The Honda CB Shine is a commuter class vehicle with a set of packages to deliver. Compared to other brands and their 125 cc motorcycles, the Honda CB Shine does do better from figures. It is the leader in that aspect. Lets delve more into this people’s bike, the Honda CB Shine.


The Honda CB Shine does not stand out when it comes to looks. With a blatant color combination and with normal looking graphics, the Honda CB Shine stands out as the highest selling Honda motorcycle in India. With simple lines and uncomplex designs, Honda has tried to give the CB Shine a simple yet attractive look.

To capitalize on the simplicity aspect or to bring down the price, the instrument console is basically analog which actually fits the commuter motorcycle image with which Honda is selling.

The bike is available in three variants depending on the brake system. Disk, Drum and CBS (Combi-Brake System), all three having tubeless tires.

Powered by a 15cc air-cooled engine, it produces 10.2PS of power and 10.3 Nm of torque. At the front, the bike uses telescopic front forks and at the rear twin shock absorbers for commuting suspension issues. As mentioned earlier, the three variants introduce a Combi-Brake System which uses drum brakes in the rear and disk brakes in the front as an option. With a tank capacity of 10 litres the Honda CB Shine promises a mileage of 65kmpl.

Furthermore, it is a comfortable commuter as well which helped the bike skyrocket in market-sales.
