Honda states 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.

One of the reasons for Shine shining could be because of the periodic updates it has received. By 2018, every second 125cc motorcycle sold was a Shine.

The latest Shine gets 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. "Over the years, Shine has redefined the 125cc segment-leading customers’ expectations with the continuous product & feature enhancement. At Honda, we remain committed to delight our customers with the Joy of riding," said Atsushi Ogata, Managing Director, President and CEO at HMSI.
