Honda 2Wheelers has sent a “Block Your Date” invitation to the media fraternity for an unveiling of a new product. The event is scheduled to happen on 14th November, 2019 in Delhi. However, the Japanese bikemaker hasn’t yet revealed the name and details of the new model.
The company has already rolled out its first BS6-compliant product – Honda Activa 125. This time around, Honda might introduce the BS6 Honda CB Shine SP. A few days back, a leaked document revealed dimensions and engine details of the bike.
According to the leaked scan, the BS6 Honda CB Shine SP 125 will be slightly more powerful. It will come with the same 124.73cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine meeting the BS6 emission norms that will be enforced from 1st April, 2020. Paired to 5-speed gearbox, it will deliver power worth 10.88bhp instead of 10.31bhp.
The BS6-ready engine of the Honda CB Shine SP 125 will also feature EFI (electronic fuel injection) system instead of the carburettor technology. The bike will also get On-Board Diagnostics I (OBD-I) that will provide access to the status of the vehicle’s several subsystems.
The BS6 Honda CB Shine SP 125 will also witness minor dimensional changes. The bike’s BS6-compliant version will be 13mm longer, 23mm wider and 18mm taller, measuring 2020mm in length, 785mm in width and 1130mm in height. Its wheelbase will also be stretched to 1285mm from 1266mm. The kerb weight, however, will be higher than the BS4-compliant version. Read: Honda Activa 6G – 6 Things To Know
