    I will recommend do not buy @ all. Honda cb shine sp. All you will do is make loss nothing else service cost is high every time you go to service center they will make the billing of rs. 1500-2500/-The problem will keep arising as you are running the bike.1st issue : bike engine sound will increase after 200 km. That's make you uncomfortable to ride the bike.2nd issue: back tyres loose the air pressure in 12 hours every time you go to puncher shop they will charge you rs.5/- now calculate the time you will spend to take the air and money after riding 500 km now the comfort riding is gone now. After running few hours air pressure loss its air.3rd issue : chain will make noise after riding 3000 km. Service center will tell you to change the chain after 12000 to 13000 km. 4th issue : you have to change spark plug after 10000 km. Thats ok. Its minor expense.5th issue : after riding 1500 km you have to change the mobile as per service center.6th issue: disc brake service rs.800/- after riding 12800 km.There are many problem which i can not share like this just for the information i have tell you every thing because i owned the bike.Worse decision i have make to purchase the bike........ Look does not matter service maintenance comfort riding all that you have to see while purchase the bike.

    Pros:Its honda and trusted for many years but now with degraded quality.Cons:1. Bike vibrates above 50km/hr speed. If you are thinking for more distance travel > 10km then buy another bike.2. Bike chassis started rusting within a month 3. Speedo meter pointer vibrates between 20 to 40 km/hr range 4. Suspension is not so good to absorb the normal Indian road condition 5. Gear box is having some problem(its with honda only. Confirmed with service center person). gear does not shift properly every time when we start from standing position of bike on traffic signal. Need to push front or pull back for gear fitting.6. Plastic used is of not good quality. Within a month, my bike's side plastic buffer internal lock broke and i was asked for money for same at service center. 7. This bike is not made for more than 50km/hr then i did not understand that why honda has given speedo meter upto 140km/hr( that is joke actually)8. I will suggest to take personal ride for 2 to 3 times for speed you need and then choose your bike as for normal Indian its huge amount to be invested about 80k to 90k inr.9. For three free servicing, oil change is compulsory (560inr*3 times) for full 2 year engine warranty. so consider this amount also while buying bike.Try Indian bikes like bajaj, mahindra.(i got caught by honda shine fame).

    Bike is top in performance and smoothness, never feel uncomfortable during long ride, better pickup. Reaches 40kmph in just 10% throttle, good bike Bad things are,rear tyre is thin, no led drl, lack of front disk brake variant in blue color, horn is cheap sounding, rear axle nuts are damn tight, i bend the nuts but it not moved a little, very worst in case of modification.

    Riding experience is good for average speed runner...But if you want to go beyond 80 kmph then this is not good choice for you...Go for 150cc+ in honda or other brand(i haven't experience of other brand)...Gear changing is not smooth...Facing difficulties in 2nd to 3rd and 3rd to 2nd gear switching...Makes a lot noise while changing....Look wise it is very good....After sales service is also good(depend on showroom in your area) .Overall you can say it is average bike....Better to go for 150cc with some extra cost.
