2018 Harley-Davidson Iron 883™


Aggressive throwback styling taken to a place altogether new. No need to shine this machine. Just get on and tear up the nearest street.

Styling + Features

  • BLACKED-OUT LOOK: It’s the poster bike of the anti-chrome movement. You’ve got a black power-coated 883 cc engine with black rocker covers. Black on the throwback round air cleaner cover. Chopped fenders, to show off a little rubber. And black front forks with gators to add a little old-school nostalgia.
  • STREET INSPIRED PAINT: We created paint jobs with colors that look right against the backdrop of the urban grind, and don’t need a lot of maintenance. These are tough finishes as mean as the meanest street.
  • LOW SEAT & SLAMMED SUSPENSION: The combination of a lowered front and rear suspension together with a low, narrow solo seat – just 25.7 inches high – provides comfort and confidence for riders of all sizes and experience. The ride is responsive and plush, whether you’re dodging urban potholes or out exploring the back roads.
  • TUCK AND ROLL SEAT: A solo seat that combines modern comfort with an authentic “tuck and roll” design inspired by the early days of the bobber.
  • MACHINED 9-SPOKE WHEELS: Nine-spoke wheels that are black as night where the rim meets the rubber and set off by a more contemporary mechanical look machined into the spokes.
  • 883 CC AIR-COOLED EVOLUTION® ENGINE: Authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through, dripping with power. The rubber-mounted 883 cc Evolution® engine runs hard and rides smooth for thousands of miles so you can just worry about taking in the freedom of boulevards and back streets.
  • DRAG-STYLE HANDLEBAR: Born at the drag strip, the low-rise, slammed black drag-style handlebar is an old-school garage feature that puts you in a forward, aggressive riding position.
