2011 Harley-Davidson XL 883N Iron 883

The Iron 883™ pushes minimal Dark Custom styling to the edge with a V-Twin beat and gritty, old-school garage features. The $7,999 MSRP makes this model a great starting point for customization. Born on the gritty dirt tracks and drag strips of the 1950s, the Harley-Davidson® Sportster® represents the uninhibited essence of motorcycling.

Key Harley-Davidson XL 883N Iron 883 Features


Ever since its introduction in 2007, the Nightster® model has prowled the streets with a deep, menacing growl. Low, dark and aggressive, it brought a styling attitude to the Sportster® family that had not been seen before - a raw, Dark Custom™ bike that delivers a 1200cc knockout punch.

Chopped front and rear fenders. Side-mounted license plate. Combined stop/turn/tail lights. Low 25.3-inch seat height. Old-school front fork gaiters. Raw-boned graphics and a unique finish on its V-Twin Evolution® engine. And just for good measure, black throughout. With its gritty, no-nonsense look, the Nightster® model is the motorcycle for those who want Sportster® performance coupled with an attitude you don't normally find on such a nimble machine.

o 5-speed transmission
o Dual staggered exhaust
