Segment: Custom/Cruiser

If you love the looks of Honda's big-bore machines but are not confident or skilled for them yet, maybe a middleweight cruiser such as the VT750DC Shadow Spirit is the right way.

With styling inspired by bikes three times its size, the 2002 VT750DC Shadow Spirit retains the full cruiser design of the Honda machinery, and delivers the same acclaimed reliability.

A great way to get used to the world of cruisers, the 2002 Shadow Spirit can serve you as a nifty daily commuter and trusted partner for city errands, but with luggage system upgrades it can also turn into a bike fit for longer hauls and touring.
