Segment: Custom/Cruiser

The Honda Shadow VLX is THE middleweight cruiser.

Compact, yet providing a comfy ride thanks to the forward foot controls, bucket seat and fluid bars reaching back to the relaxed position, the 2001 VT600C Shadow VLX is as good for longer trips as it is a handy tool for cross-town traffic.

With hardtail looks and a hidden monoshock rear suspension, the VT600C Shadow VLX also brings cool, laced wheels to the game, plenty of chromed out parts and dual bullet exhausts which really look a lot like the middleweight American bike, (read Sportster).
