2018 Honda Shadow Phantom


The Shadow Phantom® celebrates the joy of back-to-basics motorcycling by delivering a V-twin ride packing a uniquely clean and uncluttered appearance. Check out the minimalist look and extensive blackout treatment that bring your eyeballs back to that very cool 745cc V-twin engine, featuring the convenience and sophistication of Programmed Fuel Injection. By staking out the low-profile approach to cool, the Shadow Phantom reinforces the idea that bling isn't everything in a bike.


  • 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.
  • SHORTY FRONT FENDER: Minimalist front fender gives the Shadow Phantom a lighter, cleaner, more progressive look.
  • 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 296 mm front disc for distinctly modern stopping power.
  • STYLISH FINISH: Bobber-inspired styling with extensive blacked-out and matte finishes.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • GUNFIGHTER SADDLE: Sleek, one-piece gunfighter-type seat is comfortable and looks great too.
  • 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.
