Because the Sportster family wouldn’t be the same without the 1200cc models, Harley-Davidson caries on producing the Custom, Low and Nightster models with small tweaks and calls them 2009 model years. Similar and yet differently styled, the bikes are out to get each one of those who have long planned to buy a Harley and finally decided on what family to start with.

The Low model is a comfy, agile and classy Sportster, the Nightster is a veritable bad boy machine and the Custom comes as the right combination between the first two models.

While the 2009 Sportster lineup is completed with the introduction of the brand new Iron 883 , we shouldn’t forget how this model was born from the combination between the Low and Custom ones that have kept on going strong in the last few years. These bikes are also new and look like being built following some unique recipes, but in fact they’re nothing but different rides suiting different rider needs while benefiting of the same V-twin engine.

Harley-Davidson is adapting to the motorcycle market’s most recent demands and the best proof of this fact is the newly launched blacked-out Sportster model. The latest Dark Custom of the series shares most features with its larger sibling, the Nightster 1200, but not the engine and therefore not the price. Everything from the slammed suspension to the side-mounted license plate holder is there, but the most important unit – the V-twin engine – displaces 883ccs while the price starts just under $8K.

Harley’s latest addition to their Dark Custom lineup – the Iron 883 – is nothing more than a blacked-out, stripped-down Sportster which addresses to the younger crowd, but it sure rocks.

In the promotional video, the bike is presented as being perfect for commuting, cruising and even to be ridden down the drag track in the weekends. And by the way, becoming a part of the exclusive Harley-Davidson club requires no password apart from the machine’s $7,899 MSRP.

Starting from the idea that a guarantee should mean something, Harley-Davidson uses the power of example and launches a program called Ride Free through which they encourage riders to buy the Sportster model.

More precisely, those who buy a ’08 or ’09 Sportster (excluding XR1200) from a participating dealer until March 31, 2009 are offered the opportunity to ride it for up to one full year and then trade it for a new Dyna, Softail, VRSC or Toruing model and receive the original MSRP value of their Sportster motorcycles.

Also, those who already own a ’07, ’08 or ’09 Sportster can trade it until March 31 and have the same benefits.

Although that might seem like one great opportunity (which it actually is), it is recommended that you take in consideration the fact that the economy is going through a tough period and there will be more and more such offers. Still, in March the weather starts being just good for riding so I bet you won’t abstain yourself.

Harley-Davidson’s latest racing success shows inspiration behind new model launch In 1970 Harley-Davidson introduced a new 750cc, 4 speed, 90 bhp V-twin engine motorcycle specifically for flat track racing, the XR750. Little did the engineers realise that the bike they had produced would go on to become the world’s most successful flat track bike, destined to dominate championships from the early 1970’s through to the present day. The XR750’s success was underlined again (in 2007) with (...)
