Overview

Description

Behold, the classic roadster.





Check it out: higher-set footpegs and a shorter, more upright bar. We’re talking serious classic roadster here, built for riders who want to actively ride their bike, and not just putt from place to place. Make no mistake: the Shadow RS will transport you anywhere you want to go, and you’re going to have a blast getting there. This Shadow offers a heavy dose of old-school roadster style and function—you don’t have to look hard to see the classic flat-track influences in the peanut-shaped fuel tank and flatter seat. It all adds up to an amazing motorcycle that’s just as much at home on a favorite back road as it is prowling on a Saturday night.





Power player.





The Shadow RS has total street cred when it comes to power and torque, thanks to its brawny, liquid-cooled 745cc V-twin. Cruise cross-town or hit the highway—this machine can handle both, and sound really good doing it.





Honda Fuel Injection.





The Shadow RS’s fuel-injection system delivers trouble-free starting in almost any condition, and better performance to boot!





Comfortable classic.





Higher pegs, more upright bars, and a plush, low, but slightly flatter saddle add up to cruiser comfort with a sporty feel. Which, when you think about it, is exactly how it should be with a machine this versatile.





Don’t be fuelish.





One of the best things about the Shadow RS? It gets awesome fuel economy. How good? How about an estimated 56 miles per gallon? Now that’s Honda smart!

  • 745cc V-twin Engine: The Shadow RS's liquid-cooled, 745cc V-twin produces impressive, perfect-for-cruising-or-commuting power across the entire rpm range, while its long-stroke crankshaft design helps create a brawny V-twin pulse and low-rpm torque.
  • Three-Valve Dual-Plug Combustion Chamber
  • Fuel Injection: Fuel Injection ensures optimal fuel delivery, and thus performance, utilizing sensors for intake-port pressure, engine-coolant temperature, intake-air temperature and atmospheric pressure.
  • Chain Final Drive: Some riders just think a classic cruiser needs a chain. The Shadow RS hears you there. The chain is light and efficient—and best of all, it just looks right, and helps set your Shadow RS apart.
  • Handlebar-Mounted Instruments: Putting the speedometer and the other instruments up on the handlebar in a single, uncluttered gauge gives the RS a sporty, purposeful, super-clean look. It also makes them easy to read!
  • Upright Seating Position: With the Shadow RS, you sit low, but a bit more upright, and the footpegs are a little further back. The result? A bike that offers all-day-long comfort, and one that's practical too, letting you see what's going on around you.
