If you are a 70km Biker RajYam is your bike!
BTW if you are a Biker why 125???
vibration at 60 and beyond, i feel the engine is so strong at 60kmh, just hasnt the extra cog. open the throttle at 60, it keeps going strong till 90.

keeping the shine below seems sooooo honda cd100. :( which it is def not.

That's what...!!!
I personally advised one of my best friends (and made him purchase one) who is into "Sales" job, to opt for a Honda Shine, because his priorities were clear. Good driveability in City, should be a typical Commuter, start at the first kick/thumb in the morning, do all the 50-75 km running all day long, at night rest in the garage, and the cycle continues...
Typical boring Honda... For the enthusiastic and adventurous biker in him, there's his Ol' smoking Kawa Endura and hence, the shine...

I have used his Shine on numerous occasions too, it seems to have a split persona below and above 60kmph. Below 60kmph, it's Copy Book Commuters delight kinda bike, go 60+ the engine behaves wild. I'd never again take it to 60+ speeds. I just can't help to think why Honda did not revise the gearing when they revamped the Shine.

So, again I'd stick out to Shine for a Commuter, Yam for a biker...

Thank you guys.
The input was very helpful.Can always trust T-Bhp for expert opinions.
It could between Shine, Zues and Star.
To be decided after test drive.

Don't go for the Zeus! You won't even get a resale value of 18-20K if you sell it after just a month.
Star and Shine make more sense!
