The American Classic Edition 750 is a special-edition Honda Shadow motorcycle introduced in 1995 and offered until 2003. Its slightly modified engine, louder exhaust, and retro-styled exterior help differentiate it from the rest of Honda's Shadow motorcycle models and it was targeted at consumers who were looking for a Harley-Davidson alternative. Unique to this model, the American Classic Edition is manufactured by Honda entirely in the United States.
Powering the A.C.E. is a 745 cc two-cylinder V-twin engine capable of taking riders up to a top speed of 120 mph. The engine generates 75 hp and 48 foot-pounds of torque. It's able to achieve an average fuel consumption of 45 mpg. It's also equipped with three valves per cylinder and twin spark plugs for fuel injection. The bike's engine is mated to a wide-ratio five-speed manual transmission.
Suspension and Braking
At the front of the bike is a 41 mm front fork allowing for 140 mm of overall travel. The rear suspension is made up of five-way adjustable dual shocks with a maximum travel of 90 mm. Stopping power is provided by a front 296-mm single disc brake with a mechanical drum brake at the rear. Factory equipped tires are sized 120/90/17 at the front and 170/80/15 at the rear.
Styling and Features
As a competitor to the Harley-Davidson style cruiser motorcycles, the American Classic Edition features full front and rear fenders, chrome trim and a low seat height of 27.6 inches. To further contribute to the cruiser style, it also features chrome dual staggered exhaust pipes, a chrome-covered gas tank and chromed shock covers.
