2012 Honda Motorcycle

Combining retro styling with Honda technology and performance, the 2012 Honda Shadow Aero ABS is a higher tech machine than its appearance would suggest.

The front wheel has a single 296mm disc that has stopping power augmented by an anti-lock braking system and a fat 17-inch front tire.A 64.6-inch wheelbase works with 34 degrees of rake for a steady ride.

The fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, 745cc, 52-degree twin has a SOHC configuration, with three valve heads and two spark plugs per cylinder. For those who can do without ABS, take $1000 off the price.
