2009 Honda VT750C Shadow Spirit

Introduction

Styled for the good times, the lean and low-down Shadow Spirit delivers up a deeply satisfying cruising experience with stretched proportions, the lowest seat height in its class and an exhilarating rumble of acceleration. Equally at home on country roads, the Spirit rolls quickly and effortlessly up to speed at the light turn of its throttle or cruises lazily down the road with the agreeable pulse of V-twin power.
Settle back into its contoured gunfighter seat with your feet up on its pegs. The Shadow Spirit’s low centre of gravity, raised handlebars and comfortably positioned controls provide light, responsive operation for smooth and easy handling over the road ahead. All this and its cool, beautifully detailed looks make the Shadow Spirit a sleek and inviting machine that opens whole new worlds of cruising enjoyment. Enjoy nothing less than eye-catching style, proven Honda reliability and supreme fit and styling – all at the best value money can buy.
