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 ofthe 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.
