ProLow seat height, easy to maneouvre

ConsVague handling, underpowered

Following my latest 2 wheeled adventure- which, if you don’t already know, left my beloved Harley Sportster 1200S, in a rather sorry state and me in a somewhat sorrier state- my manager at work showed uncharacteristic goodwill and trustingly lent me another bike! As I work in a Harley dealership...

ProA dream of a bike

XL883 2007 Model - this is a fabulous bike. Now comes with fuel injection which means there is no more waiting for the bike to warm up, you turn the key and just ride away, fabulous! Lights come on automatically, the bike is alarmed and knows when you have left it and when you come back by the...

I ride a 2005 XL883C Sportster. The bike as supplied new is underpowered & I had to pay what the Americans refer to as the Harley Davidson tax, i.e. had the bike Stage 1 tuned & Screamin Eagle pipes fitted - this transformed the bike completely. It's now a quick bike & sounds like a Harley should...

I have always dreamt of having a Harley. I bought this as it was fairly cheap and it is my first big bike. After I installed Screamin Eagle pipes it got the real Harley sound and it sounds brutal at times. But I love to hear the sound of it when I bring it out in the spring time. There is one flaw that I have to mention: the front brake is not very good but I think it has been upgraded on newer models. Buy one, join your local HOG chapter...you'll have lots of fun :-)

I have recently taken ownership of a 2000 Sportster XL883C. I find it very comfortable and adequately powered. It has had screaming eagle exhausts fitted prior to me buying, so I have no reference of comparison as to whether it is under/over powered. Its powerfull enough for me and the braking is excellent.
