As low as Harley can go

If “inseam-challenged,” have a limited budget and always wanted a you’re in luck. The Sportster 883 Low just be your two-wheeled to Harley-riding bliss.

The Sporty is elemental Harley-Davidson.

And the 2010 883 along with its nearly dark twin, the Iron boil down the H-D experience to its form with the brand’s basic mill: an 883cc, air-cooled V-Twin.

However, the Low broadens access to Harley with the absolute lowest from Harley in 2010. At in color Vivid Black, no Harley model can go lower the 883L.

Giddy up and go from Evolution Vee is for what could easily be a beginning rider’s bike. But for all my riding experience it took me a few to get used to the way the 883 develops low-end

At roughly 2200 rpm, the 883 cranks out 46 ft-lbs. That’s 95% of torque (48.5 ft-lbs @ rpm) arriving just the time you’ve fully the clutch lever!

This smack of torque right off the shouldn’t be inferred as some of drawback, but it’s conceivable a new might need a short of acclimatization in order to gel with the engine character. Especially say, rolling away a stop.

Otherwise, power and throttle are smooth and linear. Furthermore, the feels like it has enough in reserve to pull a taller top than what feels a short-ish fifth gear in the box.

Nevertheless, the Little That Can still has enough on tap that overtaking at freeway isn’t a matter of taking life in your hands. The feels at ease in the 80-mph

The 883L feels at ease in the range.

The dual-piston single-caliper does an admirable job of hauling from speed the 883L’s running-order weight of 583 pounds.

As the name implies, this is one low H-D, and saddling up to the Low will determine if it’s the one for you.

The seat height will planting two boots easy for the shortest riders, but its overall package had my 5-foot 8-inch and 30-inch inseam feeling And with only 3.9 inches of clearance, dragging hard early is a peg-grinding reality for the 883

Entering intersections with a moderately aggressive lean will result in the left-side feeler, or the underside of the lower pipe, auguring into the sooner than you might

The limited suspension travel lends to quickly wearing peg also means some jolts over rough sharp-angled cracks and bumps in the Ride quality is pleasant road surfaces that are in good condition, but choppy will have you thinking suspension or gel seat quicker you can say “Corbin!”

Clearly there are a couple in having a bike with limiting dimensions, but the 883 Low’s height and compact rider package might also it the ideal ride for lots of out there. I’m willing to bet dollars to that a good share of the … interested in two wheels find this Harley-Davidson’s package very appealing.

It may be even tiny to some, but the Harley-Davidson Sportster 883 Low offers performance and big-bike styling belie its small-bike features and smaller price tag.

Stay tuned to see how the 883L up against Honda’s new Shadow RS in an shootout.
