Segment: Custom/Cruiser

On the small side if judged by its displacement, the 2004 Honda VT600C Shadow VLX is a great way for newer riders to enjoy their first cruiser experience.

Nimble and light, and providing a reassuring feeling for the smaller riders, this bike comes with all the bells and whistles of its bigger sibling, in terms of looks and finish.

Finned cylinders provide the classic look for the liquid-cooled engine, while the hidden rear monoshock adds to the hardtail looks of the bike. Add in the classy peanut tank and spoked wheels for an even more powerful look, with the sculpted, lower-back support seat and pull-back bars making the bike look even better.
