The decently powered engine generates about 10.12 Bhp of power at 7500 Rpm and 10.54 Nm of torque at about 5500 Rpm. Hydraulic suspension for the rear and telescopic fork suspension for the front wheel along with an overall body weight of about 120 kgs makes the bike is easy to ride and take-on the Indian road with ease. Overall the bike sports a decent commuter bike appeal with smooth curves.

At the time of launch, speaking in detail about the new bike Y.S. Guleria, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, HMSI, said, "CB Shine is the largest selling 125cc motorcycle in India. Acknowledging the evolving customer needs, Honda has regularly reinvented the model. Maintaining crisp power with time trusted Honda technology, the new style sheet will further up the style quotient of CB Shine and reaffirm it’s as a true Winners’ Choice.” Earlier this year when the CB Shine earned the title of being India's top selling 125cc motorbike, an official company statement reads, “Since becoming segment leader, Honda's CB Shine leadership over nearest competitor model has consistently grown from 9% in FY'2008-09 to 61% in 2013-14.
