REVIEW I would like to purchase Honda shine but i read the feedback of customers there 2 major problem found 1st is 4th gear shifting problem and another one is speed not go beyond 40/kmph if u there is sound and vibrating problem. So pls suggest me i can purchase or not.

POSTED ON : Monday, September 13, 2010 at 09:05:16
REVIEW Yes..I too agree with the 4th gear shifting problem.  I bought it around two months back.  I have a severe problem with 4th gear with upshifting.  Also, vibration starts if we go beyond 50 kmph.  The bike is smooth and we feel comfortable with driving.  But, those two main problems should be resolved from this.  That is why I still say Hero Honda is Hero.  We can get such reliable and quality engines from any other bike manufacturers.  Readers, please go for Hero Honda.

REVIEWI own 2006 model Honda Shine, the best bike i have ever used.; Only thing is; it needs 5th gear to be added ! Mileage is 65-75kms/ltr in green zone drive. but it depends on fuel pumps, service centers, driving conditions, etc. however it should give 50 kms inside the city. I have driven 23,000 kms including 3,000 kms long drive to Bangalore , Kodaikanal & Cochin; its simply superb with no noise, no vibration upto 100 kms/hr+ speed. Zap the road & Bend it upto 45 degrees, it moves smooth. No problem @ all....!

REVIEW Hi all in Honda Shine it requires 5 Gears, but they manufactured it with only 4 gears thats the reason it is not going beyond 55 or 60 KM speed. It is a failure bike. Don't go for it.

REVIEW All those who are planing to buy Honda Shine should think twice. This bike is intended to drive in city only where speed is not more than 40 Km/hr. On driving highway this bike is definitely be a very bad choice. There is a manufacturing defect which gives high noise and vibrations when driving this bike at speed more than 40 Km/hr. It will be better to drive a Cycle rather than Honda Shine.

I have purchased a Honda shine.
I am facing the problem Mobil (Oil)leakage from the silencer and when I have given the complaint in the servicing center, they have informed us, Give complaint to the Head Office. I have taken the bike from Honda Showroom Bhibaneswar, Saheed Nagar. The Servicing is not at all good.
And even though the customer are giving complaint they are not bother about this. Then What is the need of taking Honda.

REVIEW : Considering overall features, it is good. But I find the bike starts vibrating when it reached 60. i didnt expect this to happen in 125cc bike that too at this speed. I have used 100cc bike before and it didnt vibrate at thsi speed. may be Honda can look in to this problem. As the vibration is high, I could not see shaking image when i look in rear view mirror.

Engine noise is very high as speed Increases. Honda motor look into the matter of servicing point at each location. As dealer damaging the Name of Honda.

REVIEW : i bought the Honda shine bike on 10/06/2006.its a good bike. i have clocked around 23000kms and the overall average i got was 61.84kms.but a reputed company like Honda has very poor servicing standards. i have noticed that the dealers are more interested in sales number, then in servicing. i got such a good mileage only because i personally maintained my bike. i hope the Honda company maintains the same standard as it maintains the world over. a road side mechanic is far better then a mechanic in your garage. i had advised many people to buy a Honda shine but because of your servicing standards i am advising none now.

REVIEW : hi guys, great to hear about all the comments. I had purchased the bike in 2006 just after 10 days it was launched. I was really very happy to own a honda shine, because i was the 2nd person to purchase this bike in the city. i had travelled with my shine for as long as 460 km's in 12 hrs trip. it's a very cool and comfortable bike on the n.h and good state highways. i got the said 65 km's after the 2nd free service and on n.h it was giving above 73 km's per ltr. the great thing in the bike i like is taht when it runs for more than 1/2 an hour at a stretch the engine give's much more good performance. on my trip i had no back aches or fatigues of any kind. Though i stopped the vehile after every 1 1/2 hrs for fiveor ten minutes, but i never switched off the engine. the engine heat was also under control.

But as said the chain was to tightened after every 1500 km's, the engine vibrations were also high after reaching 60 k.m's and above. The other [problem was the cdi unit. I had to change my cdi unit three times, but it was done free of cost, as it was under the warrenty period. The third one i had to pay rs.900/- something for replacing it, after warranty period. the reason the service personals told was that, it was the manufacturing problem of the company which supplied the digital cdi. But after i purchased it it was ok. Now after three years, i had to only clear the engine valve as a major service. This is really a very good bike to own for all.

But the bike when compared to Bajaj xcd125 and discover 135 cc, seems to be a bit delicate and the looks seems to be a too formal one. A little bit of sporty look can add wonders to it like the icing on a well made cake. All in all its a really good dream machine 2 drive with..

REVIEW : I have been using Honda's Shine. Following are a few of my experiences with the bike. I have the early model of Shine which was the release model in India.Positives: 1) I could achieve 0 to 100 km/h in approximately 400 mts.
2) Milage wise I got the maximum milage of 73 kl/lt for which my bike got the 3rd best economy bike award from Honda.
3) I was able to break the Shine in from approx 100 km/h to 0 km/h in just over 3 sec.
4) I went on a long ride of 130 kms. It was a very pleasent ride and very comfortable one. I was able to complete the up and down journey if approx 270 kms in one day on this bike with no side affects.
5) To your surprise guys, I did race the Shine with the famous Bajaj Pulsar 150cc Dts-i. We conducted this race on NH 6 on a streatch of 10 kms. Believe me there were time when Shine overtook the Pulsar and was speeding equally good as pulsar.
While riding the bike at 100 km/h and above the vibration levels are high and the sound of the engine as well. So i strongly feel that a 5th gear is needed to keep these two things low.I strongly believe that SHINE in the 125 cc class surpasses and give the performance of 150cc class bike. I believe no other 125 cc bike would be able to do that. There is something strange about this bike. Its performance is very high to its class.

It  gives me an average of 39 to 40 km per liter of petrol,down from the highest average of 52  I got after the 1st service. The only problem is with the chain that loosens in 40 to 50 days.. This is my first bike.. the engine make much noise when speed more than 40 km/hr. No Proper service from Honda Service center .It is a good bike while riding the will be opened it produce some different sound.. Even that is bad!Its engine gets overheated  easily. I have been mentioning this to the servicing agency every time I give it for service,But of no avail.  I request whoever the recipient authority to  service  properly from Honda Service center after riding motorcycle by a  service technician .I therefore request whoever the recipient authority of this review, to initiate immediate necessary action .

First thing in the morning they exhaust of answering any queries. All the good design of honda shine is of no use when there is no proper service to the bike.

REVIEW : Gr8..comments ever i have seen in nay segment. I have taken shine after reading these previews of last 7 to 8 months, most of the comments are experienced yet in view of +points and negative points.. but as far milage is concerned if u run the bike in green zone i assure that u will get milage around 65 km/hr but as such u cross the green zone subsequent milage drops down. so its thumb rule of automobiles. But as far as performance wise i am expecting good service from the service station.

REVIEW : I reserved a new Honda Shine (Full option - disk break self alloy) form Marikar Motors, Trivandrum.. When we approach for the price details both marikar and evm honda tells that the amount is Rs. 54687/- for on road. In the Hondas website the price for trivandrum city is shown as 53,689/- on road (Including road tax reg fees and insurance> I complainted in hondas website. they called me the next day and apologised..The dealers also apologized and made their willingness to reduce the price.even though the total amount i paid is now 54,197/- and an NSC cost 100rs(Refundable after 6 years) in post office. All the two wheelers dealers in trivandrum city are showing this cheating to every body. So beware and do a careful purchase.

REVIEW : I purchased a Honda Shine Motorcycle on 19.10.2007 from M/s EVM Motors Neeramankara. Trivandrum. Therafter it is being serviced by M/s Marikar Motors Trivandrum. Its 3rd free service was done on 22 march 2008.The vehicle has done 2588 kms till date. But I am going through a terrible time with the machine. Its performance is miserable. It  gives me an average of 39 to 40 km per liter of petrol,down from the highest average of 52 I got after the 1st service. Even that is bad!Its engine gets overheated  easily. I have been mentioning this to the servicing agency every time I give it for service,But of no avail. I continue to suffer as they seems to be no improvement in the performance of the bike!Even the sarvice seems not to care about my complaint.I therefore need an IMMEDIATE solution to it, failing which I intend to seek other means to redress my grievance. My deatils are: Honda Shine Regd No. KL01 AR 7516. Frame No.ME4JC36-6J78043749. Engine No.JC36E-9101086. Selling dealer! code-KL090001. date of purchase-19.10.2007. I therefore request whoever the recipient authority of this review, to initiate immediate necessary action Thanking you
