Segment: Custom/Cruiser

The 1000 Shadow Aero is somewhat of a nostalgic bike, with its styling harking back to a bygone era.

However, the modern cues are skillfully integrated with the classic design and the present-day technology is a great complement to the retro attire.

Though classic in appearance, the VT1100C3 Shadow Aero brings a liquid-cooled engine for unrivaled performance even in the warmest of summers. Pulled back bars and slightly forward foot controls deliver enhanced ergonomics, making the bike as good a long-distance fun machine as it it usable in the city.
