Classic Style. Modern Performance.
Honda’s line of Shadows are some of the most popular cruisers on the road. One look at the Shadow will tell you why. Classic, retro style, spoked wheels, full fenders and long, chromed mufflers. Thoroughly modern performance courtesy of the 745cc V-twin HYPERLINK “http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcycles/2013models/2013-Honda-ShadowAero-VT750C.htm”engine, specially tuned for low-revving torque and maintenance-reducing features like shaft final drive. The best part about it , is that the Shadow is a huge bargain, giving you a big-bike ride without the big-bike price. And it’s a bargain when the time comes 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 Shadow is the bike for you.
As a proven favorite, the Shadow serves as a most satisfying ride for a wide range of enthusiasts. Factor in the Shadow classic retro styling, low seat height, power-packed V-twin engine now with sophisticated Programmed HYPERLINK “http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcycles/2013models/2013-Honda-ShadowAero-VT750C.htm”Fuel Injection and fine handling—all at a price that’s just right for today’s budgets—and you have the makings of a winner.
There’s nothing like a V-twin when it comes to cruising. And the Shadow is one of the best: 745cc powerplant that provides plenty of torque and a wide, user-friendly powerband.
The Shadow 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 Shadow a bike that sounds as good as it looks.
Cruisers should be about getting out and having fun, not about maintenance headaches. That’s why the Shadow shaft final drive makes so much sense. Clean, virtually maintenance-free and efficient, it’s the smart choice.
2013 Honda Shadow Aero VT750C Key Features
745cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin
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.
Five-Speed Transmission – Wide-ratio five-speed transmission lets you cruise the boulevard at a low, unhurried pace, yet lets you hop on the highway without revving the engine through the roof.
Chrome Highlights – 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.
V-Twin Engine – Nothing pumps out the torque like a big V-twin. The Shadow’s power makes it perfect for both around-town cruising, commutes, and casual weekend-long rides.
Low Seat Height – Skimming the pavement at just 658mm, the Shadow low seat height makes flat-footing it at stoplights or in parking lots a breeze. And the Shadow’s narrow seat/tank junction makes it feel even lower.
2-Into-2 Exhaust System – Sleek new 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.
Comfortable Saddle – Broad, low-slung solo seat features a detachable passenger seat.
