12 2010, 125 cc Honda Shine gets renamed as 'CB' Shine

Honda gives its 125 cc Shine the 'CB' treatment..!!

Honda has now brought all its motorcycle models in India under the 'CB' tag..!!

Just a couple of days back when the details of the 2010, 150 cc Honda Unicorn appeared on Honda India's website as the 'CB' Unicorn,I had jokingly stated that "What's next..?? 'CB' Shine..??" Well, I couldn't have been more prophetic.

The Honda 2 Wheeler India website has been recently updated with the details of the 2010 'CB' Shine..!!

2010 Honda CB Shine

The changes are largely cosmetic and limited to..

    [1] Black painted engine
    [2] Handle bar end weights
    [3] New design stickers
    [4] New 3D Honda winged logo on tank
    [5] Maintenance free battery
    [6] Viscous paper air filter

On the engine front everything still remains same though.

It is clear that the CB Shine is not a new model or a major upgrade. But by giving the 'CB' tag to the 125 cc Shine, Honda has now brought all its motorcycle models in India under the 'CB' tag.

    [1] 110 cc, CB Twister
    [2] 125 cc, CBF Stunner
    [3] 125 cc, CB Shine
    [4] 150 cc, CB Unicorn and

    the imports..
    [5] CB1000R and
    [6] CBR1000RR - Fireblade

Well how about a "CBR" 250 or maybe a "CBR" 300 next..??

Not "CB250R" or "CB300R".. but a CBR model.

Payeng, I've got a question for you. Since your blog's so known among the motorcycling enthusiasts across the country, can your voice reach the folks at RE?

Payeng said...

@Siddharth, I have never come in contact with any RE official till date.. so won't be able to tell whether my blog is known to them.

Also this blog was inactive for a long time.. so am not sure whether it still enjoy's the kind of viewership it once had.

@Sajal and Gagan..
as per "Biking Urban Legend", the CB on Honda bikes probably mean "City Bike".. but that probably is not true. Maybe its just a code which got attached and went on to become trendy.
