The Shine SP will be powered by the same 124.7 cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine with HET that is doing duty on the current Honda Shine, but it is expected to feature some subtle changes for enhanced performance and mileage. The existing CB Shine packs 10.57 bhp at 7,500 rpm and 10.30 Nm at 5,500 rpm. The 4-speed gearbox is not expected to be altered.
