The Honda Shadow Phantom is certainly the best Shadow in Honda’s lineup. The basic Shadow was already a tasty looking motorcycle, but the Phantom comes with a series of design improvements which make it truly stunning.
We especially like the blacked-out 745cc V-twin engine and black rims sporting matte silver highlights. Not to mention about the dual exhaust pipes that not only look great but also sound similarly great.
Needless to say that the motorcycle was designed with comfort in mind, so the low seat height, the lean back handlebar and the perfectly placed foot rests are working together to reward you with a relaxed riding position.
The ride is kept in check by a 41mm fork (4.6 inches travel) paired with rear dual shocks with five-position spring-preload adjustability (3.5 inches travel).

It is said that “classic never gets old” and this quote is absolutely true when it comes to motorcycles. Thereby, Honda is looking many times back to the past when it starts to design a new motorcycle and the end result is almost every time a small work of art.
The same thing is true for the Honda Shadow Aero, which is a classic cruiser that offers a perfect combination between the old school style and the modern design trends. The most notable design cues are the spoked wheels, full fenders and the long, chromed mufflers. We also like the “lean back” handlebars and the shiny case of the headlight.
When it comes to power, the Honda Shadow Aero is equipped with a 745cc V-twin, 52 degrees V-twin engine specially tuned for low-revving torque. The engine’s power is kept in leash by a wide-ratio five-speed transmission that is perfectly suited for both low and high speeds.

Honda boasts of an impressive line-up of Shadow 750 bikes, none more so than the Shadow Aero 750 . The retro styled cruiser offers the most satisfying ride for a wide range of enthusiasts, as well as a classic design with a power-packed V-twin engine that’s just right for today’s budget-minded consumer.
As one of the most popular cruisers on the road, the Shadow Aero 750 features a classic, retro style design that underlies the true power inside it. For the 2012 model, the Shadow Aero 750 comes with plenty of chrome details, including the lightbar, the windscreen, the spotlight visors, the back rests, and the fenders, among other things. On top of that, the bike features leather saddlebags for easy-to-store baggage space, as well as a leather front pouch for extra storage. Mixed in with the classic design of the bag are modern elements like the new digital audio system and a digital auto attachment kit.
In terms of performance, the Shadow Aero 750 is powered by a 745cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin engine that spews out tremendous amounts of power at all ranges and mated to a wide-ratio five-speed transmission. The engine features a pair of connecting rods that have been bolted to the same crankpin, delivering the kind of rumbling cadence and torque that so many riders especially seek out on their bikes.
In line with the company’s goal of making the new Shadow Spirit 750 look longer and lower like a larger-displacement machine, without sacrificing the friendly ergonomics of the bike, Honda used a single-backbone frame that produces a longer wheelbase while simultaneously stretching the ergonomic dynamics of the bike to accommodate riders of all shapes and sizes.
In a market that offers plenty of unique choices, the Shadow Aero 750 is one bike that’s going to make your choice easier.

Honda’s Shadow line of cruisers was kind of falling behind the competition both in terms of performance and looks, so urgent measures were required to refresh the famous name and even add more salt and pepper to it. The solution comes with the all new 2010 Honda VT750C2A Shadow Phantom, a veritable midnight cruiser that not only brings a fresh new style next to Honda’s Shadow Aero and Shadow Spirit 750 , but plenty more torque for very little money.
This video doesn’t look bad at all for a 25-year-old commercial. It’s for the Honda Shadow 1100, but the style is definitely Harley-Davidson. The accent is put on the cruiser’s timeless look and inviting sound, while in what the rider is concerned, sex-appeal marks the spot. The video is actually called “Tell him you have plans,” on youtube but I won’t ruin the surprise for you, so check it out.
Looks to me like this one is much better than most bike commercial nowadays.
Honda has taken the wraps off a new Shadow model that they call RS 750. The bike is addressed to beginners and, with its fuel-injected and liquid-cooled 745cc V-Twin engine producing 42bhp and 45ft lb of torque, goes straight against the Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron 883 .
Compared to the classic Shadow cruiser, the RS 750 offers higher bars and pegs as well as a low seat height of 737mm / 29in, meaning a more upright riding position as a result of Honda’s strategy to offer all-round riding enjoyment.
Obviously, it is all made possibly by the use of the double-cradle steel tube frame and 41mm forks, but beginning riders will surely appreciate the fat 150-section rear tire that makes the 2010 Honda Shadow RS 750 look like a mean machine after all.
Honda hasn’t yet released the specs sheet for this model, but we do know that the new Shadow RS 750 will have an MSRP of $7799 when it will be available in March 2010. This was also established with the 2009 Iron 883 ($7899) as benchmark. The only sad part about this new Japanese cruiser going against the popular American model is that it will be available only in Metallic Grey.
