Why Choose Harley-Davidson?

Harley-Davidson is one of the biggest names in bikes and one of the most consistent sellers in the UK motorcycle market.

That means The Bike Insurer is flooded with insurance quote requests for the famous American brand.

The famous name

Despite selling markedly less than the likes of Honda and Yamaha, Harley-Davidson is still an iconic name and brand.

That’s because not only are its motorbikes immediately recognisable for their famous cruiser styling, Harley owners are also extremely passionate about their machines – as you can see from the Harley-Davidson owner reviews here.

Harley-Davidson insurance

The Bike Insurer knows how important it is for you to have the right Harley-Davidson insurance policy in place to cover you and your pride and joy.

That’s why we think it’s important for Harley owners to get their insurance from brokers that specialise in the American manufacturer – something that the Harley-Davidson insurance providers on The Bike Insurer do.

Nice looking bike but under powered for size of bike and especially when two up . I love the old style looks and the sound but eventually changed it for a more powerful... Nice looking bike but under powered for size of bike and especially when two up .

Good value Harley, especially for a born again biker, but looking forward to my next upgrade to get a bit more grunt and the real Harley sound Good value Harley, especially for a born again biker, but looking forward to my next upgrade to get a bit more grunt and the real Harley sound

Great bike, suited to shorter trips and city riding. Anything over a few hours and you will be wanting a larger bike Great bike, suited to shorter trips and city riding. Anything over a few hours and you will be wanting a larger bike

Nobody should tell you what bike to buy and nothing should sway your opinion other than hard fact and honest self integrity. I wanted a bike for ages and just kept coming... Nobody should tell you what bike to buy and nothing should sway your opinion other than hard fact and honest self integrity.
I wanted a bike for ages and just kept coming back to the Iron 883 in the end it was a close call between that and several others. Test drives are an excellent way of determining what you like. After riding it - i knew it was right for me!

It's a pleasure to ride, surprisingly good handling for the style of machine. Cheap enough to run, easy and really fun to customise.

If you want it, and you know you want it. Why read this review?
Get it!

This bike brings me much joy. Even though it's less comfortable than riding a ironing board down the cresta run. This bike rides like a real motorcycle you just feel it... This bike brings me much joy. Even though it's less comfortable than riding a ironing board down the cresta run. This bike rides like a real motorcycle you just feel it in your blood bones soul. I have ridden bikes from a 1949 BSA M21 and on, but this little Harley is more full of FUN than than a bag full of greased virgins.
Buy it for commuting Ahhhhhh no
Buy it for the joy of riding yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes.
