Segment: Custom/Cruiser

Not too big and definitely not too small, the 2004 Shadow Sabre is a good proof for Honda's capability to create bikes with a strong character.

Boasting the same refined lines as the retro-look Aero models, the Shadow Sabre proudly displays massive cast wheels which stress out the compact attire of this machine.

The low seat inspires confidence for low-speed handling, while the forward controls offer decent of leg room for taller riders. Add in the punchy, hard-pulling 1100cc v-twin and smooth 5-speed transmission and you're most likely set for both city rides and interstate hauls.
