Honda Launches Shine 100 in India with Gasoline Compatibility
The new Shine 100 is E20 gasoline compatible and OBD-2 compliant (petrol with 20 percent ethanol blend).
The 100 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled Honda Shine 100 engine is brand new. In order to increase fuel economy, it also receives fuel injection and eSP. With an automatic choke arrangement, the fuel pump is mounted outside the gasoline tank. At 7,500 rpm, it generates 7.5 horsepower, and at 6,000 rpm, 8.05 Nm.
A brand-new diamond frame that was created just for the Shine 100 is nestled beneath this new engine. With a compact 1,245mm wheelbase, a reachable 786mm seat height, and 168mm of ground clearance, the Shine 100 should be an easy bike to ride while yet being able to handle our rough roads.
Over one-third of all two-wheeler sales in the nation are in the basic 100cc bike sector, thus the new Shine 100 will be a key product for the Japanese company in India. With the new Shine 100, Honda hopes to expand its current 3.5 percent market share in rural areas.
The new Shine 100 is presently taking reservations, and production is scheduled to start the following month. The first deliveries are expected to start in May 2023.
At an initial price of Rs 64,900, this new bike will now be the most cheap Honda bike in India (Ex-Showroom, Mumbai).
