Honda has introduced the CBS on the drum brake variants of CB Shine and Shine SP for INR 60,013 and INR 65,269 respectively. The prices mentioned here are ex-showroom. The price for the addition varies largely when considering different motorcycle and variant combination.

For Honda CB Shine, the INR 559 of price hike was seen on the CBS-equipped variant while the same feature on the disc brake equipped model is INR 2,906. On the other hand, Honda CB Shine SP is available with drum brake and CBS combination for a price jump of INR 559. The disc brake variant is seen with a price hike of INR 1,991. This shows that Honda is clearly keeping a large number of profits from the higher selling disc brake variants. The technology is not that expensive as seen from the top-spec models.

The addition of basic safety feature has taken the price to an unbelievable point for a 125cc motorcycle from Honda. In fact, the price tag of INR 64,998 for the Pulsar 150 Neon feels highly justified when considering that disc brake variant of CB Shine costs INR 62,998. Also, the CB Shine SP is totally overpriced with INR 68,015 as the price tag of the top-spec model. The 125cc engine is good for 10.16 BHP and 10.30 Nm on both the bikes, with CB Shine SP featuring 5-speed gearbox and better styling. The heaviest variant among all others weighs 123 kg while both the models are available with a fuel tank capacity of 10.5-litres.

Honda CB Shine Specs

  • Displacement – 124.7 cc
  • Maximum Power – 10.16 Bhp @ 7500 rpm

Yamaha Fazer 25 ABS vs Honda CBR250R ABS (Quick Comparison): Yamaha Fazer 25 ABS is now available in India for a price that can put any other faired motorcycle to shame. The quarter-litre motorcycles are now limited in number as most brands have moved to the 300cc segment to extract more power with a similar amount of weight.

Honda CBR250R ABS is the direct rival to the faired Yamaha motorcycle, with both getting dual-channel unit for the most reliable braking experience. Honda offers a liquid cooled engine with more emphasis on peak power while Yamaha uses an affordable setup with air+oil cooling and emphasis on healthy torque. Both the models are available with single LED headlight design.

That amount can help anyone buy a scooter for city-specific purposes. Here is a quick specification-focused comparison between Honda CBR250R and Yamaha Fazer 25.

Honda Navi is a unique mixture of motorcycle and scooter dynamics for the Indian market. It actually belongs to the monkey bike category but by sharing the frame with Honda Activa, Navi lost the right charm of that category. Honda designed and developed the same in India but due to cost restricted approach, they could not get the right amount of motorcycle-feel into the Navi. Still, it sold more than 50,000 units in the first year and that figure was actually double the amount estimated by the company. The celebration lasted for a short period as the sales chart has an all-new story.

The shocking news for the Navi is that it registered 0 units in the month of December 2018. It seems like Navi may soon be out of production as the brand following has shifted more towards the Cliq scooter in the affordable section. The component sharing between Honda scooters helps the Navi achieve 8 HP at 7000 rpm and 9 Nm at 5500 rpm from the refined 109.19 cc motor. While all other monkey bikes are actually using the manual gearbox for added fun, Honda Navi comes with the automatic gearbox from Activa itself.

Honda launched an updated Navi with new shades and brought a price hike to justify the rising cost of production. It is currently priced at INR 45,314 and loading it with accessories may take the price near to the Activa 5G, concluded as another reason for that drastic drop in sales. Honda Navi can be fitted with a wide range of accessories and the storage box is the most good looking addition to the package. It makes the Navi feel filled at all times. The current generation Navi can be bought in Patriot Red, Shasta White, Black, Ladakh Brown, Ranger Green and Sparky Orange shade.

KTM 250 Duke vs Honda CBR250R (Quick Comparison): KTM 250 Duke and Honda CBR250R fall in two segments with their body type classification.

Not just that, KTM 250 Duke is seen here rivalling the most reliable motorcycle of its class. The CBR250R is known for stress-free ownership experience and has proven itself by going countless kilometres for several Indian riders.

As expected, Honda has discontinued the CBR650F in India to make way for the all-new 2019 CBR650R. The new model is expected to launch in the Indian market in the coming weeks. Honda’s middleweight sports tourer CBR650F was powered by a 648.72 cc, four-cylinder engine producing 85.28 BHP of maximum power and 60.5 Nm of torque. The engine was mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The sports bike was equipped with LED headlights, 2-Channel ABS, and more safety as well as convenience-enhancing features. Thanks to Showa 41 mm dual bending front forks and 7-step adjustable monoshock, the suspension duties on CBR650F were in capable hands for almost all types of Indian roads.

2019 Honda CBR650R was recently unveiled at EICMA 2018. The R moniker brings more power, better acceleration and reduction in weight with the update. The overall difference is 8% for power-to-weight ratio and 5% in total peak output in terms of power. Those in India who were not feeling great with the single headlight design of the CBR650F will love to have this dual headlight design, having straight resemblance with none other than CBR1000RR.

Aprilia GPR 150 vs Honda CBR150R (Quick Comparison): Aprilia GPR 150 and Honda CBR150R are two impressive lightweight racers that the Indian market can get in 2019. The former was recently spied at a dealer event, hinting that Aprilia is expecting to enter the popular motorcycle segment as early as possible.

The motorcycle is different in comparison to the model (RS 150) seen at Auto Expo 2018, sharing every possible element with their China-based model. Even the name GPR 150 is seen on the Chinese variant. Honda CBR150R is yet to make an official entry into India, either through a test mule or a model that can be showcased to the dealers.

The performance values of both the bikes are highly comparable, with CBR getting benefits of its lightweight body while GPR 150 bringing higher overall power output. The tyre size, rear brake size, and 2-channel ABS stay same on both the models. The torque output is higher on CBR150R. Here is a quick comparison list for both the bikes.
