March 11, 2019

The new Sportster Iron 883™ offers a throwback style with a modern take. With this bike as your partner, you can tackle those city streets or enjoy an open road adventure! This new Harley-Davidson® offers styling that harkens to the first Sportster bikes the Motor Company manufactured back in 1957. The iconic Evolution engine with its air-cooled V-Twin design will have you itching to take your next road trip. This bike boasts a narrow profile for a nimbleness that can handle city riding with ease. The new Softail suspension helps you effortlessly glide over the pavement while still creating a secure connection to the road. See for yourself at Gail's Harley-Davidson®! Slide into the tuck and roll seat and experience a fine-tuned suspension!

Certainly! Iron 883 is comfortable for long rides Harley Davidsons known to be highway cruisers. The Iron 883 is a raw, stripped-down, aggressive bike that gives the rider an authentic, throwback riding experience.

2018 Harley Davidson Sportster Iron 883 review

Aggressive throwback styling taken to a place altogether new. No need to shine this machine. Just get on and tear up the nearest street.

Features may include:

  • Blacked-Out Look

It’s the poster bike of the anti-chrome movement. You’ve got a black powder-coated 883cc engine with black rocker covers. Black on the throwback round air cleaner cover. Chopped fenders, to show off a little rubber. And black front forks with gators to add a little old-school nostalgia.

  • Street Inspired Paint

We created paint jobs with colors that look right against the backdrop of the urban grid, and don’t need a lot of maintenance. These are tough finishes as mean as the meanest street.

  • Low Seat & Slammed Suspension

The combination of a lowered front and rear suspension together with a low, narrow solo seat—just 25.7-inches high—provides comfort and confidence for riders of all sizes and experience. The ride is responsive and plush, whether you're dodging urban potholes or out exploring the back roads.

  • Tuck and Roll Seat

A solo seat that combines modern comfort with an authentic “tuck and roll” design inspired by the early days of the bobber.

  • Machined 9-Spoke Wheels

Nine-spoke wheels that are black as night where the rim meets the rubber and set off by a more contemporary mechanical look machined into the spokes.

  • 883cc Air-Cooled Evolution® Engine

Authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through, dripping with power. The rubber-mounted 883cc Evolution® engine runs hard and rides smooth for thousands of miles so you can just worry about taking in the freedom of boulevards and back streets.

  • Drag-Style Handlebar

Born at the drag strip, the low-rise, slammed black drag-style handlebar is an old-school garage feature that puts you in a forward, aggressive riding position
