2020 Honda Shadow Aero (2)

Honoring tradition and style while still prioritizing performance and ease of ownership, Honda’s Shadow Aero® is a satisfying ride for a wide range of enthusiasts. Classic V-twin cruiser styling emphasizes retro lines, an ample front fender, chrome highlights and spoke wheels, but it comes with sensible elements like programmed fuel injection and shaft final drive, all for an affordable price.

Some classics never go out of style. Like your favorite leather jacket, or blue jeans. Or, if we’re talking about cruisers, a bike like the 2020 Honda Shadow Aero. Talk about timeless—for thousands of riders, the Aero just looks the way a motorcycle should. Sure, part of that is due to the chrome highlights, the V-twin engine and the swept-back twin exhaust. And thanks to the low-slung seat, pullback handlebar, and forward-set pegs, the Aero is also extraordinarily comfortable to ride, too. Why not see for yourself? Want to combine classic looks with modern engineering? The Aero is also available with optional anti-lock brakes.


745cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine produces impressive power over a broad rpm range.
Crankshaft features long-stroke design to produce strong V-twin feel and low-rpm torque peak.
Three-Valve Dual-Plug Combustion Chamber.
Wide-ratio five-speed transmission.
Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) for good throttle response and fuel efficiency.
Custom two-into-two exhaust system, flowing into bullet-style mufflers provides soul-stirring sound that’s classic V-twin cruiser.
Shaft final-drive system provides smooth and reliable low-maintenance operation.
