Honda provides its cruiser motorcycles the first-class model with the start of its blacked-out Honda Shadow Phantom. Honda has caught its Spirit and cut its front fender, beefed up its fork with large-diameter matte-finished shrouds, pitched black covers on the air filter and primary, petted on a thicker front tire and appended on a set of new spoked wheels. Matte polishes on the tank-mounted console and cylinder heads, also, the fork coverings complement the bare-bones appearances.

“We have a new cruiser that offers a whole new look for Honda,” said Honda Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino.

The Honda Shadow Phantom also receives modernized induction, making the switch from being carb-fed to EFI. The 745cc liquid-cooled V-Twin will now get its power from Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system with an automatic enhancement circuit that utilizes one 34mm throttle body.

The Shadow Phantom presents on a minimalist idea with a uniquely fresh and uncluttered aspect accented by a great blackout treatment, bringing motorcyclists back to the core essence of cool. With a torquey 745cc V-twin engine featuring the convenience of sophisticated Programmed Fuel Injection, the Shadow Phantom brings the joy of back-to-basics riding within reach of just about every rider.
