Harley-Davidson Iron 883 is a cruiser bike available at a starting price of Rs. 9,42,238 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 3 colours. With both front and rear disc brakes, Harley-Davidson Iron 883 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This Iron 883 bike weighs 256 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 12.5 liters.
After Harley-Davidson discontinued its most-affordable Street models in India, the Iron 883 is now the stepping stone for the American bike maker. The BS6 iteration of the bike was launched a month before the BS6 deadline of 1 April 2020.
The Iron 883 sticks to the Sportster philosophy and gets an unadulterated and clutter-free design. The peanut-shaped tank gets a clean design with the manufacturer's name in bold lettering. With a blacked-out exhaust, frame, and wheels, the use of chrome has been kept to a bare minimum. The front-biased riding stance also complements the Iron 883’s sporty character. It gets an LCD display in the instrument cluster which shows the gear position, revs, and other details. A switch facilitates scrolling through the menu on the display.
As the name suggests, the Iron 883 is powered by an 883cc V-twin engine, which produces 70Nm of peak torque at 3,500rpm. A part of the Evolution family of engines, this air-cooled engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox that transmits the power to the rear wheel through a belt drive. Built around a tubular steel frame, the Iron 883 rides on the conventional telescopic front forks and dual springs at the rear.
The Iron 883 is available in three four paint schemes - Black Denim, River Rock Grey Denim, Deadwood Green, and Snake Venom.
