I want to buy a 125 cc bike. I am confused between Bajaj 125M & Honda CB Shine. My friends use Honda Shine but I personally favour Discover. Which one should I buy? Is Discover a worthy bike?
Details about long term maintenance, mileage, design and ride quality.
Starting from the styling part, Bajaj Discover 125M has got a fresh look with its excellent design, paint and the muscular tank. The CB Shine demands a bit of update when it comes to design. Another amazing part of the Discover 125M is its spider web alloy wheels which are again missing in the Honda CB Shine.
The seating and the riding position for both the bikes is comfortable but of course the the Discover 125M has got a longer seat. The seat height for both the bikes is good enough to comfortably accommodate small to medium heighted riders.
CB Shine is behind the Discover when it comes to performance due to its kerb weight of 118 kgs whereas the Discover weighs 117 kgs. With Honda Shine you can reach max to 90 km/hr but with Discover you can easily hit 95 km/hr.
The mileage for the Discover comes out to be 63 km/l while the Shine returns 55-57 km/l on a daily basis.
Both of them offer good ride quality and handling. Discover 125M is unbeatable as it is a fuel-efficient bike that comes with a disc brake as well. So, it can be called as complete value for money bike.
