2010 Honda Shadow RS

Honda Powersports has introduced the 2010 Honda Shadow RS in USA. This agile and responsive V-twin roadster has clean, crisp lines and standard-style riding ergonomics that promises easy and comfortable riding.

2010 Honda Shadow RS’s higher pegs enhance ground clearance, and its thoroughly modern liquid-cooled 745cc V-twin engine with Honda’s sophisticated Programmed Fuel Injection adds to the riding pleasure.


Honda Shadow RS’s Classic roadster tank shape and seat are inspired by the world of flat-track racing and a torquey 745cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine pumps out a strong spread of power over a broad rpm range. Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) incorporates a single 34mm-diameter throttle body.

Sturdy 41mm front fork features a large-diameter billet-aluminum triple-clamp for a distinctive look plus confident, neutral handling and a plush 4.6 inches of wheel travel. At the rear the classic dual-shock suspension features five-position spring preload adjustability and 3.5 inches of wheel travel for a smooth ride.

  1. This is what I call machine. Very good design the power is also good just gives a feel of a nice bullet.

    Well are there any plans for the company to bring it here in India by any chance.

  2. Arjun I doubt Honda would bring Shadow RS here, as it will have to get it homologated in India. So they might be interested in bringing a 800cc or above cruiser, rather than this.
