Take a peak at my new-to-me Motorcycle, the Honda Shadow VLX 600, and thanks to the kind folks at CycleSprings for allowing me to hold this baby...The Shadow VT 600, also known as the VLX 600, is a strong yet smooth V-twin cruiser-type motorcycle. Its huge following is well deserved. This reliable, classy-looking motorcycle will take you far, and its pleasant, throaty rumble will stick in your mind. The Honda Shadow 600 is a serious machine that remains well within the capabilities of a beginning rider. Under the Seat The Honda Shadow VLX 600 features a powerful, liquid-cooled 583cc V-twin engine which generates 39hp and 36ftlbs of torque. Its home is in the 65mph-and-above range, cruising nicely at 70mph. The seat height is a fairly low 27.2", accommodating for riders both short and tall. These features make the bike not only great for beginners but also demands to be taken seriously. Background on the Bike The Shadow line has maintained a large fan base ever since its introduction in 1983, the second Honda V-twin (the famous CX series was the first). The VT600 came along in 1988, introducing a double-cradle steel frame to the series.
