2016 H-D Iron 883 Preview

Harley-Davidson Dark Custom Sportster

The Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron 883 is jam packed with custom attitude from the second it hits the factory floor. Part of the Dark Custom line, the Iron is designed to fit your unique style.

The Iron 883 motorcycle turns up the authentic premium Bobber style, urban practicality, and comfort. Visually refreshed, its new dark finishes are better equipped for the urban environment to let riders tear up the asphalt instead of washing paint and polishing chrome.
