Embrace Your Dark Side…

If you want people to listen to you, a whisper can be louder than a shout. That’s the idea here: If you want to stand out in a world full of chrome and bright colors, maybe more chrome isn’t the answer. Maybe less is. Take one look at the Honda Shadow Phantom and you’re going to know that’s true. The Phantom is for riders who want a great bike, who love to ride and who want to make a powerful statement. Its blacked-out 745cc V-twin engine, black rims with matte silver highlights, bobbed fenders, spoked wheels and beefy front fork all set it apart from most of the other customs on the road. The V-twin engine’s throaty exhaust sounds just right. And the Phantom’s slightly more upright seating position is just right for both longer rides and boulevard cruising. Best of all? That has to be the Phantom’s low price tag. It’s time to go over to the dark side—in style, on a Honda Phantom.

Take a Ride on the Honda Side

Who says that cruisers put style before function? Not a Honda Shadow Phantom. Here’s a bike that is a knockout in terms of style, that’s a fact. But underneath that dark look and the tasteful chrome accents, the Phantom is all Honda. With its torque-rich 745cc V-twin engine featuring the sophisticated ease of Programmed Fuel Injection and three-valve/dual-plug combustion chamber construction serving up heaps of low-, mid- and top-end muscle, the very affordably priced Shadow Phantom is going to be the right bike for hundreds of lucky riders.

With authentic bobber styling and a pure, minimalist spirit, the VT750 Black Spirit is a perfectly turned-out celebration of an iconic style and culture. From its bobbed tail to its assertive front wheel, every contour is carefully styled. Its bold, kicked-out forks and raised handlebars provide the point of focus from which it leans back into a long, tapered tank. It only comes in one distinctive colour, a striking Graphite Black which is highlighted by a number of exclusive trims and details. As well as the fenders, tank and seat, the short, semi-drag-style handlebars, tail-light, headlight, air cleaner cover and rear shocks are also black. The centrepiece is an eye-catching, black-painted engine with cast-in fins that give it a traditional air-cooled look. Riding the VT750C Black Spirit is a stirring experience, and its aggressive attitude and streetwise confidence create its own authority on the street.

 

 

2015 Honda Shadow Phantom VT750C2B www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

There’s No Substitute for 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.


The Phantom Look

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, no grease flying everywhere. Just smooth, quiet power transfer.

 

 

 

2015 Honda Shadow Phantom VT750C2B www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

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 296mm 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.

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 25.7 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

Three-Valve Dual-Plug Combustion Chamber
