Honda Shine 100 Engine & Mileage:
Powering the Honda Shine 100 is an all-new 99.7cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, OBD2 compliant, PGM-FI motor which produces 5.6 kw of peak power and 8.05 Nm of peak torque. The bike has an external fuel pump placed outside the petrol tank, for ease of maintenance. The engine also has an automatic choke system for smooth start in all weather conditions.

Honda Shine 100 Features:
Now this is a very budget friendly, low cost, commuter segment motorcycle. So nothing fancy here. You get alloy wheels with tubeless tyres, but no disc brakes. No LED lighting either. The twin pod speedometer cluster also has a speedometer & a fuel gauge, but no digital display. The Shine 100 has a long and comfortable 677 mm seat, narrow leg opening angle, 786 mm of seat height, combi-brake system with equalizer, 1245 mm of wheelbase, 168 mm of ground clearance, 1.9 meters of turning radius, side-stand engine cut-off, long stroke suspension for comfort and simple body decals.
