Often when talking about the legendary Harley Davidson (or HD as they are reverentially known), all one needs to say is, The Men Are Back. For almost a century, Harley Davidson's bikes have known to exude nothing short of macho prowess and have been the dream of every man's man. Come 2010, Harley Davidson comes riding into the Indian territory, but not without a few made-for-India offerings - some are cruisers while others are tourers or sports tourers. The Harley Davidson Sportster 883L, for instance, is a land cruiser. Like all HD machines, the Sportster would 883L would be available across 5 cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chandigarh.

To reduce vibrations on uneven terrain, the engine is rubber mounted on to the frame.

Design And Comfort
Like any other Harley Beauty, the Sportster 883L is an example of raw male power on the road. The new graphic on the fuel tank is definitely eye-catching and adds to the iconic status of the brand apart from the more than usual low seat. Its foot pegs are mounted midway, not too low, to facilitate even the position required for a sportier ride. Also, its front and rear suspension are lowered enough to enable superb handling of the bike. All these features make the Sportster 883L an easy choice even for those who aren't too tall. By the way, the L in the end stands for 'Low!'

Ride And Handling
Those who have ridden the Sportster 883L at least once have admitted that its ergonomics do take a while to get used to. As has already been mentioned, this bike is meant to make riding convenient for even those who are short. The one piece solo seat is positioned a mere 25.3 inches above the ground, which renders this vehicle stability and comfort.
