Editorial Review of the Honda Shine bike

The Honda CB Shine has went on making its huge reputation since last 10 years as a simple and reliable commuter, which offers what a normal Indian consumers looks out in his daily commuter. It carries all the Honda genes of being a frugal and refined motorcycle, which gives all the traits a normal 100cc commuter has, although with a bigger heart. This was the same motorcycle, with which Honda made its foray into the motorcycling arena, while treading on its own path while simultaneously operating with the then Hero Honda (Now Hero Motocorp). The motorcycle has timely undergone many upgrades which maintain its freshness as a viable choice inn 125cc segment.
The Honda Shine follows a very simplistic approach of design, and may not appeal to those motorcyclists who love flashy graphics, muscular stance and gizmos on their ride. Nevertheless, it looks smart with a decent profile, featuring a bikini fairing around its simple headlamp, flanked by clear lens blinkers. The side profile also looks plain with fuel tank showcasing good knee recesses. The rear view of the CB Shine gels well with the overall design, with a large tail lamp. The instrument console too maintains the continuity of 'down-to-earth' manner, with a two-pod cluster showcasing speedometer and odometer on the left and fuel gauge on the right, with the tachometer being given a miss. The graphics flow well from the tank to the rear panel, without seeming to be overdone. The built and fit and finish is easily the best in class, a quality which has kept Shine outstanding amongst its rivals, in a typical Honda fashion. Overall, the motorcycle may not turn many heads on the road, but still it is one of those motorcycles which your father may equally praise, if you do so.
Powering this 'mid-sized' motorcycle of Honda is a 124.7cc, 4-stroke, air cooled engine, which manages to make a decent 10.3 PS of power and 10.4 Nm of torque. The CB Shine has always been known for a torquey motorcycle, and it still manages to live up its legacy, with a fabulous mid range performance, which makes this motorcycle so easy to ride even on higher steep climbs. The motor is a gem which makes the full use of the smooth gear ratios of the 4-speed gearbox, though a 5-speed unit would have made it even more lovelier. The motorcycle is a perennial of refinement and it's difficult to tell whether the engine is running, if kept idle.
Handling and ride quality of CB Shine continues to be impressive, even with a basic set up of telescopic front forks and simple hydraulic coil springs at the rear. The chassis is light and flexible and the CB Shine loves to be thrown around corners. And thanks to a stress-free engine, it is not at all a tiring machine in traffic, and the punchy motor makes it an advantage over the regular 100cc commuters, once you twist the throttle on open stretches. Brakes are in perfect rhythm with other mechanicals, and the optional front disc brake is a huge relief on safety front. Fuel economy is excellent for a motorcycle of this segment, which makes it even more desirable.
Satisfying on all the aspects, the CB Shine is a perfect step-up option for those who want a frugal and reliable 100cc commuter, but always wished that their motorcycle could have a bit more power for highways. Though the styling may look dated, but that's not the CB Shine's bull's eye, but where the CB Shine perfectly hits the dart is the performance, fuel efficiency and refinement, which are the most important characters for a motorcycle for setting up a benchmark. And it is this brilliance of Honda CB Shine, that even after more than 10 years of its existence, it continues to be the best selling 125cc motorcycle of India.
