Honda New Launch:
Honda 2 Wheelers India has launched the INR 67, 857 (ex-showroom Delhi) BS-VI Honda CB Shine 125, which is more expensive than its BS-IV version INR 7,867. The Honda CB Shine 125 now comes standard with a 5-speed gearbox, just like its counterpart, the Hero Glamour. In comparison, the BS-VI Honda CB Shine also comes with a DC headlamp, a start/stop button for the engine (finally!) and new decals.
The Honda CB Shine 125 obtains a 5-speed gearbox and a smaller exhaust canister, along with a BS-VI engine.
A new instrumentation specification has provided to The Honda CB Shine. This appears to be retailed in two variants:
One with drum brakes only and the other with front disk brake. Interestingly, Honda 2Wheelers India says that the BS-VI CB Shine is 14% more fuel-efficient than its outgoing BS-IV. The new bike hits dealerships in late February 2020.
Ironically, the Honda CB Shine 125 exhaust canister shortened and the chrome heat shield redesigned.
The tried and tested 125 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled mill with Honda Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) technology at the heart of the BS-VI Honda CB Shine 125. So, it also boasts the use of an ACG starter to quietly launch. The company calls this “a silent transition” and honestly has us curious about what they’ll call the introduction of their electric vehicles.
Like the Honda SP 125, the Honda CB Shine 125 ditches the fuel injection carburetor. Although the manufacturer has not released the performance figures, we believe that these will be close to the numbers churned out by the engine of the SP 125, which produces 10.88 PS of power and 10.9 Nm of torque.
Because of conventional telescopic fork takes care of the suspension tasks at the front and twin springs at the back.
The BS-VI Honda CB Shine 125 engine is considered to be in the same tuning as BS-VI Honda SP 125 engine.
Honda CB Shine 125 will be available for sale in 4 color options:
White, Geny Grey Metallic, Rebel Red Metallic, and Athletic Blue Metallic.
