This Time, It's The British That Have Made A Shrunk-down Harley-Davidson Iron 883

This Time, It’s The British That Have Made A Shrunk-down Harley-Davidson Iron 883

Called the Detroit, this 125cc cruiser offers ultimate bang for its buck

The Harley-Davidson Iron 883 has made a solid name for itself and a lot of it has to do with the bike’s affordable price tag. But what if we told you there was an even cheaper way to look as cool as you would on an Iron 883? Well, the case in context is Lexmoto’s new 125cc cruiser that takes inspiration from the popular American cruiser, tones it down into a 125cc avatar, and even pays homage to its American roots by using “Detroit” as its name.

2016 - 2022 Harley-Davidson Iron 883

2016 - 2022 Harley-Davidson Iron 883

Nothing comes out of the hole like a Sporty

When Harley-Davidson makes changes to the Iron 883, they stay faithful to at least one important aspect – performance. While XL models have never been known as ’fast’ bikes, they certainly have a well-deserved reputation as ’quick’ bikes. Nothing in the Harley world comes out of the hole like a Sporty, or handles the corners like one, and the Iron 883 maintains that tradition with aplomb. Bikes like this show how the XL line has not only survived, but also thrived in the entry-level and sport-minded American markets.

2016 - 2022 Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight

2016 - 2022 Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight

It’s lean and mean with dark custom attitude

The Forty-Eight from Harley-Davidson’s Sportster stable has that signature bulldog stance with beefy front forks and fat tires on a narrow frame. The 1,202 cc Evo engine comes blacked out with chrome blings, fed by a ’peanut tank’ that appeared on Sporty’s throughout its history. Low, low seat height and Dark Custom attitude give the Forty-Eight that low-slung, lean, mean look.

2021 - 2022 Harley-Davidson Street Bob 114

2021 - 2022 Harley-Davidson Street Bob 114

Now quicker with a faster 0-to-60 time

Harley-Davidson ditched the Milwaukee-Eight 107 and repowered its Street Bob platform ahead of MY2021 with the powerful Mil-8 114 to give it a performance boost over its predecessor. This made it the least expensive stoplight burner in the 2021 lineup, as well as the lightest Big-Twin to carry the up-sized Milwaukee engine. The homejob-custom look is a carryover from last year but the graphics package is unique to this year-model setting it apart from its peers.

SCOOP: Harley-Davidson's New 500cc Naked Motorcycle Has Been Spotted!

SCOOP: Harley-Davidson’s New 500cc Naked Motorcycle Has Been Spotted!

The bike will likely serve as an elder sibling to the highly anticipated Harley 353R

In recent times, there’ve been a lot of rumors suggesting that Harley-Davidson is gearing up to set foot in the entry-level neo-retro motorcycle segment, which will come courtesy of its partnership with China’s QJMotor, the parent company of Benelli.

But in all this hype, what went missing is the first-ever sighting of Harley’s upcoming 500cc motorcycle.

Yes, you read that right. After the 353R, another Harley-Davidson motorcycle has been spotted in China which seems to be a 500cc offering, possibly an elder sibling to the highly anticipated 338R. Let’s dive into its details.

2016 - 2020 Harley-Davidson Street 500 / Street 750

2016 - 2020 Harley-Davidson Street 500 / Street 750

It’s a no-nonsense approach to a bar-hopping café racer

Powered by a Revolution V-twin engine, the Street 500 and 750 are premium Harley-Davidson even though they’re geared toward the budget-minded, entry-level crowd. Just because the price is low doesn’t mean they skimped on quality. The Street siblings come with a steel teardrop tank and fenders covered in the deep, rich color, and flawless finish that long ago made Harley-Davidson the benchmark for premium paint on a motorcycle. The cherry on top is the chrome tank badge — not a decal, as you might expect in an economy-priced bike, but a three-dimensional tank medallion — as Harley’s pledge to you that you are riding a premium quality machine.

2017 - 2018 Harley-Davidson Tri Glide Ultra

2017 - 2018 Harley-Davidson Tri Glide Ultra

Riding A Trike Isn’t Just For Old Folks Anymore

Harley-Davidson’s three-wheeled Tri Glide Ultra moved into the 2017 model year with a handful of improvements and a brand-spanking new engine. The factory powers it with its powerful Twin-Cooled Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine introduced last year that cranks out over 100 pounds o’ grunt to place it well into the power-cruiser category, even though H-D markets it as a tour bike. Exhaust components rerouting addressed heat problems from prior model-years, and the King of Paint added a couple of new, two-tone paint schemes to the palette for 2017, as well as a 115th Anniversary model for 2018. Harley’s target market for this beast mainly consists of persons who are unwilling or unable to manage one of their admittedly top-heavy, two-wheeled tourers for one reason or another, and I’ve always considered it to be a very laudable thing to try and make sure that anyone who wants bugs in their teeth can have it.

2017 - 2018 Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide

2017 - 2018 Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide

Harley’s Premium Hot-Rod Bagger

Harley-Davidson’s Custom Vehicle Operations department puts together what one could call showroom-custom bikes that include many of the features that buyers commonly add on post-sale and borrows much of the Infotainment system used on the big touring models. For 2017, this hot-rod bagger featured a new-and-improved suspension system to the table; and for 2018, it features the with the all-new, 117 cubic-inch, Milwaukee-Eight engine. Power output falls well above the 100 pound-foot mark — not surprising with a CVO machine — so it falls into the power-cruiser/stoplight-burner category. Performance, good looks and barrels of that Harley mystique push the CVO Street Glide over the top in my book, so join me while I check out the details of this vanity-stoking sled.

2016 Harley-Davidson CVO Pro Street Breakout

2016 Harley-Davidson CVO Pro Street Breakout

Harley-Davidson’s Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) program has been hard at work churning out models with the toppest-of-the-shelfestfeatures they can cook up. All that R&D isn’t wasted on the premium models though, as frequently technology pioneered in the CVO program makes its way through the Rushmore bikes and on down the line to the less-expensive models. H-D’s newest CVO release is a direct assault on the American muscle-bike market, and it cuts a mean figure with its raked front end and massive V-Twin engine. Introducing the FXSE CVO Pro Street Breakout, a model packed with CVO and Screamin’ Eagle yummy goodness as it rolls off the floor ready for stoplight-burner action. While Harley markets the V-Rod as its “performance line,” this Breakout definitely qualifies for that category as well, albeit with a more traditional look and DNA that goes back to the classic dragster/gasser era. Join me while I take a gander at this latest creation out of Harley’s CVO division.

2017 Harley-Davidson Street Glide - Street Glide Special

2017 Harley-Davidson Street Glide - Street Glide Special

Same Look Outside, But Major Changes Inside

Harley-Davidson updates its popular Street Glide family for MY17 with a few much-needed tweaks that make it as suitable for the superslab as it is for the boulevard. The earlier generation suffered from lack of power, uninspired suspension and a definite heat-to-rider transfer problem to boot. Harley addressed these problems to make the Street Glide into the bike it always should have been. Dual Bending Valve Forks and rear emulsion shocks take care of the suspension problems, while the Milwaukee-Eight engine brings 6.7 additional pounds of torque to help it push that front fairing into the wind comfortably at highway speeds and above. Adjustments made to manage the heat problem results in a whole new animal in the bagger stable. So, let’s check out the new models and try to act like we’re seeing the family for the first time, because in a way we are.
