Honda CB Shine SP (20)

Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd(HMSI) unveiled their all new Honda CB Shine SP, with an intention to expand the 125cc segment. It is the 15th product launched by HMSI in 2015. The refreshed 125cc commuter was teased as the ‘mystery model’ at the 2015 HondaRevFest.

The new CB Shine SP is powered by 125cc 4-stroke Advanced HET(Honda Eco Technology) engine, and this time it gets an additional gear. The 5-speed gearbox is claimed to provide an efficient combination of acceleration and comfort. The CB Shine SP comes equipped with the Combi-Brake System (CBS), which applies both brakes upon application for better rider-safety.

It also features one of the longest wheelbase in the segment and a higher ground clearance for practical and comfortable usage on all types of Indian roads. For this bike Honda claims a mileage of 65 kmpl.

On the visual front the CB Shine SP gets stylish with graphics on the front cowl and fuel tank. A re-sculpted fuel tank with the 3D Honda emblem and redesigned side panels give a sporty feel to the motorcycle.

Honda has equipped the new CB Shine SP with tubeless tyres, reducing the chances of immediate deflation in case of puncture. Even after the few redesigned touches the bike still retains the CB Shine silhouette. The bike does look a tad premium but not worlds apart.

We are impressed but disappointment too. The ‘SP’ suffix to the CB Shine has no explanation. We expected that SP could be the worthy smart-power upgrade introduced in this 125cc commuter. In the wake of Hero MotoCorp’s Splendor iSmart with i3S (idle stop/start system), we anticipated that Honda would gear up to set its foot in the smart-tech battle with their ESP (Enhanced Smart Power) stop-start technology. A tech that shuts off the engine in case of idling and puts it back on when the rider revs up the engine to move ahead, but no luck the CB Shine remains un-smart.

The bike will be available in Geny Grey Metallic, Athletic blue Metallic, Pearl White, Black and Rebel red metallic, and will roll out in three variants, the Self-Drum-Alloy (Rs.59,900), Self-Disc-Alloy (Rs.62,400) and the CBS version (Rs.64,400).
