Iron 1200 Overview

Those who think that the era of cruiser motorcycles has ended must have not seen the Harley Davidson Iron 1200 or heard about its popularity in the Philippines and global market. The Iron 1200 has been a part of Harley Davidson’s Sportster range of motorcycles for quite a while. The retro-style cruiser motorcycle from Harley Davidson has been in production for four years. 

The classic styling of the motorcycle is not the only good thing about it. Coming with a tagline of “individuality on wheels” the bike is surely a unique, exquisite, and exceptional package in the segment. Along with great styling, the bike also offers impressive performance and superior ride quality to make up for a price tag of P820,000, coming in only one single ABS variant in the Philippines. 

Harley-Davidson Iron 1200 Design

The Harley Davidson Iron 1200 is one of the finest-looking cruiser motorcycles in the segment and definitely a unique bike in Harley’s Sportster range. The bike perfectly blends retro-styling with some modern features and the classic appearance of the bike is enhanced with some key design features like bikini fairing, a minimalist speedometer, along with fork gaiters, a side-mounted license plate, and bobbed fenders.

The leather seat along with the chrome-detailed speedometer definitely adds to the overall appeal of the bike and adds an amount of glitz to the retro-styling. The bike also features a digital odometer, and the chrome-detailed engine and a uniquely designed chrome-finished exhaust definitely add to the appeal of the bike. A great thing about the bike is that Harley Davidson allows buyers to customize the gas tank in stripes that would have the brand’s name and are available in contrasting colors as that of the tank.


Iron 1200 Ride & Handling

Coming to ride and handling of the Iron 1200, the bike could not get any better in terms of that. The mini ape hanger handlebar along with the low slung seat makes for the perfect riding position that enables great handling and offers superior comfort. The bike is really easy and enjoyable to ride especially on those long highway cruises. 

The bike has a ground clearance of 4.3 inches and 59.6 inches wheelbase offers great stability and the bike is really commendable in terms of control, cruising smoothly through those corners. The tires are wide and add to the classic cruiser appeal while also making for more grounded rides at higher speeds. The tubular mild steel frame of the bike makes for great durability along with a really smooth and efficient suspension system. 


Harley-Davidson Iron 1200 Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Harley Davidson Iron 1200 gets a really powerful and capable engine that makes for some really enjoyable performance and a smooth-riding experience. The bike is powered by a 1202cc air-cooled, fuel-injected V-twin engine that can produce 66 hp of power and 96 Nm of torque. The engine is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission system with really smooth gear shifting.

The fuel consumption is pretty decent in terms of a 1200 cc engine and is even better when cruising within a fixed speed range on the highways. The bike gets a large fuel tank with a capacity of 12.5 litres which can take you for quite some distance when going on long rides. 

Iron 1200 Braking & Safety

The braking units on the Harley Davidson Iron 1200 comprise disc brakes on both wheels that give the powerful bike some really commendable stopping power. Further safety is ensured by the ABS which ensures safer braking at higher speeds. 

As for other safety features, the bike does miss out on a few features like cruise control and stability control while coming with features like engine check warning, pass switch, and side reflectors. 

Harley-Davidson Iron 1200 Verdict

Harley Davidson has a class of its own when it comes to heavyweight cruiser motorcycles and the Iron 1200 is definitely one of the best in their range. If you need a comfortable, retro-style cruiser with a range of modern features, then it is surely one of the best options for you in the Philippines market. Performance is top-notch with unparalleled ride quality, the perfect blend for highway cruising along with great handling for city roads.
