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 is where the Shine SP comes in. The Shine SP has been entrusted with the responsibility to carry forward the legacy of the Shine. So, while the Shine SP becomes the logical successor to the Shine, the latter is still on sale. Quite unsurprisingly, the two bikes share a lot between them and here, in this Honda Shine SP vs Honda Shine comparison, we outline the differences between the two 125cc Honda motorcycles in India.
