2013 Harley-Davidson FXSB Breakout

The New Harley-Davidson Breakout Belongs to the Street.

Aggressive Styling and Gritty Attitude from a Premium Softail® Chopper

The 2013 Harley-Davidson® Breakout® motorcycle is an urban prowler, a bike ready for a midnight ramble to the roadhouse or a rib joint rendezvous with the crew. Green light? Crack the throttle to deliver a muscular dose of American V-Twin torque and etch the asphalt with a fat rear tire. The Breakout will be long gone, along with its rider's inhibitions.

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 103B™ 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 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."

The Gasser wheels 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 available with ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and the Harley-Davidson security system as a factory-installed option.

The bike by itself looked ok but soon as I saw the second pic with the typical wannabe goofy lookimg tool on it, the entire human/bike combo looked so ridiculous I had no choice but to rate it fail. :banging:

And here I was just about to say that this is a Harley that I can see the attraction to...

Not awesome, but Cool for sure...only because you can get the same style and attitude for less from Japan...

Later.

I voted awesome, there are a few things I might change, but that would be easy.

Great job TMW on getting it on the cool wall so quickly.

UPDATE: Stats and information update, plus another 7 new desktop sized photos as well for you to enjoy: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... eakout.htm

Also I guessed wrong as I originally thought the Breakout would be part of the Dyna family but it is actually part of the Softail one, hence the higher price but beefier model appearance. See the rear tire!

Working on Saturday morning to bring you the latest information and specifications on the Breakout. :D

Enjoy the new info!

Mike

Apart from the rakish front end, it's just another HD cut from the same old and tired mold. Fail and nothing but fail votes until they come up with something really new and innovative.

I could see how Harely-Davidson sticks to a design formula, but that formula really works well to be honest. But I do see Harley-Davidson now taking in ideas from other manufacturers rather than sticking hard and fast to the same "basic designs" they used to. The V-Rod really opened up The Motor Company to creative ideas and we are starting to see more fruits of that labor.

The new designed models coming out today from H-D look nothing like they did just 10 years ago (remember H-D is a slooooooooooooow changer!).

Look at the Breakout vs a 2003 model:

2003

2008

2013

Those are some forward thinking designs of their year as well.

Mike

It's kind of pretty, I'll give it that. But it's just another parts-bin special from the MoCo. Original? Not. :sleepy:

Uncool it is.
