2012 Harley-Davidson XL883L Sportster 883 SuperLow Review

2012 Harley-Davidson XL883L Sportster 883 SuperLow

The SuperLow, powered by the venerable 883cc air-cooled Harley V-Twin, holds the honor of possessing the lightest claimed dry weight in Harley’s stable in 2012. It also features a Sportster tank, longer travel rear suspension, low seat height, and comfortable rider cockpit. The 883 makes most of its peak torque in the 2000 rpm range, which is another reason this little Harley feels so strong right out of the gate.
