2013 Harley-Davidson FXSBSE CVO Breakout Review

2013 Harley-Davidson FXSBSE CVO Breakout

Slammed and chopped style goes premium in this all-new CVO motorcycle. From stunning details and finishes to brawny power, the only thing low about this sport custom is its silhouette.

The 2013 Harley-Davidson® CVO Breakout motorcycle is muscle in motion. This new, limited-production Softail® model from Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations combines the unrelenting power of the Twin Cam 110B engine with a level of custom detailing that is unmatched on a production motorcycle. Curbside, the Breakout motorcycle rests with a proud rake and dazzling finish. On the road, the CVO Breakout motorcycle is a chrome-plated fist punching the air with each twist of the throttle.

Harley-Davidson® CVO motorcycles are customized using exclusive components and paint trea ents combined with numerous items from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories. The CVO Program is often used to introduce new custom components and techniques before they are offered as individual accessories.

The Breakout motorcycle is intended to project a tough attitude, according to Harley-Davidson Motor Company Styling Manager, Kirk Rasmussen.

"We begin by stripping the bike down to the bones and building up from there," said Rasmussen. "Stylist, Mark Daniels, penned a tough-looking hot rod concept and we were off to the races. To create a compact, muscular profile we've chopped the fenders to the legal limit so more tire rubber is revealed at both ends of the bike. The same principle is applied to the console, where we shaved it down and used braided steel lines for vent tubes. This gives us a larger canvas for paint and finishes, an essential element of the CVO formula."

The CVO Breakout motorcycle's story begins with its Twin Cam 110B engine, a 110-cid V-Twin that pumps out 112 ft. lbs. of peak torque to give the CVO Breakout motorcycle the best power-to-weight ratio of any current CVO model. The CVO Breakout motorcycle takes production motorcycle paint to a new level of true customization. Two paint schemes feature hand-polished steel sections on the fuel tank and fenders. A third paint option incorporates hand-laid lace stenciling. The amount of manual finishing required to create these painted parts makes each set of bodywork unique.

New polished chrome Turbine wheels are another styling highlight to debut on the CVO Breakout motorcycle. "We gave the Turbine wheel a good deal of drama by pulling the spoke ridges all the way through to the rim, which help make the wheel diameter look larger," said Rasmussen. "The front wheel has 21 spokes. I think the ridges on the rear wheel look a little scary. The dramatic diameter of the 21-inch front wheel with a 130 mm tire and the 18-inch rear wheel with a 240 mm tire give the bike a strong proportional foundation."

Other custom details introduced on the CVO Breakout motorcycle include a wide front end with a mini headlamp nacelle, and a chromed cast-aluminum oil tank. 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. Electronic cruise control, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), keyless ignition, and the Harley-Davidson® Smart Security System are standard equipment on the CVO Breakout model.

 

 

2013 Harley-Davidson FXSBSE CVO Breakout Key Features

2013 CVO Breakout®: This bold new Softail® model is muscle in motion, projecting a tough attitude and boasting the highest power-to-weight ratio of any current CVO model. Taking production motorcycle finishes to a new level, the CVO Breakout is offered in two paint schemes that feature hand-polished steel sections on the fuel tank and fenders. A third paint option incorporates hand-laid lace stenciling. New polished chrome Turbine wheels feature dramatic spoke ridges on the rims. Fenders are chopped to expose the tires. A new wide front end is fully chromed and topped with a new mini-nacelle and chromed headlamp bucket. A chrome fuel tank console has been trimmed so low that braided-steel lines house the exposed tank vent. The CVO Breakout also features a new chrome internally-wired handlebar, an integral riser with a low-mount speedometer/tachometer, chromed cast aluminum oil tank, and leather seating surfaces embossed with a horn-back gator hide pattern. Three color options will be offered.

" The Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110B engine with 110 cid (1,803 cc), counter-balanced and rigid-mounted within the frame, is rated at 112 ft. lbs. of torque at 3 500 rpm. The engine is equipped with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) and Electronic Throttle Control (ETC), and is mated to a 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission.

" The Assist & Slip Clutch Pack provides a slip feature on downshifts to reduce loading of the driveline and improve shift feel, while a new internal design doubles the life of the clutch pack in test cycles. Hydraulic clutch actuation has been updated to reduce lever effort; peak force required is reduced by 10 percent and hold-in force is reduced by 17 percent. Finally, a new clutch lever shape reduces reach and optimizes lever control.

" The CVO Breakout model will be offered in three dramatic custom-colour schemes, each with a Granite powder coat and chrome powertrain.

Black Diamond and Molten Silver with Crushed Slate graphics. This combination features polished steel areas on the fuel tank and fenders that require 10 hand-sanding passes, beginning with 150 grit and finishing with 3,000 grit, and a three-step final-polishing trea ent. This process produces a high-lustre finish with intentional hand-worked marks that make each part unique. The colour elements are then applied, followed by coats of candy and standard clear that let the polished steel shine through. This colour is paired with a black-leather seat.

Hard Candy Gold Dust and Liquid Sun with Pagan Gold graphics. This paint set also features polished-steel sections on the fuel tank and fenders, but the candy clear coat is tinted to give the polished areas the gleaming Liquid Sun tone. Gold Dust is created by applying large metal flake over a black base, and finishing it with the tinted clear coat. This colour is paired with a black-leather seat.

Crimson Red Sunglo and Scarlet Lace with Hammered Sterling graphics. To create a graphic effect on the lower portions of the fuel tank and fenders, Black Candy is sprayed through lace fabric placed over a Silver base colour, and finished with a layer of Scarlet Candy. Because the lace is applied by hand, no two painted parts will have the same exact pattern. This colour is paired with a rich, brown-leather seat.

" Turbine wheels with matching brake discs and drive sprocket are highly polished and chrome plated.

" Front and rear fenders are each chopped to the legal limit of tire coverage. The front fender location and bracket are specific to the CVO Breakout model. The rear fender is shaped and positioned to fit as close as possible to the 240-mm tire.

" One-piece forged aluminum rear fender supports are highly polished. The fender supports and chopped rear fender are four pounds lighter than the forged steel supports and covers used on other Harley Davidson® Softail® models.

" The wide front end spreads the forks approximately 1.75 inches wider than previous FX Softail® models to allow fi ent of a 130 mm front tire. The entire front end assembly is chrome plated, including the nacelle and headlamp bucket.

" The low-profile console tops a five-gallon fuel tank with a strip of brilliant chrome. Two elbow outlets and braided stainless steel lines exit forward from the top of the console to accommodate the tank vent.

" The single-rib cast-aluminum oil tank is polished and finished in chrome.

" The leather seat and pillion in black or brown leather is accented with an embossed horn-back gator hide pattern. The seat and pillion are shaped to provide good lower-back support for the rider. The pillion may be removed without tools to fully expose the paint on the rear fender.

" The chrome handlebar offers a neutral rider position and is internally-wired for a clean look. The integrated chrome riser incorporates a mount for the four-inch combination digital speedometer/
analogue tachometer and LED indicators, which are positioned below the riser.

" The Customer care package includes an indoor/outdoor storage cover with the CVO logo, tool kit, microfibre detail cloth and H-D® jiffy stand coaster.

Exclusive CVO™ Enhancements

All the quality. All the legacy of the Harley-Davidson name. Plus custom touches and performance that distinguish you from every other bike on the road. Sure there's a little vanity. Premium custom. Big, tricked-out wheels. Deep attention to details. The perfect storm of engineering and style you'll only find on a custom machine. And you'll spoil yourself with the accessories—from comfort to electronics to chrome. But the real signature of a Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle is the explosive power and sleek detailing of the huge Twin Cam 110™ with Screamin' Eagle® engine badges. It's custom-built, not just for anyone, but for true connoisseurs of the road.

Premium Hand-Polished Metal Paint

High-impact premium paint and graphics are standard on all our CVO™ motorcycles—but even by those standards, the new hand-polished metal paint with Lace effects on the all-new CVO™ Breakout™ model is something special. The dazzling shine is truly like no other—the hand-worked polishing creates a unique look that speaks authentic custom style. The look instantly draws attention, so don't be surprised when people can't help coming over to see themselves in the finish. It's another Motor Company innovation: exclusive to the 2013 CVO™® Breakout™ model, this is the first time this paint technology's been used on a production motorcycle. With your choice of three exclusive hand-polished color schemes (including a Hard Candy Custom option), your Breakout™ will be an absolute stand out.

Hard Candy Custom™ Paint (Optional)

New for 2013, this metal flake finish recalls the iconic rebel style of ‘70s custom bikes. It’s more than just paint, it’s a shining declaration of independence—bright, bold and unique. The new CVO™ Breakout™ model’s Hard Candy Custom Gold Dust scheme is a mild flake pattern that, laid across the bike’s tank and fenders, looks anything but mild—the shimmering flake on those large, hand-polished surfaces puts a stunning gleam in this “eye candy” treatment. Hard Candy Custom™ paint marks another milestone in The Motor Company’s legacy of innovation. We start with several passes of 200 micron flake over a black base, then clear coat it, hand-lay the graphics, and apply the many layers of clear coat to allow the flake to shine through. It’s a painstaking process that delivers a premium custom look straight from the factory, so you can start flying your colors with no waiting or extra effort.

New Slipstream Collection Controls

The new 2013 Slipstream controls add a touch of top-of-the-line custom to the CVO™ Breakout™ model. With a new design for 2013, the shifter, hand grips, and brake pedal all feature that characteristic modern Slipstream look and quality. It’s premium custom touches like this—stylish and comfortable—that set our Custom Vehicle Operations™ models on a higher level.

Chopped Rear Fender

Low, tight and cut down to sleek minimum, the fender’s chopped styling adds to the CVO™ Breakout™ model’s long, low custom look. And the fender supports are one-piece forged aluminum, polished and chromed for the ultimate in strength, weight-reduction and looks.

Low Front End

We gave the new CVO™ Breakout™ model a lowered, raked front end, and chopped fender that enhance its long, slammed custom look, and a powerful, wide-standing wheel and set of forks that guarantee a solid stance on the road.

Super-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, ultra clean touch of sport custom style that matches the new CVO™ Breakout™ bike's low, long looks.

New Turbine Chrome Wheels

Bring the gleam. With their polished and chromed "Turbine"-style sprocket and rotor, these visually stunning wheels give the bike’s rear a maximum shining metal effect. Newly designed for 2013, they’re the edgiest wheels we’ve ever rolled out, and they're debuting here, exclusively, on the new 2013 CVO™ Breakout™ motorcycle.

Twin Cam 110™ Engine Heritage

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 Twin Cam 110™ 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® 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.

Twin Cam 110™ Engine Innovation

Fire up the Twin Cam 110™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. The colossal 110™ cubic inches provide seemingly endless torque with adrenaline-pumping pull through all six gears. Boasting the largest-displacement V-Twin engine by Harley-Davidson, the new CVO™ Breakout™ model's Twin Cam 110™ engine produces approximately 110 ft. lbs. of torque at 3750 rpm. Six speeds. A strong driveline and a low cruising rpm couldn't feel better.

Pure Harley-Davidson® Styling

Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 110™ with Screamin' Eagle engine badges and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Granite heads and cylinders feature machined cooling fin tips and are highlighted by chrome rocker covers. Exclusive to Custom Vehicle Operations™, the granite powertrain and Twin Cam 110™ badging are unapologetically distinguished. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 110™ engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.

Six-Speed Cruise Drive®

You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine RPM 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.

"Heavy Breather" Performance Air Cleaner

Heads are sure to turn—just before you leave them eating your dust. The beefy, polished chrome-plated elbow, exposed filter and shiny chrome endcap with engraved Screamin’ Eagle® logo adds even more bad-ass brawn to the new CVO™ Breakout™ model’s muscular style, while its massive airflow helps boost even better performance from that big Twin Cam 110™® engine.

Artfully Hidden Technology

Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.

Intuitive Controls

Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on basking in the freedom of the ride.

Tuned to Be Ridden

Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different than any other bike out on the road. There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—it's all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.

Low Seat and Pillion (Solo or Two-up)

Roll and stop with comfort and confidence as you sit slung close to your ride with the road in easy reach of your boots. This two-piece seat-and-pillion saddle sports rich black and brown leather styling with Hornback Gator accents. Together with the new CVO™ Breakout™ model's polished metal paint, the saddle creates a custom style that's unmistakably premium.

New Ergonomic Handlebars & Mounted Instruments

Guide your ride with ease. We've designed the new CVO™ Breakout™ model's handlebars to offer maximum ergonomic comfort, so you can keep clocking the miles without feeling the aches. And with the easy-to-read, backlit 4-inch digital speedo and analog tach mounted on the handlebar riser, you can keep your eye on your MPH without missing what's ahead.

Engine Idle Temperature Management System

Our motorcycles are built to be ridden. A lot. So that means that rider comfort is top of mind. Always. The Engine Idle Temperature Management System (EITMS) feature shuts off fuel to the rear cylinder when the bike is at idle and the engine reaches a certain temperature, so it can cool off as the engine idles only on the front cylinder. Best part, you can easily turn this feature on or off yourself whenever the bike is stopped.

2013 Harley-Davidson FXSBSE CVO Breakout - Press Release

HARLEY-DAVIDSON® CVO LAUNCHES THE NEW BREAKOUT MODEL
Hot-Rod Softail® Model Introduces New Paint Processes and Brilliant Turbine Wheels

CONCORD (August 20, 2012) - The 2013 Harley-Davidson® CVO Breakout motorcycle is muscle in motion. This new, limited-production Softail® model from Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations combines the unrelenting power of the Twin Cam 110B engine with a level of custom detailing that is unmatched on a production motorcycle. Curbside, the Breakout motorcycle rests with a proud rake and dazzling finish. On the road, the CVO Breakout motorcycle is a chrome-plated fist punching the air with each twist of the throttle.

Harley-Davidson® CVO motorcycles are customized using exclusive components and paint trea ents combined with numerous items from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories. The CVO Program is often used to introduce new custom components and techniques before they are offered as individual accessories.

The Breakout motorcycle is intended to project a tough attitude, according to Harley-Davidson Motor Company Styling Manager, Kirk Rasmussen.

"We begin by stripping the bike down to the bones and building up from there," said Rasmussen. "Stylist, Mark Daniels, penned a tough-looking hot rod concept and we were off to the races. To create a compact, muscular profile we've chopped the fenders to the legal limit so more tire rubber is revealed at both ends of the bike. The same principle is applied to the console, where we shaved it down and used braided steel lines for vent tubes. This gives us a larger canvas for paint and finishes, an essential element of the CVO formula."

The CVO Breakout motorcycle's story begins with its Twin Cam 110B engine, a 110-cid V-Twin that pumps out 112 ft. lbs. of peak torque to give the CVO Breakout motorcycle the best power-to-weight ratio of any current CVO model. The CVO Breakout motorcycle takes production motorcycle paint to a new level of true customization. Two paint schemes feature hand-polished steel sections on the fuel tank and fenders. A third paint option incorporates hand-laid lace stenciling. The amount of manual finishing required to create these painted parts makes each set of bodywork unique.

New polished chrome Turbine wheels are another styling highlight to debut on the CVO Breakout motorcycle. "We gave the Turbine wheel a good deal of drama by pulling the spoke ridges all the way through to the rim, which help make the wheel diameter look larger," said Rasmussen. "The front wheel has 21 spokes. I think the ridges on the rear wheel look a little scary. The dramatic diameter of the 21-inch front wheel with a 130 mm tire and the 18-inch rear wheel with a 240 mm tire give the bike a strong proportional foundation."


Other custom details introduced on the CVO Breakout motorcycle include a wide front end with a mini headlamp nacelle, and a chromed cast-aluminum oil tank. 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. Electronic cruise control, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), keyless ignition, and the Harley-Davidson® Smart Security System are standard equipment on the CVO Breakout model.

Key CVO Breakout Model Custom Features

" The Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110B engine with 110 cid (1,803 cc), counter-balanced and rigid-mounted within the frame, is rated at 112 ft. lbs. of torque at 3 500 rpm. The engine is equipped with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) and Electronic Throttle Control (ETC), and is mated to a 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission.

" The Assist & Slip Clutch Pack provides a slip feature on downshifts to reduce loading of the driveline and improve shift feel, while a new internal design doubles the life of the clutch pack in test cycles. Hydraulic clutch actuation has been updated to reduce lever effort; peak force required is reduced by 10 percent and hold-in force is reduced by 17 percent. Finally, a new clutch lever shape reduces reach and optimizes lever control.

" The CVO Breakout model will be offered in three dramatic custom-colour schemes, each with a Granite powder coat and chrome powertrain.

Black Diamond and Molten Silver with Crushed Slate graphics. This combination features polished steel areas on the fuel tank and fenders that require 10 hand-sanding passes, beginning with 150 grit and finishing with 3,000 grit, and a three-step final-polishing trea ent. This process produces a high-lustre finish with intentional hand-worked marks that make each part unique. The colour elements are then applied, followed by coats of candy and standard clear that let the polished steel shine through. This colour is paired with a black-leather seat.

Hard Candy Gold Dust and Liquid Sun with Pagan Gold graphics. This paint set also features polished-steel sections on the fuel tank and fenders, but the candy clear coat is tinted to give the polished areas the gleaming Liquid Sun tone. Gold Dust is created by applying large metal flake over a black base, and finishing it with the tinted clear coat. This colour is paired with a black-leather seat.

Crimson Red Sunglo and Scarlet Lace with Hammered Sterling graphics. To create a graphic effect on the lower portions of the fuel tank and fenders, Black Candy is sprayed through lace fabric placed over a Silver base colour, and finished with a layer of Scarlet Candy. Because the lace is applied by hand, no two painted parts will have the same exact pattern. This colour is paired with a rich, brown-leather seat.

" Turbine wheels with matching brake discs and drive sprocket are highly polished and chrome plated.

" Front and rear fenders are each chopped to the legal limit of tire coverage. The front fender location and bracket are specific to the CVO Breakout model. The rear fender is shaped and positioned to fit as close as possible to the 240-mm tire.

" One-piece forged aluminum rear fender supports are highly polished. The fender supports and chopped rear fender are four pounds lighter than the forged steel supports and covers used on other Harley Davidson® Softail® models.

" The wide front end spreads the forks approximately 1.75 inches wider than previous FX Softail® models to allow fi ent of a 130 mm front tire. The entire front end assembly is chrome plated, including the nacelle and headlamp bucket.

" The low-profile console tops a five-gallon fuel tank with a strip of brilliant chrome. Two elbow outlets and braided stainless steel lines exit forward from the top of the console to accommodate the tank vent.

" The single-rib cast-aluminum oil tank is polished and finished in chrome.

" The leather seat and pillion in black or brown leather is accented with an embossed horn-back gator hide pattern. The seat and pillion are shaped to provide good lower-back support for the rider. The pillion may be removed without tools to fully expose the paint on the rear fender.

" The chrome handlebar offers a neutral rider position and is internally-wired for a clean look. The integrated chrome riser incorporates a mount for the four-inch combination digital speedometer/
analogue tachometer and LED indicators, which are positioned below the riser.

" The Customer care package includes an indoor/outdoor storage cover with the CVO logo, tool kit, microfibre detail cloth and H-D® jiffy stand coaster.

HARLEY-DAVIDSON® CVO OFFERS TWO NEW PREMIUM MODELS FOR 2013
CVO Also Introduces Daymaker LED Headlamp and Vented Wind Splitter Windshield

MILWAUKEE (August 20, 2012) – Four models from Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) take limited-production, factory-custom motorcycles to the highest level of performance, style and exclusivity in 2013. New models include the CVO Breakout , a high-performance Softail® model with exciting new surface finish options and custom details, and the CVO Road King®, fitted with an innovative vented windshield and high-output audio system. Returning for 2013 with new custom features and finishes are the CVO Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® and the CVO Road Glide® Custom.

Serialized 110th Anniversary Editions of 2013 CVO Road King, CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide and CVO Road Glide Custom will also be available, with 110th Anniversary badging and fuel tank medallions, and an exclusive Diamond Dust and Obsidian paint scheme.

CVO motorcycles are designed using premium accessories and paint treatments combined with numerous items from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories. The CVO program is often used to introduce new custom components and techniques before they are offered as individual accessories. Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles are backed by a two-year, unlimited mileage warranty.

All 2013 CVO models are powered by the Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110 V-Twin engine. Rated at up to 122 ft. lbs. of torque, the 110-cid air-cooled Twin Cam 110 is the most-powerful engine offered in a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, and is only available in CVO models. The new Assist & Slip Clutch Pack provides a slip feature on downshifts to reduce loading of the driveline. A new internal design significantly improves the life of the clutch pack in test cycles. Hydraulic clutch actuation has been updated to reduce lever effort; peak force required is reduced by 10 percent and hold-in force is reduced 17 percent. Finally, a new clutch lever shape reduces reach and optimizes lever control. All 2013 Harley-Davidson CVO models also feature electronic cruise control, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), the Harley-Davidson® Smart Security System, and a new indoor/outdoor storage cover with CVO logo.

Harley-Davidson is offering two all-new CVO models for 2013:

2013 CVO Breakout®: This bold new Softail® model is muscle in motion, projecting a tough attitude and boasting the highest power-to-weight ratio of any current CVO model. Taking production motorcycle finishes to a new level, the CVO Breakout is offered in two paint schemes that feature hand-polished steel sections on the fuel tank and fenders. A third paint option incorporates hand-laid lace stenciling. New polished chrome Turbine wheels feature dramatic spoke ridges on the rims. Fenders are chopped to expose the tires. A new wide front end is fully chromed and topped with a new mini-nacelle and chromed headlamp bucket. A chrome fuel tank console has been trimmed so low that braided-steel lines house the exposed tank vent. The CVO Breakout also features a new chrome internally-wired handlebar, an integral riser with a low-mount speedometer/tachometer, chromed cast aluminum oil tank, and leather seating surfaces embossed with a horn-back gator hide pattern. Three color options will be offered. (See separate release for more CVO Breakout details)

2013 CVO Road King®: The first factory-installed Road King audio system includes a 200-watt amplifier and an interface module for an included 8GB Apple® iPod® controlled by buttons on the handlebar. The system drives two 5x7-inch speakers with bridged tweeters located on the saddlebag lids, and two 5.25-inch speakers with bridged tweeters mounted in the fairing lowers. The new detachable Vented Wind Splitter windshield was developed by Harley-Davidson and tested in the Wichita State University wind tunnel to relieve low pressure behind the windshield and significantly reduce buffeting at the rider position. A vane within the vent should be adjusted to match air flow to the rider's height. A low-profile console holds a combination speedometer/tachometer with programmable back-light colors. Other CVO Road King features include a chrome billet-style extended reach heel shifter, Mirror Chrome Agitator Custom wheels, extended saddlebag bottoms with a custom fascia and LED lighting, a new chromed handlebar with an ergonomic bend, and Slipstream Collection hand and foot controls. A new solo touring seat and the removable passenger pillion and backrest have a tuck-and-roll leather insert. A new painting process features hand-finished graphics created with textures and solvents in a multi-step process that results in unique detailing on each motorcycle. Three color options are available, including the 110th anniversary scheme.

Two CVO models return for 2013 with new paint schemes and features:

2013 CVO Ultra Classic® Electra Glide®: This super-premium touring motorcycle is fully equipped and stylishly appointed. New features for 2013 include the chrome and rubber Slipstream Collection heated hand grips, rider and passenger footboard inserts, brake lever pad, shifter and highway pegs and windshield trim. The suspended, dual-control heated, two-up seat and adjustable passenger backrest have a new perforated leather insert. A new chrome billet-style extended reach heel shifter creates more boot room on the left-side footboard. The CVO Ultra is equipped with a high-performance Harman/Kardon® Advanced Audio system that includes BOOM! Audio High Performance BOOM! Bagger speakers. Four new color combinations are available, including the 110th anniversary scheme.

2013 CVO Road Glide® Custom: This distinctive shark-nose bagger now features the Daymaker LED headlamp, and is the first production Harley-Davidson equipped with this very bright and precise headlamp system. The high-output Harman/Kardon® Advanced Audio system is upgraded with a second 200-watt amplifier and a pair of 5x7-inch speakers with bridged tweeters located in the saddlebag lids in addition to 5x7-inch fairing-mount speakers and two-inch dash-mount tweeters. The audio system features CD/AM/FM/WB, an 8GB Apple® iPod® nano located in the right-side saddlebag, and a new, more-sensitive hidden AM/FM antenna located within the fairing. Other new CVO Road Glide Custom features include a smoked Wind Splitter windscreen with a ghosted Harley-Davidson graphic, a chrome billet-style extended reach heel shifter, a low-profile, two-piece seat with diamond pattern leather inserts, a black 1.25-inch handlebar, and Slipstream Collection hand grips and foot controls.
