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 motorcycle is easy to ride like most of the commuters and can be used by any eligible rider of your family. Recently, Honda also updated it with new visual modifications and some mechanical changes here and there, to make this perfect bike even better.
Honda CB Shine comes with a 124.7cc air-cooled, four-stroke engine mated to a four-speed transmission. The super-refined Honda motor delivers the vehicle a maximum power of 10.54bhp at 7,500rpm along with a peak torque of 10.54Nm at 5,500rpm. 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. The CBS involves applied action of both the brakes while pressing the rear brake pedal to assure safety. The bike sits on a diamond type frame which is coupled with telescopic shocks at the front and spring loaded hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear end. The motorcycle comes with an Ergo-tec design which gives the rider a comfortable riding position. The vehicle also features a viscous-air filter, which keeps the maintenance cost low.
The fuel tank capacity is 10.5 liter which gives the 125cc commuter a fair long distance run without frequent refuelling. Honda CB Shine also comes with a 3D emblem of Honda at the fuel tank which looks bold and impressive. Stylish graphics on the body makes it look more appealing with body coloured grab rail. The handlebars weight reduces the vibrations during high speeds. With its entry in the 125cc motorcycle segment, the competition of its rivals viz. Hero MotoCorp Glamour, Yamaha Gladiator and TVS Phoenix heats-up.
