The sporty character of CB Shine SP receives a boost with the digital analog meter console and the dual tone side-cover. The combination of 5-split alloy wheels with disc adds to its distinctiveness while the strong 2-piece designed modern muffler leaves a lasting impression.
Revolutionary HET Tyre (Low Rolling Resistance Tyre)
The new CB Shine SP is Honda’s first motorcycle to be equipped with HET Tyre in India. Developed and patented by Honda (Patent received in 3 countries including Japan, applied in India)*, HET Tyre is built with a new compound that reduces the energy loss while maintaining optimum grip performance. It reduces rolling resistance by 15-20% thereby improving overall efficiency. Honda through this technology aims to pass on the benefit of improved fuel efficiency to customers and contribute to the environment by reducing carbon footprint.
Advanced Technology Enhancing Comfort & Convenience
CB Shine SP is equipped with Combi Brake System (CBS) with Equalizer technology (Much ahead of Government regulations, which will make CBS mandatory on all two-wheelers up to 125cc engine capacity from April 1, 2018). The unique Equalizer in Honda’s advanced Combi Brake System (CBS) distributes braking force proportionately between front and rear wheels simultaneously by pressing just the rear brake foot lever. This results in reduced braking distance & improved balance, leading to more confident riding compared to conventional braking. The 5-speed gear box helps reduce vibrations at high-speed, thus making even the long rides calm and comfortable.
The innovative ergonomics, longer-seats, longer wheel-base, an increased ground clearance and 5 step adjustable suspension on the CB Shine SP provide for comfort of both the rider and the pillion irrespective of the road conditions.
Automatic Headlamp On / AHO is a new Government notification effective April 1, 2017. As per this, the headlamp of all two-wheelers manufactured in India should be equipped to automatically turn on as vehicle starts. Key benefits of AHO for the new CB Shine SP rider are improved visibility of the vehicle in all conditions (dawn, dusk, fog, rain etc.)
Bharat Stage-IV or BS-IV is the new regulation for reduced emission level approved by Indian government. This will be mandatory in all two-wheelers starting April 1, 2017. In this regard, the new CB Shine SP is now also Bharat Stage-IV compliant!
Next Level Performance
At the core of CB Shine SP is Honda’s trusted 125cc Honda Eco Technology (HET) engine.
The max net power of 7.58kW (10.16 BHP) @7,500 RPM and max net torque of 10.30Nm@5,500 RPM provide for high power output at all speeds, making it the most refined engine in its category.
