About SP 125

Honda SP 125 is a mileage bike available at a starting price of Rs. 79,371 in India. It is available in 2 variants and 4 colours with top variant price starting from Rs. 83,535. The Honda SP 125 is powered by 124cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 10.72 bhp and a torque of 10.9 Nm. With both front and rear drum brakes, Honda SP 125 comes up with combined braking system of both wheels. This SP 125 bike weighs 117 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 11 liters.

Derived from the existing CB Shine SP sold in the market, the SP 125 is HMSI’s first BS6 compliant motorcycle in the company’s portfolio. The motorcycle continues to follow the same silhouette but with more premium looks and equipment. Honda offers the SP 125 in two variants including drum brake and disc brake at the front.

In terms of design, the motorcycle gets a revised styling that is prominently sculpted with edgier contours. To go with this sporty look, the SP 125 comes with an LED headlamp and tail lamp. It features a fully-digital instrument console complete with an Eco indicator, real-time fuel efficiency, gear position indicator and a service reminder, besides the standard information. It also gets an engine kill switch which is a segment-first feature.

Coming to the engine, the motorcycle is powered by an updated 125cc unit that is now BS6 compliant with electronic fuel injection. The engine now produces 10.5bhp of max power and 10.3Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties continue to be handled by a five-speed gearbox. For the SP 125, Honda has equipped the motorcycle with an ACG starter for smoother engine cranking.

In terms of cycle parts, the SP 125 comes with the same setup as offered on the CB Shine SP. It gets telescopic forks up front and twin spring-loaded shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is handled by drum brakes on the base and a disc-drum setup for the higher variant. Both versions come with CBS as standard. The bike rides on 18-inch rims and 80/100 section tyres at both ends.

Honda offers the SP 125 in four colour options: Striking Green, Imperial Red Metallic, Pearl Siren Blue and Matte Axis Grey Metallic.

Honda SP 125 Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • 125cc engine offers excellent refinement
    • Great fuel efficiency
    • Offers comfortable ride
  • Could be Better

    • Disc brake variant is priced quite high
    • Misses out on some  modern features
    • Conservative styling

BikeWale's Take

The Honda SP 125 is a no non-sense commuter that offers decent performance and good fuel efficiency. The overall comfort is decent too. But the design of the motorcycle is too conservative and the pricing of the bike is quite high which doesn’t make it a value for money motorcycle.

Honda SP 125 Review

We spent some time with the new SP 125 to find out if, despite losing the ‘Shine’ moniker, does the motorcycle still shine in the real world?

Introduction

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

The Honda SP 125 is the successor to the CB Shine SP 125. Interestingly, the Japanese bike maker has not just updated the engine for BS6 compliance with one or two additional features, but rather it has given the motorcycle a substantial makeover. Given the fact that the CB Shine has consistently stayed in the list of the top five highest selling two-wheelers in India, it is an important product for the brand and a comprehensive update was crucial to keep its desirability intact. Having said that, we spent some time with the new SP 125 to find out if, despite losing the ‘Shine’ moniker, does the motorcycle still shine in the real world? 

The Visuals

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

Besides tweaking the engine and elongating the feature list, Honda also went back to the drawing board and tinkered with the design of the motorcycle. And after gawking at the new SP 125 from all angles, we can say it is one handsome-looking motorcycle. From adding more contours around the headlamp section to fitting beefier tank extensions, Honda has successfully made it look sportier. The story continues at the rear as well, with the underseat panels and the tail lamp being sleeker now.

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

The SP 125 is not just aesthetically adorable but the overall built quality along with the fit and finish is also impressive. While the controls on the switchgear exude a solid and upmarket feel, the plastic panels across the bodywork also speak of durability. Except for the plastic inserts between the fuel tank and its extensions, which are slightly flimsy, the overall package appears well put together.

The Package

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

Let’s get the unchanged aspects out of the way first. The new SP 125 is built around the same diamond type chassis as its predecessor. It also retains the telescopic forks, hydraulic shock absorbers, 130mm drum brakes and 240mm front disc brake (which is optional). Now, what’s heavily worked upon is the 124cc, air-cooled motor which now features Honda’s PGM-FI fuel-injection technology along with changes to reduce internal friction. These alterations promise lower emissions, improved mileage and better performance. 

We have been witnessing a drop in performance in new two-wheelers, following the BS6-bound changes in their engine. Surprisingly, at 10.6bhp and 10.9Nm, the new SP 125 produces marginally more power and torque than the outgoing version. 

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

Now, let’s get down to the modern features of the bike, most of which are segment-first. To start with, it gets a fully digital instrument cluster which packs a plethora of information such as real-time mileage, average mileage, distance to empty, gear position, service reminder, two trip meters and the basic data. Then there’s an engine kill switch which also doubles up as an engine starter button. And those radical-looking headlamp and tail lamp boast of LED lights. Most importantly, in line with Honda’s ‘Quiet Revolution’ theme, the new SP 125 gets a silent starter which uses an ACG starter motor to negate the engine cranking noises.

The Ride

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

Thumb the starter and you will be greeted by Honda’s silent start system which works like a charm. The engine fires up with sheer silence, as if Sherlock Holmes was about to set out on a highly secretive mission. The only way you’ll know that it has come to life is by the mild rumbling of the engine underneath. 

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

The light clutch functions with least effort while the gear shifts are also smooth. However, the transmission system gets a tad clunky after riding it for a while, accompanied by occasional false neutrals. As you get going, the SP 125 shows that it is an adequately peppy machine for the city conditions. Although it takes its own sweet time to build up speeds, the motorcycle has enough low-end grunt to take off a signal briskly and overtake the slow-moving vehicles. Also, the relaxed nature of the engine allows you to trundle at speeds of 35kmph, even in the fifth gear. 

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

While we were expecting the new fuel-injected motor to be more refined, surprisingly, it was not the case. The powerplant feels slightly rough at higher revs. It remains stress-free until 65-70kmph, with minor buzz creeping in beyond that. However, the vibes are limited to footpegs and aren’t bothersome. On the highway, the motorcycle can cruise between 70-80kmph without any strain while the top speed lies a little over 100kmph. 

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

Speaking of ergonomics, swinging a leg over the motorcycle and settling into the seat is a no-fuss affair. That’s courtesy of the 790mm seat height, which has been reduced by 10mm now. Add to this the well-padded seat, centre-set footpegs and pulled back handlebar, and the SP 125 comes across as a fairly comfortable motorcycle. We specifically liked the spacious rider’s seat which facilitates easy movement on the saddle. 

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

Another notable aspect is the SP 125’s kerb weight which is as low as 117kg; around 6kgs lesser than the CB Shine SP. Additionally, its compact dimensions, lightweight diamond frame and grippy tyres translate into an impressive agility. Flicking it through traffic is a piece of cake. The suspension setup absorbs most of the bumps, road joints and potholes with ease. However, going slow over the tall bumps would be a wise decision as the rear suspension tends to rebound with a jolt, throwing the rider off the seat. Meanwhile, the brakes are spot-on for a bike of this segment. The combi-braking system works with aplomb by preventing the wheels from locking for the most part. 

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

The SP 125 belongs to a segment where mileage is an important factor. Although the bike comes with an ARAI-claimed efficiency of 70kmpl, the average mileage indicator consistently displayed figures between 55-60kmpl. However, you can try and extract more mileage by consistently following the eco indicator which glows green when ridden in the right gear for any given speed. Nevertheless, we’ll bring you the real-world mileage of the SP 125 in our road test review. 

Conclusion

Honda SP 125  Honda SP 125

Honda has priced  the new SP 125 at Rs 72,900 (drum) and Rs 77,100 (disc) (both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). This is a premium of around Rs 7,000 over the CB Shine SP which the price-sensitive buyers of this segment will find quite significant. However, considering the new BS6-compliant FI engine with improved performance, a host of modern features and fresh styling, the price tag is justified and the SP 125 comes across as an overall attractive package.
