Segment: Custom/Cruiser

Middleweight cruisers can be gorgeous, and a quick look at the 2006 VT600CD Shadow VLX Deluxe is the perfect example.

With a classic chopper stance and a very low seat, this bike looks good and feel very reassuring. Add in laced wheels a slim front fender, the old-school peanut tank and the chopped rear mudguard, and the recipe is almost complete.

Count in the rich chrome details, excellent maneuverability and punchy but economical 583cc v-twin lump, and you've got a bike which can do it all: commuting, urban errands, leisure rides and even touring, with optional luggage systems and a windscreen.
