I have a 2007 Honda VT750c (aero in the US) with 9000 km on the clock. I've done 3000 km on it. I was looking for a mid-size bike - 500cc, maybe 600 cc, when I saw one of these at the bike shop and despite the weight and being a 750, I took it for a ride. And immediately loved it. The power is mild. Lazy. The ride quality is good. The cornering is easy. I can't believe that a 750 can be such a mild thing. It's an excellent bike for the open road. The best things: the smooth, easy, mild power… Read Full Review

Love the fit, ride, excellent mpg. Did not like the front grill guard being absent, causing a rock/radiator leak...husband made one, and later year models came with the guard equipped. Oil leak at this high mileage but fixable, and I've gotten my fourth set of tires today. Would like better tires to come with the new bike. Bridgestones are poor quality, especially in a wet climate. Overall great bike, with some tweaks it would be excellent. … Read Full Review

It doesn't matter who Honda claims the VT750S is likely to buy the the bike, you'll either love it or hate it. If Harley still made the Sportster XL883, with the spoked wheels that it turned out through the nineties and early 2000s, then the VT750S would sell far fewer. Harley doesn't, so that's Honda's gain. A thousand miles after picking the machine up I felt it was time to give to write a review. Spoked chrome wheels are class, they are a pain to keep clean, but nothing says motorcycle to… Read Full Review

You simply can't go wrong with this bike. it has a low center of gravity and handles like a dream. It's a little underpowered, but still has more than enough for me as I'm 65 years old and just back in the saddle after a 41 year absence. Just like everyone else the first thing I did was replace the really uncomfortable stock seat with a Mustang solo seat. What a difference! I also added some red LED stop lights, and a set of Cobra pipes to give it a bit more of a voice as the stock 2 into 1… Read Full Review

i have currently owned my shadow for 2months now and im very happy with it and dont regret trading my er6 in for it. I do agree however that the seat is a let down on long rides. As for the power issue that was solved by fitting a k&n filter and cobra pipes and what difference that made! . The ride it self is comfortable and smooth thanks to it being shaft driven wich is usually only ever seen on high end luxury bikes… Read Full Review

Just returning to biking after about 40 years absence. I thought I had to have a Harley Davidson, but then I discovered the Honda Shadow Aero VT750!
With seating being about 25" off the ground, the center of gravity is perfect allowing the bike to handle like a dream. It corners very smoothly and it seems that all you have to do is think about turning and it reads your mind! I have the 750cc and it has plenty of power for my needs. I am not an interstate or long distance rider. I prfer to… Read Full Review

I am so impressed with the feel and the look of this bike. I am a very proud owner and like many other fans of the bike; just can not stop smiling.
Life if good! There is nothing to dislike about this bike… Read Full Review

I am yet another born again biker who deserted the fraternity in 1964 before returning to a 125 Suzuki Marauder two years ago. I needed to move to a bigger Cruiser and tested a Kawasaki 900, Suzuki M800 and a Triumph Speedmaster. I was settling for the latter but picked up a free newspaper and spotted the Honda advert. No Honda dealer in Leicester but had a test drive of the Shadow Spirit 750C at Pidcocks in Long Eaton and just loved the bike. Came home read the reviews and took the plunge. The… Read Full Review

Honda Shadow 2006 VT750C
Pros: Honda's lengendary reliability, a real head turner, low centre of gravity, easy to ride, smooth transmission, shaft-drive --wow.
Cons: the stock seat not the best on long rides. I added air-hawk cushions.
This was my "back in the saddle" bike after a 25year gap and I couldn't recommend a better one to start with. I love everything about this bike (except the seat). I put on Jardine slash cut pipes and OH what a sweet sound. I will miss that sound when I upgrade… Read Full Review

This is the best of the best. It can't get any better, the bike handles like a dream and runs even better. People say it doesn't have enough power....all i can say is if you need that much power, get a sport bike. I'm 42 and all i want to do is enjoy my life before it ends and there is no better way than cranking my Ninfo up and going for a ride. A man can't enjoy life better than getting on HIS motorcycle and enjoying the peace and quiet… Read Full Review

i bought my vt750c in march this year, the only downside of the bike for me is that it is down on horsepower, other than that i enjoy the bike, the riding position is spot on for me, and pillion according to the missus is comfortable, we did 1,600 miles in a week this year in irealand and it was comfortable for both of us… Read Full Review

smooth performance.easy to service.awkward to change back tyre,needs a form of centre stand to help. averaging 75mpg per week commuting plus runs.the seat could do with being a bit more supportive,and the passenger seat needs to be wider. love the feel of the Honda VT750 bike though .would buy another one… Read Full Review

Beatiful bike, that i've been enjoying riding. it does take a little time to warm up. common problem for V-Twin?
mine is the shadow spirit, so it's got brilliant paint work on the tank. attract plenty attention on the road and needless to say all that chrome.
things i like, low and comfortable seat, my friend is over 1.9m tall but also sits comfortably on the bike.i have not ridden any other bike, so i can't comment on performance. but she does ride well, once the engine is warmed up… Read Full Review

2 years ago, I had no intention of ever getting on a bike, let alone owning one. Due to neccesity I ended up buying a little rev and go scooter from honda, on it's first service I saw a Honda VT 750 Shadow in the showroom and straight away fell in love. The one I saw was old and in the horrible orange and black paint job, even though it looked a bit of a mess, it appealed to me.
A year later I picked up my brand new, shining, metalic blue and silver, very sexy VT 750 C. When the dealer wheeled… Read Full Review

I bought this Honda VT750 Shadow new last year (its a 2008) because I live out of town and wanted something a little better on fuel than my truck. Although it does get better than my truck, I'm disappointed in the fuel milage I'm getting. I cruise usually around 110 kph (65mph) on the highway and have not had the bike any faster than 125 kph. The bike now has approx 4000 km on it and the fuel milage is still well below what others are posting on this site. I'm getting somewhere between 18km… Read Full Review

Bought a new Honda VT750X 2009 shaft drive. Having had a number of Yamaha Viragos I thought i would try the New Honda. Good on most points. Handling very good, acceleration good comfortable riding position. Very disappointed that having a puncture after 742 miles to find out that you cannot take off the rear wheel without removing the Exhaust pipes / foot pegs etc.and then raising the bike 900 mm off the floor to remove the wheel from below the mudguard. This makes a normal bike puncture a 20… Read Full Review

Bought my Honda VT750 Shadow used in 2004 with 13,000 miles on it. I now have over 40,000 miles and my only maintenance has been tires, chains, front brake pads, oil changes, and one tune-up. It's a great bike. Extremely nimble for a cruiser. Rides low, is very balanced, and has a great feel. It won't win any drag races, but it has enough power for me and gets between 50-55 mpg in the city. I bought it with a Mustang seat, Memphis Shades windshield, and some leather saddle bags and I added Vans… Read Full Review
