If ever a bike screamed ‘I’m outta here’, this is it. The Breakout® is long, low and raring to go. Designed with a keen eye on the Gasser drag bikes from the 50s and 60s, it has a wide rear section with lowered shocks, and a chopped back fender so the people you pass get a fine view of your 240mm wide rear tyre.
The thick, wide handlebars that were designed specifically for this bike put the rider in an aggressive forward-reaching riding position. It has a muscular presence in every respect, and meticulous engineering that includes a high performance clutch, sporting hydraulic actuation, and an all seeing Quartz Halogen headlight pointing the way.
To freedom, where better…?
The 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 103B™ 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.
Rigid-mounted, air-cooled, 1690 cc Twin Cam 103B™ counter-balanced engine with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), Automatic Compression Release (ACR), rated at 95.2 ft. lbs. peak torque at 3000 rpm and 6-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission.

Breakout to the New
Don’t just break the mold—forge your own with the latest chapter in Harley-Davidson’s legacy of freedom. A premium custom cruiser inspired by the classic Gasser drag bikes of the ’50s and ’60s, the Softail® Breakout® model rolls with modern power, top-of-the-line treatments and lots of low-down menace. Big wheels, big paint, big chrome, all wrapped in a refined style—the Breakout® model is a true attention-grabber with a ride that’s been painstakingly engineered for fun whether you’re winding mountain roads or cruising the strip. It may be low-profile, but the Breakout® motorcycle always makes a big, bold statement.
Low Muscular Profile
With its big, bold stance, the Breakout® motorcycle makes a powerful impact even standing still. Its pure, clean lines, low-slung profile, stretched stance, big wheels and chopped fenders all shout premium custom, solid power and “look at me” attitude, even as its performance makes it your choice who gets to stare and for how long before you disappear.
From wheel to wheel, we designed the Breakout® model with a hard eye for excellence: we forged it from top quality materials and crafted it with a dedication to perfection—from paint scheme and chromed-out styling to its slammed design, balanced ride and engine performance, we sweated every single fit, finish and tolerance of this perfect beast, because when you rule the road, there’s no place for second best.
Powerful Front End
The Breakout® model comes on strong with thick, wide forks, chopped fender and that wide-standing big 21-inch, 3 1/2-in wide Gasser wheel raked out there, classic dragster-style. This solid, muscular road stance is matched by neutral and balanced handling, so your ride is as smooth and clean as your looks are mean.
Fat Rear Tire profile
Big is the name of the game for the Breakout® model, and they don’t come bigger than this massive 18-inch, 240mm rear tire. It’s the widest tire we’ve ever put on a product motorcycle and, wrapped around that Gasser rim, it’s the perfect embodiment of the classic drag-bike heritage pumping through this ride.
Exclusively designed for the Breakout® motorcycle, these rims call back to the Gasser dragsters of the ’50s and ’60s while defining the next generation of custom style. Big and bold with their alternating spokes, these wheels shout strength and durability, while their alternating glossy Vivid Black and machined finishes on every other spoke deliver eye-catching visual impact.
Low, tight and cut down to the legal limit, the Breakout® model’s fenders add to its stretched and slammed custom style. We chopped them to the legal limit to show off those huge muscular tires and Gasser rims. Plus, the fender supports are one-piece forged aluminum, polished and chromed for the ultimate in strength, weight-reduction and looks.
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 touch of ultra clean custom style to the Breakout® motorcycle’s aggressive stance.
All this power and style doesn’t come at the expense of comfort and convenience. Feast your eyes on this 4-inch digital speedometer, mounted on risers to be close to your field of vision. It offers speed readout, along with fuel gauge and gear indicator
Six-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission
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 turnover 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.
Twin Cam 103™ 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 103™ 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® and Twin Cam 96® 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 103™ Engine Innovation
Fire up the Twin Cam 103™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn’t feel better.
Twin Cam 103™ Engine Power
Live your ride to the power of Twin Cam 103™. The air cooled Twin Cam 103™ Harley Davidson® engine delivers more stump-pulling torque, while its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction. It’s a performance punch you’ll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or just catching eyes as you cruise by—all under that signature Motor Company rumble. And it comes at lower cruising rpm, so you ride more smoothly, with less engine vibration and better highway fuel economy.
Black and Chrome Engine Styling
Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 103™ engine and there’s no mistaking its roots. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers, this is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won’t find from any other motorcycle company. And true to the rest of the Softail® Breakout® model’s style, its engine treatment is also a masterpiece of machine art—the Vivid Black and Chrome finishes create a stark, sharply defined pattern of gleaming light and dark: glossy black muffler covers and oil tank cover, gleaming chrome pipes and rocker covers.
You may be cruising with swagger, but you know safety counts. This sophisticated, factory-installed ABS gives ‘stopping power’ a double meaning. You’ll turn heads with clean, streamlined design. But more importantly, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike’s going to behave when you need it.
3-in-1 Stop/Turn/Tail Lights
These chromed 3-in-1 lamps complement the Breakout® model’s overall stylish, powerful profile while their state-of-the-art technology packs tail lights, turn and stop signal technology into each sleek, minimalist bullet.
New For 2015Front Brake System
A new for 2015 front brake system on the Softail® models this year delivers a 40 percent reduction in the amount of lever force required at peak braking. The handlebar master and front cylinders have been restyled. There’s a new 4-piston fixed caliper with 32 and 34 mm pistons, premium caliper piston coating to minimize initial displacement and a larger 300 mm rotor. It all adds up to more stopping power with less effort.
Balanced Suspension & Handling
The Breakout® model may be a big bold bike with a powerful stretched stance, but it’s definitely not just for show. We carefully balanced and damped its suspension to give it a neutral feel—even with those big, wide tires—and engineered it for lightness, for an excellent power-to-weight ratio. The bottom line? A smooth, fun ride whether roaring from stoplight to stoplight or winding along country roads.
Designed exclusively for the Breakout® model, these low and wide handle bars put you in an aggressive reach-forward riding position. And we routed their wiring internally, keeping a minimalist look that goes with the overall clean custom styling.
Low Seat and Pillion
This two-piece saddle doesn’t just look good, it feels great. Whether you’re riding with a passenger or not, you’ll roll and stop with confidence as the low bucket holds you slung close to your ride with the road in easy reach of your boots. And when you’re riding solo, that detachable rear-pillion also gives lower-back support for even more comfort, mile after mile.

The paragraph descriptions for the pre-owned bikes are generic, what the factory used when the bikes were new so they might not be precise. The bike may have been modified. Take them with a grain of salt. Same with the specifications, those are stating how the bike was spec’d stock, when new, not necessarily as it is at this very moment. Our salespeople will be glad to answer any detailed questions should anything in the generic descriptions be confusing. Also, there are over 30,000 prices and loads of specifications on this website, we do not warrant that is entirely error free. Thanks, - Barnett Harley-Davidson
