If you want people to listen to you, a whisper can be louder than a shout. That’s the idea here: If you want to stand out in a world full of chrome and bright colors, maybe more chrome isn’t the answer. Maybe less is. Take one look at the Honda Shadow Phantom and you’re going to know that’s true.
The Phantom is for riders who want a great bike, who love to ride and who want to make a powerful statement. Its blacked-out 745cc V-twin engine, black rims with matte silver highlights, bobbed fenders, spoked wheels and beefy front fork all set it apart from most of the other customs on the road.
The V-twin engine’s throaty exhaust sounds just right. And the Phantom’s slightly more upright seating position is just right for both longer rides and boulevard cruising. Best of all? That has to be the Phantom’s low price tag. It’s time to go over to the dark side—in style, on a Honda Phantom.
