    It is a one of greatest bike in 125 cc and its riding is very smooth, No back pain, road grip is good and combination of breaking system is well. for riders it is a anti skid bike on road and it's pickup is Excellent. Tubeless tyre's more use full for riders, it design color's are so attractive for everyone and flexible indicators as well .good bike for youth, bike mileage near 60 km / liters.

    It's been nearly 3 years since I purchased the bike. I was confused between Honda shine and tvs centuro at that time but showed confidence in Honda shine. I had bought the bike from dealership near me in pane. Right from start all the agents there helped me a lot in buying process, pre- delivery inspection and all. In all if i want to rate the buying experience out of 5 stars I will give 5 stars. You sit in very comfortable position, so you can do long trips without much tiredness. Clutch is also not on a stiffer side, so it gets easy to do quick gear changes giving you a comfortable ride in city traffic as well. If I want to rate riding experience out of 5 I will give 4 stars. If I speak about looks of the bike, it is quite a stylish looking bike for city commute and the blacked out alloy wheels add more style in the overall look. It's 125cc engine gives a good power in city as well on highway. You will reach 100km/h easily but after that you will feel little vibration and are easily felt. You never feel out power in any situation and accelerates really quickly. The maintenance cost of honda shine is really very low. While it may vary from person to person on it's usage what the maintenance cost will be. But it is on the lower side as compared to other. The servicing can also vary from person to person, dealership to dealership. But I personally service the bike every 3 months and that costs me around INR 800 for oil change, washing, oiling, and other overall servicing. I have been using this bike for nearly 3 years now. While speaking about my long term experience, the bike has constantly delivered mileage of about 60 to 65 per liter which is definitely a good thing. As the user since 3 years, the performance and mileage is almost constant and not changed a lot. Though there is a slight noise in gear shift now but it's not a cause of concern and is negligible. Pros : stylish looking, good mileage, no lack in performance & power, best bike for city commute, comfortable seating position, not much costly, good dealer network. Cons : little engine noise, chain slips most frequently, disc brake little tighter. Overall it's a good package and a best budget buy for middle class people. It provides a complete package required for daily commute.

    Hello folks, i bought this bike keeping daily commute in my mind. However i never excepted this bike to perform so well for all these years, it's been 12 years now & i still enjoy riding this bike.Apart from my daily ride, occasionally i have taken the bike to do some touring as well.It has never disappointed me. Making multiple tours to ooty and nearby places in bangalore. Yes, of course, lighter on the pocket side in terms of bike maintenance.Truly this bike has been like a part of my family. Never disappointed me whether i am with my family or friends. Except for bike puncture on a few occasions never had bike breakdown issues whatsoever. when riding even today, i feel as if i am riding this bike for the very first time. I am in love with honda shine. Thank you, honda, for making this kind of bikes.

    This was my first geared bike after a honda activa. The main point for me was good fuel efficiency, since i was a student with not much money. The visit to the honda showroom was pleasant. Since i had already decided which bike to buy, it was a short visit and i booked the bike on the same day itself. It took me two days to get the bike along with registration plates. Note: mention that you want the imprinted plates, as sticker jobs won't work now. Cops will catch you later and fine you if you don't get imprinted plates.Ownership experience of the shine is 5 stars. I didn't face any issue with the bike till today. Except for the back tyre, which is very slippery. This i got changed after 2 years.Pros:- economy- smooth engine- good pickup- light to handle- easy maintenance- honda service and brand Cons:- tyres are not grippy enough. Would recommend changing.- looks, it is a basic commuter bike nothing else.Overall, i would strongly suggest the shine 125 if you're on a budget and require an economical daily commuter.Hope it helps!
