The first time you lay eyes on the 2011 Honda Shadow Phantom VT750C2, it’s impossible to keep yourself from staring. Gawking, really. And wishing you had one in your garage. After all, this is the most unique Shadow we’ve ever made, an utterly stunning head-turner with its blacked-out 745cc V-twin engine and black rims sporting matte silver highlights, bobbed fenders, spoke wheels, and beefy front forks. Then the exhaust note hits you, a deep, throaty pulse rumbling from dual exhausts. It’s hard to resist, we know. And downright impossible once you’ve seen its price tag.
The Shadow Phantom embodies the minimalist, stripped-down ideal of custom cruisers past, delivering a uniquely clean and uncluttered look accented with extensive use of blacked-out features—the frame, engine, rims, and handlebars—bringing motorcyclists back to what it means to be cool. With its torquey 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 puts the thrill of saddling up one of the wickedest customs on pavement within reach of just about every rider.
