New Shine SP Launched at Rs 59900 – Honda’s 15th Product of the Year

So, here it is, Honda’s 15th product of the year – Shine SP launched today in Delhi! It is a 125 cc motorcycle which will sell alongside the regular Shine. Don’t worry, the 14th product – the Hornet 160R will also be launched, most probably next month. So Honda fulfils the promise of launching 15 products within this year, however, only a handful out of them make sense and are interesting – rest all are very minor sticker additions to the existing bikes.

This means Honda is charging about Rs 4000 to Rs 5000 for essentially an added gear on the ex-showroom price! We are not sure if that is justifiable but that is Honda’s way of expanding a segment…
