2013 Honda Shadow Aero VT750C Review

2013 Honda Shadow Aero VT750C

Classic Style. Modern Performance. Retro Price…

Honda’s line of Shadows are some of the most popular cruisers on the road. And one look at the Shadow Aero will tell you why. Classic, retro style, like the spoked wheels, full fenders, and long, chromed mufflers. Thoroughly modern performance courtesy of the 745cc V-twin engine, specially tuned for low-revving torque. And maintenance-reducing features like shaft final drive. Best of all, the Aero is a huge bargain, giving you a big-bike ride without the big-bike price. And it’s a bargain when it comes time to fill up, too. If you’re ready to turn some heads in a big way, and appreciate a bike that’s never going to go out of style, the Aero is the machine for you.

As a proven favorite, the Shadow® Aero® serves as a most satisfying ride for a wide range of enthusiasts. Factor in the Shadow Aero’s classic retro styling, low seat height, power-packed V-twin engine now with sophisticated Programmed Fuel Injection and fine handling—all at a price that’s just right for today’s budgets—and you have the makings of a winner.


Power Player.

There’s nothing like a V-twin when it comes to cruisin’. And the Shadow Aero gets one of our best: a 745cc powerplant that provides plenty of torque and a wide, user-friendly powerband.

Music to Your Ears.

The Aero features a custom two-into-two exhaust system, flowing into bullet-style mufflers. The result is a soul-stirring sound that’s classic V-twin cruiser, making the Aero a bike that sounds as good as it looks.

The Strong, Silent Type.

Cruisers should be about getting out and having fun, not about maintenance headaches. That’s why the Aero’s shaft final drive makes so much sense. Clean, virtually maintenance-free and efficient, it’s the smart choice.

As a proven favorite, the Shadow® Aero® serves as a most satisfying ride for a wide range of enthusiasts. Factor in the Shadow Aero’s classic retro styling, low seat height, power-packed V-twin engine now with sophisticated Programmed Fuel Injection and fine handling—all at a price that’s just right for today’s budgets—and you have the makings of a winner.

2013 Honda Shadow Aero VT750C Features and Benefits

Shaft Final Drive

Spoked Wheels – Spoked wheels give the Aero a classic look.

Full Front Fender – Wide metal front fender gives the Aero a classic styling touch.

Front Disc Brake – If there’s one place you DON’T want retro performance, it’s when it comes to your brakes. That’s why we gave the Shadow Aero a 296mm front disc for distinctly modern stopping power.

Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) – Forget about fiddling with a choke—the Shadow’s fuel injection system means no-hassle startups on cold mornings or at high altitudes, and optimal performance in any condition.

Five-Speed Transmission – Wide-ratio five-speed transmission lets you cruise the boulevard at a low, unhurried pace, yet lets you hop on the highway without revving the engine through the roof.

Chrome Highlights – Chrome highlights include cylinder-head cover, air-cleaner cover, engine sidecovers, brake and clutch-lever brackets, rear brake pedal, shift lever, handlebar, rear shock covers, and more.

V-Twin Engine – Nothing pumps out the torque like a big V-twin. The Aero’s power makes it perfect for both around-town cruising, commutes, and casual weekend-long rides.

Low Seat Height – Skimming the pavement at just 25.9 inches, the Aero’s low seat height makes flat-footing it at stoplights or in parking lots a breeze. And the Aero’s narrow seat/tank junction makes it feel even lower.

2-Into-2 Exhaust System – Sleek new pipes feature bullet-style mufflers for that classic cruiser style of yesteryear. Large-diameter head pipes and 2-into-2 system design combine to put out true, V-twin cruiser sound.

Comfortable Saddle – Broad, low-slung solo seat features a detachable passenger seat.
