About Honda CB Shine SP

Honda is known for its reliable and refined engines and the CB Shine SP is no exception. With its butter smooth 125cc H.E.T. engine producing a healthy 10.5 bhp, 10.3 Nm of torque and a mileage of 74.7 kmpl, Shine is a promising bike for those who are looking for a fuel efficient commuter with more power than 100 cc commuters. The bike is priced at ₹ 59,900 for the base version. The top end models are equipped with CBS (Combined braking system), self-start and alloy wheels. The bike is available in four colours

Honda CB Shine SP Overview

The Honda CB Shine SP is a more premium variant of the Japanese brand’s best-selling 125cc commuter motorcycle, the CB Shine. It comes with slightly more premium, sportier design elements, and more importantly, a 5-speed transmission in place of the CB Shine’s 4-speed unit. It also gets a semi-digital instrument cluster, which comes with a service-due indicator and clock as opposed to the spartan analogue instrument cluster on the CB Shine.


Honda launched the Shine BS6 in February 2020. It is priced at Rs 67,857 (ex-showroom Delhi) for the base drum version, which is a premium of Rs 7,867 over the CB Shine BS4 drum. Honda also launched the spiritual successor to the CB Shine SP, the SP 125 back in November 2019. It starts from Rs 73,452, a premium of Rs 7,409 over the drum variant of the Honda CB Shine SP BS4.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying CB Shine SP

Q. When the new model will launch?
  • As of now, there is no official update available from the brand's end. We would suggest you to wait for the official announcement.
  • Go to nearest local market
Q. CB Shine SP has 18-inch wheels. As I want to install a 100/90 tire, on 18 inches, it will increase the 20 mm diameter of the wheel and will lead to a drop in mileage. The best option I see is to install a 100/90 tire on 17 inch which is 7 mm lesser than the original (617mm). Technically it should not affect the mileage and should increase the stability. Please suggest
  • You may go for a wider tyre but upsizing the size of a tyre is increasingly becoming an obsession with people to create an added visual appeal to their bike. Moreover, It is advisable to go for an upgrade anywhere between the 3% margin for better performance and handling, increased grip, and creating a visual appeal. Do take note that upsizing the wheels and tyres may decrease the fuel efficiency of the bike and may result in a speedometer error on the bike if upsizing is not correct.
  • Yes

  • THE DIFFERENCE IS SP IS MORE PREMIUM THAN CB . AND NOW SP AND SHINE ARE BOTH DIFFERENT IN MARKET. SIR I WILL SUGGEST TO BUY ''''CD 110'''' DREAM.THIS BIKE FITS TO YOUR AGE AND MILEAGE AND BEST FOR DAILY COMMUTER. BUT IF YOU WANT ''SHINE'' OR ''SP'' YOU CAN BUY ANY OF THEM BY YOUR CONSULTANT. ALMOST '''5K''' IS THE PRICE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SP AND SHINE.

    Pretty useless

    The best part of this engine is that you will not hear it until revved too hard, its smooth, its silent and 60 kmph is its sweet spot to be. City rides would be buttery smooth but i will not recommend this for highways as due to its short gearing the fifth gear is pretty useless. and if you go beyond 60 kmph it will feel strained and there will be noticeable vibrations too. i totally expect this issue will be there in sp 125 bs6 too as when i rode it it felt less punchy, not to forget that bs6 version is Fuel Injected so its power delivery stays linear throughout. i cant tell you that at what rpm the engine is performing well as there's no tachometer. Brakes perform pretty well and the front disc has a great stopping power the weight of the bike is very accommodating and it it gives you a big bike feel too. I find styling of bs4 version better than the bs6 ones. My overall verdict would be that if its your choice for city commutes with a very refined engine you are not going wrong..!
