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.

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.
Broad, low-slung one-piece seat design is comfortable for both the rider and passenger.
Low Seat Height
The Spirit’s super-low 25.7-inch seat height is something you’re going to appreciate when you’re maneuvering to park or flat-footing it at stop lights. Plus, the low seat also inspires rider confidence.
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.
Nothing pumps out the torque like a big V-Twin. The Spirit’s power makes it perfect for both around-town cruising, commutes, and casual weekend-long rides.
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
Dual shocks just plain look right on a bike like the Spirit. And with the super-low seat height, they really help smooth out the bumps and potholes on your ride.
Shorty Front Fender
Minimalist front fender gives the Shadow Spirit a lighter, cleaner, more progressive look.
21-Inch Front Wheel
The Sprirt’s 21-inch front wheel helps create a narrow, hot rod custom look while providing a light steering feel.
Spoked wheels give the Shadow Spirit a classic look.
