2020 Honda Shadow Phantom Buyer’s Guide: Specs & Price

The Honda Shadow line has been around so long that motorcycles are now in the retro class, along with being cruisers.

Trading on the appeal of Honda reliability and a price of $7899, the 2020 Honda Shadow Phantom has a few essential modern conveniences. You’ll find EFI feeding the SOHC three-valve heads, and there are two spark plugs in each head.

2020 Honda Shadow Phantom Buyer’s Guide pricesThat gives the liquid-cooled Shadow good gas mileage and impressive performance for a 745cc motor. The retro designation comes from wire-spoked wheels, twin shocks, and a drum rear brake.

The suspension is non-adjustable, save the spring-preload for the rear shocks, and it’s certainly adequate. The 2020 Honda Shadow Phantom is primarily an around-town cruiser, though the engine packs enough punch for freeway outings.

Plus, the 34 degrees of rake and 64.6-inch wheelbase are enough to keep the fat-tired Shadow Phantom steady at high speeds. In urban settings, the Phantom relies on small-diameter wheels, and light 549-pound curb weight for the agility needed in busy cities. The Shadow Phantom is a basic motorcycle done absolutely right for an appealing price.
