Honda has launched the Shine BS6. It is available in two variants: Drum and Disc, with prices starting at Rs 67,857 (ex-showroom, Delhi). That is a premium of Rs 7,867 over the base BS4 CB Shine. Updates include a new motor with cosmetic and feature upgrades.
The biggest update is the new 125cc motor. It now gets fuel injection that claims to improve mileage by 14 percent. The BS6-compliant motor now makes 10.7PS at 7500rpm and 11Nm at 6000rpm, 0.4PS and 0.5Nm more than the BS4 CB Shine. Like, the Activa 6G, Dio BS6 and SP 125, the new motor too gets an ACG starter motor that offers extremely silent starts. Another major update is the introduction of a 5-speed gearbox. It should help the Shine BS6’s motor run relaxed at highway speeds.
Other than the motor, the Shine BS6 gets cosmetic upgrades in the form of a DC headlamp, updated tail lamp, engine kill switch, new instrument console design, and new graphics with updated chrome trim on the headlamp visor and side panels. The Shine BS6 is available in 4 colours: Black, Geny Grey Metallic, Rebel Red Metallic & Athletic Blue Metallic.
In the underpinnings department, the Shine SP BS6 now gets a 27mm longer seat which sits flush with the fuel tank now. The wheelbase is 19mm longer for better stability while ground clearance has gone up by 5mm. Suspension setup includes telescopic forks and dual 5-step adjustable shock absorbers.
