The 2013 Harley-Davidson® Breakout® motorcycle is a long and low-slung Softail® model with distinctive finishes and specific components. The Breakout® model features a wide 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.
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 rigid-mounted, counter-balanced powertrain creates a solid connection between the rider and the power that moves the motorcycle, enhancing the emotional experience of riding.
