We don’t recommend anyone to do racing on a highway. This YouTuber is a professional and does the drag race so that you know the results and don’t have to perform the race on your own. We urge everyone to follow the traffic rules. Meanwhile, let us check out the result of this drag race between Raider 125 and Shine SP 125.
TVS Raider vs Shine SP 125 – Drag Race
The YouTuber starts by describing the features and appearance of Raider 125 because it is the newer of the two. The Shine SP has been around for a while now and doesn’t sport any changes. The Raider has a modern fascia with LED DRLs, LED Headlamps, Digital Display with a TFT Screen to show various information parameters to the driver, Smartphone Connectivity, USB, LED Taillamps, Bulb Indicators and much more. It is clearly the more modern of the two and looks quite sporty. The Shine 125 also features LED headlamps, Fully Digital Instrument Cluster, among other things.
The race starts off with the YouTuber riding the Honda Shine SP 125. His friend drives the Raider 125. The race is quick neck to neck with both the bikes having almost similar power and torque outputs. In the first attempt, the Raider 125 beats the Shine SP but not by much. It achieved a top speed of 116 km/h. The Shine SP reached a top speed of around 114 km/h. There was a second attempt with the drivers being swapped to achieve reliable results. However, this time around both these bikes were riding close to one another. There was no definite winner. The wind blast and changing riders affected the results. We would give the Raider 125 a slight edge because of being a newer bike.
