Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India today launched its most affordable and fuel-efficient mass motorcycle – Shine 100 in India. Shine 100 is developed with as many as 12 patent applications for the enhancement of reliability.
At the heart of Shine 100 ticks an all-new 100cc OBD2 compliant PGM-FI engine, boosted by Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) which optimizes energy output by maximizing efficient combustion and minimizing friction with a smooth eco-friendly engine. This new 100cc engine is lightweight and efficient with claimed class-leading mileage delivering the highest value to customers. An external fuel pump fitted outside the fuel tank reduces the maintenance time as it is easily accessible.
1. Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI): The system uses onboard sensors to constantly inject optimum fuel and air mixture which aids consistent power output, high fuel efficiency & less emissions.
2. Friction Reduction: The piston cooling jet reduces friction & maintains optimum engine temperature. The offset cylinder and use of a rocker roller arm further reduce the frictional loss which not only helps in smooth and better power output but also improves fuel efficiency.
3. The Solenoid Valve acting as an automatic choke system ensures a rich air-fuel mixture and provides the convenience of one time start at any point of time.
The long seat (677mm) provides ample space for the rider and the pillion. Shine 100 has a uniquely designed tank and a narrow leg opening angle, giving the rider an excellent knee grip. The optimum seat height (786mm) allows easy ground touch for average-height Indian riders. The specially developed suspension unit with long stroke should manage any kind of road conditions.
Side Stand with Engine Inhibitor prevents engine start while the side stand is engaged enabling a convenient and carefree ride. Making every ride on the Shine 100 comfortable and convenient is the Combi-Brake System (CBS) with Equalizer.
Light weight durable steel frame contributes to overall lower vehicle weight. It gives a soft steering feel and excellent manoeuvrability. Shine 100 has a claimed small turning radius of 1.9 meters which is class-leading in this segment. Long Wheelbase (1245 mm) and high ground clearance (168mm) make it stable at higher speeds and bad road conditions inspiring rider confidence. The appealing front cowl, all-black alloy wheels, practical aluminium grab rail, bold tail lamp and sleek distinguished muffler compliment the smooth style of the motorcycle. HMSI is also offering a special 6-year warranty package (3 years standard + 3 years optional extended warranty) on Shine 100. Shine 100 will be available in 5 colour options (Black with Red Stripes, Black with Blue Stripes, Black with Green Stripes, Black with Gold Stripes and Black with Grey Stripes). The all-new Shine 100 is priced attractively at Rs. 64,900 (ex-showroom, Maharashtra)
