Out of nowhere, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India has launched the Shine Celebration Edition for a price tag starting from Rs. 78,878/- (ex-showroom, New Delhi). It holds a premium of Rs. 1500/- over the respective regular variant.
The new Celebration Edition brings a fresh look with its Golden theme that includes Golden stripes, Golden wing mark emblem, Celebration Edition logo on the tank top, etc.
The bike also gets a new Saddle Brown seat, Matte Axis Grey Metallic muffler cover, Golden touches on side covers, and a Golden garnish at the front. There are 2 colours on offer – Matte Sangria Red Metallic and Matte Steel Black Metallic.
The new special edition is available in both front drum and disc brake variants like the existing model. Honda Shine is currently the country’s third largest selling 2-wheeler selling more than a lakh units every month.
In June, 2022, Honda sold a humongous 1,25,947 units of the Shine and SP125 combined with year-on-year growth of 75 percent.
