The Shadow Phantom’s engine is a 745cc liquid-cooled V-twin with impressive power over a range of rpm.
The crankshaft features a long-stroke design that produces a strong V-twin feel and low-rpm torque peak.
The engine also boasts a Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system for good throttle response and fuel efficiency.
The bike’s chassis and suspension have also received updates. The bobber-inspired styling now features extensive blacked-out and matte finishes.
The front and rear fenders have been minimized, and the headlight cover has been revised.
The handlebar and handlebar clamps have been updated to enhance style and comfort. The cylinder head now features machine-cut fins to contrast the black engine components.
The Shadow Phantom’s sturdy and responsive 41mm fork features large-diameter matte-finished shrouds and a large billet-aluminum triple clamp for a distinctive look, delivering confident, neutral handling.
The dual-shock rear suspension features five-position spring preload adjustability for a smooth ride.
Regarding braking, the new model will feature a single rear disc brake on standard and ABS versions. The single front disc brake with twin-piston caliper grips a 296mm drilled rotor between sintered metal pads.
The 2025 Shadow Phantom will also feature a sleek, new single seat with an available passenger seat.
The seat height is comfortable, 25.6 inches, making it accessible for riders of various heights. The bike has a stylish 3.7-gallon fuel tank and new LED front and rear turn signals.
The Shadow Phantom is expected to continue its tradition of excellent fuel economy, with previous models achieving up to 56 miles per gallon.
The bike’s top speed is also impressive, with older models reaching speeds of up to 95mph.
The Shadow Phantom has always been praised for its durability and reliability. A shaft final drive adds to the bike’s legendary durability, and ABS is standard, though it only operates on the front brake.
The handling is stable, thanks to a spacious 64.6-inch wheelbase and a relaxed 34 degrees of rake.
The 2025 Honda Shadow Phantom is not just a motorcycle; it’s a statement of style and reliability. Its updated features and improved performance will continue its legacy as a favorite among cruiser enthusiasts.
