Honda replaced the Shine SP with the new SP125 in November last year. At the time, the Japanese bike maker launched it at Rs 72,900 for the drum brake option and Rs 77,100 for the disc brake variant. Less than six months since its launch, Honda has increased the price of the SP125 by Rs 552. The standard variant now costs Rs 73,452, while the disc brake trim is priced at Rs 77,652.
Meanwhile, Yamaha too has increased the prices of the Fascino 125 scooter. The tuning fork brand brought in the updated BS-VI iteration of the scooter in December 2019. The base trim of the Fascino now carries a sticker price of Rs 67,230 – an increase of Rs 800 over the introductory price. The dual-tone variants of the Fascino are now priced at Rs 68,230. Yamaha also continues to offer the Fascino with a disc brake option (in single-tone and dual-tone options) and they are priced at Rs 69,730 and Rs 70,730. In comparison, the Suzuki Access ranges from Rs 67,100 for the drum brake trim and Rs 71,700 for the top-of-the-line Special Edition with the disc option. All prices ex-showroom Delhi.
Both the aforementioned bikes are BS-VI compliant. In fact, with the last day for sale of BS-IV vehicles behind us, almost all the two-wheeler manufacturers have made the shift to the cleaner emission norm. That being said, while some manufacturers have used this opportunity to right-size their product portfolio and discontinue a few models, some others are still to bring in updated BS-VI products.
