Harley-Davidson Breakout

The Harley-Davidson Breakout is a performance-centric model that serves as H-D’s two-wheeled stoplight burner. Built on the Softail platform, the Breakout carries an engine from the middle or top of the available range to give it an edge over its fellow Softails. A whopping, 240 mm rear tire provides an uncommonly-large contact patch that helps convert the engine’s power to forward acceleration. As an essential ride, it carries minimal weight from non performance-oriented components and sports ABS protection as the only safety electronics to be found.

2018 - 2020 Harley-Davidson Breakout

2018 - 2020 Harley-Davidson Breakout

Now with new engines, new chassis, and a whole new attitude

Once again, Harley-Davidson takes what’s old and makes it new again with its revamped-in-2018 Softail lineup. The drag-tastic “Breakout” is one of the models that made the jump and carried into 2020. Harley offered this bobber-burner with the 109 pound-foot, Milwaukee-Eight 107 and the Mil-8 114 that boasts a total of 119 pounds o’ twist last year, but sticks to the 114 for 2020. The ground-up Softail-family rebuild contains myriad changes from the remarkable to the mundane that go way beyond a handful of re-arranged trim packages. This is a re-invention of the whole range with capabilities meant to offset the loss of the Dyna family, and technology more in line with the current industry standards. We’re talking a renewed focus on the Softails as H-D’s sole (or should it be soul?) cruisers.

Thunderbike Customs Unveils First MY18 Breakout

Sexy First Custom On The New Softail Line

Thunderbike Customs of Hamminkeln, Germany, has long been a favorite among the European artists whose medium of choice is American iron, so imagine my delight when I discovered that it has released a brand-new model based on Harley-Davidson’s revamped Softail platform. Not just any Softail either, but the drag-tastic Breakout no less. My previous favorite was the “Fresh Out,” a kind of trippy paisley cruiser that was also built on the Breakout, but I’ve only just glanced at the newest effort and already I see some really cool stuff. Is it enough to win me over? That remains to be seen, so let’s dive right in and check out what those crazy Germans have been cooking up over there.

2016 Harley-Davidson CVO Pro Street Breakout

2016 Harley-Davidson CVO Pro Street Breakout

Harley-Davidson’s Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) program has been hard at work churning out models with the toppest-of-the-shelfestfeatures they can cook up. All that R&D isn’t wasted on the premium models though, as frequently technology pioneered in the CVO program makes its way through the Rushmore bikes and on down the line to the less-expensive models. H-D’s newest CVO release is a direct assault on the American muscle-bike market, and it cuts a mean figure with its raked front end and massive V-Twin engine. Introducing the FXSE CVO Pro Street Breakout, a model packed with CVO and Screamin’ Eagle yummy goodness as it rolls off the floor ready for stoplight-burner action. While Harley markets the V-Rod as its “performance line,” this Breakout definitely qualifies for that category as well, albeit with a more traditional look and DNA that goes back to the classic dragster/gasser era. Join me while I take a gander at this latest creation out of Harley’s CVO division.

2015 - 2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout

Harley-Davidson has a reputation for incorporating modern technology with classic design elements from the past, even embracing custom looks that never saw a showroom floor, and the Softail Breakout does not disappoint.

The engineers borrowed from the custom “Gasser” look of the 1950s and 1960s when setting up this sled, then they packed it full of CVO-inspired innovations to ensure that the performance is up to date. Back in the day, Gassers were customized drag bikes and this bike pays tribute to its roots while maintaining the performance standards demanded by its customer base.

Harley Softail Breakout vs the Vulcan 900 Custom

Rigid-looking frames are nothing new, and many manufacturers have followed Harley-Davidson into this cruiser/dragster sub-genre. Kawasaki is one such competitor, and its entry for the 2015 model year is the Vulcan 900 Custom. Since it so closely resembles the H-D Softail Breakout, I wanted to see how these two stacked up against each other. Let’s take a look, shall we?

More on Harley-Davidson Breakout

The Breakout carries genetic markers from H-D’s own storied history with references to America’s old-school custom culture. Bobbed fenders and blackout paint contribute toward that end, as do the raked-out forks. To keep the profile clean, the factory mounted the license plate on the left-side fender strut, and the taillight is a narrow LED lightbar.

As a performance machine, the Breakout carries a powerful Big-Twin from the mid-range of the current engine design. Keeping weight down is a priority and the Breakout typically weighs a tad over 650 pounds soaking wet. Admittedly, that’s still a relatively heavy bike, but it has the rich torque and beefy rear contact patch to come out of the hole like a scalded dog. Clean, muscular lines and an essential, no-frills build are both hallmarks of the Softail Breakout.
