Segment: Custom/Cruiser

The 2012 VT750C Shadow Aero is a real blast form the past, as it evokes the design and attire of the classic bikes of the 60's.

A teardrop tank with tall bars, a tank-mounted instrument cluster, dual bullet exhausts, laced wheels wrapped by deeply-valanced fenders and plenty of chrome, this machine brings back the glory of the past.

The engine is liquid-cooled despite its generous fins, and from a technical point of view, the bike is all modern. And Honda's smart way to hide modern tech in plain sight makes the classic attire shine even more bright. A middleweight machine that's exceedingly maneuverable, the 2012 VT750C Shadow Aero is a nifty all-rounder cruiser.
