Impressive!!
By Jason Phlipot(Owner), Jun. 25, 2009
Wow! What a great value! Bought the 2009 Shadow Aero back in March and have over 2,000 miles on the road. It's my second bike and can't believe how easy it is to handle.

SMOOTH ON THE TAKE OFF
By HARVEY SALLEY(Owner), Feb. 15, 2009

More Bike for the Buck
By Dwight Hayes(Owner), Feb. 3, 2010
The Honda Shadow is a great economy vehicle with a big bike look and ride. It comes with a first class two tone paint job that makes a “newby” wonder if it is really a classic. The 750cc version is a tad underpowered for its size, but is great on gas mileage-around 36-40 miles per gallon on the op... Read Full Review
