For decades, fun could best be defined as a potent engine sitting dead center in a strong, agile frame with nothing but miles of winding asphalt ahead. As long as we keep building and refining the Sportster®, that definition will stay true. If you’ve never swung a leg over, you should. Once astride, twist the throttle and feel the V-Twin generate mounds of torque. It’s a satisfying rush that hits you right in the pit of your stomach. We rubber-mounted the engine to the frame for a more comfortable ride — no road is unfamiliar territory, no journey too far. And though riding a Sportster has always been a blast, we keep finding more ways to make things even more rider friendly. We redesigned the transmission so it shifts smoother. Take a quick trip through the gears and you’ll no doubt appreciate the near-effortless clutch. There’s also improved kickstand ergonomics — now the bike is easier to reach and lift. The pure American street machine just keeps getting better. The only thing better than a street-eater is a custom street-eater, like the Sportster® 883 Custom you see here. We begin by giving it the smooth-operating, rubber-mounted Evolution® engine and 4.5-gallon tank. Then we go to work from there. We raise the handlebar, lower the suspension, and give it easy-to-reach forward foot controls. It all makes the riding position feel right. The custom look wouldn’t be complete without a 150 mm rear tire. Chrome Profile Laced wheel options available for both front and rear. And for the finishing touch, we even gave this ride a sleek two-up seat. Because the only thing better than eating up miles of endless asphalt is sharing the experience. For a limited time, we are offering one-of-a kind, custom color combinations that are over and above the standard two-tone color options available during the model year. These limited color combinations come with a custom decal that is only available through the Custom Color program. Each color has unique complementing pinstripes.
