Key Features

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Side-Mounted License Plate

Side-Mounted License Plate

True to the clean, fast lines of the bike, the side-mounted license plate leaves the rear fender surface smooth and uncluttered. Minimal and unique—every inch of the Iron 883 motorcycle is styled to perfection to achieve a raw, custom look.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Stop-Turn-Tail Lights

Stop-Turn-Tail Lights

Old school looks meet new-school engineering. Black, retro-style bullet taillights combine functionality to work twice as hard—stop beams and running lights plus turn indicators in two low-profile rear lamps. This eliminates the need for extra lights, creating a clean, minimal look.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Blacked Out Look

Blacked Out Look

The Iron 883 model is the anti-chrome motorcycle—decked in black from front to back with a defiant attitude that embraces the pure essence of riding. Black powder-coated 883cc engine with black rocker covers. Black chopped fenders that show off a lot of rubber. Black front forks with gators add an old-school look. Black oil tank cover, belt guard and drag bars. And black cast aluminum wheels that shoot Iron 883 motorcycle into the modern rebel culture and keeps the rebellious fire burning with plenty of freedom for customization.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Classic Peanut Fuel Tank

Classic Peanut Fuel Tank

As one of the defining features of Harley-Davidson® Sportster® models for decades, the classic 3.3 gallon tapered peanut fuel tank still holds strong today with its traditional styling and modern attitude. Following the line of the bike from front to back, the peanut tank angles down just right into the solo Sportster seat. Attitude and looks all balled up into one.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Drag-Style Handlebar

Drag-Style Handlebar

The low-rise, slammed black drag-style handlebar and black finish hand controls add to the stripped down, minimal look of the Iron 883 motorcycle. Born at the drag strip, the drag-style handlebar is an old school garage feature that puts you in a forward, aggressive riding position.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Hard Candy Custom™ Paint

Hard Candy Custom Paint

Hard Candy Custom paint is a large metal flake finish that’s more than just paint job, it’s a shining declaration of independence—bright, bold and unique.  If you'd like to have your Iron 883 motorcycle dripping with even more custom attitude and unruly style, finish it off with optional new Hard Candy Voodoo Purple Flake paint. This is big, bold metal flake paint laid down the old school way, with layer upon layer of hand-sanded clear coat. It'll put even more dark magic on your tank and fenders.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Evolution® Engine Heritage

Evolution® Engine Heritage

The Evolution® engine—known in certain crowds as the Blockhead—was first bolted to the frame of a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle back in 1984. Born from legendary Shovelhead and Ironhead engines, the Evolution® engine broke new ground in displacement innovation while maintaining the hunger for power, durability and proven reliability that The Motor Company was built on.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Evolution® Engine Innovation

Evolution® Engine Innovation

Air-cooled and durable as hell, the 883cc Evolution® engine is yet another nod to the unwavering work ethic that drives advancements in motor technology at Harley-Davidson. Aluminum heads and cylinders lighten the load of the bike and improve air-cooling efficiency. Electronic fuel injection says goodbye to carburetors and boasts increased reliability and less routine maintenance. Bottom line: the rubber-mounted Evolution® engine runs hard and rides smooth for thousands of miles so you can just worry about taking in the freedom of the open road.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

Feast your eyes on the 883cc Evolution® engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated cylinders, cylinder heads and rocker covers complete the dark look while chrome pushrods highlight the iconic V-Twin. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the 883cc Evolution® engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® New Foundation Brake System

New Foundation Brake System

Like riding itself, you can never go too far when it comes to improving a bike’s brakes. This is why for 2014 we gave the brake system of each Sportster model a complete overhaul designed to improve performance, fit and finish. We increased the size of the brake rotors from 292mm to 300mm, and added a more powerful, stylized front caliper with 34mm pistons, and stylized rear caliper to match. Other system features include an improved all-aluminum integrated rear master cylinder with reservoir, new all-aluminum front master cylinder with reduced friction and higher efficiency, and stainless steel braided lines. It all adds up to more confidence on the road, and more power and predictability when you squeeze the brakes.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) (Optional)

Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) (Optional)

When the burrito exit comes out of nowhere, you’ll need a little extra braking power. That’s why we’re proud to introduce optional anti-lock brakes (ABS) on all Sportster models. ABS improves overall braking performance, and keeps you from locking up under heavy braking. Plus, the entire system is smartly integrated into the design of the bike, so nothing gets in the way of your steel work of art. Because what’s the point of stopping if you can’t make a few heads turn?

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® New Ergonomic Hand Controls

New Ergonomic Hand Controls

If your hands feel good on the controls you’ll feel good on the bike. Which is why when you twist the throttle of a Harley-Davidson, you just know. You feel more dialed in, comfortable and attuned to the road and everything around you. In designing the new hand controls we went the extra mile to make sure every operation is as intuitive, fluid and effortless as possible. So you can keep your eyes on what’s over the next ridge and not what’s under your thumb. Things like self-canceling turn signals that are right where you want them to be and brake levers that are easy for all riders to reach. We’ve added new features, too, like a trip switch and vehicle “start” switch on keyless models. Details that may seem small but make a huge difference on the road. Because it’s tiny things like these that make a Harley-Davidson a Harley-Davidson.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Integrated Electrical System

Integrated Electrical System

Coursing through every 2014 Sportster model is a new body controller with updated routing. It has a cleaner look and reduces the number of wiring harnesses, switches, relays and fuses. Which is a fancy way of saying less fuss. We’ve also added a new voltage regulator with modified fins and integrated connectors to improve heat rejection. Like you, the 2014 Sportster® motorcycles are wired and ready to chase wind and eat up miles of pavement.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® New Closed Loop Exhaust System

New Closed Loop Exhaust System

Designed to meet future worldwide emissions standards, and the standards of future generations of Harley-Davidson riders. The new closed loop exhaust system delivers heart-pounding performance in the key of the trademark Harley-Davidson rumble. With its robust, soul-stirring big twin design, new durable mufflers with exhaust shields, a catalyst and mini heated oxygen sensors that improve emissions and drivability, this system is not only better for the environment, it makes riding better.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® H-D® Smart Security System (Optional)

H-D® Smart Security System (Optional)

The factory installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It's this attention to details and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Tach and Gear Indicator Readout

Tach and Gear Indicator Readout

Even though none of us would want to admit it, from time to time, we've all had to kick our shift lever back down to 1 to figure out what gear we were in. This year the Sportster® models get a new speedometer with a gear indicator readout and a tachometer you can activate with your trip switch. Now you've got all the information you need to keep it in the power band at the touch of a finger.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Low Seat & Slammed Suspension

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. A responsive ride for whipping through town or busting out onto the interstate.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Michelin® Scorcher™ Tires

Michelin® Scorcher Tires

Michelin® Scorcher Tires provide the superior performance, sensational grip, impressive durability and excellent handling expected on a race-bred bike. The exclusive deep-cut tread design improves grip and water evacuation capability. Grip performance and durability is also enhanced by the tire's rubber compounds, which use the latest generation of Michelin synthetic polymers. Under the rear rubber, aramid belts are used to stabilize your ride, which helps inspire confidence in handling.

2014 Sportster® Iron 883™ Motorcycles Harley-Davidson® Mid-Mounted Controls

Mid-Mounted Controls

Let your boots fall where they may, naturally to the mid-mounted controls and rider foot pegs on the Iron 883 model. An easy reach and tight rider triangle is confidence-inspiring for new riders eager to set off on their journey and riders whose legs run slightly shorter than others.
