The most notable changes to the 2016 Harley-Davidson Dark Custom Iron 883 series are the new shock breaker and the forks. Some bike experts consider this series to be the best factory bobber of any breed of this brand. Despite the fact that this bike started as a garage-customized vehicle – the industrial authenticity also appears on the gritty urban filter section. The wheel section will have the new 9-spoke cast aluminum wheels, the front wheel is 19 inches high, and the rear is 16 inches high, both with a black finish. We will see a lot of black on the block engine and the lower section. The color options include Charcoal Satin, Black Denim, Olive Gold with an eagle-and-shield tank logo, or Hard Candy Custom Gold Flake with flame detail paired with black fenders.
There are no changes in the air-cooling equipment, except in its shape. Other new equipment includes the blackout exhaust system, and the round air filter that will expand the view of the rubber mounted engine. All of the cylinders use the 76.2 mm x 96.8 mm, with the combination of ESPFI, which stands for Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection. That brings out the engine heat to 49 horsepower and torque at 50 lb-ft. The riding experience will be familiar to riders of the previous model. The most distinctive updates are the new cartridge dampers located inside of the 39mm stanchions. This new series has a new fork with triple-rate progressive springs, with new pistons and new valve stacks that can handle rough roads.
The new features of the 2016 Harley-Davidson Dark Custom Iron 883 series are mind-blowing. No wonder the brand’s spokesperson believes that this next generation of bikes is promising for Harley Davidson and the global market. The pricing depends on the color options you choose for this bike, pricing starts at $8,849. You can compare this bike with the 2016 Road Glide Ultra.
