The Harley-Davidson Breakout is a beautiful bike, and no one will argue that fact. This is a powerful, responsive machine that gives you everything you’ve come to expect from Harley and then some. Keep reading to find out ten more interesting things about this outstanding machine.
1. It has gauges that are easy to read
Depending on the way a bike is designed, the gauges can sometimes be hard to read. If you can’t read them, there’s really no point in having them there. In this particular case, Harley-Davidson has done the work it needed to do in order to make sure that you can easily read all of the gauges. Everything is right there in your forward field of vision and even when you’re riding over rough terrain, you can still see everything clearly, thanks to new technology that keeps the gauges steady at all times.
2. It gives you the information you need when you need it
The gauge cluster on this bike is different. You don’t have to look in several different places in order to get the information you need. Instead, everything is clustered together. With a single glance, you can find out which gear you’re in, how fast you’re going, and how much fuel you have left.
3. The rear tire is much larger than most
If you like motorcycles that have large rear tires, then you’re going to like this one. It’s inspired by those used on drag racing bikes, and at 240 mm, it’s easily among the widest tires available on any production bike on the market.
4. There are two power options
When it comes to the amount of power you need, you have options available to you here. You can choose either the 107 or 114 displacement, all so you can have the bike you’ve always wanted without being forced to give up anything.
5. It still has that sweet Harley-Davidson sound
One of the best things about Harley-Davidson motorcycles is the sound. This bike has all of the modern technology that you might expect for a motorcycle that’s built in this day and age, but Harley-Davidson did everything it could to make sure that you would have that sound every time you rev up the engine. SInce this is one of the reasons people decide to buy a motorcycle from Harley-Davidson, it can as good news for fans that have come to love their Harleys.
6. The throttle is designed to respond quickly and smoothly
Nothing is more frustrating than hitting the throttle, only to realize that it lags behind or engages with a distinct thud. This not only makes your overall experience less enjoyable, but it also makes for a potentially dangerous ride when you’re trying to merge into traffic and your bike doesn’t respond as you expected it to. You don’t have to worry about either one of these things here, as the throttle responds almost immediately and it does so smoothly, each and every time.
7. It has more than enough power to get the job done
This bike has 109 ft-lbs of torque. That’s more than enough power to get you where you’re going, no matter where that might be. It also means that you’ll be able to easily keep up with anyone you decide to go riding with, and you won’t have to keep the RPMs turning at maximum speed in order to do it.
8. It weighs just the right amount
The bike is heavy enough to be a force on the road, but it’s not so heavy that it’s difficult to control. In fact, at 648 pounds, it weighs a near-perfect amount to give you something solid underneath you without making you feel as though you’re trying to manhandle a behemoth the entire time you’re riding.
9. It comes in five different colors
If you like to have some choices at your disposal, you have plenty of colors to choose from here. The bike comes in blue, silver, cherry, and two different colors of black.
10. It looks more like a lean machine full of muscle than a typical motorcycle
If you love the idea of riding a bike that looks great, this one is for you. It has that dedicated vintage look that Harley-Davidson is so well known for, yet it’s an entirely modern motorcycle that can easily hold its own with anything else that’s currently on the market.
