2011 Honda Motorcycle
A hit right out of the box when it was introduced last year, the Honda Shadow RS takes a styling page from classic 750cc flat track racers of the 1980s.
It doesn’t stop there, however. The motor dimensions and ergonomics also pay homage to the days when Honda took on Harley on the mile and half-mile ovals.
One complaint we had last year was that the paint was non-descript. Honda has done exactly as we requested and given the RS a treatment that mimics the look of the bikes that Bubba Shobert and Ricky Graham rode to victory.
