Know more about Honda sp 125
Derived from the existing CB Shine SP sold in the market, the SP 125 is HMSI’s first BS6 compliant motorcycle in the company’s portfolio. The motorcycle continues to follow the same silhouette but with more premium looks and equipment. Honda offers the SP 125 in two variants including drum brake and disc brake at the front.
In terms of design, the motorcycle gets a revised styling that is prominently sculpted with edgier contours. To go with this sporty look, the SP 125 comes with an LED headlamp and tail lamp. It features a fully-digital instrument console complete with an Eco indicator, real-time fuel efficiency, gear position indicator and a service reminder, besides the standard information. It also gets an engine kill switch which is a segment-first feature.
Coming to the engine, the motorcycle is powered by an updated 125cc unit that is now BS6 compliant with electronic fuel injection. The engine now produces 10.5bhp of max power and 10.3Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties continue to be handled by a five-speed gearbox. For the SP 125, Honda has equipped the motorcycle with an ACG starter for smoother engine cranking.
In terms of cycle parts, the SP 125 comes with the same setup as offered on the CB Shine SP. It gets telescopic forks up front and twin spring-loaded shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is handled by drum brakes on the base and a disc-drum setup for the higher variant. Both versions come with CBS as standard. The bike rides on 18-inch rims and 80/100 section tyres at both ends.
Honda offers the SP 125 in four colour options: Striking Green, Imperial Red Metallic, Pearl Siren Blue and Matte Axis Grey Metallic.
