Segment: Custom/Cruiser

The 2003 VT600C Shadow VLX is a good proof that smaller choppers can look really neat.

Packing an unintimidating engine into a frame with both comfort and good rideability, this bike is a great first step into the cruiser world. Reassuring and easily maneuverable even at very low speeds, this bike has all the classic features one could long for: plenty of chromed parts and accents, lace wheels, ample bars and a small, retro headlight, and the classic v-twin rumble.

The bullet-style dual exhausts also share the chrome finish and hark back to the old Sportster looks. With the bar-mounted instruments, the VT600C Shadow VLX looks very clean and tidy, a perfect way to ride on a daily basis wherever your business calls.
