2016 Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron 883

New suspension leads the way in the changes for the Iron 883, Harley-Davidson’s bobber in the Sportster line. The new shocks use emulsion technology and have a wider range of preload adjustability, while the forks use cartridge damping to improve the action of this sporty cruiser.

In addition to new paint and graphics, as well as less chrome, the Iron 883 also gets 9-spoke cast aluminum wheels (shod with Michelin Scorcher 31 tires) as part of an overall blacked out treatment. A tuck-and-roll seat means more comfort for all-night rides through cityscapes. ABS is an option.
