Honda: Made In USA. These words, printed on the passenger seat of Honda's Shadow 1100 American Classic Edition (ACE), tell the whole story behind Honda's entry into the Harley-Davidson controlled cruiser bike market: It's made in America, it looks American, it sounds American, heck, it even feels American.
The retro Shadow Aero 1100 will move you, both backward and forward. The look is older than Honda itself. The elegant, flowing curves and clean detailing on Honda's latest cruiser stretch back to pre-war years. In the 1930s, what we would now call "high-tech" design took its inspiration from the evolving science of aerodynamics. Smoothly rounded designs pioneered on aircraft were applied to cars, trains, appliances, and motorcycles. Luxury automobiles developed long, low, teardrop contours. The style spoke of elegance, comfort and speed.
This bike has been modified and it comes with hard boxes, highway engine bars, fog lights, bags and speakers amongst others.
