Honda VT1100 Shadow

The cruiser model Honda VT1100 Shadow appeared in 1985 in the American market. In those years, the model was distinguished by high power (78 hp), double disc brakes at the front and a hydraulic clutch. The factory designation of the model is VT1100C. Since 1987, the motorcycle has been updated externally and technically - the wheelbase is increased, the mufflers on the sides are transferred to the right side, the maximum power is reduced (to 67 hp), the operating speed is significantly reduced, which increases traction on the "bottom" and "middle" ", the hydraulic clutch gives way to the cable clutch. It was with this modification that the popularity of the Honda VT1100 Shadow model began - the 1985-1986 versions are quite rare.

`` Main modifications of Honda VT1100 Shadow :

  • Honda VT1100C Shadow (1987-1996) - the basic version of the motorcycle. Features alloy wheels, dual right exhaust, 13 liter fuel tank, 4-speed gearbox and rear drum brake.
  • Honda VT1100C Spirit (1997-2007) - successor to the previous modification. Visually very similar to its predecessor. It differs in the shape of the exhaust, the tank and some visual features.

  • Honda VT1100C2 A.C.E. (1995-1999) - the classic version of the motorcycle. ACE stands for American Classic Edition. The model features spoked wheels, longer fenders, wider wheels, rear disc brakes, a crankshaft with one crank arm (for increased vibration) and 53 hp.
  • Honda VT1100T A.C.E. Tourer ' (1998-2001) - touring version of the previous modification. Differs in the presence of plastic trunks, windshield, alloy wheels, an exhaust system on the sides and other wheels.
