Harley-Davidson Inc. is introducing a new bike in one of its most affordable lines.
The company announced the Sportster Iron 883 will start at around $7,900.
Last week, the Milwaukee-based company said reduced demand is causing it to cut 1,100 jobs over two years, close some facilities and consolidate others.
In a statement Monday, the company said Sportsters have “stood against the grain” since they were introduced in 1957.
The company’s chief marketing officer, Mark-Hans Richer, described the bike as having old-school style while leaving plenty of room for customization.
The new model is the latest Dark Custom motorcycle.
Would I like to have one? Absolutely not.
