For Honda, the key to standing out is not to stand out; thus, the Shadow Phantom’s design philosophy. The bike’s speed, ride quality, usable power, and, most importantly, pure riding pleasure are perfectly reflected in its understated, confident aesthetic. Some understated design cues include spoke wheels, black rims, curved fenders, and glossy black accents. The engine is a 745cc V-twin with blacked-out twin exhausts tuned to deliver the wide power spread that every cruiser rider covets. The low seat height and hinge bars are very comfortable, and the variety of colors ensures that it remains exciting year after year. Genuine Honda exemplifies undiluted speed and refined grace. If you’re looking for a modern yacht, look no further than the 2022 Honda Shadow Phantom Cruisers.
For example, the Honda Shadow Phantom is a well-known bobber-inspired, stripped-down V-twin with short frames, black wheels with spokes, and a blacked-out motor. When it comes to sailboats, simplicity is often preferable. But the Shadow Phantom is well-liked because of its many valuable features. The Honda’s reliability, low center of gravity, fixed fuel injection, and comfortable seating are at the top of the list. It’s no wonder that this Honda staple is one of the company’s best sellers.
2022 Honda Shadow Phantom Cruisers – Features and Specs
The power of a V-twin engine can’t be matched.
Bobber-inspired style with lots of glossy black surfaces.
Shorty Front Fender
The Shadow Phantom’s sparse front fender contributes to the vehicle’s overall lighter, sharper, and more contemporary look.
Black spoked wheels with black hubs are fitted with a 120/90-17 front tire and a 160/80-15 rear tire for a truly unique look.
Low Seat Height
Since the Phantom’s seat is only 25.8 inches off the ground, it can be easily ridden with a flat-footed gait when stopped at traffic signals or maneuvering into parking spots. The snug fit between the Phantom’s saddle and tank only heightens the impression of its overall lowness.
This streamlined, one-piece stool in the manner of a gunfighter is both functional and eye-catching.
Shaft Final Drive
Clean, tried, and accurate, requiring little to no maintenance. The shaft-end drive is the best choice for this type of car and its heavy-mileage customers. Nothing ever needs adjusting or lubricating while we’re out on the road. In addition, it contributes to a more revitalized cycle overall.
2-Into-2 Exhaust System
Sleek pipes with bullet-shaped mufflers give your vehicle an authentic appearance from another era. Combining the large diameter head pipes and the 2-into-2 system design produces the original V-twin cruiser sound.
The wide ratios of the five-speed transmission mean you can cruise down the street at a relaxed pace and still make quick work of passing faster cars on the highway.
Programmed Fuel Injection (Pgm-Fi)
By removing the need to adjust the speed, the Shadow’s fuel injection technology ensures smooth operation, from early cold starts to high-altitude cruising.
Three-Valve Dual-Plug Combustion Chamber
The three-valve combustion chambers used in many of our V-twin cars offer the best of both worlds by allowing for improved breathing and a corresponding boost in horsepower and output.
When it comes to stopping, you don’t want any old technology. We equipped the Shadow Phantom with a 296mm front disc for its exceptional stopping power and modern look.
Engine / Drivetrain
The 745cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine produces exceptional power across various speeds. The long-stroke design of the crankshaft creates a potent V-twin feel and a high PowerPoint at low engine speeds. Three-Valved Combustion Chamber with Dual Plugs. High-ratio five-speed transmission with lots of gears. Programmable fuel injection (PGM-FI) enhances efficiency and responsiveness.
Chassis / Suspension
Bobber-inspired style with lots of glossy black surfaces. Narrow front fender
The shape of the handles enhances the bobber’s form. The robust and fast 41mm frame is easily distinguished by its considerable girth, matte-finished shrouds and a large billet-aluminum triple clamp. Furthermore, it has a stable and assured ride quality that makes it easy to maneuver.
For a relaxing ride, you can adjust the spring setup on the dual-shock rear suspension to one of five different settings. One front disc brake with a twin-piston cylinder and solid metal pads holds a disk that measures 296 millimeters in diameter. There are drums at the back to slow things down.
The efficacy of a shaft final-drive system is stable, low-maintenance, smooth and reliable. Black spoke wheels and hubs are fitted with a 120/90-17 front tire and a 160/80-15 rear tire for a unique look. A seat height of no less than 25.8 inches is required for benches—a streamlined, one-piece settee in the classic gunfighter design. He elegantly gauged a 3.7-gallon fuel container.
