All-new 100cc Engine
At the heart of Shine 100 ticks an all-new 100cc OBD2 compliant PGM-FI engine, boosted by Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) which optimizes energy output by maximizing efficient combustion and minimizing friction with a smooth eco-friendly engine. This new 100cc engine is lightweight and efficient with the finest innovation producing optimum performance, enhanced maneuverability, and class-leading mileage delivering the highest value to customers. An external fuel pump fitted outside the fuel tank reduces the maintenance time as it is easily accessible.
- Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI): The system uses onboard sensors to constantly inject optimum fuel and air mixture, which aids consistent power output, high fuel efficiency & fewer emissions.
- Friction Reduction: The piston cooling jet reduces friction & maintains optimum engine temperature. The offset cylinder and use of a rocker roller arm further reduce the frictional loss which not only helps in smooth and better power output but also improves fuel efficiency.
- The Solenoid Valve acting as an automatic choke system ensures a rich air-fuel mixture and provides the convenience of one time start at any point in time.
