The Honda Shine has been among the most successful nameplates in the 125cc motorcycle segment of Indian bike market. A frugal motor, comfortable ride and the reliability that comes associated with a Honda motorcycle – the Shine has always had a lot going for it. However, the advent of fresher competition has stolen a lot of limelight away from the Shine, which means that it becomes only necessary for Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India to launch a new product that can carry forward the legacy of the Shine. With similar targets in mind, HMSI has just come up with the new Honda CB Shine SP, the new model Honda 125cc motorcycle that becomes the logical successor to the Shine and promises to build upon the strengths of its predecessor in a fresh new package. As must be obvious, the two bikes share a lot between them and here, in this New 2015 Honda Shine SP vs Old Honda Shine comparison, we outline the differences between the two 125cc Honda motorcycles in India.
