On the other hand, the Iron 883 also has a big discount of Rs. 80,000 on its head. The Street Rod comes for Rs. 6.51 lakhs and sits just above the Street 750 in the Harley range. However, its current discounted price is just Rs. 5.50 lakhs which makes it a great overall package.
The Iron 883, on the other hand, is the third most affordable Harley in India after the Street duo and attracts sticker price of Rs. 9.20 lakhs. After applying the heavy discount, the asking price comes down to just Rs. 8.40 lakh. While it still is not cheap, this is among the maximum discount ever to come over these bikes.
