You don’t kick back and relax in a suit and tie. When you want to take it easy, you slip into something more comfortable, a little more your style. Same with a motorcycle. And time is the test of style. So when you want to go for a nice, relaxed ride, you want a bike that fits you like your favorite leather jacket or your old blue jeans, and one that looks just as chill too. And that’s what the Honda® Shadow Aero® is all about. Our Shadow® line of cruisers are some of the most popular bikes on the road, and one look at the Shadow Aero® will tell you why. 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 the Aero® easy to own. And best of all, the Aero® is a huge bargain, giving you a big-bike ride without the big-bike price.
Spoked wheels give the Aero® a classic look.
Wide metal front fender gives the Aero® a classic styling touch.
If there’s one place you DON’T want retro performance, it’s your brakes. That’s why we gave the Shadow Aero® a 296mm front disc for distinctly modern stopping power.
- Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)
Forget about fiddling with a choke—the Shadow®'s fuel injection system means no-hassle startups on cold mornings or at high altitudes, and optimal performance in any condition.
Nothing pumps out the torque like a big V-twin. The Aero®’s power makes it perfect for both around-town cruising, commutes and casual weekend-long rides.
Chrome highlights include cylinder-head cover, air-cleaner cover, engine sidecovers, brake and clutch-lever brackets, rear brake pedal, shift lever, handlebar, rear shock covers and more.
Wide-ratio five-speed transmission lets you cruise the boulevard at a low, unhurried pace, yet allows you hop on the highway without revving the engine through the roof.
Skimming the pavement at just 25.9 inches, the Aero®’s low seat height makes flat-footing it at stoplights or in parking lots a breeze. And the Aero®’s narrow seat/tank junction makes it feel even lower.
Broad, low-slung solo seat features a detachable passenger seat.
Sleek pipes feature bullet-style mufflers for that classic cruiser style of yesteryear. Large-diameter head pipes and 2-into-2 system design combine to put out true, V-twin cruiser sound.
