2017 Honda Shadow Phantom Review

2017 Honda Shadow Phantom on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The Minimalist...

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 ain't everything in a bike.

This bike doesn’t need shiny colors and excess chrome to make its presence known.

We like to leave that to its blacked-out 745cc V-twin engine and its commanding, throaty exhaust.

The Phantom is finished off with spoked wheels on black rims, tough front fork, bobbed fenders and matte silver highlights.

No matter if you’re cruising the boulevard or taking a weekend trip, you’re going to be comfortable with the Phantom’s slightly more upright seating position. Here’s something that’s going to make you feel even more comfortable, the Phantom’s low price tag. It’s time to make your move and get on a Honda Phantom.

Feel the V-Twin Power

The Shadow Phantom’s 745cc V-twin engine features Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI), ensuring easy cold-weather starting and seamless, all-condition fuel delivery.

Style That Stands Apart.

Black engine, frame, rims and handlebar—all ever-so-perfectly accented with matte silver highlights—that’s the Phantom’s trademark look. It’s a machine everyone is going to take seriously.

Engineered for the Long Run

The Phantom’s durable and virtually maintenance-free shaft final drive ensures smooth, dependable power delivery to the asphalt. No hassles, just smooth, quiet power
