Segment: Custom/Cruiser

Are you looking for a dark menacing bobber, but all you could find was in the big-bore class? Well, not all hope is lost, as Honda is offering the 2013 Shadow Phantom, a bike which should fit your bill like a charm.

Based on the proven middleweight Shadow platform, the Phantom is offered in two blackened versions, and comes with a beefy front tire, black engine and frame, black lighting housings and black bars.

The rims are also black, just like the forks and rear shocks, while the only chromed detail is the dual bullet exhaust. Mean and lean, the 2013 Shadow Phantom is THE dark bobber you've been looking for.
