2017 Harley-Davidson Breakout®

/

Big wheels, big paint and classic drag-bike attitude meet modern refinement. Then we stuff it brimful with raw power.

There’s nothing like a fistful of American street muscle.

Feast your eyes on the Breakout® motorcycle’s glittering High Output Twin Cam 103B™ engine, waiting to send mountains of torque to that meaty 240mm rear tire. The profile is low, stretched out and undeniably aggressive. We top it with drag bars. This one lives to defy gravity and everything else.

Authentic Styling

  • POWERFUL FRONT END: The Breakout® model comes on strong with thick, wide forks, chopped fender and that wide-standing big 21-inch, 3 1/2-in wide Gasser wheel raked out there, classic dragster-style. This solid, muscular road stance is matched by neutral and balanced handling, so your ride is as smooth and clean as your looks are mean.
  • BLACK TURBINE WHEELS WITH MACHINED HIGHLIGHTS: The Breakout® model rolls on custom black Turbine wheels with machined highlights. These are true custom wheels with bold and aggressive style. Born from the original CVO Breakout, these wheels leave no doubt about the heritage of muscle at the core of this motorcycle. Strong, bold and unmistakable in their visual impact.
  • SLAMMED CONSOLE: It's not just slammed, it's the tightest console we've ever smacked onto a tank. And with its integrated decorative vent and electrical lines, its sleek profile adds a distinctive touch of ultra clean custom style to the Breakout® motorcycle'€™s aggressive stance.
  • RISER-MOUNTED SPEEDO: All this power and style doesn't come at the expense of comfort and convenience. Feast your eyes on this 4-inch digital speedometer, mounted on risers to be close to your field of vision. It offers speed readout, along with fuel gauge and gear indicator.
  • FAT REAR TIRE PROFILE: Big is the name of the game for the Breakout® model, and they don't come bigger than this massive 18-inch, 240mm rear tire. It's the widest tire we've ever put on a product motorcycle and, wrapped around that Gasser rim, It'€™s the perfect embodiment of the classic drag-bike heritage pumping through this ride.
  • CHOPPED FENDERS: Low, tight and cut down to the legal limit, the Breakout® model's fenders add to its stretched and slammed custom style. We chopped them to the legal limit to show off those huge muscular tires and Gasser rims. Plus, the fender supports are one-piece forged aluminum, polished and chromed for the ultimate in strength, weight-reduction and looks.
  • 3-IN-1 STOP/TURN/TAIL LIGHTS: These chromed 3-in-1 lamps complement the Breakout® model's overall stylish, powerful profile while their state-of-the-art technology packs tail lights, turn and stop signal technology into each sleek, minimalist bullet.
  • SIDE-MOUNTED LICENSE PLATE: We keep the look of the Breakout® model's signature rear clean and minimal with this side-mounted bracket, so nothing gets in the way of the showing off that big rear tire and tight fender.

Comfort

  • DRAG-STYLE HANDLEBAR: Designed exclusively for the Breakout® model, these low and wide handle bars put you in an aggressive reach-forward riding position. And we routed their wiring internally, keeping a minimalist look that goes with the overall clean custom styling.
  • LOW SEAT AND PILLION: This two-piece saddle doesn't just look good, it feels great. Whether you're riding with a passenger or not, you'll roll and stop with confidence as the low bucket holds you slung close to your ride with the road in easy reach of your boots. And when you're riding solo, that removable rear-pillion also gives lower-back support for even more comfort, mile after mile.

Handling

  • FRONT BRAKE SYSTEM: The front brake system on the Softail® models delivers a 40 percent reduction in the amount of lever force required at peak braking. The handlebar master and front cylinders have been restyled. There's a 4-piston fixed caliper with 32 and 34 mm pistons, premium caliper piston coating to minimize initial displacement and a larger 300 mm rotor. It all adds up to more stopping power with less effort.
  • BALANCED SUSPENSION & HANDLING: The Breakout® model may be a big bold bike with a powerful stretched stance, but it's definitely not just for show. We carefully balanced and damped its suspension to give it a neutral feel- €”even with those big, wide tires- €”and engineered it for lightness, for an excellent power-to-weight ratio. The bottom line? A smooth, fun ride whether roaring from stoplight to stoplight or winding along country roads.
  • ELECTRIC THROTTLE CONTROL: The bareknuckle styling of the Breakout® motorcycle gets even cleaner with the addition of electronic throttle control. Take a look. There'€™s no cable cluttering up the handlebars. Plus, the electronic set-up makes it a simple no-fuss-no-muss procedure to install Harley-Davidson® cruise control.

Iconic Engine

  • HIGH OUTPUT TWIN CAM 103B™ ENGINE: The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the High Output Twin Cam 103B™ engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward. And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution® and Twin Cam 88® and Twin Cam 96® engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909 and the proud heritage that comes from a century's worth of commitment to life on two wheels.
  • BLACK AND CHROME ENGINE STYLING: Feast your eyes on the High Output Twin Cam 103B™ engine and there's no mistaking its roots. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers, this is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. And true to the rest of the Softail® Breakout® model's style, its engine treatment is also a masterpiece of machine art—the Vivid Black and Chrome finishes create a stark, sharply defined pattern of gleaming light and dark: glossy black muffler covers and oil tank cover, gleaming chrome pipes and rocker covers.
  • HIGH OUTPUT TWIN CAM 103B™ ENGINE POWER: Asking riders if they’d like more power is like asking them “Would you like more beer in the pitcher?” when they've reached the end of a long day tearing up the roads. Everybody wants it, and the High Output Twin Cam 103B™ engine is 103 cubic inches of Harley-Davidson V-Twin you can rely on to deliver. The airbox increases intake airflow and the cam optimizes phase and duration. The result: better low-end torque and faster 60 to 80 mph 5th gear roll-on. In the tradition of the legendary Harley iron that came before it, the High Output Twin Cam 103B™ engine is once again raising the bar for the feeling an engine delivers to the rider.
  • HIGH OUTPUT TWIN CAM 103B™ ENGINE INNOVATION: Fire up the High Output Twin Cam 103B™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and 6-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm that couldn't feel better.
  • 6-SPEED CRUISE DRIVE® TRANSMISSION: You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The 6-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. It's a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you're opening up the road ahead.
