Honda Shadows. The Art of Form and Function

When it comes to cruisers, looks can only get you so far. At some point, you have to perform. And no custom does it better—or more reliably—than a Honda Shadow. Decades of Honda innovation stand behind every Shadow, showcased in such features as our three-valve cylinder-head design and the reliable, virtually maintenance-free shaft drive. And that's exactly why Honda is the only name you need to know when you're looking for a new cruiser.

  • Three-Valve Dual-Plug Combustion Chamber

  • Shaft Final Drive

  • Unique Custom Dragbike Features

    • 21” front wheel helps create a narrow, hot rod custom look while providing a light steering feel.
    • Incredibly low 25.7” seat height completes the low, dragster-style picture, and also helps inspire rider confidence.
