Comfy and capable, the 750 Shadow is an interesting alternative to a Harley
But it still isn't a Harley. That 750cc engine needs more grunt to satisfy

Modern styling twist on the old Shadow. Not a bad bike by any standards, but not a Harley and a bit short on go to make it – this is a 750 for gawd’s sake
