A Lot of Spirit.

The 750 V-twin in the Shadow Spirit produces surprising torque and get up and go. Thanks to Honda’s meticulous engineering.

Get the Low Down.

Strong, Silent Type.

The Spirit’s durable and virtually maintenance-free shaft final drive ensures smooth, dependable power delivery to the asphalt. No hassles, no grease flying everywhere. Just smooth, quiet power transfer.

Don’t be Fuelish.
