Honda Shine is one of the most popular bikes in India. Shine enjoys a commanding market share in its segment. Now, the bike as achieved another feat. Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India on Wednesday informed that its Shine 125cc motorcycle has hit the milestone of 90 lakh in sales since its first launch back in 2006.
The two-wheeler manufactures said that Shine has gone from strength to strength over the past several decades. In two years since its first launch, it became the best-selling 125cc motorcycle and found its first 10 lakh customers in 54 months. By 2013, every third 125cc motorcycle sold in the country was a Shine which helped it hit the 30 lakh in sales milestone by 2014. The main reason behind the positive outcome could be because of the periodic updates it has received.
Talking about the latest shine, it comes with a 125cc PGM-FI HET engine boosted by Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) and meets BS 6 emission norms. Quite obviously then, Honda is elated with its continuing success in the market. It is currently priced from ₹69,415 (ex-showroom, Delhi). It competes in the tightly packed 125 cc segment and takes aim at segment rivals such as the Bajaj Discover 125, Hero Glamour i3s, and Bajaj Pulsar 125.
