Honda Shine 125cc Review

by Deepak on September 8, 2008

I am really in love with Honda’s cute starter segment bike, the Honda Shine. With 125cc engine, I feel that this bike does a very good job in giving you comfort, mileage and descent looks. Here’s a review of the various aspects of Honda Shine.

Honda Shine 125cc

Styling: The looks of the bike is not sporty like the Glamour, the competitor from Hero Honda. But I feel that the bike has a different focus than the latter. The bike has been designed for the ‘office commuter’ in mind who needs plain and neat looks. If you are a college student, choose to buy the Honda CBF Stunner which has the same 125cc engine but a sporty and trendy outfit.

Performance: Many users have told me that the bike vibrates when it is taken above 60 km/hr. But one has to remember that this is a 125cc bike and not a 150cc one. But at low speeds, the acceleration is fantastic. The bike gives a mileage of more than 50kmpl for sure but it can give higher number if you maintain the right air pressure in the tires and get your bike serviced regularly.

The bike has very good handling, the ergonomic seats make it very comfortable for all day riding. Gearing is a noticeable feature in Shine. A owner of Honda Shine says – Gearing is very user friendly.  Frequent gear shifting is not required.  You can ride at quite low speeds without down shifting. For example:  if I am going in 4th gear and I approach a speed breaker, I have been able to slow down to around 20kmph, cross the speed breaker and then accelerate again all the while remaining in 4th gear. Wow! That makes city riding more comfortable.

The dashboard has the basic features built into it. Speedometer and ODO meter on the left and fuel gauge with three indicators (high beam, signal, and neutral) on the right. The indicator lights look cute in oval shape, don’t you think so? And they are bright enough so that it is visible even in broad day light.

Verdict: Honda Shine sets itself apart from other bikes in 125cc segment. You know why? It is a original Honda make. Honda is known for high quality of parts, durability and pride of ownership. Overall this is a good bike which I would recommend to my uncle, but not my friend!

Honda Shine 125cc Specifications:

Engine Type: 4 St, Air Cooled OHC Single Cylinder

Honda’s commuter bikes are very bland. They need to give it some style and features like digital instrumentation.

This is a good choice for long drive in highways if you drive in a constant speed like 60-70 , but not good for rash drivers. It is very comfortable for tall persons my self is 6 and half feet tall and is so comfortable for me to drive when compared to bajaj and yamaha , smooth engine

Hi All,

I am looking to get a bike…
My choices are : Honda Shine and Hero Honda Glamour.
************************************************
I read reviews on Shine at this site and others….
My friends telling me that in Shine Vibration is much. If we ride beyond 50+, its vibrating ….
Got all other feedbacks as positive except Vibration prob.
Iam very much impressed by Shine looks and appeal…
Other one Glamour not looking good when compared with Shine.
Other like Passion Pro and Plus are not that good looking.
Can I include Yamaha Gladiator in my choice….Any info abt that…

Need all of yours suggestions……….. Can anyone help me out of confusion.

Shine is much more powerful than Glamour in all terms. Glamour delivers 2 KMPL more than shine. Shine is more comfortable in terms of riding position and refinement. Glamour’s engine is just an updated Splendour engine and named it as Quantum core engine. The rear suspension of shine is little stuffer than glamour for solo ride, but with a pillion, Shine is god in all terms. Service is not an issue. In my area, some centers offer bad service, while others are very good. The only problem is to find out which is best- This problem lies in all the motorcycle manufacturers. Tips ; Drain engine oil after every 2500Kms, Use Motul 10-30 oil ( I found it good inmy shine ). first strat of the day should be used by the choke.

Karthik March 30, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Hi Karthik,

This bike is not meant for goods carrier and you can’t simply store things in it. You have reasonable space for the riders. Not to carry Milk cans, rice bag or something. Do you have any idea which bike is having the storage area under the seats? (Except scooty, activa etc.,)

My two day old Honda Shine had problem with rear shock absorber. It use to make loud noise on crossing any hump or pot hole. So I brought it to the notice of the GM at sales point Silicon Honda at Bangalore and got them replaced under warranty.

I think the shock absorber and chain will be the parts that will have recuring problem.

Iam very much happy that this is the best bike which we can ever buy,because its durability ,slow speed and high balance etc is very high .

KS June 4, 2009 at 7:14 pm

I purchased Honda Shine on March 2009. The main drawback is milage. Hardly i get 50-55kmpl in city rides. It is fond of drinking petrol.

The Gear box seem to have some problem. While on drive, the gears do not lock immediately. So if you leave the clutch some life threatening sound comes from the engine.

Pick up is good. Riding comfort is good. But look is not that nice.

Overall I doubt whether its worth for the money and i never expected Honda would deliver a bike of this kind.

Hi, I am Goutam. I have this bike from July-07 and it has covered 40,000 kms. I want to say that it is a Excellent bike. Its acceleration is very fast. And mileage response is very fast, means if you drive in between economy range, it’ll give 70+ & if you ride it very roughly at low speeds or over 90s at highways than it’ll come down upto 35. I have gone upto 800 kms longrun on this bike but there is no problem in it. In 125cc segment, it is the best followed by Gladiator. Want 5th gear.

I have Honda shine 125 cc bike.this bike is not good at all and who review this bike don’t know any thing about this bike.i think this person get money from Honda company.
This bike having no pick up and if you accelerate then your bike will stop.again you have to start.I thought Honda is a good company,but Bloody cheater.
Better buy any hero Honda bike.and one more thing the resale value is also very bad.even people don’t want to buy this bike.
And servicing is also not good at all.The service center only need money,they don’t know any thing about the bike.How come a company like Honda doing all such thing.Bloody cheater.

Hello
Shine is good but it has some limitations that is millage it gives only 55-60 KMPL in normal rides and chine pockets problem is there as well as maintenance is high compare to other bike, cost is around 60 Thousand + and we have to wait for taking this bike. And the major think is present situation the competation bike is HONDA SHINE

There is no doubt that Shine will be a better option than passion pro. Almost at the same price U’ll get 25cc more with very high power output of 10.3bhp whereas Passion pro delivers 7.5bhp only. Performance is also far better than the Passion pro, Glamour & S.Splendour. It is the best in its class. So, go for the same.

chinmaya joshi August 15, 2009 at 7:45 pm

Although shine is one of the costliest bikes in the 125 cc segment it is worth every penny you pay ,the acceleration is fantastic and the pick up is more better than what you can expect out of a 125 cc bike .frequent gear shifting is not reqd at all.should suit for all age groups.

hi all

I was using HONDA SHINE for the past 1 year, i m happy with the ride & everything,but the thing which makes me unsatisfy is its rear tyre.Yes as its dia is so less the bike getting unbalancing when apply the rear brake at rainy season or in a wet roads.. I was slipped due to this for 2 times.

Reply

twincam September 10, 2009 at 7:54 pm

I have owned a honda shine from Nov. 2006. bad vibration and hard shock absorbers for about 10,000 kms. after that it got much better and now has run 23,000 kms. now engine is very smooth and suspension is also softer after i retuned the spring to the softest setting. I have put a 100/90 large tyre for softness. the bike is still almost brand new after abuse for 3 years. It has extremely fast pick up upto 55 km/hr. faster even than pulsar 150, (which is my older bike). Bike is still brand new. No rust or fading of paint anywhere. I wanted to buy the “Fastest Indian” 220 pulsar but this bike is so good that I am confused.

Shine is a 125 cc machine and cant be compared with Passion pro. There is huge difference in power delivery between these two. Passion delivers 5 KMPL more than shine. If you want an alternative to shine, go for Twister or Passion Xpro( Yuga engine).
Yuga will be a perfect choice for you.

Hi, I have HONDA shine 125cc . this is one of the worst bike in 2 wheeler segment.
Why i will explain.
1.Milage is very bad i.e 50 km
2.Rear tyre is very thin and weak
3.Not suitable for more then 2 people.
4.Battery backup is very bad
5.Every morning self start is not possible.
6.Night head lamp is very less focus
7.After 60 km/h bike will vibrates.
8.For 125 cc bike is requried 5 gares but shine have 4 gares only.
9.This bike is suitable for class roads
10.No value for money.
So dont go for this bike.

I am a pride owner of HONDA SHINE. I drive 60kms every day and it gives me a good mileage of 63km/ltr. This bike is matchless in 125 CC segment.
On the other part the tecnicians at the Show room are scary,they do nothing but wash the bike.The Honda Company need concentrate on the customer satisfaction in the aspect of service.
Finally Honda Shine is THE BEST in 125 CC segment

Hi All,

I’m givin fair feed back on this bike, I bought this bike in June 2007.

Pros,

1. Comfort for a long trip and in the city too (I mean ergo)
2. Appeal
3. good at class roads.
4. no color fadding
5. Mileage is not so bad like other bikes.

Cons,

1. Unsecure while you acceralte more than 60, hell Vibration.
2. gear lock failures
3. starting problem
4. seating is small
5. skids during rain.
6. spares very costly and no durablity.
7. Authorised Service Centers are very less and they are very bad too in treating the customers

conclusion :
It is GOOD bike while comparing to others, except YAMAHA.
At the safety point for the Harsh riding, please don’t go for Honda Shine…
Belive me just I left my bike to the unauthorised service center because the bad treatment and service of Authorised centers. bought the core spares for Rs.579/= for a bike which still not crossed 12500 KMS.

for the new buyers, choice is yours.

Regards,
S Nanda, Chennai.

Hi
I just wanted to let every one know the my BAD experiences with HONDA Bike to share the info to the customers who are willing to purchase HONDA Bike.
I have been using Honda shine from past 2 and half yrs. I had faced many problems. I personally feel this is not a good bike to choose and their service location especially JSP Honda Kukatpally is very poor. Here are the major problems i noticed with this bike:
1) Battery what they offering initially with this bike is very low Quality & very in-efficient got FAILED AND replaced in 13 months.
2) Break shoe is not good quality and got replaced in 6 mths.
3) Chain sprocket is very Bad. IT STARTED GIVING NOICE WITH IN 1 YEAR.
4) Drums are failed with in 2yrs. This is very costly to repair since need to replace entire alloy wheels as there is no provision to correct the drums.
5) Service center (JSP Honda, kukatpally.Hyderabad) is very poor. When we give the bike for servicing they will always try to change/replace the parts to increase their business.

I have a Honda Shine, bought 1 years back. Upto 1st service it gives me a good result, but after that i continuously getting a problem’s. Every time I informed during servicing but after servicing vehicle runs good but after 3-4 days again same problem. I bought this vehicle in Silvassa at Emperor Honda, service is very poor, they are only doing washing and giving back during free servicing.

Problem =
01. Although in Top gear some time i feel vehicle is running in 2nd gear.
02. in long drive i.e. 100 KM rear Tyre gets vibrating.
03. After Three Months of purchase i can start the vehicle without choke. Right now also i am starting with choke.

Mirrors, saree guards are the default accessories.
U need to pay extra for seat cover, crash guard, engine guard, coating, tank cover, number plates etc. It will cost you around Rs 65,000 including accessories, registration, insurance etc (in Bangalore). It will deliver an approximate mileage of 65km/l (on highway) and around 58km/l in city.
CB Shine (the upgraded version of Shine) is an excellent bike in 125cc segment.

Hi friends
I am using Honda shine from last one year. I have found few things while riding this bike. This bike looking good but the thing is that its average mileage is 52kmpl. If you ride more than 60km/hr this bike is vibrating (shivering). This bike is skidding, If you apply sudden breaks (60km/hr speed). while drizzling, even for 50km/hr speed also, this bike is skidding. This bike have the self start but if you start in the morning it will not work most of the time.

Hai Friends!!!!!!!!!
I purchased HONDA SHINE on 23-04-2009 in mumbai. I felt the bike is very good initial dates. Servicing at PILOT HONDA Chembur is very bad. If you cross 40km/h you feel lot of noise from the bike. recently i just parked my bike in rain for 6 hours, later when i have started the bike i observed abnormal sound from engine. i have opened engine oil tank cap i found entire tank with water and some white colour fluid ( may be emulsion formation with oil and water). i have spent lot of money for cleaning. still bike is in bad condition. Mechanic is saying that so many shine bikes are coming with this problem in mumbai.

Dear all,
This message is for people who wish to buy Honda Shine. My advise is not to buy this bike. This is said by not only me. People who are experienced with this bike always says that the bike behavior is worst. I did a extensive literature search in internet about Honda Shine and found that there are many owner of Honda Shine are not at all satisfied with that bike. Saying the following common problems with them.

1.Milage is very bad i.e 40 km
2.Rear tyre is very thin and weak, hence less break function
3.Battery backup is very bad
4.Service is very worst
5.Every morning self start is not possible.
6.Night head lamp is very less focus
7.After 55-60 km/h bike will vibrates.
8.For 125 cc bike is requried 5 gares but shine have 4 gares only.
9.Spare parts are not available with service center many times eventhough they are pretty costly
10.No value for money.

Amoung the above said problems the problem No. 7 & 9 is experienced by maximum number of owner of Honda Shine
So dont go for this bike.

Dear Wasim,

If you want to buy 125 CC segment bike I can say you to buy Yamaha SS 125, perfect bike and it is rated 91 % in bike advice and mouthshut websies. Go through these sites then you may know about this bike. This bike has all the benefits of Honda shine, even more benifit than shine. Just put a key word of Honda shine in the search box of mouthshut web site, you may get the bad revew of most of the honda shine owner. Main problem is VIBRATION after 55 kmph and other serious problem. Dont’t go for any vehicle from Honda. Even though the brand lead, they are not concentrating the quality which people expect.

Unicorn= The masterclass refinement + all above with a small reduction in mileage

Mr. Ghosh…

Don’t buy Honda Shine. There are so many problems faced with their customer. To confirm this just see in http://www.mouthshut.com review on the product. My personal advice is to buy Yamaha SS 125. King of bike in 125 CC segment.

Honda Shine good bike for smooth rider, It give good milage more than 60 KMPL. Use service at honda showroom infront of you. for long drive it is good bike. I used to move my home town form Vizag(AP) to Jeypore(Oriss) 220 KM. 100 KM Plain hiway and 100 Km full gaat road very difficult but I feel comfort with this bike

Hi all,
I am very confused about buying yamaha ss125(Gladiator) or Honda shine or Suzuki slingshot
All are 125cc bikes. I have the following expectations.

I dont care about,
1. Decent & family look (only uncles will look for it)
2. Resale value

But I care about,
1. Quality engine
2. Good performance
3. Racing experience

I can compramise on Mileage (i.e around 48 to 53 would be good)

Can any one advise me which one should I go for, either Yamaha ss125 or HOnda shine or Suzuki slingshot.

regards,
Karthik.

I am using honda CB shine from past 1 year in Bangalore and crossed 6000+ kms .I found no problems in the Bike till now.Decent Milage of 55 Kmpl,good pickup and comfort ride is a plus.Great Bike if u want to travel < 50 Kms in city or highway in a day.I rate this bike as 7/10 compared to other bikes in this segment.
I strongly agree that the Bike will Skid during Rain and bit of vibration above 70 speed.
Main point is Best pick up at low RPM, so less gear changes.Quality of Bike is very good, But the after sales service is very poor!! So go for it if you are a smooth-Classic rider and planing to use this bike very smoothly.

2.Rear sid tyre is too thin so that you have to bee very carefull while turning low radius
3.use of low quality paint ,is is getting a shaggy look even before its first anniversary :(

hi all,
I had traveled over 43,000 kms by simple 1 1/2 years on my shine. there is some advice to run this bike.
1- if u riding the shine in a plain of sunny days for a long trip,use separate coolant for the engine about 50mls.
2- don’t use the coolant for a long hill trip and try not to drive in the fourth gear.
3- if u wanna ride for 1000-1500kms straight non-stop, change the oil with-in 1500-2000kms.
4- for a night riding, be cautious of your stops.

Reply

krishGK June 18, 2011 at 10:50 am

5- riding around 60 kmph is shaky and high vibration, but above and below are good.
6- above 80 kmph is a real tricky by losing the ground clearance. if a slight breeze can skid your bike b’coz of thin rear Tyre.
7- good maintenance will give you 70+ kmpl, but for bad will gives u at least around 40 kmpl.
8- plz change ur batteries and head lamp bulb, and change the fork oil by 15000-18000 kms according to Ur road and ride,change ur Tyre to next point. adjust ur suspension, keep the starting RPM as minimum, and some u may know..

Hai Raju I too stay in chennai only (Thiruninravur). The bike is very good (only for first one year). I’m owning it for past 3 years. I Purchased it from JSP Honda, Ambattur. The after sale service provided by JSP is very bad, we have to book for service before one week(in case of paid service) and he never delivered the bike on the said date and went upto 5 days waiting to get it delivered. For instance i went to JSP service station to adjust head light beam which is focussing on some other side, the fellow told it cannot be changed and tied a rope on the beam with the handle bar to focuss the light properly. Better think twice and do not waste your hard earned money where there is no value for customer service.

Hi Everybody,
I want to buy a bike and would like to use it at least 15 to 20 years.
Options:- 1. HONDA SHINE 125 CC
2. HERO HONDA GLAMOUR 125 CC

Doubts in my mind: –
HONDA SHINE: -
1. Vibrate if rides at 50 km and over.
2. Maintenance Cost starting from 2 year down the line may be go up.
3. Availability and costly spare parts.
4. Milage
HERO HONDA
1. I am much relying on HONDA technology, so recent break up of HERO HONDA would mean HONDA does not provide their technology to HERO, so the bike which will produce post break up may be not as good as before in terms of technology or quality.
2. Milage

KINDLY SUGGEST ME WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN ABOVE OPTIONS,
N.B. :- I WOULD LIKE TO USE THIS BIKE NOT LESS THAN 15 TO 20 YEARS.
Regards

Hi friends
I am using Honda shine from last one year. I have found few things while riding this bike. This bike looking good but the thing is that its average mileage is 52kmpl. If you ride more than 60km/hr this bike is vibrating (shivering). This bike is skidding, If you apply sudden breaks (60km/hr speed). while drizzling, even for 50km/hr speed also, this bike is skidding. This bike have the self start but if you start in the morning it will not work most of the time.

Hello friends. I’m a proud owner of Honda Shine (self, disc). I bought it 3 months back & already drive 6000km. When I was planing to buy a bike, milage & comfort was the main factor coz I have to drive 100-120km everyday. Now I’m very happy with my choice. The seating position of this bike is very comfortable. I never felt tiredness riding this bike, though once I covered near about 200km in a single run, it was very comfortable.
Some fools said, its milage is very bad. But friends remember one thing, milage always depends on two major factors. First, your raiding habit & maintanence of bike. Always try to ride this bike in a constant speed of 45-50km/h & visit your mechanic once a month. You will definetely get more than 70kmpl as I get.

HH Glamour is equal to Super splendor. Glamour will give you 50kmpl with no vibrations. Shine has vibrations, engine is harsh at 70kmph i won’t recommend to anyone. Gladiator is very fast and a preformer but it has low torque compared to glamour and shine. Gladiator will give you 45-50kmpl. Shine is very good for city driving, if you want to take highways go for gladiator, glamour is good for both highway and city traffic but the performance is less then shine and gladiator. You pick your choice. If i were you i would go for Gladiator or Unicorn/ suzuki Gs150.

Honda Shire is a good bike for city riders. Worst part is service centre, who charge exorbitantly, giving vague reasons. Even if you are on free service period, show room like VJ Honda at Ulhasnagar charge you not less than 500 to 1000 minimum for your each free service visit.

Hi, i would like to share my views about HONDA Shine.., The bike is extremly good for the office workers as well as to others who do not believe on the speed as well, But the prime issue is with the gear, it is having four gear so it seems to feel to have five gears to it, because of this the bike gets starts vibrate at the speed of 60-65 but no matter how u ride this at the same speed, in the monson the engine doesn’t make any noise during movement. So i suggest please buy this bike who doesn’t believe on the speed and who really love to be have formal stylish bike.

This is an excellent bike. I have achieved a mileage of 69-plus twice and it gives me a mileage of 65+ consistently, that too in Hyderabad, which is infamous for its haphazard traffic flow.

The above comments prove that no bike in India are flawless, every bike are prone to problems whether it is japanese or indian. I am a bajaj user. My 8 years old bajaj 100 still run like a gun, it can reach 85kmph and gives mileage above 65. I got its clutchplates changed after 6yrs. People dont take care of their bike and blame the manufacturer. People dont know how to maintain their bike Most of the indian change engine oil only when they feel the some problem in the engine.

i love dis bike. itz jst awsm. price is also suitable for every one. giving 124.7 cc with a price arround Rs.55000 is just a thing to be proud of dis bike.
the one n nly thing i love the most in honda shine is its pickup. i am also satisfied wid its mileage.
secondly, the sound of shine is so so soft while it gets a self start , dat take my heart away .
I JUST LOVE THIS BIKE FROM EACH AND EVERY WAY AS WELL AS FROM ALL THE DIRECTION..

SO a great thnx to honda for dis wonderfull bike .

honda shine is a very good bike in 125cc series bikes. it has ok looks, good mileage (55 on long & 50 for short dist.). but it has great acceleration. engine’s sound is different from regular bikes.
it has one fault vibrations starts above 60 kmph.
otherwise great balance, not suitable for weight or for a student.
this bike is great for steady bikers like your dad.
it gives a good mileage even when you drive rashly. (on my bike 35-40kmpl)

Honda shine is goodvehicle, but there is big problem with chain , for very 100 to 200 km it gives a sound as if the vehicle is not serviced for long years.
Out of 100 vehicles 95 of vehicles having similar probs. I dont know why the honda company is not introducing a good chain pack which the sales are also be very high.
