Q. Which is best between disc and drum in Honda Shine 125 ?
  • Difference only 5 thousands , if you have go for disc , otherwise you should take drum , this bike is abs automatic break system so don't need disc
  • If you have money that is valid only for limited time. go for disc. Drum should be enough for a 125cc bike
  • Not much difference. Single disk available only to front wheel. Doesn't make sense. Prefer drum

  • Excellent and comfortable with having large luggage that's why I feel the comfort of the Honda PCX scooter, plus excellent in fuel consumption having and averaging of 50 kilometers per liter. So for me, it's a great scooter by performance.
