2018 Shadow Aero ABS

2018 Shadow Aero ABS

Description

YESTERDAY'S STYLE. TODAY'S FEATURES.

Classic looks go a long way: full fenders, spoked wheels, a long, chromed mufflers. And when you add in the modern reliability and quality of a 745cc Honda V-twin, you get a bike that's practically irresistible. The Shadow Aero delivers the best of both classic and modern worlds, and is an excellent way to explore yours.

FEATURES

PERFORMANCE

V-TWIN ENGINE

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.

STYLE

2-INTO-2 EXHAUST SYSTEM

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.

FULL FRONT FENDER

Wide metal front fender gives the Aero a classic styling touch.

SPOKED WHEELS

Spoked wheels give the Aero a classic look.

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.

COMFORT

COMOFRTABLE SADDLE

Broad, low-slung solo seat features a detachable passenger seat.

LOW SEAT HEIGHT

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.

DRIVETRAIN

SHAFT FINAL DRIVE

Clean, efficient, proven, low-maintenance. Shaft final drive is the perfect choice for a machine like this, and for riders who pile on the miles. You never have to worry about lubrication or adjustment out on the road. And an added plus: it helps keep your bike cleaner, too.

FIVE-SPEED TRANSMISSION

Wide-ratio five-speed transmission lets you cruise the boulevard at a low, unhurried pace, yet allows you to hop on the highway without revving the engine through the roof.

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.

THREE-VALVE DUAL-PLUG COMBUSTION CHAMBER

It’s the best of both worlds: The three-valve combustion chambers used on many of our V-twin cruisers feature two intake valves and one exhaust, helping them breathe efficiently to boost both horsepower and torque.

ENGINEERING

FRONT-DISC BRAKE

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. Additionally, our ABS model comes with Honda’s Anti-Lock Brake System.
