The Spirited Cruiser…

Sit on a Shadow Spirit 750 and we know what you’re going to think: “This is the perfect bike for me.” And no wonder: The Spirit 750 Combines style, performance, comfort and Honda technology all into a sporty cruiser package. The 21-inch wheel out front sets the tone, and the V-twin engine provides all the fun. In between you’ll find a perfect blend of classic and modern styling touches, including spoked wheels, plenty of chrome and a super-comfortable riding position. Get ready for some stares when you’re riding this bike. And plenty of envy, too.

Three things really set the Shadow Spirit 750 apart: its super low 25.7-inch seat height, its 21-inch front wheel and spoked rims, and its overall athletic, sporty feel. But now there’s another feature: Our optional Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS). Our Combined ABS can be a big help in making controlled stops in less-than-ideal conditions—like on wet pavement, or when there’s sand on the road or other debris. With two versions of the Spirit 750 (ABS and standard brakes) it’s like having your new Honda cruiser custom-built exactly the way you like.

The Spirit’s durable and virtually maintenance-free shaft final drive ensures smooth, dependable power delivery to the asphalt. No hassles, no grease flying everywhere. Just smooth, quiet power transfer.

The Shadow Spirit 750 C2 has long served as a machine that’s perfect for cruising city streets as well as exploring back-country roads. Thanks to its pronounced big-bike look, distinctive street-rod styling and a muscular V-twin engine-including the sophistication and metering precision of Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)-this is a bike that goes as good as it looks. And it all comes wrapped up in a surprisingly affordable package. Colors: Ultra Blue Metallic Flame, Black (ABS available in Black); Price: $8240, Flame $8540, ABS $9240; Availability: December

• 745cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin

The Power That Lurks In The Shadows.

There’s nothing like a V-twin when it comes to cruising. And the Shadow Spirit gets one of our best: a 745cc powerplant that provides plenty of torque and a wide, user-friendly powerband.

How Low Can You Go?

The Spirit features a low seat height, and the V-twin’s narrow construction makes it feel even lower. That’s good news at stoplights or in parking lots.

Strong, Silent Type.

The Spirit’s durable and virtually maintenance-free shaft final drive ensures smooth, dependable power delivery to the asphalt. No hassles, no grease flying everywhere. Just smooth, quiet power transfer.

Five-Speed Transmission

Wide-ratio five-speed transmission lets you cruise the boulevard at a low, unhurried pace, at the same time allowing you to hop on the highway without revving the engine through the roof.

V-Twin Engine

Nothing pumps out the torque like a big V-Twin. The Spirit’s power makes it perfect for around-town cruising, commutes and casual weekend-long rides.

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.

Spoked Wheels

Spoked wheels give the Shadow Spirit a classic look.

21-Inch Front Wheel

The Sprirt’s 21-inch front wheel helps create a narrow, hot rod custom look while providing a light steering feel.

Shorty Front Fender

A minimalist front fender gives the Shadow Spirit a lighter, cleaner, more progressive look.

Low Seat Height

The Spirit’s super low 25.7-inch seat height is something you’re going to appreciate when you’re maneuvering to park or flatfooting it at stoplights. Plus, the low seat also inspires rider confidence.

Comfortable Saddle

The broad, low-slung one-piece seat design is comfortable for both the rider and passenger.

Dual-Shock Rear Suspension

Dual shocks just plain look right on a bike like the Spirit. And with the super low seat height, they really help smooth out the bumps and potholes on your ride.
