Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has now introduced the 2017 CB Shine SP in the country with BS IV compliance, priced at Rs 60,914 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The new Honda CB Shine SP comes with refreshed styling for the new year along with the auto headlamp on (AHO) feature. The 125 cc commuter motorcycle is the fifth offering from HMSI's stable to meet the BS IV norms. The new Honda CB Shine SP is powered by the same engine as the one that does duty on the exiting model. The 124.7cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine with Advanced Honda Eco Technology (HET) offers a maximum power output of 10.16bhp along with 10.30Nm of peak torque. Honda CB Shine SP's mileage is rated at 65Km/l.
The other update on the 2017 Honda CB Shine SP is the new HET tyre on the motorcycle. The new HET tyre has been developed and patented by Honda and is intended to improve the overall efficiency of the bike. The company says that the special tyre is built with a new compound that reduces energy loss while maintaining optimum grip. The HET tyre reduces rolling resistance by 15-20 per cent, which will help improve emissions and fuel efficiency. Honda has received the patent in three countries for the new tyres and has applied for in India.
