The whole idea behind this all new cruiser was to definitely look and feel like a Shadow, while also add a touch of modernity to the already potent powerplant. So the 745cc, liquid-cooled, 52-degree, V-Twin engine featuring a single cam acting on each cylinder’s three valves gets Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection system with automatic enrichment circuit and one 34mm throttle body. From our experience on previous generation models, this should deliver even more low-to-mid rpm torque and also keeps things lively down the open road. Throttle response should also be instant now and we expect the new engine to feel like it finally got what it deserved.

A veritable cruiser, the Shadow Phantom comes with a wide-ratio five-speed transmission and a shaft final drive, but this is no news considering Honda’s tradition of providing powerful, but also very reliable cruisers.

Just looking at the 2010 Shadow Phantom you notice the 64.5-inch wheelbase and the fact is that engineers worked to provide a fairly long, low and highly maneuverable (for the class) motorcycle, so the center of gravity is very low too. You’ll find the seat positioned at only 25.7 inches from the ground and with all the controls at quick reach, the Shadow Phantom will be as comfortable as a Shadow Spirit, if not even more.

This thing meets the road with 17-inch front and 15-inch rear standard spoked wheels with Dunlop rubber on, while irregularities and bumps are absorbed by the 41mm fork offering 4.6 inches of travel and dual shocks with five-position spring preload adjustability capable of 3.5 inches of travel. For a midsized cruiser, this is more than acceptable. So are the brakes, which are composed from a single 296mm disc with twin-piston caliper up front and a rear drum.

All in all, the 2010 Honda Shadow Phantom weighs in at 549 pounds wet, but we trust in the now more modern engine to make it disappear once the rider opens up the throttle.

Along the years, most Honda Shadow models were found as docile midsize cruisers staying truly faithful either to the classic or custom style, depending on model, but the 2010 Honda Shadow Phantom has come to change that and a look at it is all that it requires for you to realize that this is definitely the best looking standard Shadow out there.

The critics will say that this is nothing more than a blacked-out Shadow Spirit 750 and we tend to stand by their side although not totally. This thing was designed as a bobber and the fat wheels, thick fork arms, redesigned handlebar as well as the entire bodywork, blacked-out and matte finishes stand by the bobber (not custom) side of this very attractive motorcycle.

Everything from the small headlight and signal lights to the taillight looks like bought from an aftermarket parts catalog (including the engine) and this adds an expensive touch to the bike. If you’re planning to buy this thing and hate inquiring people, be prepared to deal with them more often.

The Honda Genuine Accessories list includes backrests, a boulevard screen and even synthetic leather saddlebags, but these units will make it more comfortable and practical, not necessarily better looking.

In order to be a completely competitive player in the midsize midnight cruisers category, the Honda Shadow Phantom needs to meet the affordability factor and with a $7,999 MSRP, we believe it does.

Many of us know someone who has been injured or killed in an auto, truck, motorcycle or pedestrian accident. An average of 110 people die each day in car crashes on U.S. roadways. Many auto accidents are caused by distracted drivers (talking on the phone or texting), while other accidents may be caused by drunk drivers, road construction or defective vehicles. For many drivers and passengers it is often not a matter of if, but when.

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, on average, there are more than 6 million car accidents on the U.S. roads annually. More than 3 million people get injured due to car accidents, with more than 2 million of these injuries being permanent. There are in excess of 40,000 deaths due to car accidents every year.

Such injuries and death often leave the victims and their families devastated and understandably confused about what to do next. Insurance companies often look out for their own best interest, not the policy holder (denied claims, bad faith).
