After much anticipation, Honda has officially launched the Shine 100, a new 100cc commuter motorcycle in India. The all-new motorcycle, designed to handle traffic all day long, is aimed at commuters in rural and urban markets. The cost of the brand-new Honda Shine 100 is Rs 64,900 (ex-showroom, Maharashtra). The bikemaker has begun taking reservations for the new Shine as of today. Production is scheduled to begin next month, and deliveries will start in May of this year. There are 12 patents associated with the new Honda Shine, many of which are firsts for this market. The three-year standard warranty and three-year optional extended warranty are both included with the Shine 100 from the two-wheeler manufacturer.

Honda Shine 100: Exterior Styling and Colour Options

The CB Shine 125-inspired design has been adapted to the Shine 100. It has a curved headlight, fuel tank, and grab rail-equipped single-piece seat for the convenience of the rider. Like the majority of commuter motorcycles in India, the overall construction is quite basic and thin.

Five colour choices will be offered for the Honda Shine 100-Black with Red Stripes, Black with Blue Stripes, Black with Green Stripes, Black with Gold Stripes, and Black with Grey Stripes.

Honda Shine 100: Mechanical Specifications and Hardware

An entirely new 99.7cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 7.6bhp of maximum power and 8.05Nm of peak torque at 6,000rpm powers the Shine 100. These numbers are very similar to those of Hero's rivals. An entirely new diamond frame created specifically for the Shine 100 houses this new engine. The Shine 100 should be an accessible bike to ride while being able to handle the rough roads thanks to its short 1,245mm wheelbase, accessible 786mm seat height, and 168mm of ground clearance. According to the manufacturer, the Shine 100's engine has been optimised to deliver "higher fuel efficiency" and is OBD-2 and E20 fuel compliant. It also has an auto-choke feature that ensures the bike starts regardless of the outside temperature as well as a fuel pump on the outside of the fuel tank to make repairs simple. The Honda Shine 100 is expected to have a fuel efficiency of 60 km/l, according to HMSI.

Telescopic front forks and dual rear shocks are standard on the Honda Shine 100. Meanwhile, the braking system consists of a front and rear drum unit mounted on alloy wheels with road-biased tyres.

Honda Shine 100: Features

A halogen headlamp with bulb turn indicators is now standard on the new Shine 100. A twin-pod instrument console with a speedometer, odometer, and fuel level readout is included in the list of features. Additionally, Honda has added a side-stand sensor and CBS (Combined Braking System) to it.
