Sportsters have long been seen as the cheap, entry-level Harley-Davidson that can provide joy to new and experienced riders alike. Years ago, in order to keep the price point low, you had to find a run-down old Ironhead or choose from a handful of 1990s-era solid-mount five-speeds. That's not the case anymore. Fairly new, fuel-injected and rubber-mounted Sportsters can now be found in the $3,000 and $4,000 range, not much more than the price of basketcase Ironheads. With the excellent range of bikes available since the late 2000s in both 883cc and 1,200cc trim, buyers can choose from the edgy Iron, Nightster, and 48, the classy Custom, or the sporty Low series to find a model that suits them best.
