Total Honda Shine sales have crossed the magical 1 crore mark in India. No other 125cc motorcycle has ever achieved this feat…
Honda Two-wheelers launched their 125 cc offering Shine in India in the year 2006. It was the first bike which featured Honda’s Optimax Technology.
The Shine was a great hit among the customers. So much so that it became the most sold 125cc motorcycle within 2 years of its launch in India.
Fast forward to the year 2022, the workhorse has achieved the milestone of selling 1 Crore (10 Million) units in India. This makes it the first and only motorcycle in the 125 cc segment to reach such a milestone.
The dominance of Shine still continues and it commands an over 50% market share in the segment. Needless to say that it holds the top position among the competitors. According to SIAM, Shine has shown an impressive growth of 29% Year-on-Year (YOY).
Speaking on this impressive feat, Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria (Director – Sales & Marketing, HMSI) said –
“We are honoured and thankful for the love and trust received from millions of Shine users. Spanning over one & a half decades, brand Shine has been a true companion for many generations of riders, making it one of the most popular motorcycle brands in the Indian household across all regions”.
He further states –
“It has proudly upheld the true benchmark of reliability & remarkable quality standards in the 125cc segment. We firmly believe that customer loyalty is a result of an amazing product as well as unmatched after sales service. Keeping this in mind, we will continue to serve our customers with excellence.”
