Default Newbie: Difference between the ACE & AREO

Greetings!

I am all too new to this. I bought myself a 2004 Honda Shadow Aero VT750C.

My questions are:

1. Whats the difference between the Aero and the A.C.E.

2. What does the C & C2 mean at the end of VT750C or VT750C2?

Bare with me. I am new. =)

The C and C2 are part of the model designations.

For differences, start here.

Well, your Aero is a 750.

Mines shaft drive. Isnt yours chain ?

The VT750C2 is the 07 Spirit .... there is no 750 Aero or Ace C2 ... There is a Sabre 1100 C2 but the 1100 Spirit is not a C2 ... confused yet

They also made a 750 ACE.

The AERO I believe took the place of the ACE and was restyled to be more retro looking ( mainly in the fenders ). They also went with shaft drive for the AERO and abandoned the chain drive that was found on the 750 ACE.

The AERO is a different handling bike then the AERO as the AERO was redesigned to give it a lower center of gravity and stance. The AERO is an awesome handling bike.

We owned both at the same time and I rode them both. I always felt the AERO handled a touch better and I could lean more in turns.

Engines are the same, the standard Honda carb fueled 750.

VT = check!
750= check!
C=check (I didnt know that but makes sense).

The only reason I ask about the 2 is because on my service manual it states that it is for "VT750C/C2" and right under that, it says "Shadow Aero"

My Aero is defiantly shaft drive. I don't think they have a chain version of the Aero anymore.

The handle bars I have on my bike make this amazing handling bike even better. Quick low speed turns and very little movement for and high speed counter steering.


Thank you all for the posts. But please if someone knows what the C2 is all about (and how I know if I have one or not, lol), please let me know.
