Harley-Davidson has hiked the price of the BS6 version of the Iron 883 by another 12,000 rupees. The motorcycle is now priced at Rs 9.38 lakh (ex-showroom).
Harley-Davidson has silently hiked the price of the Iron 883 in India. The Iron 883 belongs to the ‘Sportster’ range of Harleys and it was recently updated with a BS6 powertrain. The BS6 version of the bike was priced at Rs 9.26 lakh (ex-showroom) at the time of its launch in March 2020. However, the company has now increased the price by Rs 12,000, meaning the Iron 883 BS6 now carries a price tag of Rs 9.38 lakh (ex-showroom).
Apart from the price revision, there’s no change in the Iron 883 BS6 version. The motorcycle continues to retain classic Harley Sportster lines, featuring a round headlamp, peanut-shaped fuel tank, a flat & narrow drag-style handlebar, 9-spoke machined alloy wheels, short fenders, et al.
The engine here is an 883cc, V-twin, air-cooled unit that develops 68Nm of torque at 4,750rpm. This is 2Nm down from the BS4 version and it’s also produced higher up in the rev-range – the BS4 version produced 70Nm @ 3,500rpm. Power transmission duties are carried out by a 5-speed gearbox.
The suspension setup of the Iron 883 comprises 39mm front forks and preload-adjustable dual shock absorbers at the rear. The motorcycle rolls on 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels. Disc brakes on both wheels and ABS is part of the standard kit.
The Harley-Davidson Iron 883 was first launched in 2010, and the motorcycle has remained more or less unchanged since its inception. Before the launch of the affordable Street 750, the Iron 883 was the entry ticket to the Harley brand in India. Now while it’s been a little long in the tooth, there’s no denying the fact that the Iron 883 will still appeal to old-school riders. However, with potent products from Triumph and other brands available on the market, the Iron 883 will have a tough time despite its old-world charm.
