Segment: Custom/Cruiser

A low seat, a skinny front wheel, ample bars reaching back, bullet-styled dual exhausts and plenty of chrome parts and accents.

Oh, and the traditional reliability of Honda's v-twin engines. And in case the displacement is in the lower-middleweight class, then we're definitely talking about the 1999 VT600C Shadow VLX.

1999 brings Pearl Dark Red/Black and Pearl Silver/Black liveries to join the classic all-Black paint scheme. A great bike for new riders, the VLX comes with a compliant 4-speed, wide-ratio transmission and smooth suspensions for both the city and the highway runs.
