Honda SP 125 Latest Updates

Honda has announced its first nominal price hike for the SP125 in 2021. Prices for both trims have gone up by Rs 1,064 and Rs 1,159. The drum variant is now priced at Rs 76,074, while the disc variant costs Rs 80,369 (all prices ex-showroom Delhi).

Honda launched the BS6 SP 125 in November last year. It is Honda’s second BS6-compliant two-wheeler to go on sale in India and the first motorcycle from the Japanese brand to be updated for BS6 emission norms. It is powered by a new 124cc single-cylinder fuel-injected motor which generates 10.8PS at 7500rpm, 0.57PS more than the BS4 Shine SP. The engine features an ACG starter which makes sure the engine is cranked silently.

As far as the underpinnings are concerned, it continues to use the same diamond-type frame as the CB Shine SP. Suspension bits also remain the same telescopic fork and twin shock absorbers. The motorcycle comes to a halt using a 240mm disc/130mm drum up front and a 130mm drum at the rear with CBS as standard.

Other notable features include an all-LED headlamp, fully-digital instrument cluster with real-time and average efficiency, range, and even gear position indicator. Honda has also equipped the bike with new premium-looking switchgear and an engine kill switch as well.

The SP125 competes against the Bajaj Pulsar 125 and the Hero Glamour FI.

Editor's View of Honda SP 125

  • Upside

    Among the most stylish 125cc bikes. New BS6 engine delivers more power. Features like an LED headlight and ACG starter motor.

  • Downside

    One of the most expensive 125cc bikes on sale. The rear suspension is on the stiffer side. Disc brake lacks bite.

  • Our Verdict

    The SP 125 is among the best motorcycles launched by Honda in the recent past. It’s refined, fund to ride, frugal and offers a good list of features.


SP 125 Detailed Review

2019 has been a rather difficult year for two-wheeler brands in India. Sales have fallen massively, random government policies have been introduced, and there’s been the tedious task of meeting the upcoming BS6 emission norms. BS6, in particular, was a rather difficult one for manufacturers as it came with the added baggage of price hike.

All the brands played cat and mouse with each other to see which one bites the bullet and just like it did with the BS4 norms, it was Honda that rode in India’s first BS6-compliant two-wheeler, the new Honda Activa 125 a few months back. Soon it also launched its first BS6 motorcycle, the Honda SP 125. The new bike is basically the replacement of the Honda CB Shine SP, but the Japanese brand has dropped the ‘Shine’ moniker. We got the opportunity to take the new 125cc bike from Honda for a short ride and here’s what we think:

Gets a dash of youth

DSC1874

Honda hasn’t just plonked a new BS6 motor, it has also given the SP 125 a cosmetic update. The changes aren’t very dramatic with styling cues borrowed from the old bike, but the new motorcycle manages to look quite different. Up front, it features a sharp LED headlight, which seems inspired by the Honda CB Hornet 160R and above it sits a racked smoked-out windscreen. Moving forward, the fuel tank is edgier and the large fuel tank extensions give the new SP 125 a slimmer, but aggressive styling.

The vibrant graphics and the dual-tone finish help the new bike strike a visual chord. The rear section is more commuterish and doesn’t feature an LED tail light. One element I wish Honda hadn’t changed on the new bike are the alloy wheels -- the new ones look rather chunky. The slim, split units on the older bike looked much better.

DSC1865

As expected from Honda, quality levels are of the first order with tight panel gaps and a lustrous paint finish. But what really surprised us was the quality of the switches, which is a league ahead of any other Honda motorcycle built in India. Even the high-beam switch has been integrated into the passlight switch, which means the switchgear unit feels minimalistic and clean.

While the styling isn’t going to attract the attention of fellow motorists, Honda designers have given the bike a more youthful appeal without making drastic changes and that might be perfect for buyers in this segment.

Bump in power, drop in emissions

DSC1804

The common trend with BS6 vehicles has been a drop in power as compared to their predecessors (ask Yamaha and TVS). Gladly though, Honda has managed to buck that trend as the new bike is more powerful than its predecessor. Honda engineers have reduced the bore and increased the stroke of the new engine, resulting in a power bump of 0.6PS while torque is up by 0.5Nm. The numbers might not really look impressive on paper, but the new bike feels peppy and offers brisk acceleration. But what really impresses above everything else is the refinement. The new offering does proper justice to the Honda badge and is among the most refined 125cc bikes that I have ridden.

The addition of fuel-injection has made throttle response precise and better than the older bike. Most of our riding was in the city and the SP 125 felt happy puttering around in 3rd gear. The 5-speed gearbox is slick and clutch action is also light. Out on the highway, it managed to hold speeds up to 90kmph with a minor buzz on the handlebar.

DS1705

While we didn’t get to do a performance test, I am pretty confident, the SP 125 will post much quicker roll-on figures than its predecessor. This can be credited to its quicker throttle response, bump in power and, more importantly, loss of weight (the SP 125 is 5kg lighter compared to the older bike). And while managing the above, Honda claims that it’s 16 per cent more fuel-efficient as well! So, the bike offers more power and more fuel efficiency. Kudos to Honda engineers for pulling this off!

Feature-proof

DSC1860

High-ranking Honda officials had informed us earlier this year that most BS6 vehicles from their stable would be introduced with a new list of features and they have stuck to their promise. The Honda SP 125 is the only bike in the segment to feature an all-digital instrument console with a gear position indicator. In fact, the instrument console displays more details than on the CB Hornet 160R and the CBR250R. Other details on the console include real-time fuel efficiency and distance to empty, along with regular info such as fuel gauge speedometer, two tripmeter, odometer and a clock.

The layout of the console is neat and easy to read on the go. There’s also an eco-mode indicator above the console that helps the rider in getting better fuel efficiency. As mentioned before, it’s also the only bike in the segment to feature an LED headlight, however, we will have to wait till a proper road test to comment on its performance. Something that Honda CBR150R owners or even CB Hornet 160R owners won’t appreciate is that the new bike features an engine kill switch!

DSC1794

And just like the new Honda Activa 125, the SP 125 also features an ACG (Alternating Current Generator) starting system. Unlike a traditional unit, the starter motor is combined with the alternator unit and this results in a noiseless engine start -- it’s a system that needs to be experienced. However, it misses out on a start-stop system, which we feel should have been included.

Sticking to basics

DSC1565

The underpinnings of the new motorcycle are similar to its predecessor, however, the new SP 125 has grown in size. The new bike is taller, wider and longer, and this difference can be felt the moment you sit on the bike. The larger fuel tank (11 litres in comparison to 10.5 litres) gives the rider the impression of sitting on a much larger bike. Riding ergonomics is like any other commuter offering, which is upright and comfy.

DSC1840

The 5kg drop in weight makes the bike feel very agile to ride in urban conditions and you can change directions swiftly. However, it does require some effort to tip into fast corner, but then again this could have been done to make the targeted buyers feel comfortable and confident. It’s the same story with braking as well, as the initial bite might feel a bit lacking and one has to go hard on the lever. The suspension setup has been carried forward and I feel the rear is on the firmer side by commuter standards.

Honda is back!

DSC1644

Let’s cut the chase and get to the verdict - the SP 125 is the most Honda-like product from the Japanese brand in recent years. It’s refined and frugal, packs a punch, and offers a good list of features, making it a well-rounded product. Yes, at Rs 77,100 (ex-showroom), it’s a lot of money for a 125cc motorcycle. But with the advent of BS6, other bikes in the segment will also witness a steep price hike. The main question should be is it worth the Rs 7,100 premium over its predecessor? And the answer is a resounding yes. For the extra money, you are getting a more fuel-efficient, powerful and feature-rich product. So, if you’re planning to buy a premium 125cc commuter, you definitely can't give the SP 125 a miss.

    Ordered in Jan 2 2021 and got delivered in Jan 28. Initial impression is good. Features and looks are good too. Not much sporty and muscular like pulsar but definitely better than regular shine.Rode for almost 100kms till now, can feel vibration in foot rest around 50kmph and engine makes some weird noise while idling. Sometimes the vibration can be felt around 40kmph too.About the maximum speed, tried cruising till 80kmph but only achieved till 76kmph.About the brakes, rear brake is on the weaker side, needs to be pressed atleast twice. Front Disc is good though, but at this price point they should have given ABS.If you can spare another 5k then definitely buy disc variant, better only opt for disc as rear drum is not reliable at some times.Mileage is good, mostly rode around city roads and the instrument cluster shows 60kmpl as average mileage. Real time test has not been done from my side yet.I hope most of the vibration will be gone after 1st service if not then I'll update the status of the same.Final Verdict : Little bit muscular and premium commuter with nice features and good mileage.If you want longevity of bike and engine then I will definitely suggest this one.

    Before service 79kmpl, Second service after 83-84 kmpl.Third service after now is getting awesome kmpl 94.4 to 95.4 kmpl, Engine became too much smooth no noise more.Daily my travel is 180 kms from bangalore to my village chikkaballapur district.I think so many people's of sp125 users don't know them how to handle this bike accelerator, Because of this bike is not like that compare to other bikes.See accelerator giving continueously, Roughly, Give raising in up roads that never gives you kmpl.If you want more mileage from this sp125 then keep display in kmpl mode only then it will be varying according to how you giving accelerator how you handle this smoothly & all regarding giving accelerator.See performance is in your hands only how you can handle this sp125 accelerator.In the highways, Long drive downs slightly raise accelerator then even itself reaches to the speed of 80+ kmph then also it shows display 99.9kmpl/litre when comes up roads don't give more accelerator itself comes to down below 50 like 48, 47, 45 kmph green economy indication you maintain in most of up side going roads.How you smoothly give accelerator this is showing display will be 99.9km/litre maintain this display whatever possible at least at even worst condition should maintain display level 70+ to 80 kmpl /litre & try to keep maintaining display at 90kmpl to 99.9kmpl/litre between whatever you able to handled smoothly that much kmpl you will get from this wonderful bike that is in your driving hands only.Daily i am going to bangalore for office is 90km distance from my village.I will reach in 1 hour 45 minutes only.Daily 180km up & down daily 200 rs.Petrole now petrol rate is 94 rs + 😊😊😊 but anyway my sp125 is giving mileage now is for 1km 1rs petrole consuming.This is a awesome bike i never seen before.

    only 3 days have passed experiencing the sp125 disc version. my (single ride) use as daily commute 35.4 + 35.4 (=70.8) kms on a fixed Highway route. it gives me 70.8 kmpl besides 50-60 KMPH smooth variable speed. what is exciting, it's mileage is increasing each and everyday run. and I'll update the same next time according to usage. Within city I found 64 + kmpl. I ve on ride video recodings (in spells) as proof of test result. smooth engine start, minimum noise during ride, excellent pick up and braking mechanism, masculine look, great aerodynamic design, cool smart digital instrument console, good LED headlight and marking light electrical system and offcourse great mileage as stated earlier. M totally happy and somehow feeling thankful to a person who himself suggested this honda product though he owns a hero passion pro bs6 for which he is not satisfied. the persons who need more info about my real-time experience over this bike performance must drop me queries into my mail a******8@yahoo.co

    Honda sp 125 all reviewers hyped gear shifting problems are biggest issue.For the cost of 1lac we had to risk our lives.I'll speak negative, Show room people low knowledge and skill level is another bigger problems for all bs6 engines.Note my point service person never shows his inability, But try to convince you to live with problems.You can drive more than 52 km and gives vibration and with in 5 minutes you will feel pain.You can not drive more than 20 minutes continuously in highways.Also don't follow digital for mileage for me it shows 85km.But i check based on km run i got 75km only.Honda must understand we indians are not fool and spend money for their technical negligence.
