    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.

    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.

    I purchased honda shine in 2013, after a lot of researches based on performance, mileage, cost etc. I used this bike for daily commuting I rode around 87000kms. Pros: very good bike in pickup, road grip, mileage and comfort. I travelled long distances in this bike. Bike will be under your control even if your riding at 90kmph. Cons: initially I was facing issue with chain sprocket so I changed with hero chain sprocket. Main issue is with service simply they charge more amount and include unnecessary services. Whenever you leave your bike for service, its cost will be high compared to other competitor. It was giving mileage average of 50-55 km/l till 50000 km's, after that its mileage dropped to 45-50. If you ride above 80 kmpl then mileage will drop some more.

    1. So i bought my bike from a local unauthorized dealer in my area so that i can get my bike as early as possible(waiting list for the bike is too long). The buying experience is good for me as i got the bike within 3 days of booking. I got some accessories with bikes such as helmet, knee guard and parking cover. Even rto work is done by the dealer only though the number comes after 10 days. But its fine for me as i rarely take bike for long rides.2. As per the riding goes i own this bike from last 4 years and i must tell bike is very smooth to ride upto certain 70km/hr speed after that bike starts to vibrate lot, which is not desirable.3. Looks of bike is very moderate and uncle type. But performance is good after 4 years of usage also bike can pull 3 persons with ease. Even mileage is very good in city traffic i get 45 km/l and on highways, it goes up to 55 km/l. But plastic parts of the bike are not that good especially one under the seat it can easily get damage i have changed that part once. Suspension is also good. Tvs tyres provided by honda is very good.4. Servicing of the bike is not costly one has to spend 800-1000 rs every 4 months for routine servicing. In the case of maintenance i must tell you i have changed nothing except mirrors and fibre under seats in bike, which is actually way good. And again we have to trust honda brand for this.5. Pros : mileage, performance, maintenance, service cost, pickup, decent looking bike, brand trust, parts of bike are robust Cons: vibration from engine bit annoying on highways, bad quality fiber.

    Style, power, reliability, decent fuel economy and comfort. Honda shine is a silent tiger on road although with some serious shortcomings. I have briefly listed the pros and cons for my honda shine bought in march 2010:Pros- it has good pick up and manoeuvrability for navigating through dense and unruly Indian traffic. Also you never feel the load of a pillion rider.- it is designed for a very comfortable posture. Combined with robust shock ups, it ensures you have no back ache or fatigue for about 100 km ride.- refined engine with a pleasant sound.- high reliability and durability - i have run it for over 30000 kms now and it still gives a brand new feel.- low maintenance – servicing at every 3000 km and oil change at every 2000 km will make sure you make no extra expenses on maintenance.- a consistent mileage of about 45kmpl which is decent for this kind of power and pick up.Cons- missing fifth gear – for its power and pick up, the bike should have had a fifth gear to ensure smoothness on highway. It produces high vibration and sound on high speeds.- chain dislocation – the chain surprisingly gets off frequently due to dryness and loosening. Make sure you keep oiling and tightening the chain every 2 weeks.- common spare parts like chain cover, handle covers, front hood, indicators etc. Are not available at service centers especially when your model is over 2 years old. Honda keeps making minor changes in accessories every year and it ignores the old customers. Its like they expect us to buy a new bike every year.- honda has the most unresponsive customer support system. They never respond to e mails.- the service centres are understaffed and under-equipped. It takes a long waiting to get your bike serviced. So if you are ok with a callous service and support from the manufacture, if you can deal with minor technology/design issues and are not high on mileage, honda shine is your best treat on road. It will give you a riding pleasure that no other bike can give. Pros: Power, comfort, handling, reliability. Cons: Chain, gear, service.
