If it's Aero, then it's a classic looks bike, and the 2001 Honda VT1100C3 Shadow Aero is not making an exception.

Laced wheels, chromed 2-into-1 exhausts, ample, pull-back bars and a tank-mounted nacelle, valanced fenders and a sober gloss black paint, the VT1100C3 Shadow Aero harks back to the time when bikes were clean and mean.

With a liter-class v-twin, power and torque are never going to let you down, no matter whether you're crossing the town or heading on a two-wheeled vacation. Touring accessories are also available, such as a windscreen and saddlebags.
