2012 Harley Iron 883 | Quick Look

2012 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

It would be an extremely easy mistake to dismiss the Harley-Davidson Iron 883 as just another beginner bike from the Sportster range.

While it certainly is a non-intimidating motorcycle, the Iron 883 happens to be extremely fun to ride.

Part of youth-focused Harley-Davidson’s Dark Custom subculture, the Iron 883 has a sporting side that begs for it to be thrown around in canyons and the throttle twisted hard everywhere you ride it.

This year, the bike gets new Michelin Scorcher 31 tires and some cosmetic upgrades.
