2013 Harley Davidson Iron 883 Review and Specification

2013 Harley Davidson Iron 883

This blacked-out bruiser is a raw, aggressive throwback. No chrome, no apologies—just an authentic ride…

The 2013 Harley Davidson Iron 883 pushes minimal Dark Custom styling to the edge with a V-Twin beat and gritty, old-school garage features. The low MSRP makes this model a great starting point for customization. Born on the gritty dirt tracks and drag strips of the 1950s, the Harley-Davidson Sportster represents the uninhibited essence of motorcycling.

The Harley Davidson Iron 883 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 back roads 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 Harley Davidson 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.
