Traditional Style. Modern Performance.

Cruiser-class motorcycles are a great choice. You get a relaxed riding position. It’s easy to put your feet down at stoplights. Their big, twin-cylinder engine makes lots of power down low. And they just look the way a lot of people think a motorcycle should.

That’s what the Honda Shadow Aero is all about. The look? That speaks for itself. Streamline modern meets art deco meets 1950s American Classic. Features like its spoked wheels, full fenders and long, chromed mufflers are all about taking it easy and looking good while you’re doing it. But the Aero rider also gets some thoroughly modern performance courtesy of this bike’s 745cc V-twin engine, specially tuned for low-revving torque. Maintenance-reducing features like shaft final drive make this motorcycle truly easy to own. Plus, the Aero is a huge bargain, giving you a big-bike ride without the big-bike price.
