    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. Which is better Forty eight or Iron 883?
    • Iron 883 is more of a controlled ride and forty eight is more of a ride over riders take, iron 883cc engine is more decent and keep under controlled type of bike, while the 1200cc of the forty eight is a more faster engine, both are good at short rides and a little bit of cruising, but if you have a really good 6 lines highway and a large distance to cover everyday i would recommend you to take a look at the softail family which is updated now, it has good collection , but for India they have provided only 4 bikes this 2020, so in short for if you are planning to get the sportster (iron, or forty eight or roadster or 1200custom they sure are good round town bikes and for local errands, ) if you are doing 100+ speeds on the highway along with your sporty bike riders, i would strongly recommend you to take a look at the softail family.
    • Both are same, engine displacement is the only diff, you can do that with 883 as well, there is an 1200 cc upgrade kit that is available

    Q. My height is 6.3ft, does it suits me or can you suggest me some other Harley. - Iron 883?

    Q. I just entered in my college and am thinking of buying Harley can you please suggest me for which I can go for and also that I can use on regular basis.
    • Here as per your daily usage Harley Davidson Street 750 would be a great choice to go with. It is a very good entry level V-Twin cruiser from the Harley-Davidson stable, Street 750 is the most affordable Harley Davidson available in the market right now. The engaging handling and the punchy motor makes it a very good budget cruiser. While it offers very good handling, whether within city streets or on a curvy road, the brakes could have been better, more progressive. Do take the test ride of the bike in order to clear all your doubts.
    • If you have money to burn, get the Harley forty 8
    • Iron 883
