Cycle magazine called the CB750, the most sophisticated production bike ever, on the bike’s introduction. Cycle World called it a masterpiece, highlighting Honda’s painstaking durability testing, the bike’s 120 mph (190 km/h) top speed, the fade-free braking, the comfortable ride, and excellent instrumentation.
The base Honda Shadow 750 is no great shakes when it comes to power, making 45 horses that may sound very low but are enough to make this motorcycle a zippy drive and keep it faster than most of the traffic around.
Registered. My friend has a 750 and 90 mph is max speed on it.
How Long Does the Honda Shadow 750 Last? A well-maintained Honda Shadow can last 15 years, on average. 15,000 miles is considered high mileage for these models, but it’s not uncommon to see models that go over 30,000 miles when the machine has been stored indoors over the winters.

A 750cc bike is certainly a hefty machine. Its large size and weight may be difficult for an inexperienced rider to feel comfortable on. If you’re still learning the fundamentals of motorcycling, you may want to downsize to a bike that is lighter and more nimble.
The Honda Shadow 750 is powered by a 745cc engine. This mid-range engine size gives you just enough power to allow you to ride safely on highways but not enough to get you into (too much) trouble. … The bike can hold highway speeds comfortably.
The Honda Shadow is an excellent beginner bike. Its has enough power to be exciting, but not enough to be dangerous. Its low center of gravity and low seat height inspire confident handling. Finally its low cost of ownership makes the Shadow one of the best choices for your first ride!
As far as power is concerned, 750cc is definitely big enough to pull your weight. A 750cc Honda Shadow my friend had could go faster than my 1450cc Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic which weighs about 300 lbs. more than his bike. If the Shadow is comfortable when you sit on it, go for it.
The Honda Shadow Spirit 750 has a five-speed manual forward transmission. This model is configured with a one down, four up shift pattern.

Honda Shadow: The Honda Shadow is a cruiser taking its styling cues from classic choppers of old. A pullback handlebar, bobbed rear fender, cruiser footpegs and a powerful V-twin engine make this as fun to stare at as it is to ride.
A good standard size for a beginner is 500cc to 700cc, depending on your physical size. But that engine size is plenty big enough to get you and a passenger across town or even across the country.
Suzuki GSX-R750 sure looks stunning, but it is too muscular for a novice. If you’ve just passed your test, you are not ready for something this unnerving. The power that a 750 puts out is a little too much for a beginner; and despite all its temptations, a supersport is not meant to be ridden as the first bike.
Registered. I would say around 400 lbs. If its just you riding then no worries. If u have a passenger then adjust the suspension, check the air pressure and have fun.
