2013 Honda Shadow Spirit 750

Posted on by  

With its big dimensions, the muscular design and the classic cruiser attitude, the 2013 Honda Shadow Spirit 750 demands instant respect every time it passes down the street.

As far as ergonomics are concerned the motorcycle was carefully designed to reward its rider with a relaxed riding position. Therefore, once on board, you are greeted by a pretty sporty handlebar, a tank-mounted gauge and a low 25.7-inch seat height.

The bike is built around a 745cc, liquid-cooled, 52-degree, V-twin, engine with PGM-FI induction. The engine’s power is sent to the rear wheel through a wide-ratio, five-speed transmission.

The ride quality is kept under control by a 41.0mm front fork (4.5-inch travel) and rear dual shocks with five-position spring-preload adjustability (3.5-inch travel).

The Honda Shadow Spirit comes with a price tag of $8,240.

Honda Shadow Spirit 750

The Shadow 750 Spirit’s style is classic cruiser. But with a sportier attitude. Featuring a low 25.7-inch seat, beefy V-twin and long, lean lines stretching to its 21-inch front wheel for a vibe that is classic “dragbike.” With Honda’s reputation for quality, this is a bike you’ll enjoy for years of trouble-free riding. And you get it all with one very reasonable price tag. The Shadow 750 Spirit. The performance is pure Honda, the spirit is pure sport.

When it comes to cruisers, looks can only get you so far. At some point, you have to perform. And no custom does it better—or more reliably—than a Honda Shadow. Decades of Honda innovation stand behind every Shadow, showcased in such features as our three-valve cylinder-head design and the reliable, virtually maintenance-free shaft drive. And that’s exactly why Honda is the only name you need to know when you’re looking for a new cruiser.

Five-Speed Transmission

Wide-ratio five-speed transmission lets you cruise the boulevard at a low, unhurried pace, yet lets you hop on the highway without revving the engine through the roof.

Dual-Shock Rear Suspension
