Thinking about trading in my 07 Shadow Aero 750 for a brand new 750 any thoughts...
AWESOME. You get to start over with a clean slate and the difference in price between an old ugly used one and a new one is pennys over the life of the bike. AND I love fuel injection.Thinking about trading in my 07 Shadow Aero 750 for a brand new 750 any thoughts...
Good question, but I think Honda is pretty solid.??????????????????????????? The company or just the model?
I don't get it either. My 1600 Vulcan Nomad was FI, had to use 90 octane or greater, and only get 35 mpg. at best. The Valk carbed, 34 to 41 mpg. and 36 being about the norm. FI is BS to me but I have 6 carb FI.I don't get this whole "carb'd bike is bad, FI is good" argument quite honestly. As long as you ride your bike, avoid ethanol fuel (if possible) or use an additive, and it's not a garage queen, carb'd bikes just take a little extra loving is all.
OP if I were you, I'd look at maybe moving up a size so it will be a real upgrade for you and not just a lateral move but with fuel injection. Maybe look at the Boulevard C90/M90 series or perhaps a VTX 1300. Those are everywhere and cheap with just a few thousand miles on them. I certainly wouldn't buy a Shadow brand new. In fact, I'm not sure I'd buy any bike brand new honestly. There's just so many good used bikes out there. I want them all!
