Honda still has two launches for the year left which include a ‘mystery bike’ which they teased at an event few weeks back and the CB Hornet 160R. We have seen the Hornet and today we will reveal Shine SP which is the ‘mystery bike’ Honda has promised.
So, instead of a direct replacement of Stunner, Honda is bringing a slightly more premium version of the existing Shine, which is already a massive seller in the 125 cc segment for Honda.
However, Honda understand that its sales in the segment are sliding and Shine SP will be an attempt to bring some freshness to the lineup maintaining the utilitarian placement.

Shine SP Changes
The CB 125 Shine SP gets a connected rear cowl and a more flowing body along with new side panels. We have listed all the changes in a following list…
- New 10-spoke alloy wheels
- New tail lamp
- Redesigned exhaust muffler with chrome garnish (seems to borrow inspiration from Livo)
- Red coloured springs in rear suspension
- New graphics
- Bigger visor over re-designed sweptback head lamp
The Shine SP will be powered by the same 124.7 cc but there may be a few tweaks to its performance as well as efficiency. Honda is expected to launch Shine SP within the coming few days at a few thousand rupees over Shine.
