    I own this bike from last 3 weeks. I use it for daily commuting from kandivali to vasai (around 50kms daily). Bike has good mileage and comfort. I had bajaj discover 100cc & suzuki access 125cc prior to this, and comparing with them, comfort is good. Ride quality is also good, vibration is there post 60 kmph. But i am being told that after 1st service, it will improve. Bike has enough power for riding in rough roads even with pillion. Main usb is mileage, i am getting 60kmpl from it. Which is better than my access 125. Look wise, bike doesn't have anything unique. It looks similar to other commuting bikes. The thing i would like honda to change is sales technique. I was told that only 2 bikes are in stock, if it gets sold then you will have to wait for 45 days, but during delivery, i saw many bikes there.

    Very worst vehicle i have ever seen and worst design. I have given many times for running repairs service in authorized dealer and from the time when i bought the vehicle has crankshaft and fork problem. Now the authorized dealer has said that this vehicle is defective and failure model and you have to bear with it. I don't want to mention the name of the dealer and for 2 years i have been servicing the dealer said your vehicle has no problem and the complaint you are saying is fake. Honda sp shine is a failure and defective model and please don't buy it.

    Buying experience is need to wait for bike to received it we must be patiently wait to buy

    Nice bike..Fuel efficient compare to rest 125cc bikes;it gives me approx 60kmpl average.

    Look is also nice.Pick up is good.Only some issue with the service of honda. But i don't think any of two wheeler company gives best service.If have budget @ 70k defiantly go for shine sp..Or you may also go for cb shine as they both have same engine, only change gears, speedometer & style.Overall good bike for daily usage.

    I have done lots of investigation before buying this bike. Not only from internet but also from the users.

    This bike is mainly for those persons whose requirement is style with fuel efficiency. In average its give me 55 kmpl in the city of calcutta. I am 6ft tall & this bike height is perfect for me. With tubeless facility i can now take my bike in night duty also.

    Good things:- 1. Fuel efficiency(55kmpl average)

    2. Seat height is perfect also with ground clearance.

    3. Headlight focus can be adjusted as per requirement.

    4. Engine sound is smooth even in 60-70 speed.

    5. Body of this bike is hard so balance in 70 speed also no problem.

    6. There is no effect of cross wind, when i ride in bridge in the time of monsoon also there is no effect, so its safe in all the season.

    7. Average looks. We cannot compare this with other 200cc or 250cc bike. But looks is good to me.

    8. Seat is comfortable.

    9. Seat adjustment with bike handle is perfect , in my previous bike i have problem for neck & back pain, but in this bike those things are not happens.

    Bad things:-

    I have found one bad thing which is tire is very thin, specially the back one. If company do this improvement then this is the best bike for daily users.

    I bought Honda Shine Sp from Selvam Honda, Vellore in 2016 near Diwali time.
    I don't know some people have commented their experience on this bike similar to that of a car. What I felt is like riding on bullock cart. Suspension is worst. Wherever and whenever I see a medium hollow in the road or street I need to apply brake for juggle free experience. All these happens only when you ride alone. If pillion rider is with you the suspension is working as it should be and all fine.
    Cold start problem is there - how much ever you apply the kicker or choke and go to second gear , the bike gets started and when suddenly you see a turning and you are applying clutch means the bike engine turns off. This happens irrespective of good quality petrol, Good Heat, Good oil.
    The seat of rider is not comfortable at all. Felt like as if seated on a horse in merry go round.
    But the seat of Pillion rider is pretty good.
    The Headlamp of this light is good and ok. I like the passing light technology.
    When you shift the gears correctly according to the respective speed matching rhythm then the gear changes smoothly. I felt a great difference while riding alone and with a pillion.
    Remember whenever you are on halt please use 1st gear for a movement and change the gear to 2nd as fast as you can .
    2nd - fine upto 18km/he
    3rd - fine upto 25 km /HR
    4th - fine upto 35 km /HR
    5th - the rest of speed.
    Please maintain from 40 to 60 for lesser vibration, good control and Economic ride.
    Greater than 60 is the worst ever shivering especially felt under the pant.
    Don't simply judge the small holes or small speed breakers and ride around 30 in this bike because it will make you get hurt on those soft parts where it should not be hurt . I hope you understood. This hurt is also been experienced by pillion rider.
    Make sure you apply only half clutch for turning or keeping the bike engine on during traffic while on gears.. Half clutch in the sense it shouldn't be engaging the clutch to gear box but at the same time the bike engine should be on. If you apply full clutch while turning or reversing back with your legs or trying to keep the engine on halt them surely the bike engine will turn off irrespective of engine heat . I haven't seen any other bike of this condition.
    Make sure you ride the bike on Main and not on reserve. I tried on reserve and full fuel got empty which led me for for a bike walk to petroleum for almost 4 kms.
    The handle bar of this bike is different and need to struggle for taking a free turn unlike other bike or the CB Shine. Infact I struggled to turn during my RTO license test for driving 8.
    Please make sure to service this bike every 1500 km or maximum by 2000.

    Poor quality of parts provided by honda like lock, center stand, side stand & front soccer. Service centers are very horrible. All 4 free services are done from authorized service center. Experience is very poor. Before 1st service, bike was giving mileage of 64 kmpl. Now it is giving mileage of 54 kmpl. They disturbed the carburetor setting without my permission. Very poor experience.
