENSION
The Navi frame design utilizes the engine as a stressed member and is carefully engineered to offer excellent handling feel with superb stability – also thanks in part to the relatively long 50.6 inch wheelbase. Ride comfort is exceptional.

A sturdy 26.8 mm inverted telescopic fork is matched with a side-mounted single rear shock absorber to provide a smooth, comfortable, planted ride, and the pressed-steel wheels are sized 12 inches and 10 inches front and rear, respectively, to confidently handle road imperfections. Slowing and stopping duties are performed by 130 mm drum-type front-and-rear brakes, and a parking brake is actuated by a lever on the left of the handlebar.

The seat height is a comfortable 30.1 inches, and the seat narrows toward the front, making it easy for most riders to get both feet on the ground at stops. A grab rail at the back of the seat provides a secure grip for the passenger.

Fuel capacity is .9 gallons, delivering surprising range thanks to the Navi’s fuel-stingy nature. Fully fueled and read to ride, the Navi weighs just 236 pounds, making it a breeze to maneuver through traffic, push into a tight parking spot or load on an RV bumper rack.

 

CONVENIENCE
AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Here’s a big feature that sets this little bike apart from anything else in our miniMOTO lineup: The Navi features a CVT transmission. That not only means no clutch and no shifting, but no neutral or park either—just start it up, twist the throttle, and go-go-go!

INTEGRATED STORAGE AREA
Taking your stuff with you just got a whole lot easier. That’s because the Navi has a generous, lockable, integrated storage area. It’s big enough to hold a laptop, your lunch, and plenty more—what you use it for is up to you!

COMPACT SIZE
The Navi is small, which is one of the reasons it’s so much fun. That also makes it easy to park. It’s about the same size as another of our favorite miniMOTO bikes—the Grom.

FUEL CAPACITY
Fear the gas station no more! With a one-gallon gas tank, the Navi is super-inexpensive to fill up. And since it’s so fuel efficient, you won’t have to fill up very often.

TWO-UP CAPABILITY
Want to share the fun with a friend? No problem—the Navi comes equipped with a pair of passenger pegs as standard equipment.

AVAILABLE ACCESSORIES
Here are a couple of ways you can make your new Navi even more fun: Why not add an optional windscreen or a rear cargo rack? And check out our available graphics kit too—it’s a great way to personalize your Navi’s look.

PERFORMANCE
109cc FOUR-STROKE ENGINE
One of the best aspects of the new Navi is its dependable Honda engine. It’s air-cooled for simplicity, offers spectacular fuel efficiency, and makes plenty of power. A single-cylinder, overhead-cam design, it’s low-maintenance and super reliable.

HET—Honda ECO TECH
Honda’s Navi engine offers the convenience and power of a gasoline engine, but with our HET (Honda Eco Tech) design, it’s also environmentally conscious.

COMFORT
LOW SEAT HEIGHT
With a low 30-inch seat height, getting on and off the Navi is a snap. Even better, it’s easy to flat-foot it in parking lots or at stop lights. The long, flat seat makes it easy to find just the right position and to move around on too, especially for taller riders.

ENGINEERING
ELECTRIC STARTER
Just turn the key, press a button and go. The Navi’s electric starter makes getting underway super easy.

STYLE
FRESH NEW LOOK
There’s no mistaking a Honda Navi, because we’ve given it a fresh look unlike anything out there. It’s about a world away from most scooters, and it’s just begging for you to give it your own personal touches too. Hip and urban, it’s going to stand out wherever you ride it.

FOUR GREAT COLORS
The Navi comes in four awesome colors, so take your pick: Red, Grasshopper Green, Nut Brown and Ranger Green.

HANDLING
10/12-INCH WHEELS
Part of the reason the Navi is so maneuverable are its wheels. They’re much smaller in diameter than a full-sized motorcycle’s (10-inch rear and 12-inch front). That contributes both to the Navi’s small overall size and its light, fun handling.

TELEFORK SUSPENSION
Just like a full-sized motorcycle, the new Navi features a telescopic-fork front suspension for great control and road feel.

SINGLE REAR SHOCK
Thanks to the Navi’s single hydraulic rear shock, you get a plush ride, even over choppy pavement.

STRONG STEEL FRAME
The Navi’s sturdy underbone steel frame is designed to take what gnarly city streets can throw at it, and still provide the basis for this bike’s excellent handling.

FRONT AND REAR BRAKES
The Navi’s brakes are set up like a full-sized motorcycle’s with a front-brake lever on the handlebar and a foot pedal for the rear brake. Plus, Honda’s combined braking system helps you make quick, secure stops.
