The Honda Shine 100 bike comes with an all-new 100cc engine, one that promises to be a frugal one, along with an enticing sticker price.
- The Shine 100’s 100cc engine makes 7.61PS and 8.05Nm.
- Its braking duties are handled by drum units, along with the added safety net of CBS.
- A dual-pod instrument cluster has nothing that stands out in terms of features.
In order to take on India’s best-seller, the Hero Splendor Plus, Honda has launched the Shine 100, its first 100cc commuter offering. The Shine 100 is now also the most affordable Honda bike on sale.
Honda Shine 100: Price
With an introductory price of Rs 64,900 (ex-showroom, Mumbai), the Shine 100 is around Rs 7,500 cheaper than the Hero Splendor Plus, its chief rival. Given how closely contested for this segment this, the more aggressive pricing of the Honda will have its merits.
Honda Shine 100: Engine
At the heart of the Shine 100 is a brand new 100cc engine, one that churns out 7.61PS and 8.05Nm. While the torque figures are on par with the Splendor, the Shine 100 actually makes less power than the Hero bike. The engine comes mated to a four-speed transmission.
Honda Shine 100: Underpinnings
Underpinnings on the Shine 100 include a telescopic fork and dual shock absorbers. They’re as basic as it can get, which is evident in the fact that the shocks are not even preload-adjustable.
Honda Shine 100: Features
The bike continues with its spartan approach here as well. Apart from engine side-stand cutoff and an automatic choke system, the bike doesn’t really have anything to boast of. Its instrument console is a twin-pod, analogue one with no kind of features on offer.
All in all, the Shine 100 seems to nail the value for money proposition.
