Aggressive throwback styling taken to a place altogether new. No need to shine this machine. Just get on and tear up the nearest street. It was one of the early Dark Custom™ motorcycles. A dark pioneer of raw, blacked-out, stripped-down custom aggression.
So the question was: how do you make something that good better? Here’s the answer. You build on it. All new suspension. A new rolled leather seat. Jaw dropping new pipes and wheels. All the details dialed in tight. The all-new Iron 883™ motorcycle. Welcome to the state of the Dark Custom™motorcycle art.
Classic Peanut Fuel Tank
As one of the defining features of Harley-Davidson® Sportster® models for decades, the classic 3.3 gallon tapered peanut fuel tank still holds strong today with its traditional styling and modern attitude. Following the line of the bike from front to back, the peanut tank angles down just right into the solo Sportster seat. Attitude and looks all balled up into one.
The Evolution® engine—known in certain crowds as the Blockhead—was first bolted to the frame of a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle back in 1984. Born from legendary Shovelhead and Ironhead engines, the Evolution® engine broke new ground in displacement innovation while maintaining the hunger for power, durability and proven reliability that The Motor Company was built on.
Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) (Optional)
When the burrito exit comes out of nowhere, you’ll need a little extra braking power. That’s why optional anti-lock brakes (ABS) are on all Sportster® models. ABS improves overall braking performance, and keeps you from locking up under heavy braking. Plus, the entire system is smartly integrated into the design of the bike, so nothing gets in the way of your steel work of art. Because what’s the point of stopping if you can’t make a few heads turn?
Michelin® Scorcher™ Tires
Michelin® Scorcher™ tires provide the superior performance, sensational grip, impressive durability and excellent handling expected on a race-bred bike. The exclusive deep-cut tread design improves grip and water evacuation capability. Grip performance and durability is also enhanced by the tire’s rubber compounds, which use the latest generation of Michelin synthetic polymers.
New Tuck and Roll Seat
Throw a leg over the solo seat on the Iron 883™ motorcycle and you’ll wonder how anything that looks this tough as nails can feel so good on day spent tearing up the streets. This is an authentic “tuck and roll” design inspired by the early days of the bobber, then given the thoroughly modern comfort you expect on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.
