I am specifically looking at purchasing a 2011 or newer Aero. Test rode 2 weeks ago and it just fits right and I feel comfortable. My question might seem elementary, but, I have noticed while searching on craigslist and cycletrader that the Aero's have different model numbers (VT750, VT750C, VT750CE, etc). Could you please enlighten me as to what the differences are?

Very interesting info. through Wikipedia but it seems I am still having trouble finding out the difference between the numbers after the model name. Just thought I'd throw this question out there instead of calling a dealer. Had enough of dealers never calling me back or giving me incorrect info. Plus I am sure many seasoned Honda owners here on the forum would know more than them...hehe!

Years ago I had a Shadow 700, and later an 1100. After riding a maxi-scooter for a few years after knee replacement surgery I wanted to get back to a "real" motorcycle, and the Honda Aero 750 was my first consideration. But when I rode it I was totally disappointed. It was so underpowered and heavy feeling that I knew that other than city street cruising I would quickly get frustrated with it. A HD Sportser could probably out accelerate this bike. After looking at other mid-sized cruisers I ended up trying a Triumph America and was so impressed I bought one that very day. The 865cc engine on the America is enormously more satisfying than Honda's 750 v-twin.

For what it is worth, after two years of riding the America I again felt that I wanted more oomph in my daily ride so I traded up to a 1600cc Triumph Thunderbird and have been very, very happy with this great bike.
