While 745cc aren't quite enough to really light up the back tire or anything, the Phantom rumbles nicely along at 65, feels a little busy at 80 and buzzy beyond there—though it will pull itself up past the ton given room. The littlest Shadow's three-valve-per-cylinder, 52-degree, liquid-cooled Twin revs nice and smooth in the lower gears and beats the pants off cars. There's not a lot of acceleration, but Honda seems to have figured out how to sneak what sounds like more than the legal amount of noise past the gatekeepers, and maybe that's more important? Anyway, slightly slow is the way to go since, according to the Los Angeles Times, the Governator now wants to install speed sensors in 500 of SoCal's red-light cameras to write an estimated 2.4 million speeding tickets per annum and help make up the budget shortfall. Maybe decibel meters will be next?
