    This is a tricky question. As it all comes down to the manner in how an individual handles his bike and uses them. However, having had both the bikes I had sold my old Honda Shine SP for the Yamaha Saluto and it didn't disappoint me. Yes, it's pick up is on the lower side and sometimes one can feel embarrassed when others just zoom past you on the highway. However, if you are looking for a city bike that is easy to manoeuvre and save on, it is the bike to go for. It doesn't give the claimed 78 km/l mileage but if ridden within the economical speed limits it gives you close to 65-68. I ride almost 70 km to n fro work through the busy city streets as well as the open Rajarhat expressway in Kolkata. It has not been a disappointment. In fact, I am overwhelmed with its performance. My bike is now 3 years 6 months old and now I find my bike's chain often turning loose which signifies that I might soon have to replace them. In the 5 years 8 months of my Honda Shine SP, I had to change the chain twice.

    Yamaha joined the 125cc bandwagon by riding in the new Saluto a few years back. The Yamaha Saluto with its sharp lines is an appealing motorcycle. But it doesn’t offer the same refinement as its other Yamaha siblings and only makes sense if you’re in the hunt for an affordable and stylish 125cc bike. While, the Honda CB Shine still remains a safe bet if you’re keen on buying a 125cc commuter. The simple styling and frugal and reliable engine have made the CB Shine a product that is hard to be ignored. Pricing is on the higher side and the styling wouldn’t appeal to all but it ticks all the right boxes of being a proper 125cc commuter. Whereas, 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. All these bikes are good and durability will depend on how it will be maintained.
