2020 Harley-Davidson Iron 1200

The 2020 Harley-Davidson Iron 1200 takes the Sportster to new heights with a retro-style and some higher handlebars. It’s a sportier motorcycle with Harley’s Evolution 1200 engine. With plenty of options and paint schemes to choose from, there’s likely an Iron 1200 for you.

The Iron 1200 gets a good looking V-twin engine with a displacement of 1,200cc. The V-twin is air-cooled and sounds like the classic Harley you expect. It’s Harley’s tried and true Evolution motor. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The engine makes 60 hp and 73 lb-ft of torque.

The Iron 1200 offers a lot of what the Forty-Eight does but with a different kind of style and a lower price tag. It’s not the most powerful motorcycle out there, but it is unique. The bike has a starting price of $9,999.

The motorcycle is available in three colors: Vivid Black, Barracuda Silver, and Billiard Blue.
