Hot performance and a cool retro look — that's the VT750C Shadow Aero in a nutshell. Its sophisticated 745 cc V-twin engine produces plenty of power for effortless city or highway cruising, but it doesn't overwhelm you with its size and weight the way some big-bore bikes can. And check out those classically valanced fenders, the broad, low-slung solo seat with detachable passenger section, the wide tires rolling on spoke wheels, and the suspension that looks retro but feels modern-day plush. And for 2008 the Aero boasts new dual exhaust pipes that sound as good as they look. Easy on the eyes, and easy on the wallet. The VT750C Shadow Aero sure is an easy bike to like.
