2016 Honda Shadow Aero Review

2016 Honda Shadow Aero on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Old-School Style. New-School Performance…

You don’t kick back and relax in a suit and tie. When you want to take it easy, you slip into something more comfortable, a little more your style. Same with a motorcycle. And time is the test of style. So when you want to go for a nice, relaxed ride, you want a bike that fits you like your favorite leather jacket or your old blue jeans, and one that looks just as chill too. And that’s what the Honda Shadow Aero is all about. Our Shadow line of cruisers are some of the most popular bikes on the road, and one look at the Shadow Aero will tell you why. Features like its spoked wheels, full fenders and long, chromed mufflers are all about taking it easy and looking good while you’re doing it. But the Aero rider also gets some thoroughly modern performance courtesy of this bike’s 745cc V-twin engine, specially tuned for low-revving torque. Maintenance-reducing features like shaft final drive make the Aero easy to own. And best of all, the Aero is a huge bargain, giving you a big-bike ride without the big-bike price.


V-Twin Power

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


The Right Sound

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.


Retro Meets Modern

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.

Best Of All, It’s A Honda.

Sure, the Aero looks like a million bucks with its classic cruiser styling cues. But underneath all that eye candy it’s pure Honda, a bike built for riders who want to get out and ride. That’s tough to pull off with a cruiser, but the Aero does it perfectly, because it’s full of Honda engineering. At first glance the Aero is a beauty, but the closer you look, you’ll see how it’s a motorcycle full of refinement and modern technology.


Options & Pricing

The Shadow Aero may have a cool, retro look, but there’s nothing retro about its performance or technology. Especially when it comes to the Aero’s brakes. We offer the option of our Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) on the Aero. It gives you an added level of stopping control in less-than-ideal conditions. Rather have an Aero with our standard brakes? We’ve got you covered there too. The choice is yours, and they’re both great bikes.

2016 Honda Shadow Aero www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Spoked Wheels

Spoked wheels give the Aero a classic look.

 

Front-Disc Brake

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

 

Full Front Fender

Wide metal front fender gives the Aero a classic styling touch.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Five-Speed Transmission

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

 

Three-Valve Dual-Plug Combustion Chamber

 

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.

 

Shaft Final Drive

 

2-Into-2 Exhaust System

Sleek 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.
