Honda 2 Wheelers India has officially teased the new Shine 100cc bike ahead of the price announcement in India on March 15. While the initial teaser offered little information, we now have a better idea of its design. The new 100cc motorcycle will be an entry-level commuter under the Shine brand, as suggested by the buzzwords 'Shining Future' and 'Honda ki 100' in the latest teaser. Honda has not officially unveiled the specifications and features of the new 100cc bike, but according to industry reports, the new motorcycle will resemble the currently available Shine. The upcoming bike will reportedly have a good fuel efficiency rating. According to the design sketch, the new bike will be a member of the Shine family, displaying a front-end style similar to the current Honda 125cc Shine.

Just like the existing Shine model, the bikini fairing has a slightly elevated V-section in the centre. Additionally, the teaser demonstrates that the upcoming 100cc commuter will be equipped with alloy wheels, a telescopic fork, and twin shock absorbers. With the long, flat single-piece seat sporting no step in the middle, the bike has a simple design in comparison to the current 125cc Shine version.
Mechanically, the new motorcycle is anticipated to be powered by a new 100cc engine, which could produce 8bhp and 8Nm. It may get a combined brake system and a semi-digital instrument. Further, the automaker could launch the model in multiple versions. Right now, Honda doesn't have a 100cc offering in the market – it only has commuter motorcycles with engines under 110cc. The upcoming bike will be the first to have a 100cc engine.
