ONE STANDS ABOVE ALL THE REST: FREEDOM.

bikes you’ll want to ride, like our Shadow ® and
Rebel ® cruisers. Bikes that are comfortable, that
don’t need a ton of maintenance and, most
important, are reliable. Of course, they look great
too—you can see that for yourself. But nothing
works like a Honda, and nothing lasts as long
with as few headaches. Because we think that
motorcycles are for riding, and that you should
enjoy that ride. Want a garage ornament? Fine.
But we’ll be out on the road.

SHADOW AERO
The first thing most people notice when they see a Shadow Aero ® is how
good it looks. Then they discover that it’s a 750 and they can’t believe it. And then they look at
the price tag, and their jaw really drops. Because at a time when most cruisers require a second
mortgage, a Shadow Aero is a monster bargain. Like all our 750s, you get plenty of power and
great handling. The V-twin engine features shaft final drive and tons of low-revving torque. The
seating position is comfortable and relaxed. This year we’ve added a sleek new two-into-two
exhaust system, and we offer five great color schemes.
