"We start by refining the bike to the end, then we rebuild it". This quote from Kirk Rasmussen, the director of style for Harley, reveals how much this new Breakout wants to mark the spirits and make fans of the genre feverish. Very long, superbly equipped, sparkling and provocative, this softail is close to a work of art. Moreover, having passed through the workshops of Custom Vehicle Operations, the Breakout could only be inflated with pride to show itself in all its superb.
He exudes strength and style. He has muscle, and he doesn’t hesitate to show it. Behind the Heavy Breather Performance air filter horn is the current largest H-D engine, the 1803cc Screamin’eagle twin. It is the 110B version, that is to say equipped with balancing shafts, which will take care of moving these 317 kilos of steel and character. Around him and his shine is chrome galore and a selection of beautiful pieces. To believe that each copy is unique, straight out of a preparation workshop. Ultra-short mudguards, very reduced instrumentation, a saddle with tribal motifs: the Breakout is as dry as an athlete.
Turbine rims are formidable. Its front wheel looks huge, thanks to the 21 very thin rim sticks. The rear is just as intimidating with its monstrous 240mm faceplate. The wide front end has a mini headlight nacelle and a chrome-plated cast aluminum oil tank.
A real hot-rod for the tough guys, the CVO Breakout is as vindictive as the late Rocker C, but with more conformism than this one. And like any CVO, he will sell his skin dearly (both literally and figuratively). The attack rate scratches the bank account by 29,300 euros. Standard equipment such as ABS, cruise control, keyless start and HD start system nicely complete the endowment but are just trinkets against the spectacular style of the Breakout.
