Did you know Honda’s 2024 Shadow Phantom is one of the most affordable full-size cruisers made today?

The 2024 Honda Phantom Shadow comes in two colors, Deep Pearl Gray or Orange Metallic.

A water-cooled 745cc V-twin powers the Shadow Phantom. It’s good for around 40 hp and has a very pleasing engine and exhaust note.

Despite its 540-pound curb weight, the Shadow Phantom is very easy to ride and maneuver through turns.

Instrumentation is basic but functional and commiserate with a cruiser in this segment.

The Shadow sports bobber-like styling that is tasteful and well proportioned.

The Shadow Phantom rolls on 17-inch front and 15-inch rear spoked aluminum wheels. It’s a remarkably agile cruiser.

Riders seeking a fun and affordable middleweight cruiser for local rides in and around town will appreciate the combination of quality, performance, sound, and value Honda offers with its Shadow Phantom.

Unlike other entry-level American Honda bikes, the Shadow Phantom is manufactured in Kumamoto, Japan, out of the same factory that builds the company’s premium Gold Wing and CRF450R racing bike.

The Shadow sports a nice comfy seat that lets miles melt away with ease.

Is Honda’s 2024 Shadow Phantom cruiser a new Harley-Davidson Sportster? That is the question posed by Vice President and Editorial Director Mark Hoyer during our official preproduction video meeting. Honda has a history of building upon the Sportster legacy as outlined during the Is Honda’s 2021 Rebel 1100 DCT Cruiser a Modern Sportster? and 2021 Honda Rebel 1100 MC Commute Review articles and videos. And now that The Motor Company has exited this segment (its entry-level bike is the 2023 Nightster), if you’re seeking a full-sized V-twin cruiser that’s less than 10 grand, your options are limited for a new motorcycle.

The Shadow Phantom is positioned as a middleweight bobber-style cruiser from Honda Motor Japan. It’s $8,399 and is powered by a 745cc liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin that sounds awesome. It’s hard to believe but, American Honda has been importing these Shadow cruisers into America since 1983. This marks the 41st year of Shadow! The Shadow Phantom fits into the V-twin cruiser world in a segment ignored by its rivals: affordability, as it’s the least expensive full-size cruiser in the entry-level segment (Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycle’s entry-level cruisers are both more than 10 grand).

For its price, retailing at $8,399, plus another $300 if you desire ABS, you get a lot of bike for your money. This 745cc engine features three-valve cylinder heads, two intake

Speed Read: A garage-built Ducati 996 café racer and more

custom motorcycle news 190 745x497 1

The latest café racers, flat trackers, and electric scooters.
We kick things off with a feel-good story of a botched Ducati 996 custom job, rescued by a talented garage builder. Then we look at a dazzling Yamaha SR500 flat tracker from 20-year-old Moritz Bree, a dustbin-faired Honda Dax from K-Speed, and a BMW CE 04 scooter from Deus ex Machina.

Ducati 996 café racer by Jaron Hall
Ducati 996 by Jaron Hall Most people would balk at the idea of customizing a Ducati 996, but Utah-based garage builder Jaron Hall’s work on this 996 is nothing short of noble. That’s because when Jaron got his hands on the 996, it was in dire need of saving.

The Ducati’s previous owner had tried to turn it into a scrambler, so it came to Jaron with no fairings, a hacked subframe, and a smorgasbord of sketchy parts. Working after hours (he has a marketing day job), and taking on the entire build solo, Jaron turned the mongrel 996 into a high-class Italian café racer.
