Ash vs. Evil Dead Episode 1, Season 1, El Jefe
« on: November 05, 2015, 04:43:20 PM »
The main motorcycle used in Ash vs. Evil Dead, season 1, episode 1 is a Honda Shadow RS, VT750RS. Honda manufactured the Shadow RS from 2010 to 2013. Its hard to identify the exact model year of the Shadow RS used in Ash vs Evil Dead, because all model years look very similar except for the color, and the Shadow used in this episode does not have stock paint. However, the right side cover on the 2010, 2012 and 2013 model Shadow RS had a chrome plaque in the upper left corner. It was missing on the 2011 Shadow RS and on the Shadow RS in this episode of Ash vs. Evil Dead. Also, the stock 2011 Shadow RS had a red, white and blue paint job on the tank. It was referred to as the Americana version, and was kinda polarizing, so that might explain why the bike does not have stock paint. If I had to guess, I would say the Honda Shadow RS in Ash vs. Evil Dead is a 2011 model that has been repainted. The motorcycle scene starts out with the bike parked in a strip mall parking lot. A female character in the show runs out to start the motorcycle using the bikes kick starter, while an evil spirit is quickly traversing the parking lot and headed her way. This made identifying the bike confusing because Honda never manufactured a Shadow motorcycle with kick start. If you look more closely at the bike, Photo #3, you will notice the kick starter is a facade, and consists of a spring loaded shaft attached to a metal plate, which is attached to the engine crankcase right side cover. The non-functioning kick starter was added to create a more exciting scene.

Here are some facts about the Honda Shadow RS:

1) RS stands for Retro Standard
2) 2010 model colors: White with black side panels or Gray with black side panels
3) 2011 model colors: Red white and blue with black side panels
4) 2012 model colors: Blue with black side panels
5) 2013 model colors: Black with black side panels
6) All model year Shadow RS motorcycles have a single disc front brake and rear brake drum
7) The engine cylinder and head for all model years were painted black and have a chrome plated valve cover
