– New 2022 Honda Navi 110 Review: Specs, Price, Colors, Release Date Info + More! –
Say hello to the New 2022 Honda Navi! Now, if you follow the blog then you already knew about this little automatic motorcycle / scooter (whatever you want to call it) as we talked about it here back in 2016 when it was announced on the other side of the planet. Fast forward a few years and we’re finally getting the Navi here in the good ole US of A! Sadly, it’s not as cheap as it is over in India where it was initially released with a price tag that converts to only $582 bucks haha but we all know you can’t do straight conversions like that from one country to the next – it would be nice though! I still have to see one in person to see the fit, finish and build quality but from the looks of it so far, I don’t think its $1,807 price tag is too steep for the states. I was worried that if they brought it over it’d end up being around $2,300 to $2,500 and at that point, I don’t see it selling that well but if you can get into one of these for their MSRP without any dealer fees etc – then you’re ripping around town with taxes and a tag for about $2,000 and that’s hard to beat! But, that’s enough rambling so let’s jump into some more details and see what this new 2022 Honda Navi mini bike is all about below…

1. | 2022 Honda Navi Introduction
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.

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

3. | 2022 Honda Navi 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.
4. | 2022 Honda Navi 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.
