2009 Honda Shadow 750 Aero
MSRP $6,999

It’s no surprise that the Shadow Aero has been one of Honda’s best selling middleweight cruisers. With one look you’ll note a slew of features—the 749cc V-twin, bullet-style mufflers, classic fenders, spoked wheels, a ton of chrome, and five gorgeous new paint schemes—you’d expect on a bike twice this size. For twice the price.
