Nithyanandh K,

As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

The 2014 Honda CB Shine has been introduced with new body graphics and two new color options. The highly successful motorcycle retains its mechanical package.

The Honda CB Shine is the all-time best selling 125 cc bike in India.

The company says that the CB Shine is India’s all-time highest selling 125 cc motorcycle with over 30 lakh units sold since its launch in 2006. The bike also became Honda’s best selling model in FY2014 across the company’s two-wheeler operations worldwide!

The two new color options – Pearl Amazing White and Dual Tone Red & Black – join the existing color palette which includes Black, Geny Grey Metallic and Rebel Red Metallic. The minor update is aimed at keeping the model fresh ahead of the festive season.
