  • Great cruiser for the price

    Aug 2, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light for a cruiser, great cornering clearance, well balanced, comfortable seat, zero vibration
    Cons: Carbureted

    Summary: The Shadow Sabre is a great cruiser. It’s got as much pep as you can get without jumping up to one of the huge displacement bikes, ala the VTX or Vulcan 2000, or going to the sportier, and twice as expensive, Harley V-Rod. It also has a comfortable ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Styling and looks, comfort, dependability, roll-on performance, handling, value for the money.
    Cons: Factory seat is uncomfortable and must be replaced. Oil change is $60 bucks.

    Summary: What can I say.... After nearly a year of extremely happy ownership and 4500 miles, I can truly say that I own Nirvana on wheels. I was a regular rider many years ago, but have been without a motorcycle for almost 20 years... Until last December. I am ... read more

  • On the Road Again! In Style.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful appearance, smooth and powerful. Comfortable for long rides.
    Cons: I would like a tighter turning radius for slow maneuvering.

    Summary: It has been 20 years since my last ride, so I have had all that time to research what would work best for me. It was always Honda versus Harley. Honda vs. Harley. Sorry, Yamama and Kawastocky, you just are not in this class. The deeper I would dig ... read more

    Jul 17, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great value, looks, and power.
    Cons: No storage space, kick start, center stand.

    Summary: I purchased this bike new in April, 2004. One of the first things I noticed about this bike was its beautiful appearance. The ghost black flame was a wonderful touch for stock, and it has plenty of chrome right off the floor. The craftsmanship of this ... read more

    Pros: Great ergos. Nice power band. Chrome
    Cons: back seat for 2 up to small. Indicators in poor spot Some welds have splatter.

    Summary: I recently purchased my Sabre and i have to say i love it. It is a great bike for the price and it is very relaxing to ride long distance. The only gripes I have are, the grips and control housings should of been chrome, the back seat is not comfortable ... read more

    Pros: Powerful, Smooth, Great looks, Perfectly balanced, Honda reliable, Very Low Maintenance
    Cons: Saddle does get uncomfortable on long rides

    Summary: (Bear in mind when reading this that I purchased the bike in June of 2002 with 7/10 of a mile on it and since then I've racked up well over 4600 miles on it between then and October 2002. This includes long rides on sunny days and rides home from work in ... read more

    Jun 6, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Very quick. Awesome looks. Good value.
    Cons: It's a Honda. Cold blooded.

    Summary: I am not a Honda fan. No good reason, except the only Honda car we owned when I was a kid was a total piece. I have hated them ever since. I decided (was allowed by my wife) to purchase a ride after not owning one in 10 years. After ... read more

    Pros: Retro styling,head turner, turn-key custom rod
    Cons: I haven't found any

    Summary: I have owned my 2002 Shadow Sabre for since July 01 and have put on a respectable 1300 miles on since purchasing it. I looked at several other bikes including Harley and I could just not justify spending the money for a Harley. Come on, we are talking ... read more

    Pros: Killer styling, smooth, confident handling, powerful, low maintenance.
    Cons: Saddle "might" get uncomfortable during long trips. A litle cold blooded.

    Summary: After owning several cruiser and sport bikes, I've finally found a bike that fulfills my every desire. What a perfect balance of good looks, power and handling along with the reliability that Honda is known for. Honda decided to offer 3 new "flame" color ... read more

    Pros: Has great roll on power and feels bigger than an 1100. Great for two up.
    Cons: Carburated. Is no longer in production, could use better brakes.

    Summary: Last year, I purchased a 2002 Sabre and I was surprised on how well it performs. I am a big Kawasaki fan and I had to really think about going with a Honda. It might not be as fast from 0 to 60 as a VN 750, but when I ride the highaway I feel safer. ... read more

    Pros: Handling is outstanding for a bike in the crusier class. At Home on any road.
    Cons: Stock Seat, get a quality seat for your Sabre

    Summary: I purchased this bike in June of 2002, I'm writing this review in May 2004. The bike now has 16,200 miles on it. Not one single mechanical problem to mention. The Sabre is the Hot Rod of Shadows and the performance is respectable. This bike will not only ... read more

    Pros: Cool retro styling, reliable, and easy to maintain
    Cons: saddle is hard on the rump, little aftermarket performance support

    Summary: Well, I lucked out. I didn't really do very much research before getting this bike. Based on looks, it was between the Honda and a V-Star 1100... and I chose the Honda based on name. Now that I am wiser to the ways of these bikes I know how much I did ... read more
