Q. How is Honda shine sp? Can I buy this?
  • The Honda Shine SP is one of the best looking 125cc bikes out there. The bike handles well, and the motor is refined and spunky. Overall, the Shine SP boasts good levels of fit and finish, and given Honda's penchant for making reliable bikes, is almost a no-brainer. The 124.7cc air-cooled and carburetted single makes 10.3PS at 7500rpm and 10.3Nm at 5500rpm. The engine gets Honda Eco Technology and, coupled with a more efficient 5-speed gearbox and low rolling resistance tyres. It returned an impressive mileage of 75km/l in our test.
  • Overall i see shine as good in this price range . It gives a good mileage of 50+ . But i suggest you that if you can increase your budget by 10k then go for "cb unicorn" because it even gives a good meleage and has more power .
  • If u want to purchase u can purchase . It's good for triple load , good milage , everything is fine in it.... according to me its super. Dear when you will purchase please tell cost of bike which u will purchase

Q. Which one is best, Shine SP or Hero Glamour?
  • Hero Glamour is 100cc bike which would give you more mileage with Mac Speed upto 90kmph. Where as you can throttle shine SP upto 110kmph beyond that it would be shaky.In terms of looks Glamour is my and speed is not so good, suitable for city or metro traffic but no pickup.You cannot drive on 2nd gear in city traffic on glamour.
  • I will suggest you to go for Pulsar 150 classic....I have shine sp and I know that Pulsar 150 is far more better than shine sp....and the price tags are same. The milages are also same....go to Bajaj showroom and take a test ride of Pulsar and you will surprise....

Q. Which bike among Bajaj V15 and Unicorn is better?
  • Hey there, both are good bikes in the 125- 150 cc segment. They both are great commuter bikes with decent average, however the Honda unicorn leads in average. Bajaj V15 has a slightly better pick-up and of course a good attractive look and feel to ride especially with a bulkier tank. The fuel capacity is also larger than on unicorn. The build quality of Honda seems to be better as evidently its a Japanese company. Overall if you want to go for a bike with decent mileage, looks great exhaust note and better fell of riding then go for Bajaj V15. If you only want a bike with good mileage, light-weight and hard built, go for unicorn.
  • Look, some people are biased on some brand positively or negatively. So, they would just say GOOD or BAD to all variants from the company of their bias. Ignoring that, I would say both bikes are equally good; though I would give V15 a small advantage due to its retro cafe racer looks which I find very appealing. I for one chose the V15 over Unicorn and after 2 years, I am happy with my decision because I don't take too much care of my bikes and yet this has not given me any trouble yet. Cost of spares and maintenance is also low
  • Hey! Well, both bikes have their own feasibility. V15 has a good manoeuvrability and an excellent balance & stance.Its better in terms of performance with an appealing exhaust note. V15 also looks pretty attractive and has more road presence. However Honda CB Unicorn has a more refined engine with less noise and is very smooth. It also feels lighter and small but does not have a great road presence. I'd suggest you to take a test ride.
