I've never seen a "fake console" on the sportsters. Some year models had a gas tank trim that ran down the center of the tank but no console.

of course there would be a $2k difference, it's between an 883 and a 1200.
to OP, what year models are you asking about? There have been changes made in recent years compared to older years.
to answer the question Chris got it right, the 1200C has a black with highlighted fins and chrome covers, the 883C has grey engine with polished covers. Other than that, the bike is pretty much the same
