Harley-Davidson XL 883 SPORTSTER 2001

The Sportster in its simplest version, without any options or frills.
The standard version of the Sportster range is the worthy heir to the first model that appeared in the range’s catalog in 1957: a basic motorcycle, devoid of any optional equipment, intended to offer simplicity and maneuverability to the greatest number thanks to a measured price.. Here, no chrome engine, tachometer, two-tone paint, large tank or even rear footrests, the bike is sober and extremely simple. While the impact is real on the price and lightness of this entry-level Sportster, it is difficult for Madam to justify buying a motorcycle that originally only allows single-seater use. The registration document certainly mentions two seats, but the rear pouffe and the corresponding footrests are optional…. an almost imperative option, which unfortunately adds several hundred euros to the bill. On the other hand, we will appreciate the integrated siren alarm device now fitted to all models of the US manufacturer, a really effective equipment that often allows you to reduce your insurance premium..

On the handlebars of this Sportster, you immediately find yourself in confidence, as the bike appears easy to ride and light. Regulars to Softail and other Tourers will often feel like they are taking control of a 125cc, considering the dimensions and measured weight of the beast. These qualities are particularly evident in urban use, where its mosquito size and the liveliness it displays are very effective in coping with the vagaries of rush hour traffic. A real pleasure, especially as the ‘The small ‘883 is not stingy with low to mid-range torque, reducing the need to juggle the gearbox. Outside built-up areas, the Sportster is less at ease on the other hand: if its use for a ride on small winding roads provides a lot of pleasure, the relatively modest power and limited autonomy (12.5-liter tank requires) clearly handicap the use on long journeys. The 883 Standard remains a basic machine, intended above all for the ride, to taste the joys of the Harley world without sacrificing all your savings..

In summary: The 883 Standard offers performance that is not revolutionary, just like its minimalist equipment. On the other hand, it is inexpensive and very easy to learn, essential qualities for all those (and all those) who are looking for a first Harley or a base of personal preparation..
