Honda Shine 125cc is now Honda CB Shine

Honda India has upgraded its Shine 125cc to Honda CB Shine. The launch was eventually clubbed with that of upgraded Unicorn too.

It has to be noted that the Honda CB Shine is obviously not a new model and it looks like a strategy by the Honda India to just rename all its bikes as Honda CB versions.

As the prices have gone high, Honda aspires to position itself as premium bike brand in the big Indian market. Although bike lovers come to an agreement that the features Honda offer are hardly any worthy as what is called premium as compared to what is offered by its adversaries.

With that being said what are new reasons for more shine on the new Honda CB Shine?

New 3D Honda Emblem on the fuel tank
New graphics
Handle bar weights
New viscous air filter
Maintenance-free battery

The new Honda CB Shine will now be compliant with the latest emission norms that came to effect from April 01, 2010.

Design and looks of the new Honda CB Shine
The fuel tank comes with supporting knew recess and neatly chiseled. The cap is retained as in the old, chrome and the new 3D Honda wing emblem on the fuel tank gives that edge coupled with the graphics that add to the elegance.

The new handle bar weights will add to the stability during a ride and gives extra control to the rider. The mirrors are tweaked to a trendier shape and the body-colored grab rail adds to the sheen while riding.

Honda Shine

The Ergo-tec design is developed on the basis of human engineering to offer less fatigue and more comfortable seating and ride position for rider as well as pillion. The diamond-framed light weight design offers even distribution of weight on the bike and so there is extra stability and control.

Engine of the new Honda CB Shine
There is nothing new as to the power plant of the new Honda Shine. It runs on a 125cc ‘Optimax’ engine generating a power of 10.3 BHP. The Optimax Engine comes with tall gearing which is better than the previous version. The Honda claims that the Optimax is capable of generating maximum torque at low rpm, implying better pickup and mileage. As to the new Optimax engine, it is actually a 4-stroke, air-cooled and single-cylinder engine – nothing but scaled down variant of Unicorn engine. The engine takes off the bike from 0-60 km speed in 5.3 seconds.

The new viscous filter will enable to cut on the maintenance costs and Honda promises leakage-free and maintenance-free battery.

The rear tyre comes with patented tuff-up tube which is more puncture resistant. Additionally there is an option of front disc brakes which is more responsive than the conventional drum brakes. It also comes with self start option for convenient city ride.

Color choices and pricing of the new Honda CB Shine
The new Honda CB Shine comes in 5 shades:
Rebel Red Metallic
Geny Grey Metallic
Vibrant Blue Metallic
Black with red stripes
Black with grey stripes

The Delhi on-road price of the new Honda CB Shine varies according to the option chosen:
Honda CB Shine (kick start, drum brakes, spoke wheels) — Rs. 45,813
Honda CB Shine (self start, drum brakes, alloy wheels) — Rs. 50,013
Honda CB Shine (self start, disc brakes, alloy wheels) — Rs. 53,165

Last word about Honda CB Shine
With all being said, there is nothing so attractively new in the Honda CB Shine and Honda lovers will surely be disappointed with the CB Shine. It is a fake launch by Honda to re-impress the CB on all its brands; looks like.

    Whether the new Honda CB Shine bike is really an attractive and loaded with required new features ?

  3. byju mumbai

    In a major honda show room on road have to pay Rs 60300.Is it worth to pay this much for this? Disc brake with self start(but alloy wheel).Can,t they manufacture spokes wheel in disc version?What,s ur true opinion about this?And why this showroom’s taking 45 days waiting time ?Is there any other difficulties with this stuff?

  4. shine is good bike but parts r costly.

    farhan saleem like his bike-SHINE>>>>

  5. Vimal

    The new Honda CB Shine looks very nice and having a riding confort concept but overall the spare parts are very costly. Why the honda is sustained his monopoly for making available the spare parts of their segments ? This monopoly should be broke up in view of customers’ satisfaction as on the other hand the India’s largest two wheeler selling company, viz. Hero Honda gives the facility of availability of genuine spares parts with their authorised showrooms as well as in the open market also.

    Honda CB Shine is very good riding comfertable & its firing is very smooth.
    such its enjoy quality,

    No doubt its quality is very fine. Really an attractive and loaded with required new features.

    But we have paid 56,804/- without asseries (Rs. 1300)
    Total paid Rs. 58,104/-
    For Disc brake, alloy wheel with self start.

    Suggestion : Its require 5th gear for better perofmance.

  8. Sathish Babu

    I bought new honda cb shine black with red color. Vehicle is excellent. So smooth to drive and very relaxable. But it gives 50kmpl mileage in city. Starting pickup and running pickup is superb. As well as new cb shine look was superb and petrol tank Honda emblem makes the bike with great look equal to Unicorn. People who choose unicorn, they can choose CB shine. becas same look and less weight and good mileage in shine.

    plz tell about vibration problem. and top speed.


    • raj

      i am disappointed with shine speed . as speedometer displays top speed of 140 kmpl the bike gets vibrating on above 40 kmpl. and it is hard to ride it on above 70 kmpl .

  12. Gopi

    I have testrided both pulsar 135cc and honda shine, i fee more comfort in shine. Also after so much surveys shine is better in all aspects than pulsar 135cc in terms of seating, maintenance and engine. So booked shine and waiting for it :).

  13. Vimal Sharma

    I have been surveying the market for the last 3 months after selling my old Hero Honda Passion (2001) and I am still very confused to compare between Honda CB Shine and Hero Honda Passion Pro (New). It is to mention here that as per my survey the Shine is very perfect in view of safe rising with power but on the other hand the Passion Pro is the best one in view of Mileage.

    Anyone can suggest me which one I should buy if I require better road performance, safe riding and better fuel mileage with service also.

    • vishwas

      I think u should go for CB shine.

    • RAYAT

      Go for Honda Shine Bro…

      If u r looking for biking in the city, there is no bike like this in 125cc segment.. More Power, More Mileage, Low Maintenance and decent looks … u can ride it for the next five years….

      If u want to bike for racing then go for any other bike above 150cc…..

      so stop comparing and go for Honda Shine …

  14. Vijay Karla

    CB Shine is an excellent bike in 125cc segment. The new version of Shine comes with improved gear ration, damping handlebar vibration at higher speeds. Delivering a mileage of 60+ with optimum pickup is the cool feature of this bike.

  15. Nikhil

  23. hemant

    For last three years I am using Honda Shine. This bike is a perfect bike. Engine is very smooth,but the problem of this bike are

    1.The head light (visor) is rested on only two nut-bolts. It is very heavy, since the headlight is attached to it. After a year or so, due to heaviness / or using the bike on rough roads, the visor will break. I have changed the visor twice. This is the design defect. Company should do something on this.

    2.Another problem is that battery panel is having screw, which will be rusted & will not be easily removed , if you want to remove for filling the distill water. Suggestion: Company should introduce lock system like splendor.

    3. Body graphics looks very goddy. I have seen many imported vehicle. Their graphics look stunning.

  24. Sufiyan S.Kachchi

    I am Sufiyan i bought cb shine (kick.drum,spoke) on 20/09/10 this bike run nice but i am dispappointed,When the person buy a 50000 rupees bike why company charged additional for accesaries.Like leg gard and engine gard.Thoese accesaries company should give free with bike.

    Don’t buy Honda Shine….It has inherent gear box problem…the bike will stall in the middle of the road and very risky…

    • santanu

      yes, its true. the gear box has a design smoothness.Dont buy this byk.

  35. satheesh

    yes it has lot of vibration even after 50 itself. it also gives some strange sound after 60. My strong recommendation is not to buy this bike

  36. shridhar

    I had taken shine march 2010…Shine is smooth and good..suggested to keep vehicle avg speed around 45-50 for initial three service…
    as a result Engine keeps smooth at 70-80 speed as well after 4th service…joy to ride and very comfortable..mileage never goes below 58..
    Gives 64 mileage at 45 speed drive..
    I have installed Tcop Device which give me location information of my bike through sms to my mobile…
    Altogether i am having happy ride..

  44. kundan tiwari

    hiii my HONDA SHINE is very good performance in every conditions,in between50-60 it’s gives 67 mileage $heavy pickup bike if u wil maintain in every 2000 km. its demerit is CHAIN SPOCKET $CHAIN ,5TH GEAR IS NECESSARY TO SMOOTH RIDING.

  45. Rajan

    I am regular bike rider to do long drives with better fuel factor I have taken CB shine, Let it complete around 5000+ kms, And I will do non-stop drive for 4hrs40mts Bangalore – Chennai drive, My old record is 4hrs.50minutes 330 kms non-stop drive in 100CC 4 stroke bike covering 70kms each hour on Road. If Any one Sponsors for event [ With Fuel Bill and Some Premium for Riding Gears there I am for publicity champion for bike ]
    Now Average of 65+ for 45 kmph speed drive I am getting with mix of bangalore Traffice drive.

    One have to use to gear shifting pattern to avoid gear spillage now it is not there. Depends on Driving style and Road conditions some Vibration comes then I recalled the Key Tag genetates the sound. It is at par to that of 100CC bike but you get some Extra power when you want to cut and drive in Narraw Lane that is advantage but you should practice to do that, Since Extra power may create panic to other people in the road and the vehicle is noise free one others donot know whether vehicle is nearing them or not. Be careful when you try to overtake others or use horn if required only.

  46. Aadesh singh

  53. Danish


    I bought honda shine 15 days ago. Bike is running smooth. I would like to give few suggestions. At my home town i purchased shine 3 years. I drove it for 300 km and took only one break. The drive was very smooth. No noise in chain after so long drive.
    Advice: Dont use self start first thing in the morning or after 2,3 hours. It will spoil your battery very soon.
    Keep changing engine oil before 2000 km. One more thing try to use one petrol (not switching to xtra premium, speed, general petrol). Also dont let bike go in reserve, because petrol at the bottom of the tank may have some dust which may go into you carbeurattor.
    Dont accelerate very much after starting any time (any bike if you are using, especially in the morning).
    Try to run first few km between 40-50 km and then you can accelerate.

  54. kasthuri

    a real cruiser with a mileage of 57-60 kmpl. smooth. gets even better after the first 1000 kms

    • Rajan

      IT is with MRF Zapper FS- Y Tyres and Tube in my CB Batch of Shine. Also the HAndle Weights are Dummy one they use just plastic handle plugs. IT is better you buy After market one [ Magnet / Alloy Based from Unicorn or other vehicle and fix it ] The Electricial Switch position is ockward means Turn Indicator Switch / Horn switch should have Better ergonomics. Also The vehicle lags City light or parking light which is required. The Chain Cover has Extra Gap And Rear Swing arm There is Gap in the stiffner should be closed with help of some putty or piece of resin / Gel.
