    I recently purchased HH Super splendor 125cc. But its not very good. Its popularty has declined. Go for BAJAJ DISCOVER. Its reliable, little old model. Good look.

    SHINE is very new. wait for feedback from ur friends or who has experienced new bike. I heard TVS will launch 125 cc bike with over 100 km/ltr mileage within 2 months. better to wait till new year and then purchase. GOOD LUCK.

    My friend is using HH Glamour. Your remark about this bike is 100% true. The gears are somewhat tight. But it is in the begining only. It is the best bike in 125cc segment. Bajaj Discover gives 55 kmpl mileage and it is low maintenance bike. You can go for this too. But if you are looking about re-sale value and reliability, go for HH Glamour only. HH is having number one position here. So, its always better to be with the leader.

    Honda Shine is not that preferable compared to the present market. It may be doing good but still we have to wait for the company to launch many models and should get an image that it is also a competitive in the industry.

    So, think for Glamour. Goodluck

    good to see that you have a clear picture in your mind before buying the bike..

    well i recommend the honda shine..

    positives - better engine and mileage together with good handling

    negatives - bad service centers and lack of technical know how by the local mechanics..

    but if u want to have service at your doorstep, then Hero Honda is good enuf.... however.. the galmour isnt that great after 5000 kms run... honda shine wil literally shine in this category ... has a really "gooood" engine...

    discover is not bad.. but since u want mileage, its rest assured that discover wot give u that much mileage..

    so i can safely suggest u to go for honda shine and be tension free for years.. ;)

    The discover 125 is a good bike. If you don't trust it, then go for the glamour. The new 125 cc bike from TVS is worth a look.
