Lately the humongous-displacement cruisers with their extreme dimensions seem to get the lion’s share of everyone’s attention. Meanwhile, people are actually buying the smaller models in droves; Honda’s 750cc Shadow ACE was in fact the best-selling model in the company’s street motorcycle lineup for 2002.

To stay fresh in the game, for 2004 Honda’s Shadow Aero has undergone a major redesign, giving it a retro-look along with a strong dose of VTX styling—including large valanced fenders similar to its bigger brethren. Despite its relatively small displacement for a cruiser, the Aero now has the appearance of a much larger machine, which is especially accentuated by its oh-so-loonnggg rear fender. Another major change is the switch from chain to shaft final drive, which reduces maintenance and cleaning chores.

Motivation comes from a carryover 52-degree V-twin with single overhead cams and three-valve cylinder heads. It features a long-stroke design for big V-twin feel and low-rpm torque, along with two spark plugs per cylinder for combustion efficiency. A single 34mm CV carb mixes the juice, and compression has been bumped up slightly to 9.6:1 for a little extra punch.
