2018 Harley-Davidson Iron 883 Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

 

Harley-Davidson Sportster Story

Thriving on street-bred and track-based racing performance since being introduced in 1957, the nimble, fun-to-ride Sportster® family of motorcycles is an American legend. With its lightweight narrow profile, aggressive riding position, and a variety of styles from the Dark Custom motorcycle look of the Iron 883™ to the race stripe graphic and new attitude of the 1200 Custom, the Sportster® motorcycle appeals to a wide variety of riders.

 

2018 Harley-Davidson Iron 883 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

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.
