Honda has silently introduced 4 new colours on the 2015 CB Shine that was updated earlier this year with updated styling at an event in February this year.
The best selling 125cc motorcycle in the world, Honda India has updated the CB Shine with four new metallic colour options on the palette which include the Imperial red, Geny gray, Maple brown and black. The new colours are offered on the revised CB Shine that was introduced at a company event in February this year in addition to the updated Dream Yuga series, Dio scooter and the Activa 3G. Our reader Julian Bennet spotted the new CB Shine at the dealership and has sent in images.
The 2015 Honda CB Shine has been updated with a revised fuel tank, side panels, exhaust cover, mudguards, tweaked alloy wheels and also gets a re-arranged instrument cluster for a new look. The body graphics have also been updated on the commuter motorcycle and the bike now sports a gloss black visor that looks different. In terms of powertrain, the CB Shine continues to draw power from the same 124.7cc single-cylinder engine that is tuned to produce 10.54 BHP at 7500 RPM and 11 Nm of torque at 5500 RPM, paired to a 4-speed gearbox.
Telescopic front forks and spring loaded hydraulic shocks at the rear perform suspension duties on the 2015 Honda CB Shine while braking performance comes from the 130 mm front and rear drum brakes. There is also a 240 mm front disc brake available as an option. Honda India sold 8.27 lakh units of the CB Shine in the country last fiscal with a year-on-year growth of 13 percent and was the automaker’s second most sold product in the country after the Activa.
