V-Twin in stealth mode.
Honda's Phantom may have understated looks with its spoked wheels on black rims, tough front fork, bobbed fenders and matte silver highlights. But make no mistake, the blacked-out 745cc V-twin and throaty exhaust always makes a big entrance.
The Phantom has a slightly upright seating position so it’s equally comfortable cruising the boulevard or taking weekend trips. All with a price that will keep you in the black.
Modern V-Twin Power: Enjoy easy cold-weather starting and seamless, all-condition fuel delivery thanks to the Shadow Phantom’s 745cc V-twin engine featuring Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI).
Understatedly Bold: The Phantom’s black engine, frame, rims and handlebar—all ever-so-perfectly accented with matte silver highlights—definitely help give it a vibe that demands attention.
Made To Go The Distance: The Phantom’s durable and virtually maintenance-free shaft final drive ensures smooth and dependable power that makes it a true pleasure to ride.
- 2-into-2 Exhaust System: Sleek pipes feature bullet-style mufflers for that classic cruiser style of yesteryear. Large-diameter head pipes and 2-into-2 system design combine to put out true, V-twin cruiser sound.
- Shaft Final Drive: Clean, efficient, proven, low-maintenance. Shaft final drive is the perfect choice for a machine like this, and for riders who pile on the miles. You never have to worry about lubrication or adjustment out on the road. And an added plus: it helps keep your bike cleaner, too.
- Three-Valve Dual-Plug Combustion Chamber: It’s the best of both worlds: The three-valve combustion chambers used on many of our V-twin cruisers feature two intake valves and one exhaust, helping them breathe efficiently to boost both horsepower and torque.
- V-Twin Engine: Nothing pumps out the torque like a big V-twin. The Phantom’s power makes it perfect for both around-town cruising, commutes and casual weekend-long rides.
- Low Seat Height: Skimming the pavement at just 25.8 inches, the Phantom’s low seat height makes flat-footing it at stoplights or in parking lots a breeze. And the Phantom’s narrow seat/tank junction makes it feel even lower.
- Front-Disc Brake: If there’s one place you don’t want retro performance, it’s your brakes. That’s why we gave the Shadow Phantom a 296mm front disc for distinctly modern stopping power.
- 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.
- Stylish Finish: Bobber-inspired styling with extensive blacked-out and matte finishes.
- Spoked Wheels: Spoked black wheels and hubs feature a 120/90-17 front tire and 160/80-15 rear tire to complete the overall custom look.
- Gunfighter Saddle: Sleek, one-piece gunfighter-type seat is comfortable and looks great too.
- Shorty Front Fender: Minimalist front fender gives the Shadow Phantom a lighter, cleaner, more progressive look.
- Five-Speed Transmission: Wide-ratio five-speed transmission lets you cruise the boulevard at a low, unhurried pace, yet allows you hop on the highway without revving the engine through the roof.
