2006 Honda Shadow Aero

The retro Shadow Aero features a powerful 750cc class v-twin engine, very low seat height, shaft drive and the full-sized looks and performance of classic cruiser styling from days of old. You won’t find a cruiser with more for less - anywhere

New for 2006 New Titanium/Flame color joins classic Black.


The Shadow(R) Sabre’s engine pumps out class-leading low-end and mid-range power for superb acceleration and gratifying roll-on performance. The engine’s broad power delivery provides spirited performance and exceptional rideability around town or on the open road. Rubber-mounted engine with offset-dual-pin crankshaft provides perfect primary balance, enhances engine smoothness and delivers superior rider comfort. Three-valve cylinder-head design utilizes two spark plugs per cylinder for efficient combustion and high power at all rpm. Maintenance-free hydraulic valve-lash adjusters eliminate routine valve adjustments.
Other maintenance-free features include digital ignition and automatic cam-chain tensioners. Dual 36mm constant-velocity carburetors offer crisp throttle response at all rpm. Reliable electric-starter system. Extensive chrome finishing of engine parts includes crankcase covers, clutch cover and left-rear engine cover. Black-finished crankcases and cylinders with buffed fin edges complete the custom street-rod look. Chromed dual-exhaust system enhances appearance and produces throaty exhaust note. Reliable five-speed transmission with carefully selected gear ratios to maximize acceleration.
