That RS is a nice looking bike, extra sharp in the red, white, and blue.

sweet!

That paint job and a bit more horsepressure, before July 4th, with a patriotic name. Bet it'd sell.

Never liked their cruisers precisely due to the lack of power , but like someone said, if it had stones enough to lighten the front coming out of a turn, it'd be a blast!

this riding position is nice and seeing a red, white, and blue one on the road like this one recently, it looked really nice!!

It was a decent little bike, but I like my CB500x much better.
Wow, that was a bit of a down-grade. Too bad.

I'm sure the Shadows do better than 32HP?? ... Suzuki's LS650 does 28-30HP; I've owned both and even with the extra bulk, the Shadow seems like it has more grunt & top end than the Savage/S40 ...

Why do you like the CB500X better ?......eventhough it has shimmed valves and the Shadow has screw type valve adjustments . TIA

Chain vs shaft drive makes a significant difference in wheel hp too. And you can fiddle with sprocket ratios on the chain whereas shaft leaves you with what you got.

Those numbers are for a spirit 2007 to presant. They ALL had shaft drive.
