THE NEW HARLEY-DAVIDSON®BREAKOUT®BELONGS TO THE STREET

Aggressive Styling and Gritty Attitude from a Premium Softail® Chopper

MILWAUKEE (March 8, 2013) – The 2013 Harley-Davidson® Breakout®motorcycle is an urban prowler.  With authentic swagger that turns heads in traffic and a proud stance certain to draw a curb-side crowd on bike night, the Breakout is presented as a premium model in its segment with distinctive finishes and specific components not available on other Harley-Davidson bikes.

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 103™ powertrain and other components are trimmed in gleaming chrome and gloss-black paint.

Like the acclaimed 2013 Custom Vehicle Operations™ (CVO™) Breakout model that precedes it, the Breakout features styling that's smooth, tight, and intended to showcase the engine and the tyres.

“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.”

The Gasserwheels are new and specific to the Breakout, according to Rasmussen.

“We've always loved the gasser-style drag racing wheels from the 1960s and ‘70s,” says Rasmussen. “Our wheels are loosely inspired by those classics. Each wheel has 10 half-round spokes. The gloss-black powdercoat is machined away on alternating spokes and the rim edge to expose the aluminum under the paint.”

A gloss-black finish is also applied to the new cast aluminum oil tank, as well as fork lowers, brake rotors, muffler shields and the handlebar.

“To lower Breakout's overall profile, we placed the speedometer on the handlebar riser,” says Rasmussen, “and topped the fuel tank with a black leather strip that covers the seam, and a chrome-plated pod that's just high enough to conceal necessary wiring and vent lines. The handlebar is a new curved drag bend that which I think feels aggressive when you ride.”

The Softail chassis mimics the clean lines of a vintage hardtail frame, but utilizes rear suspension control provided by coil-over shock absorbers mounted horizontally and out of sight within the frame rails. The Breakout is fitted with ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and the Harley-Davidson factory-installed security system.

Key Breakout Features

• The Twin Cam 103B™ engine with 103-cid (1690cc), counter-balanced and rigid-mounted within the frame, is rated at 95.9 ft. lbs. of torque at 3000 rpm. The engine is equipped with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), and Automatic Compression Release(ACR), and is mated to a 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission.
• The powertrain is finished in black powdercoat with chrome covers and gloss-black shields over chrome dual-staggered mufflers.
• Gasser-style 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels are finished in gloss-black powdercoat with machined highlights; 8 by 18-inch rear and 3.5 by 21-inch front.
• Floating front and rear brake rotors have gloss-black carriers.
• Front and rear fenders are chopped. The front fender location and bracket are specific to the Breakout. The rear fender is shaped and positioned to fit close to the 240mm tire. One-piece forged aluminum rear fender supports are highly polished.
• The front end spreads 49mm forks approximately 1.75-inches wider than previous FX Softail models to allow fitment of a 130mm front tyre. The fork lowers and headlight bucket are finished in gloss black.
• New Single-Rib Cast Aluminum Oil Tank is finished in gloss black.
• A 18.9 litrefuel tank is topped with a black molded-leather strip and a low-profile chrome cover.
• The two-piece seat features a passenger pillion that may be removed without tools for solo riding and to fully expose the rear fender. Laden seat height is 24.7 inches.
• An all-new wide drag-style handlebar is finished in gloss black. The speedometer is mounted on the chrome pull-back handlebar riser.
• Discreet low centre-mount  license plate and combination stop/tail/turn lights leave the wide rear fender uncluttered.
• The glass-filled fuel tank medallions and graphics are exclusive to the Breakout.
• Available solid colors include Vivid Black, Big Blue Pearl and Ember Red Sunglo.
