The Japanese motorcycle manufacturer has announced a new addition to its 2010 cruiser range, namely the Shadow VT750 Black Spirit, which is a variation of the Shadow Spirit, but with a ‘bobber’ look. According to Honda, the seat is the lowest in the 750cc cruiser class and creates a deep riding position that allows an easy reach to the grips and a laid-back cruiser feel. Moreover, the instrument panel is placed on top of the fuel tank, and features a large, easily readable speedometer dial, a compact assembly of practical gauges and indicator lights and an eye-catching silver-painted cover. Key features include:
- New handlebar shape enhances bobber styling.
- 745cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine

- low 25.7-inch seat height
