Cruiser Style + Roadster Cool = Instant Classic.
Yep, believe your eyes—those are higher-set footpegs and shorter, more upright bars. So, how can this be a Shadow cruiser, you ask? Oh it’s all Shadow, just with a heavy dose of old-school roadster thrown in—you don’t have to look too 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. And that means fun, with a capital “F.”
Liquid-Cooled Muscle: The Shadow RS is no stranger to power or 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: Fuel Injection ensures optimal fuel delivery, and thus performance, utilizing sensors for intake-port pressure, engine-coolant temperature, intake-air temperature and atmospheric pressure.
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? Its awesome fuel economy. How good? How about an estimated 56 miles per gallons? Now that’s Honda smart!
