2022 Honda Shadow Phantom: STEALTH PERFORMANCE.

Introducing the 2022 Honda Shadow Phantom…

Honda’s Shadow Phantom makes a point of standing out by not trying to stand out. In a world of look-at-me noise, its understated, confident style is a perfect match for what this bike is all about: performance, ride quality, practical muscle, and above all straight-up riding fun. Subtle visual highlights include spoked wheels, black rims, bobbed fenders and matte black accents. Then there’s the engine, a blacked-out 745cc V-twin with a throaty twin exhaust, built to deliver the wide torque spread every cruiser rider wants. New colors this year keep it fresh, and the low seat height and pullback handlebar keep it comfortable. Pure Honda, pure performance, pure cool. The Shadow Phantom is exactly what you want from a modern cruiser.

When it comes to cruisers, sometimes simpler is better—take Honda’s classic Shadow Phantom, a minimalist, bobber-inspired V-twin whose uncluttered looks are highlighted by a blacked-out engine, short fenders, and black wheels with spokes. At the same time, practical considerations are always welcome, and the Shadow Phantom has them in spades, with programmed fuel injection, a comfortable seating position, low center of gravity and Honda reliability topping the list. No wonder it’s such a popular staple in Honda’s lineup.

2022 Honda Shadow Phantom Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

PERFORMANCE

V-TWIN ENGINE

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

STYLE

STYLISH FINISH

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 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.

 

 

COMFORT

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.

DRIVETRAIN

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.

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.

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.

 

 

ENGINEERING

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.
