Meet the opposite of pretentious. The quietly confident. The understated but never overlooked. We're talking about the 2019 Honda Shadow Phantom, a bike distinct for what it's not. With spoked wheels on black rims, a tough front fork, bobbed fenders and matte black accents, the Phantom makes a powerful statement. The upright seating position is comfortable for the urban ride or the weekend getaway. And the blacked-out 745cc V-twin and throaty exhaust always announce your arrival. All that, with a price tag sure to keep you in the black, too.
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.
Bobber-inspired styling with extensive blacked-out and matte finishes.
SHORTY FRONT FENDER
Minimalist front fender gives the Shadow Phantom a lighter, cleaner, more progressive look.
Spoked black wheels and hubs feature a 120/90-17 front tire and 160/80-15 rear tire to complete the overall custom look.
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.
Sleek, one-piece gunfighter-type seat is comfortable and looks great too.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
