VT750C2 Specs

VT750C2 Spirit Factory Specifications:

Continuing on the traditions of the VT750DC the C2 is a new and improved ride with the classic look of the spirit built on the chassis and engine of the modern 750 Aero. There are multiple Shadow VT750C2 models including the VT750C2 Spirit 2007 - 2009 and the newer 2012 -Present models.  Both are virtually identical to the equivalent Aero and Phantom models. Note that the earlier Spirit models use a 34mm CV style carburetor while the newer Spirt C2 models utilizes Honda's programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) and a 34mm throttle body. The C2 Spirit comes with a 21" front wheel and a one piece seat that matches the bikes curves.
