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!

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.
Always ask why.

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.

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

Yeah, but Mike compare it to the 2006 Kawasaki Mean Streak...there's more than a slight resemblence...to me anyway.

Harley makes nicely crafted bikes, but cutting edge they are not! And the V-rod...that's been on the market now for over a decade, they need to move quicker!

Later.

That is true, in fact, it's one of the things I hinted at with the "H-D getting inspiration from other manufacturers" line rather than sticking to one style of design. The more I look at it from my own reply above, the new Breakout looks a lot like a Rocker in many ways, but just better looking to me overall.

I like it, as usual too pricey for what you get in my opinion. Reminds me somewhat of a Yamaha Raider. I also would like for harley to come out with something a little different v4?

I like the sound of a Harley, but to get it, you sacrifice performance and fuel-efficiency by default. On the whole, I'm just not a fan of Harley-Davidsons, but I get why another person might look at/ride a bike like this and think the world of it. ...I'm just not going to vote.

I did a PDI on a vivid black FXSB at work today. It's a beautiful motorcycle from any angle, and it does what it was designed to do extremely well. It's not the kind of bike that makes me want to trade in my VRSCF, but that doesn't make it any less awesome.

It seems like every time a Harley-Davidson is featured here, people moan and cry about a perceived lack of innovation from the motor company. I'm willing to bet that the people who make those comments have never owned or ridden a Harley-Davidson, and have no experience working on them.

Some people voted cool or awesome without having seen or ridden one either. It's just an opinion on whether you think a bike is cool or not.

I get it. Harley's just aren't some people's cup of tea. That being said, this is one of the most comfortable bikes that I have ever ridden. Not really fond of the stock exhaust that they go with but I realize that they do it to meet emissions standards.
