The 2012 Shadow RS is Honda's Sportster, if you wish.

Compact, yet providing a great riding stance, this bike has unmistakable elements which will appeal to those in love with the Forty-Eight looks. A peanut-ish tank, stacked bullet silencers in lustrous chrome, bar-mounted gauges and the upright riding position offering putting the rider in better control, they're all signature features for the roadster version of the Shadow.
