Old-School Style. New-School Performance.
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.
V-Twin Power: There’s nothing like a V-twin when it comes to cruising. And the Shadow Aero gets one of our best: a 745cc powerplant that provides plenty of torque and a wide, user-friendly powerband.
The Right Sound: The Aero features a custom two-into-two exhaust system, flowing into bullet-style mufflers. The result is a soul-stirring sound that's classic V-twin cruiser, making the Aero a bike that sounds as good as it looks.
Retro Meets Modern: Cruisers should be about getting out and having fun, not about maintenance headaches. That’s why the Aero’s shaft final drive makes so much sense. Clean, virtually maintenance-free and efficient, it’s the smart choice.
