Premium version of the CB Shine.
What appears to be the cover page of the Honda CB Shine SP's product brochure or service booklet, has been leaked online before the model's formal unveiling. This confirms that the Shine SP will round up the 15 Honda two wheeler launches in the Indian market in 2015, and also that this is the 'mystery bike' teased during the RevFest.
Since the Honda CB Hornet 160R is yet to be launched though it has been unveiled during the Honda RevFest 2015 in early August, the Honda Shine SP which is reported to be launched on November 19 could be the 14th launch by HMSI this year. The Hornet 160R will be the 15th product launch by the company, which is expected to take place in December.
The salient changes that are found in the Honda CB Shine SP compared to the outgoing Honda CB Shine, include a new head lamp design with a large visor on its top, connected side and rear cowls, new 10-spoke alloy wheels, redesigned exhaust can with a chrome accent, red coloured springs for rear suspension, a new tail lamp design and new body graphics.
The engine powering the Honda Shine SP is expected to be the same 125 cc single-cylinder HET motor that is found on the existing Honda Shine, but with tweaks for more performance and fuel economy.
