Like the acclaimed 2013 Custom Vehicle Operations™ Breakout ® model that precedes it, the Breakout features styling that’s smooth, tight, and intended to showcase the engine and the tires.
“With Breakout we got down to motorcycle essentials, which means emphasizing the powertrain and the wheels,” says Harley-Davidson Styling Manager Kirk Rasmussen. “The black and chrome engine visually pops out of the center the bike, and then to maximize the impact of the tires, the fenders are chopped. We wanted a lot of rubber showing to give the Breakout a tough, muscular look.”
Long and low-slung, the Breakout features a 240mm rear tire visually balanced with thick forks and chopped fenders, while a shaved tank console and a drag handlebar keep the profile low. A Twin Cam 103B™ powertrain and other components are trimmed in gleaming chrome and gloss-black paint. The new 10-spoke cast-aluminum Gasser wheels are finished in gloss-black powdercoat. A gloss-black finish is applied to the new cast-aluminum oil tank, as well as fork lowers, muffler shields and the wide, drag-style handlebar. The side-mounted license plate and combination stop/turn/tail lights leave the wide rear fender uncluttered.
The Breakout is available with ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and the Harley-Davidson security system as a factory-installed option. The Breakout MSRP is $17,899 in Vivid Black, and $18,299 in either Big Blue Pearl or Ember Red Sunglo.
