Honda CB Shine Overview

The executive commuter segment has always been a hotly contested segment composed of bikes within the 125-150 cc capacity. The consumer in this segment has started to expect more and more from manufacturers operating in this market segment. And the manufacturers are definitely stepping up their game. The situation right now is quite dynamic. With multiple offerings in the fray one wonders what kind of weight the Honda CB Shine will be able to throw around. Will it be able to meet the competition head on, or will it succumb to the fight? We attempt to find out more.

Honda CB Shine Engine & Transmission

Powered by a 124.7 cc four stroke, air cooled, SOHC engine featuring swirl induction. The engine with a bore x stroke ratio of 52.4 mm X 57.86 mm develops 10.12 Bhp of peak power @ 7,500 rpm and 10.54 NM of torque @ 5,500 rpm. Honda calls this engine an 'Optimax' engine and it has been engineered to provide optimum output with minimum input. This engine has been around for a while now, right from the time the CB Shine was introduced in 2006. It has received minor tweaks over the years but essentially remains the same unit as seen in 2006. This is mated to a four speed transmission featuring an all up shift pattern.

Honda CB Shine Mileage

Honda claims an average fuel economy figure of 65 kmpl under their standard simulated riding conditions. However as we know, in reality road conditions keep changing bit by bit depending on the time and the location as well. However in real world conditions, an overall fuel economy figure of 60kmpl sounds very much doable provided one rides gently and carefully.

Honda CB Shine Performance and Handling

The CB Shine has recently broken records for being 'India's all time highest selling 125cc motorcycle' and also First Ever 125cc motorcycle to achieve 30 lakh unit mark. All of this has been achievable thanks to the combination of robust engine strong frame and dynamic handling characteristics. The CB Shine gets a strong lightweight diamond frame that greatly aids in handling and providing rigidity to the bike. Suspension duties are handled by the telescopic front fork that features spring loaded hydraulic suspension and the same can be seen at the back too. The suspension is a bit stiff but soaks up bumps with ease. The engine pulls in a very refined and stress free manner and does not seem very harsh by nature. Bear in mind that this is a commuter bike and thus do not expect it to perform like a Moto GP bike. The bike runs 18 inch wheels both front and rear on which are mounted 80/100 tubeless tyres. The benefit of tubeless tyres is that in event of a puncture, the air leaks out very slowly thus ensuring there is no sudden loss of control and the vehicle can safely be brought to a halt. So here's a thumbs up to Honda for taking care of the safety aspect immediately. Another good although optional feature provided is the front disk brake. The 240 mm diameter disk brake helps in reducing stopping distances considerably thus helping more with the safety aspect. Additional features like supportive seats, self starter etc. all help in making this a bike that one can comfortably live with and manage over a long period of time.
