FS: 1989 Suzuki GSX-R750K- 13,240 miles – JS1GR77A8K2102000 –  $7500.00

This gorgeous 1989 Suzuki GSX-R750K “Slingshot” edition was brought to SUB moto service for a “make run” and ultimately a full restoration. Our service department took it apart, looked it over closely, any parts showing excessive wear and tear were repaired, refinished or replaced. This almost 30 year old GSX-R had held up well.

It received a full service, new tires, all fluids were replaced and a complete carburetor rebuild including all rubber internal parts.. The original bodywork was sent out to be professionally inspected for any cracks or weak spots, Then repaired, gas tank cleaned out and everything repainted to exact factory specs even using an NOS Suzuki decal kit! All rubber pads and cushions mounting the tank and bodywork were also replaced. The original white wheels were sent out to be professionally powder coated, we cleaned and re-greased all the wheel bearings, reinstalled and then slipped on a fresh pair of Michelin Pilot Power 2CT’s.

This GSX-R750K is not a concourse level restoration and really should be ridden and enjoyed, these are great bikes and a wonderful model series.

Over $6500 spent in restoration! It will stand out in the crowd, Blue/White combo is always Suzuki’s most popular and this one is a true classic. We just finished up some final details and it is ready to go!

Here’s how TotalMotorcycle.com described this series

1989 Suzuki GSX-R750K

2nd Generation Suzuki GSX-R750: Improving on a legend

New styling smooth and aerodynamic styling with big changes – Bigger valves, new high-lift camshaft, 36 mm contant-velocity semi-flatslide carbs and up rated suspension, wheels and tyres, 73 x 44.7 mm short-stroke motor, thinner piston rings and bigger main bearings. These new changes produced 112 hp at 11,000 rpm and model a dry weight of 195 kg. The lowered ground clearance and the adoption of 17″ wheels which offered only a slim margin of error.

The 1988 Suzuki GSX-R750 was examined and changed, from the engine to the chassis: The fairing was redesigned for 5.7% less frontal projection and 11% lower drag. Shortened 1400mm wheelbase, lightweight aluminium alloy frame with 45mm box tube main section and the cast swing arm pivot offered 60% more ridity. Front fork stanchion tubes were increased to 43mm diameter with variable damper adjuster type inner rods. Full floating rear suspension with new linkage and needle bearings for smoothness. Opposed 4 piston brake calipers, new weight-saving hollow-typecast wheels and wide Michelin radial tyres.

The distinctive air-cooled with SACS engine received larger diameter oil hose and less restrictive joints for 20% increase in the coolant flow and the large 15 row cooler improved the cooling efficiency by 48%. The red line started at 13,000 rpm. Engine bore and stroke changed from the previous 70 x 48.7mm to shorter stroke 73 x 44.7mm to reduce reciprocating motion mechanical loss.

The new Slingshot carburetors were equipped with lightweight throttle valves for increased throttle responsiveness. Another important addition was the incorporation of SACI (Suzuki Condensed Air Intake) system bringing fresh air from ducts on the front of the fairing to the carburetor intake for maximizing cylinder charging efficiency

1989 brought about minor changes such as: Modified lower bodywork, changes to graphics and silver exhaust silencers, the exhaust manifold now featured small chamfers on the collector for increased ground clearance, change to the rear shock mounting geometry and front fork length to improve ground clearance. Gear ratio revisions in 3rd, 4th and 5th gears offered improved power control and secondary gear ratio was lowered, together with 5mm increase in the wheelbase, all combining for better sports riding on highways. The brake master cylinder controlled the 4 piston brake calipers featured four-way adjustability. The SACS acronym decal, located on the lower body work of the blue/white models, changed from a diagonal lettering to a straight lettering.

FS: 2014 Honda CTX700N – JH2RC6809EK000068 – only 3,485 miles – $3899.00

This bike is like new condition, one local owner, dealer maintained and in excellent shape!  Customer added Honda hard case luggage, Honda rear rack, Honda center stand kit out of Europe, windshield and Oxford heated grips.  It is set up and ready to go see the sights, and it is so easy to ride this bike!  6 speed, not the automatic, no flaws, no stories to tell.

Here is what the press had to say about this bike:

If you’re an experienced motorcycle enthusiast, you’ve probably pigeonholed these new Honda CTXs as just beginner’s bikes and are about turn the page. Not so fast. That’s what any number of us old-timers thought when the NC700X/DCT was introduced, too. After testing it thoroughly (Rider, November 2012), we found the NC to be a surprisingly versatile mid-sized adventure bike at a bargain price. Now we have its street-only counterparts in the naked CTX700N and fairing-equipped CTX700, the first of what Honda says will be a series of CTX machines, and calling them just entry-level bikes is an oversimplification as well. They share the NC700X’s efficient liquid-cooled, 670cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, chassis and running gear.

The idea behind the CTXs is to introduce new riders to motorcycling and bring back former ones, who these days care more about comfort, fuel efficiency and fun than maximum power. They’re also meant to appeal to experienced riders who are seeking some practical everyday transportation for themselves or a mate. At just 28.3 inches, their seats are accessibly low and their cruiserish forward-mounted footpegs and high, wide beach-style handlebars have a relaxed feel. Canting the engine forward 62 degrees helps give them a low center of gravity for better handling, and the available DCT eliminates the potential showstopper of having to shift gears for a new rider, who may never have even done so in a car. Toss in nimble handling, great brakes and low weight, and you have a blend of cruiser and sporty handling that’s all about Comfort, Technology and the riding eXperience—CTX.

Rolling from stoplight-to-stoplight or down the highway, the staggered, counterbalanced power pulses of the engine give it a nice loping feel without excessive vibration, and it makes more-than-adequate power for a solo rider. Add a heavy load or two good-sized riders and brisk passes do require some forethought and a downshift or two. Overall, if you’re not in a huge hurry, for touring solo or slicing through city traffic the CTX is certainly up to the task. And our test bike with manual transmission delivered 61.5 mpg average, very close to Honda’s claim of 64 mpg.

The Balance Only A Honda Can Achieve…

If ever there was a perfect balance between man and machine, it has to be this. Just a thought, and it changes direction. Another thought, and it launches you into the next turn. Think again and it slows, and just about finds the next apex itself.

Honda’s incredible CBR600RR is the machine of champions, of course. But it’s much more than that. It’s a stellar streetbike, maybe the best ever built. Because it’s just as happy to take you to class, to your job or on a weekend ride as it is to carve a corner at Laguna Seca or Road Atlanta. That balance between performance and handling continues all throughout this machine: engine, chassis, suspension, brakes. And speaking of brakes, you can opt for a special version with Honda’s revolutionary Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS), the first ever on a production Supersport motorcycle.

This cool looking Monster started as an S version and has had a few upgrades along its life.  “Dark” bodywork was installed at some point along with some cool mods listed below.   We just ran the Monster through SUB service and everything looks in great condition.  It is definitely ready to go ride and enjoy!

Here is what was shared with us, most mods were performed in 2006 with just about 5200 miles on it.

  • Wider 5.5″ rear wheel upgrade
  • Remus Carbon pipes
  • Opened airbox
  • K&N Filter installed
  • Custom billet belt covers installed
  • Shift Tech carbon rear fender and side covers installed
  • Rizoma Mirrors, handlebars and grips installed
  • New “desmo” reservoir covers
  • Yoyodyne clutch slave
  • SpeedyMoto frame sliders
  • Sargents seat
  • Headlight and brake light modulators

Last year work performed

  • New chain and sprockets
  • New Tires
  • New Battery
  • 12K service performed in Portland

Here is a bit from an article back then:
“So why is it when you get on a Monster someone throws a switch and turns you into a complete nutter! Maybe it’s me but all you want to do is use the midrange of this bike to its utmost. It wheelies off the throttle, it powers out of corners and roundabouts with total composure, it has good ground clearance (which I just tested!) and is comfortable to ride all day. At speed it’s still surprisingly easy to ride and fairly easy on the arms, with just a flyscreen and wide bars you would think it would be a strain but to my surprise it was fine even at 120+.

The new motor in this version is a real gem and can be revved right through the range and the 6 speed box up to about 125mph or so in very quick time, but this misses the point with this bike, it’s all about the mid-range on the Monster 800. Ducati have made a lot of modifications to the new Monster including upping the capacity to 803cc, a lighter clutch and alloy cage, a new gearbox and a totally smooth injection system. With power output now at around 74bhp (more than the original 900) and a whole lot of torque, you can have a lot of fun on this bike. Riding the Monster is fun, real fun! It is really easy in traffic and yet will blast up to 3 figures plus in seconds, the most fun is definitely in the middle figures though. I found myself riding most of the time on back roads at around 70- 90mph and just enjoying the feel of this brilliant bike. It has a distinct feel to it unlike no other bike on the market, something that resembles riding a supermoto but with the added performance package thrown in. It’s difficult to describe but you find yourself suddenly opening the throttle at every opportunity just to feel the front lift and the rush of torque! It really is motorcycling in its element.

Add a good suspension set up to a brilliant motor and the Monster 800 shines. The front end has 43mm inverted forks (unfortunately not adjustable) and the rear has a Sachs unit with pre-load and rebound damping. With this set up you would think that it would have its restrictions, but it seems to do the job extremely well and it really does take a lot to unsettle or make the bike misbehave in any way. The new Monsters also have the trellis frame and box-section swing arm from the S4. Advertise with us For details of how to reach over 1/4 Million readers per month – click here The handling of this new Monster is pin sharp, and with a low centre of gravity adds to the overall feel in traffic and out on the open road. At low speeds you really have no problem filtering, the smoothness of the bike combined with the low seating position and wide flat bars place no strain on your wrists. And when you get out on the open road you can really exploit the potential of the new Monster. Braking comes courtesy of Brembo. Twin 320mm discs with ‘Gold series’ 4 piston calipers up front, and a rear of 245mm from the same stable ensures very rapid stopping power if things suddenly go wrong up ahead! and there’s plenty of feel from the brake set up which just adds to the riding pleasure with this bike”.

This great running WR250R is considered to be, one of the best dual sport bikes in the market!  This is a 2 owner local bike that has the majority of it miles from commuting with the occasional gentle off road.exploration.  It has had routine service performed by its previous owner but we did not receive any notes. It starts up with no hesitation and looking it all over it is definitely ready to go ride!   It has a few upgrades like Oxford heated grips, nice Zeta handgaurds, Big rack on the back, Seat Concepts lower seat and a other bits and pieces.

 

Here’s what the press said about this model;

RideApart Review: Yamaha WR250R

The Yamaha WR250R now competes in the suddenly popular dual sport segment. It’s smaller than the DR-Z400S, much more expensive than the CRF250L and much higher spec than the KLX250S.

What’s New:

In an age of 600lbs, 1,200cc adventure tourers wearing knobby tires, it’s easy to forget that dirt bikes don’t need to be big, heavy and expensive. This is the little Yamaha that could. Sharing an aluminum twin-spar chassis and fully-adjustable suspension with the dirt-only WR250F, don’t let the 250cc capacity confuse you — the Yamaha WR250R is a fast motorcycle on-road and off.

READ MORE: How To: Dual Sport Eleven Essentials

Seriously, we had an absolute blast running around LA freeway traffic on these, out-dragging confused Harley riders and taking advantage of the high seats, wide bars and 298lbs weight to carve through stationary traffic. The WR was even happy cruising at 90+ mph in the fast lane for extended periods.

Off-road, it’s a real dirt bike. It’ll jump, it’ll land, it’ll ford rivers and cover your buddies in mud.

What’s Good:

The WR is pricey because you get a lot for your money. Fuel injection, wavy brake discs front and rear, fully adjustable suspension, nice components everywhere you look. This is not a budget motorcycle. It’s also a Yamaha. Which means it’s going to start on the first push of the button every single time and won’t need its engine ripped apart every 40 hours.

Unlike larger single-cylinder engines, the WR’s doesn’t make your hands numb with vibration, even while cruising at 85mph. The skinny dirt bike seat looks uncomfortable, but it’s got just the right amount of support for hours of comfort.

We didn’t try, but others report seeing top speeds of 90mph +. That from a little 28bhp, 18lb/ft four-stroke 250 single. It gets there quickly too. There’s not much bottom end, but it likes to rev. Max power arrives at 10,000rpm.

Those fancy 46mm, fully adjustable KYB forks and fully adjustable (with ride height) Soqi shock deliver 10.6 inches of travel front and rear. That’s only slightly less than the dirt-only WR250F. Because it’s revy and because the clutch is so linear and predicable, the engine is exceptionally easy to use off-road. Instead of surging ahead with the faintest twist of the throttle, you instead need to work the clutch to negotiate low-speed obstacles and work the gears when things get faster.

One of the main gripes about the WR250R is that the dual sport weighs 278lbs, 44lbs more than the dirt-only WR250F. The thing is, you don’t feel it. Everything about the R feels welter weight from pushing it around, lifting it up, balancing at very low speeds or whatever. Seriously, if you didn’t know and someone told you the weight, you’d assume they were lying.

Going back to the “this is not a budget bike” thing. It looks like the real deal because it is. The engine looks modern, the suspension is flashy, the tapered aluminum swingarm looks like it belongs on a race bike. Get it muddy and pull this up in front a bar and people will think you just rode in from Baja.

The WR250R offers the best of worlds, a light and nimble aluminum frame, a powerful liquid engine with titanium valves, and long travel suspension for off-road adventures and all the equipment to make your on-road travels just as much fun. Add in high-end components and you have one of the most advanced 250 cc dual purpose bikes on the market.

This hard to find Artic White Panigale 1199S has only had one local owner.  This Superbike has had all of its maintenance and services performed by our friends at South Sound Motorcycles in Fife.  It was purchased new in 07/2013 at MotoCorsa in Portland.  Customer was on his way to Laguna, needed some luggage for his 1098, MotoCorsa happened to have a brand new white 1199S with tank bag and tail bag in place.  That was enough to prompt an on the spot trade up!   This 1199S comes with the bags that were used once, it also has a nice set of CRG brake and clutch levers along with grippier driver pegs..  No damage anywhere to be found, other than small mark on windshield where it looks like something got dripped, very minor.  All services up to date with all records provided, two keys included..

 

Here is what the press said about this year model:

The Ducati 1199 Panigale is one of the sportiest models built by the company. For the starters it comes with a sharp design which betrays its racer spirit. Power comes from a strong Superquadro 1198 cc engine with the cylinders angled at a 90 degree angle. The unit delivers a maximum output of 195 hp @ 10,750 rpm and 132 Nm of torque @ 9,000 rpm.   The 1199 Panigale’s chassis features a monocoque structure which uses the Superquadro engine as a structural element reducing the bike’s total weight by 5 kg. The monocoque frame is fixed directly to the cylinder head, and at front are two aluminum bushings inserted with the steering tube bearings.

On-track. Assertive design enhanced by full LED headlights, front carbon fiber mudguard, Marchesini machine-finished wheels, electronically-controlled suspension and adjustable Öhlins steering damper. With this race set-up, the 1199 Panigale S is immediately ready to hit the track and take on the stopwatch.

The Beauty of Performance –  With supreme performance, superlative technology and magnetic design, the 1199 Panigale is the unrivalled protagonist on the road and on the track.

This incredible classic Honda CBX has had the same owner for the last 20 years!  It has been well kept, no signs of tip over damage of any sort although it is a 35 year old motorcycle and does have some patina here and there.  It just went through SUB service department where it had all its bodywork and exhaust removed and cleaned, carbs were then removed and rebuilt, all fluids flushed, new tires and made ready for its next adventure.  It comes with the factory suitcases installed and they too are in great shape!  Currently has a tall windshield option in place but it comes with all the original pieces.  If you have never heard one of these run or seen one in person, this is worth the trip to SUB to check it out.

Oh that sweet sound!

A bit about the CBX:

“The CBX announces itself as an exotic – elegant restraint atop an audacious self-confidence that jumps up and down, I’m a six!”
By Phil Schilling

http://www.cbxclub.com/davespage/cyc82-1.html (article)

Honda had produced a Honda RC series six-cylinder race bike in the mid-1960s, but the CBX was Honda’s first production 6 cylinder road bike. The CBX’s advanced DOHC 24-valve inline six-cylinder engine was its outstanding feature; but in other respects the bike was conventional, having telescopic forks, a tubular frame, twin rear shocks and straight handlebars

Although bulky, the engine was wide only at the top. The width across the crankshaft was relatively narrow as the CBX had a stacked engine accessory arrangement, whereby the alternator and ignition items were positioned behind the cylinder block. This arrangement produced an acceptable engine width low down and moved critical items out of harm’s way in the event of grounding.

Journalist L. J. K. Setright wrote of the CBX’s width: “Don’t tell me that its engine is too wide: It is no wider than the legs of a rider, so it adds nothing to the frontal area, and personally I would rather have my legs shielded by a cylinder apiece than exposed to every blow

Sport touring model

In 1981, Honda repositioned the CBX into the sport touring category with the CBX-B, detuning the engine and adding Pro-Link monoshock rear suspension, air-adjustable 39 mm front forks, a fairing and panniers with a stronger frame to support these additions. The CBX was given beefier dual ventilated front brake discs to help bring to a stop the bike’s increased weight. The 1982 model CBX-C model differed little from the 1981 model, having only some changes to paint and trim.

This very green Ninja 250 is a one owner bike, customer purchased new in Kentucky and then moved out West in 2015, since then its only had 280 miles put on it.  Time to find a new home.   No tip over damage at all, never dropped.  There is a rub mark on left side of fairing as shown in pictures, thank you moving company!   Other than that, its is perfect condition.  Comes with only one key, customer looking for spare, any paperwork and the owners manual.  We just ran it through our service department to make sure it is ready to ride and enjoy!  These are great first sportbikes, light weight, super easy to handle.  This one will most likely sell quick.

Here is what the magazines had to say about this model;

With a smooth power delivery, a low seat height, and upstanding handling characteristics, the Kawasaki Ninja 250R has everything you’re looking for in a sports bike. It’s not going to wow with anything out-of-this-world, but that’s not what the Ninja 250R is all about.

It’s actually a versatile sports bike that appeals to both novice riders and the more seasoned variety. Aerodynamically speaking, the Ninja 250R is wrapped in a modern aerodynamic fairing and windscreen that not only look great, but also deliver effective wind deflection for a wide range of riding situations. The bike also has an easy-to-read instrument panel with a fuel gauge and neutral indicator, as well as a natural riding position, comfortable ergonomics, and a set of full-size 17″ sport bike wheels, all of which make the Ninja 250R a nimble and lightweight sports bike that’s designed to deliver pure pleasure on city streets.

In terms of performance, the Ninja 250R is powered by a compact, 249cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine, that produces crisp throttle power seasoned riders will definitely appreciate. The bike’s extra highway passing power compared to other bikes in the 250 class is unparalleled whereas beginners will love the smooth torque delivery at lower speeds. The engine is mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed transmission that offers the right gear for almost any situation. Together, the efficient engine and transmission allow the Ninja 250R plenty of enjoyment from a wide array of customers.

Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned veteran, the Kawasaki 250R will offer you everything you need in a versatile machine.

FS: 2006 Suzuki DR-Z400S – 12,078 mi – JS1SK43A762101350 – $3,099.00

This DRZ was a locally owned and ridden bike, purchased new at Aurora Suzuki. Second owner put less than 100 miles on it as it was a bit too tall for her.  It appears to have been primarily ridden on pavement, some fire roads, it is equipped with Avon street tires currently .  It is also has a larger Acerbis larger fuel tank (3.7gal), a large rear rack and Acerbis hand guards.   Also included is the original metal gas tank, a factory service manual and a couple of oil filters.  Just ran through our SUB moto service,  full carb rebuild, oil change and new battery, bike had been parked for a few years.  Runs fantastic now!

Here’s what the press said about it back in 2006

“Brilliantly competent dual-purpose motorcycle that’s as happy pottering through the gridlock as it is bouncing over a curb. The DR-Z400S is tough, durable, simple to service and spares are cheap and plentiful.  The DR-Z400S looks like an off-road machine, and it is – with all the unmatched performance capabilities you’d expect from a Suzuki. But look a little more carefully and you’ll see you get a bonus: it’s 100-percent street legal. The DR-Z400’s exceptional off-road performance should come as no surprise. After all, it uses the same advanced suspension as the renowned DR-Z400E. It also has a lightweight, compact design that helps it offer crisp handling everywhere from tight, technical trails to wide-open fire roads. Off-road or on the street, the DR-Z400S provides strong torque across the powerband and amazing throttle response. And it features remarkably smooth performance, complemented by conveniences such as electric starting and a compact, easy-to-read instrument cluster. On the trail or cross town, you can’t beat the 2007 Suzuki DR-Z400S”.

FS: 1999 Ducati 748 Biposto – 11,946 mi – ZDM1SB3R1XB011001 – $8,300.00

The original owner worked in the industry at a local Ducati shop and purchased the 748 new. He performed most of the mods himself with the help of a few Ducati experts. The second owner purchased in 2001 and continued the build out with the guidance of the original owner. Together 15 years ago, they performed a frame up build at 7,600 miles. We are led to believe the 855cc motor that was built by Mark Sutton (DucShop), but we have not found written verification. This 748 also received a full 52mm arrow exhaust and lots of tasteful upgrades, check out the build history below.

Totally un damaged, no sloppy workmanship anywhere to be found on this super clean timeless Ducati Superbike. . The 2nd owner sold the bike in August of 2008 with 10,192 miles on the clock. Current owner titled it and put approximately 1700 miles on it his first year, tabs expired, maintenance became due, life changes happened and bike was parked in his climate controlled storage since 2009. This gorgeous 748 will come with owner’s manual, build and service records, some original parts, and 1 key.

It seems that the more we stare at this beautiful 748 Superbike the more upgrades we spot! On top of the obvious ones listed and spotted like Ohlins rear, 5 Spoke Marchesini wheels and full Arrow exhaust, we also see…

998 Brembo Snowflake Front Brake Rotors
Evoluzione clutch slave
Euro headlight switch
Upgrade rear suspension strut
Nice high gloss quality carbon bits
That real not “painted” magnesium inner clutch housing is so rare it’s not even funny!

For those who are not familiar with the 748 lineage, this is the first gen 748. This really was the true little blood brother to the iconic 916 in every sense other than displacement and rear tire size. It retained all the technical features of the Tamburini designed 916 like adjustable steering head angle, dzus fasteners to easily remove the fairings, quick disconnect lines on the tank. In 2000 Ducati introduced 2 new models the 748S which stood for Sport and the 748E which stood for Economia. The S was a continued copy of the beloved 748/916 series with the addition of 5 spoke wheels and TiN coated front fork tubes. The E retained the 3 spoke wheels and gave up the coolest features like dzus fasteners and easy disconnect fuel lines. No more adjustable steering head angle option either. Great price point but lost some luster IMO. This 1999 version is the real deal, only change from the first introduction in 1997 is the Ducati logo and font.

Here is what the press think about this bike:

Ducati Scrambler – The Land of Joy

Ducati Scrambler is not just a new motorcycle but rather a new brand, a new approach to the motorcycling world that offers not only performance and technology but also freedom of expression, fun and sharing of positive emotion. Ducati Scrambler is a new brand, offering a whole new world made up of bikes, accessories and apparel that provide the last word in self-expression. Anti-conformist, accessible and essential, the Ducati Scrambler is a perfect mix of tradition and modernity, a step towards the pure essence of motorcycling: two wheels, wide handlebars, a straightforward engine and endless fun. The Scrambler world – the latest addition to the Ducati universe – is one of authentic creativity and free expression; the lead-up to its official arrival has generated an unprecedented buzz, as has a captivating launch campaign of outstanding originality.

This is more than just a new bike: it’s a whole new world, one that expresses itself via a range of versions that provide a starting point for satisfying the different needs and wants of individual motorcyclists. “Post-heritage” design gives a contemporary take on the iconic bike built by Ducati back in the 70s. This Ducati Scrambler, though, is not a retro bike: it is, rather, intended to be just how the legendary motorcycle would be today if Ducati had never stopped building it.

FS: 2006 Honda Shadow VLX Deluxe - only 4,432 miles - $3,199.00

FS: 2006 Honda Shadow VLX Deluxe – JH2PC214X6M701382 – only 4,432 miles – $3,199.00

The VLX was produced by Honda for 20 years!  It is a reliable and very popular bike for Honda over the years.  This one was parked for the past 4 years and came in to us to make run again.   Owner decided it was really time to let someone else get some use out of it and hopefully ride it!  Our service department went through and got it ready to go.  New battery, full carburetor and fuel system cleaning, new Pirelli tires and a new battery.  The bike comes with a set of leather saddlebags, windshield and a cycle cover.   There are a few dings in the gas tank but it does not appear to have crashed just maybe bumped or tipped over in the garage.   It is ready for upcoming Spring adventures!

Here is what the press say about this model:

The VLX is powered by a 583cc V-twin engine. This is the sweet spot in engine size that allows you to easily learn how to ride without doing wheelies or burnouts on accident. This bike was also heavily inspired by Harley Davidson engines, right down to the semi single pin crank. That means around town you will have a great sounding motorcycle that puts out an aggressive exhaust note without being overly loud. Even stock this bike sounds great.

The Shadow VLX would make an ideal bike for someone who thinks a Honda Rebel 250ccbike might be a bit too small for them, but they don’t want a bike that is over 650cc’s. It’s also a great bike if you want something inexpensive that will last you a while. Sure you can always sell your first bike a year after you get it, but this Shadow would easily last many years into your riding career if you so desired.   The bike comes in at 439 lbs which isn’t the lightest bike out there, but sometimes that weight will help with stability when you are on the freeway. The seat height on this little monster is also quite short. 27.2 inches which is awesome for shorter riders.

That short seat will also help you flat foot the bike if you are average height to help manage the weight. If you are shorter than 5’6” it can make riding a sportbike a little awkward without modifications, but you would feel right at home on this Honda Shadow.

Conclusion:

This is an absolutely badass motorcycle that you will love if you are a fan of cruisers. Really the only thing that makes it less than ideal is that 4 speed transmission. If it had one more gear it would make riding on the freeway a bit easier.
