2013 Honda Shadow Aero®

Shadow® Aero® (VT750C)

Classic Style, Modern Performance, Retro Price Honda's line of Shadows are some of the most popular cruisers on the road. And one look at the Shadow Aero® will tell you why. Classic, retro style, like the spoked wheels, full fenders, and long, chromed mufflers. Thoroughly modern performance courtesy of the 745 cc V-twin engine, specially tuned for low-revving torque. And maintenance-reducing features like shaft final drive. Best of all, the Aero is a huge bargain, giving you a big-bike ride without the big-bike price. And it's a bargain when it comes time to fill up, too. If you're ready to turn some heads in a big way, and appreciate a bike that's never going to go out of style, the Aero is the machine for you.
