Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India on Thursday has launched it's first BS-VI compliant 125cc motorcycle, the CB Shine SP125 at a starting price of Rs 72,200 (ex-showroom). Honda is also offering a special 6-years warranty package with this motorcycle.
Available in four different colour options, the motorcycle is a part of the company's quiet revolution portfolio and is equipped with silent ACG starter and ESP technology just like the Activa 125 scooter. Honda claims the motorcycle is the first in its segment to receive integrated headlamp beam and passing switch.
The 125cc commuter comes with a range of changes compared to the outgoing model, which include a new frame, all-LED headlamp, class-leading fully digital instrument cluster with Fi indicator, claims HMSI.
The system uses 8 onboard sensors to constantly inject optimum fuel and air mixture which aids consistent power output, high fuel efficiency and fewer emissions.
"The company has started mass production of SP125 and will be out by November end," said YS Guleria, Senior VP- sales and marketing, HMSI on the sidelines of the SP125 launch here.
Honda has filed 19 patent applications for this BS-VI compliant CB Shine SP125 motorcycle. It comes with bigger proportions, updated design and fuel-injection system as well. Apart from the Bajaj Pulsar 125, this is the only motorcycle in its segment with a 5-speed transmission.
The four-stroke, SI engine is capable of churning out 10.87 PS of peak power at 7,500 rpm and 10.9 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm, claims HMSI. The motorcycle is available in two variants, front disc brake and all drum units. Honda claims with the eSP technology, the engine offers 16 per cent improved mileage.

Ltd. said, “We are overwhelmed with the love India has given to country’s first BS-VI 2Wheeler – Activa 125 BSVI.
