Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) will be introducing the company’s first BS6-compliant motorcycle, the new Honda CB Shine SP. The BS6 regulations will come into effect from April 1, 2020, and Honda has already launched the company’s first BS6-compliant two-wheeler, the new Honda Activa 125 BS6. According to a series of leaked news, the new Honda CB Shine SP will receive an updated 125 cc engine along with an upgraded design. Even the dimensions of the new model will be different from the outgoing CB Shine SP.
As per the specifications, the upcoming Honda CB Shine SP will be sporting a new fuel-injected engine and will house medley of features such as idling start-stop system, as well as an engine inhibitor when the side stand is down. The whirlwind of leaked news also suggests that the BS6 Honda CB Shine SP will make 10.7 bhp at 7,500 rpm from the new 124 cc engine. The outgoing CB Shine SP’s 124 cc engine produces 10.16 bhp at 7,500 rpm, and peak torque of 10.3 Nm at 5,500 rpm.
The new Honda CB Shine SP is coming with two variants, one with front and rear drum brakes with a combined braking system (CBS), and the top-spec model with front disc brake and rear drum brake. The longer, taller and wider wheelbase of the vehicle will include a plethora of new features such as the LED lightning and a new digital instrument panel. The price of the new Honda CB Shine SP is expected to be around 10 percent more than the current model, so in all probability it will be priced around ₹ 70,000 (ex-showroom Delhi) for the drum brake version, while the disc brake variant is expected to be priced at around ₹ 77,000 (ex-showroom Delhi).
