The CBS variants are priced at a premium of Rs. 559/-

Honda’s CB Shine series has been one of the brand’s most successful motorcycles in India which has garnered a customer base of over 70 lakh in the country. Both motorcycles, i.e. CB Shine and CB Shine SP are available in the market as drum brake and disc brake variants with the disc brake variant already offering the option of having CBS (Combined Braking System).

Honda is now making the feature available for the drum brake variant too. CBS is Honda’s version of linked brakes – a safety feature that applies both the front and rear brakes when the brake lever is pressed.

Both the CB Shine and CB Shine SP are powered by a 124.73cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 10.1 BHP at 7500 RPM and peak torque of 10.3 Nm at 5500 RPM. The basic difference between the two is their transmission. The CB Shine is equipped with a 4-speed gearbox, while the Shine SP gets a 5-speed unit.

The Honda CB Shine drum brake version is priced at Rs. 57,779/- and the new CBS-equipped version comes with a price tag of Rs. 58,338/-. The CB Shine SP costs Rs. 63,539/- with its CBS variant costing Rs. 64,098/-. Honda will discontinue the non-CBS variants in the near future since all bikes below or equal to 125cc are required to be fitted with CBS before April 1, 2019.
