Segment: Custom/Cruiser

A bike doesn't necessarily have to be big to be cool, and the 2006 VT750DC Shadow Spirit is the perfect model to prove this.

Following in the tradition of the Sportster, this bike is compact and this makes it very nimble and easy to handle at both highway and parking lot speed. Classic details such as the laced wheels, bullet exhausts, ova intake and teardrop tank allow for no mistakes: there's much historic DNA in this bike.

Probably the best=selling cruiser Honda ever made, the VT750DC Shadow Spirit offers plenty of punch in a non-intimidating package, with the 745cc v-twin being easy to master. Great as a commuter, the bike can also serve as a good companion for overnight trips, especially with an optional luggage system.
