2011 Honda Shadow RS: to be a Japanese Bonneville rival

through Honda’s latest new models press release, we nodded off from boredom; it was some new cruiser colors, new on a side-by-side and some mild to children’s dirt bikes. we saw this 2011 Honda RS and got excited. Yes, we did just put and “Honda Shadow” in the same and no, we weren’t even being

For those of you not keeping track of things (probably 99.9 of you), the Shadow RS is Honda’s old cheap cruiser, just now mid-mount foot controls actually make it rideable and handlebars. Admittedly tiny but they’re enough to transform the from a worthy-but-forgotten cruiser a legitimate competitor to the Triumph A retro standard that has styling and decent quality

Of course, we would still forgotten that the Shadow if it weren’t for this new paint. from December, the tri-color scheme could have straight off an RC30 and its even by the classic Honda wing. Not are we huge fans of both wings and HRC colors, but they a shift in visual impetus for the transforming it from Harley-clone something that’s actually to be

a Honda.

If you’re like me, you’re utterly ignorant of the Shadow’s so let’s recap them: liquid-cooled v-twin; 45bhp; 56mpg; 507lbs. That slightly unfavorably to the 865cc Bonneville’s 66bhp; 50lb/ft; and 495 but neither of these bikes are numbers, they’re about a retro riding experience and the about as exciting to ride as a machine thanks to its character-free (the Scrambler’s 270° order fixes that). We ridden a Shadow, but hopefully its makes riding a little interesting, we’ve heard things from our buddy Rex Roy .

So let’s add up what we have A standard-style, nice looking, v-twin with mid-mount low-ish bars, solid and great colors that 56mpg? A reliable, basic that’s not afraid to be Japanese? sounds like a pretty bike to us.

In fact, as hyper-critical aesthetes, we have one minor criticism: the old Honda wing, as seen on RC30. would have even better.

Oh and don’t Honda assures me that more 2011 models this fall and, my outrageous anti-cruiser, exciting-bike even says, “You’ll them. ”
