You are watching: Honda shadow spirit 750 top speed
Hello folks...I was wondering if any of you very knowledgable types could chime in...What is the potential top speed for my 2003 Honda Shadow VT750 Spirit? Most of my buddies ride sportbikes and although I understand that there"s no match when it comes to raw performance, it would be nice to know what my potential is as far as keeping up on the highway. I still haven"t been able to ride since my accident in early February (mostly due to the fact that gas tanks for these in decent condition are tough to come by for a decent price). Because of that, I"d like to know if there are any last minute upgrades that could potentially squeeze a little more juice out of my bike. Thanks a lot!
You"ll easily maintain legal speed. Shouldn"t that be enough? I"d imagine you"d be able to top 100 MPH. But heck, even a Ninja 250 will top that.A little advice: don"t attempt to "keep up" with your sport bike buddies. Riding like that, whatever your bike, can get you killed.
Right, I would imagine that I could, but I just want to make sure that I can top 100. As long as I can acheive 100, I"m happy lol. I"m not going to try to keep up with them on the corners or anything...I just want to keep up with them speed-wise cruising the highways...

I ride a 2005 shadow spirit 750 chain drive. No mods other than a memphis shades windshield (malibu model). I"m 6"1" 290 lbs. I"ve taken it up to 105 and still had more before I chickened out. (it"s not built for that kind of speed even though it can do it)
I"m sorry, I"m not the self-righteous type, but these kinds of posts really bother me. First, that bike should not be pushed to 100 mph. You are overtaxing the drive train at that speed. The bike is just not made for that kind of riding. Even assuming you stay upright, you"ll kill the bike in short order if you do that for more than an occasional burst.Second, even apart from the drive train, the design of the bike is not meant for the kind of riding a sport bike is made for. Leaning thru turns on 750 Shadow with any aggressiveness at all will soon get you in trouble. But most importantly, no one should be riding at those kinds of speeds except on a race track. Sure, an occasional bit of fun on an isolated road, fine. But blasting around on highways in a group with screaming sport bikes is not only dangerous as hell (I couldn"t care less), it gives all of us a bad name. And it"s just plain dumb.Sorry. Nothing personal and I was a kid once, too. But it needed to be said.
