2012 Honda Shadow® Phantom

The Darkest Shadow® of Them All The Shadow Phantom has got to be the most unique Shadow we’ve ever made. It’s an utterly stunning head-turner, and one look will tell you why: Blacked-out 745 cc V-twin engine and black rims sporting matte silver highlights, bobbed fenders, spoke wheels, and beefy front fork. 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. And best of all, the Shadow Phantom gets an estimated 56 miles per gallon! Sometimes a whisper is way louder than a shout. And that’s most definitely the case with the Shadow Phantom.
