Segment: Custom/Cruiser

ACE stands for American Classic Edition, and this suffix brings a host of eye-pleasing accents to the 2001 Honda Shadow.

Created as a budget-minded middleweight cruiser, the 2001 VT750 Shadow ACE is great for those who are not thrilled to navigate aboard a huge bike through the urban clutter and are also looking for good fuel efficiency.

However, the smaller displacement does not necessarily involve compromises: the Shadow ACE sports the same impeccable craftsmanship and reliability Honda is famous for and with a wide palette of optional accessories, things can look even better.
