Meet the opposite of pretentious, diamond-encrusted, gold-plated, look-at-me bling: Honda's Shadow Phantom. Here's a bike for riders who know that sometimes a whisper is a whole lot louder than a shout. That when you're confident, you don't have to peacock around in a costume.
With its spoked wheels on black rims, tough front fork, bobbed fenders, and matte black accents, the Phantom makes a powerful statement. But make no mistake, the 745cc V-twin (also blacked-out) and throaty exhaust always makes a big entrance.
The Phantom has a slightly upright seating position so it's equally comfortable cruising the boulevard or taking weekend trips. And it all comes with a price tag that will keep you in the black, too.
2-into-2 Exhaust System: Sleek pipes feature bullet-style mufflers for that classic cruiser style of yesteryear. Large-diameter head pipes and 2-into-2 system design combine to put out true, V-twin cruiser sound.
Shaft Final Drive: Clean, efficient, proven, low-maintenance. Shaft final drive is the perfect choice for a machine like this, and for riders who pile on the miles. You never have to worry about lubrication or adjustment out on the road. And an added plus: it helps keep your bike cleaner, too.
Three-Valve Dual-Plug Combustion Chamber: It's the best of both worlds: The three-valve combustion chambers used on many of our V-twin cruisers feature two intake valves and one exhaust, helping them breathe efficiently to boost both horsepower and torque.
V-Twin Engine: Nothing pumps out the torque like a big V-twin. The Phantom's power makes it perfect for both around-town cruising, commutes and casual weekend-long rides.
Low Seat Height: Skimming the pavement at just 25.8 inches, the Phantom's low seat height makes flat-footing it at stoplights or in parking lots a breeze. And the Phantom's narrow seat/tank junction makes it feel even lower.
Front-Disc Brake: If there's one place you don't want retro performance, it's your brakes. That's why we gave the Shadow Phantom a 296mm front disc for distinctly modern stopping power.
Stylish Finish: Bobber-inspired styling with extensive blacked-out and matte finishes.
Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI): Forget about fiddling with a choke—the Shadow's fuel injection system means no-hassle startups on cold mornings or at high altitudes, and optimal performance in any condition.
Gunfighter Saddle: Sleek, one-piece gunfighter-type seat is comfortable and looks great too.
Spoked Wheels: Spoked black wheels and hubs feature a 120/90-17 front tire and 160/80-15 rear tire to complete the overall custom look.
Five-Speed Transmission: Wide-ratio five-speed transmission lets you cruise the boulevard at a low, unhurried pace, yet allows you hop on the highway without revving the engine through the roof.
Shorty Front Fender: Minimalist front fender gives the Shadow Phantom a lighter, cleaner, more progressive look.
