The 2020 Harley-Davidson Iron 883 is the company’s entry-level Sportster. It’s a sportier motorcycle with a strong engine and some badass styling. It’s a stripped-down and pretty simple machine.

The Iron 883 gets a good looking V-twin engine with a displacement of 883cc. The V-twin is air-cooled and brings along with it the classic Harley sound. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The engine makes 49 hp and 54 lb-ft of torque.

The Iron 883 opens the door to the Sportster line. It’s not the most powerful, but it offers a lot of style and substance for the money. The bike has a starting price of $8,999.

The motorcycle is available in several colors: Black Denim, Barracuda Silver Denim, River Rock Gray, and Scorced Orange/Silver Flux.

2020 Harley-Davidson Iron 883 Features

Blacked-Out Look

It’s the poster bike of the anti-chrome movement. You’ve got a black powder-coated 883cc 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 gaiters 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 grid, 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.

883cc Air-Cooled Evolution® Engine

Authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through, dripping with power. The rubber-mounted 883cc 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.
