2007 Honda Shadow Aero®

Shadow Aero® (VT750)

The only thing more stunning than this machine's sweet retro styling accents is its unbelievable price tag. Long, low, powerful and covered in chrome from the fork covers to the rear brake pedal, with spoked wheels and classic valanced fenders, the 750 cc V-twin Shadow Aero delivers full-size looks and muscle at a mid-size price. California version differs slightly due to emissions equipment.
