Honda Shine 100 Warranty Increases Three Fold

News by Team Drivio | May 18, 2023

Prices for the commuter start from Rs 64,900 (ex-showroom Delhi). 

  • That makes it a whole lot more affordable than its chief rival, the Hero Splendor Plus. 
  • It has drum brakes at both ends with an analogue console. 
  • In terms of design, the bike follows its older sibling, the Shine 125. 

There is currently a 10-year warranty available for the recently released Honda Shine 100. The three-year basic warranty can be increased by up to seven additional years, bringing the total to ten years, at the company's discretion. 

Honda provided the Shine 100 with a six-year warranty (3+3 years) at the time of debut, but a warranty of ten years will always be music to the ears of the consumer. It also demonstrates the company's level of trust in its new 100cc commuter. The bike didn’t give us any issues on the reliability front when we test rode it some time ago and in terms of build quality, the bike was quite immaculate. That said, its brakes could’ve done with a little more initial bite. 

Honda, on the other hand, has introduced the Shine 100 in the states of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, and Bihar at a special introductory price of Rs 62,900. Compared to the Rs 64,900 price tag that was published at the time of debut in Maharashtra, it is now Rs 2,000 less expensive. In the aforementioned states, the Shine 100's already low price has decreased even further.

With such aggressive pricing, Honda is obviously doing everything in its power to carve out a niche for itself in the 100cc commuter motorcycle market. The bike competes against the Bajaj Platina 100, Hero HF Deluxe, and Hero Splendor+. We found the bike quite impressive when we rode it and we’re eager to see how the bike stacks up against the Hero Splendor.
