@Dave013 welcome to street forum ,plz go through forum threads theres already a Camparo thread for it ,but to make it simple test ride both the bikes back to back and decide for yourself
If moolah/money isn't a problem go for Iron ,I also have the same confussion
If go through the threads u will find out Iron is better in all areas ,except cost and only thing left is to Camparo the performance ,which will hąppen come this April
All said & done buy what suits you once u test drive both bikes yourself...

there have been a few comparisons

the best thing to do is go and see both

though its going to be hard to find a 750 to see

but that is the best way to go about it.

saw the bike and even booked it (in a hurry on the 1st day) but the only problem is that i cudnt test drive it or even switch on the bike just to hear the sound it's really bad from Harley to do like this how do you expect people to book it ? also the waiting period is very long since its a new one but i just closed my eyes and booked it in the hopes of it turning out to be good as the other harleys now am just thinking what if i go for the iron 883 !
just got another question regarding the iron 883:
1) is it possible to upgrade its tank to a bigger since it can only accomodate 12.5 litres ?

hey dave welcome to the show! I believe it is possible to fit a larger tank to the 883, harley even sells a mounting kit, but they dont sell the tank! Installation Kit For Large Capacity Tank-62999-07 | Fuel Tanks | Official Harley-Davidson Online Store

The 883 Customs, I believe, come with a 4.5 gallon tank (approximately 18 liters), as do the 1200 Customs. You can easily change the fuel tank to a larger 4.5 gallon, but I have heard you also have to change the seat as there is difference in the front of the seats due to the length of the tank.
You should be able to order an OEM Harley tank in the color you want.

Welcome Dave013 to the forum.

What is the best bike for you?
How long have you been riding?
How are you going to use the bike?
Mostly city and short trips? If so I’d buy the Street.
If you are fairly new at riding, buy the Street. It’s much lighter then the Sportster.
If you have been riding 500cc to 750cc bikes for a while now and you are going to tour with it, I’d buy the 883 or even you might think about the new HDs 2014 1200T.
2014 Sportster SuperLow 1200T | Touring | Harley-Davidson USA

I’m parcel to the look, the sound, the simplicity and, the character of an air-cooled motor.

Best to test ride them all and buy the one that best fits you and your needs.

Hello Shark nose i've been riding for more than 7 yrs i had an R15 and Royal Enfield 500 which i recently sold to buy a harley yeah i was planning for touring with it and i pretty much made up my mind with the iron 883 now the problem is color. I like both the black and amber one but can't make up my mind a little help on choosing the color would be good since i would use this bike for a couple of years then sell it to buy fatboy which i think now is not the right age to own that model bcose am just 23 )
