In love with the looks of the Forty-Eight but not really into the H-D bikes? No problem, Honda has got you covered with the nifty Shadow RS.

Characterized by the more active, upright riding position, this bike has higher footpegs and a peanut fuel tank harking back to the 70's. With an ageless styling mixing roadster DNA with functionality and comfort, the 2011 Shadow RS is great for both commuting and leisure.

Above all, the liquid-cooled 750cc-class of the 2011 Shadow RS is a brawny power unit which can deliver thrust to raise the pulse at a jerk of the throttle. With a wide-ratio 5-speed gearbox, riding this beast is easy and fun, in the urban jungle or on winding countryside roads.
