  • Overview

    The most trustworthy and best selling 125cc motorcycle in India- Honda CB Shine is an unmatchable option for the buyers of any age group.

The Optimax engine is coupled with HET (Honda Eco Technology), which ensures a smooth engine performance along with a decent fuel economy of 65kmpl claimed by the company. The reliable powermill comes to life with the push of an easy electric starter which then hits a top speed of 93kmph.

    Honda CB Shine runs on 80/100-18 sized tubeless tyres at both ends. The braking system includes 130mm drum brakes paired with CBS (Combi Braking System) at front as well as rear, with an optional 240mm front disc brake.
