Description:

Honda's Shadow ACE 750. Honda's Shadow American Classic Edition, the budget-minded cruiser that thinks it's a one-off, hand-built show bike. All VT750s boast fit and finish equal to our top-of-the-line cruisers. Everywhere you look - the fork covers, shift lever, rear brake lever, footpeg brackets, chain guard, cylinder-head covers, left and right engine covers and the sidestand - the A.C.E. glitters with a quality finish that other mid-sized cruisers can only dream about.

Of course, the A.C.E.'s performance is none too shabby either, thanks to its 745cc 52-degree V-twin fed by two 36mm constant velocity carburetors. Three-valve heads and twin spark plugs take care of the combustion process efficiently while the self-adjusting hydraulic valves, automatic cam chain tensioner and solid state electronic ignition system keep maintenance to a minimum.

Exclusive to the VT750CA is its monochrome Black paint.

Exclusive to the VT750CB is its Red paint with silver pinstripe.

Exclusive to the VT750CC is its Red/Black and Silver/Black paint schemes.

Exclusive to the VT750CD is its unique Candy Orange/Orange Motif paint scheme.

Honda's Shadow Spirit 750. It's the hot-rod with a heart of gold. And value unmatched in its class. Like the A.C.E., the Spirit is powered by our powerful 745cc V-twin. It boasts three valves per cylinder and twin spark plugs for maximum power and impressive low-rpm torque. Yet, because it's a Honda, you'll be able to spend Saturday riding, not tinkering, thanks to the maintenance-free solid state ignition and automatic cam chain adjusters.

Despite all its technology, it's the Spirit's style that shines. From its lustrous paint to the chopped rear fender, the Spirit is pure performance cruiser. There's the glitter of all that chrome and what says moxie better than twin staggered 'shotgun' mufflers.

Honda's Shadow Spirit 750. Fast on its feet. Easy on your wallet.

Notes:

The Shadow cruiser line (VT500/VT600/VT700/VT750/VT800) contains some of the most reliable motorcycles manufactured in the past couple of decades. IGM especially recommeds the 1986-87 VT700 Shadows, which combine striking looks and genuine comfort with the low maintenance of shaft drive and hydraulically-adjusted valves. In IGM's opinion, this model makes a better all-around motorcycle than any of the new mid-sized cruisers. The 1988 VT800 looks much the same as the VT700, but it only comes with a four-speed transmission, detracting from its versatility. - IGM

MBG Says: Shadow ACE 750 (Rating 10/10) If Honda's intention is to steal sales from Yamaha's V-Star 650, the least that can be said is that is looks good. On the other hand, one shouldn't feel sorry for Yamaha who can also play at this game (V-Star 1100). As for the ACE 750, it is a bike with a very pleasant engine, good handling, nice comfort level and excellent finish. For the price, it's almost embarrassing to get so much!

UMG Says: An unlikely but amusing combination of a prettified VF750 engine in cruiser clothes. Long, heavy chassis with a seat height suited to midgets, or the Japanese home market, makes for some weirdness on UK roads. Lowly tuned and well developed motor's unlikely to give much trouble, especially as the chassis limits thrashing. Single front disc hard pressed.

IGM Says Shadow ACE: (Best Buy, Best First Bike) While the 750 Shadows are less expensive than their larger siblings and just as attractive, they require more routine maintenance because they have chain final drives and manually adjusted valves. Despite the extra maintenance, they are still nice bikes. Any of the small Shadows make good bikes for a beginner.

IGM Says Shadow ACE Deluxe: (Best Buy, Best First Bike) The same as the regular 750 Shadow, with a few chrome bits and a fancy paint job thrown in.
