The 2011 Honda Shadow Aero Cruiser Motorcycle

Honda, Honda Motorcycles, Honda Motorbikes, Honda Motors, Honda Shadow, Honda Shadow Phantom, 2011 Honda, 2011 Honda Motorcycles, 2011 Honda Shadow PhantomHonda’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.

There’s Nothing Retro About How It Performs.

Like everyone else, what first got you looking at a Shadow Aero was its perfectly executed Retro style. But the Aero’s beauty is way, way more than just sheet metal deep. Like every Honda, it offers an unmatched level of quality, innovation, and value. And like the Aero’s good looks, that never goes out of style.

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.

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

Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)

Forget about fiddling with a chokeā€”the Shadow’s fuel injection system means no-hassle startups on cold mornings or at high altitudes, and optimal performance in any condition.

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.

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.
