The BS6-compliant Shine gets an all-new motor now. Here’s how it stacks up against the two other 125cc motorcycles on paper

Honda Shine BS6 Spec Comparison

The new Honda Shine BS6 might look similar to its BS4 predecessor but underneath it gets an all-new fuel-injected 125cc motor. It competes with other competent 125cc motorcycles like the Bajaj Pulsar 125 BS6 and Hero Glamour BS6, both of which get updated and fuel-injected BS6-compliant motors. Here’s an on-paper comparison between the three bikes:

All three motorcycles get fuel-injected motors. The Bajaj Pulsar 125 makes the most power and is the sportiest one here. The Glamour sees an almost 1PS drop but still delivers more power than the Shine BS6, which gets an all-new motor. Like before, it is a torquey motor and impresses in terms of refinement. While the Shine and Pulsar 125 come with a 5-speed gearbox, the Glamour BS6 got a 5-speed gearbox as part of its BS6 update. An extra cog will help the bikes tour in a relaxed manner on the highways.

Honda Shine BS6 Spec Comparison

In terms of underpinnings, the Bajaj Pulsar 125 impresses the most. It gets frame and suspension components from the larger Pulsar 150. The Shine BS6 disappoints in this department as it does not offer rear suspension preload adjustability like the other two bikes. As the Pulsar 125 Neon is a sportier motorcycle compared to the Shine and Glamour, it gets smaller 17-inch wheels and wider tyres. All three bikes get an optional front disc brake and a standard rear drum but the Pulsar 125 gets a larger 170mm drum brake.

The Pulsar’s premium bodywork and underpinnings come at a price. It is the heaviest bike here while the Shine BS6 is the lightest. It also gets a larger 11.5-litre fuel tank. All three bikes get similar seat height and are accessible to most riders. The Hero Glamour impresses with its tall ground clearance which should make it easier to ride in rural B-roads.

The Honda Shine BS6 impresses with its refinement, quality and low-end performance. It is also the most affordable motorcycle and offers fantastic value as a 125cc commuter. In case you want a sportier 125cc motorcycle, the Pulsar 125 Neon BS6 is a better bet with its performance, features and sporty underpinnings.
