The Honda Shadow Phantom is a cruiser motorcycle intended for on-road riding. An over-achiever when it comes to a low center of gravity, rideability, comfort, and performance. Shadow Phantom features a 745cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin in a variety of configurations. The bike has good low-end torque and the modest 15-inch 160mm rear tire puts all of the V-twin’s power to the ground after the shaft drive takes its share.

About the 2015-2020 Honda Shadow Phantom

Honda got quite a bit of mileage out of the venerable Shadow platform. The Shadow Phantom is one of the most intriguing motorcycles from Honda, all of which feature a 745cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin in a variety of configurations.

The Honda Shadow Phantom plays a card from the Harley-Davidson Dark Custom deck, and it handles its hand deftly. Seriously blacked out, with grey where black doesn’t dominate, Honda Phantom is long and low with more attitude than you expect in the Shadow line.

The fattish 120mm front 17-inch tire plants itself firmly on the road, giving the bike a muscular front end. Adding to the front beef are 41mm forks with flat gray covers over the chrome tubes, keeping to the dark theme.

The addition of EFI to the equation seems to have helped the sub-liter twins quite a bit, and the twin-plug heads get a good burn. No surprise, the Phantom leaves cars in its wake at stoplights, and it does so effortlessly.

The bike has good, but certainly not overwhelming, low-end torque and the modest 15-inch 160mm rear tire puts all of the V-twin’s power to the ground, after the shaft drive takes its share. A 3.7-gallon gas tank gives the Phantom good range.
