Harley Davidson Iron 883

Agile, light and as dark as they come, the Iron 883™ is a back alley bruiser designed for minimalist fans. It’s raw, stripped down, and a thoroughbred Harley® with an aggressive riding position designed for the city streets. Its engine, rocker covers, front forks, cast aluminium wheels, chopped fenders and drag style bars are all black.

The Iron 883™ motorcycle takes attitude to a dark place. Reflecting the style of riders who want a quality ride with no hassles, the blacked- out, back-alley bruiser is the “anti-chrome” Harley® model. The Iron 883 is for those who want their first taste of that ride-hard-and-put- up-wet lifestyle. It’s for those who want to tear up asphalt and backroads instead of polishing paint and chrome.

With straight cut, dual shorty mufflers, a slammed, drag-style handlebar, front fork gaiters, chopped rear fender and solo seat, the Iron 883™ is a raw, stripped-down, aggressive bike that gives the rider an authentic, throwback riding experience. And with a very aggressive price point, it makes a perfect gateway into the world of Dark Custom™ motorcycles.
