2017 Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron 883 Buyer's Guide | Specs & Price
2017 Harley-Davidson Iron 883

Part of the Harley-Davidson Dark Custom line, the Sportster Iron 883 is a truly elemental motorcycle. Stripped down to the bare necessities, the Iron 883 recalls the attitude of the original Sportster introduced 60 years ago.

Given significant suspension updates last year, the Iron 883 is unchanged for 2017, but that’s okay. It remains an outstanding cruiser with good handling and acceleration that caters to smaller riders due to its compact ergos. Think of the Sportster Iron 883 as the younger brother to the Roadster.
