Honda Shine 125 Is Now OBD 2-compliant

News by Team Drivio | Jun 21, 2023

The popular 125cc scooter otherwise remains largely the same. 

  • Prices for the Shine 125 now begin from Rs 79,800, ex-showroom Delhi. 
  • Along with an OBD 2-compliant, there are no other changes to be seen. 
  • The Shine 125’s rivals include the Hero Super Splendor and the Bajaj CT125X. 

Last week, Honda made an update to their popular Unicorn model, and now they have turned their attention to another commuter favorite, the Shine 125.

The new Shine 125 comes in two variants: one with drum brakes priced at Rs 79,800 and another with disc brakes priced at Rs 83,800 (both prices are ex-showroom Delhi). Both variants see a slight increase of only Rs 1,113 compared to the previous model. The Shine 125 now faces competition from rivals like the Hero Super Splendor and the Bajaj CT125X.

The main change in the Shine 125 is the addition of an OBD 2-compliant engine, which produces the same power as before - 10.74PS and 11Nm. It is available in five different colors, with the black colorway being particularly attractive.

What Honda is offering along with the bike is a new 10-year warranty package. The standard warranty covers three years, and customers have the option to extend it for an additional seven years.

Everything else about the Shine remains unchanged. It retains its elegant design, twin-pod analogue console, and underpinnings. The braking system consists of a 240mm disc or 130mm drum at the front, and a 130mm drum at the rear. It rides on 18-inch alloy wheels fitted with 80-section tubeless tires. 

While we appreciate the minimal price increase from Honda, it would have been nice to see some cosmetic updates on the Shine 125. Perhaps some new graphics or sporty color schemes would have added a refreshing touch without affecting the affordability of the bike.
