I got to test ride and review the 2023 Harley-Davidson Breakout when I was at the 120th Anniversary celebration in Milwaukee, WI. I share my thoughts and opinions in this video to help you make a decision on whether this is the right bike for you. (see video below)
The 2023 Breakout is equipped with the 117 CI Milwaukee-Eight engine that produces 101 Horsepower and 123ft. lbs of torque. When you roll that throttle, it'll definitely throw you back in the seat.
The Harley Breakout is more of a chopper-style motorcycle with a wide 240mm rear tire, 21-inch front wheel, 18-inch rear wheel, and drag bars to further help with the chopper look.
So, this bike is in the Harley “cruiser” category and after riding it, I would not consider it for any longer distance rides. It's definitely not a touring motorcycle. It's suitable for shorter day rides or ripping around town. With the wide rear tire, it's not very responsive when transitioning from side to side. But, for such a wide rear tire bike, it performed fairly well.
The Harley Breakout is all chromed out and you can get it in 4 different color options.
I really enjoyed riding the Harley Breakout around Milwaukee for 2 days. It's a blast ripping around and giving throttle blips. I didn't see many other Breakouts at the 120th Anniversary and this bike certainly turns heads when you ride by or park it. It is just beautiful to look and as long as you know what this bike was made for, you'll be super happy with it.
I couldn't help but think of all the customizations you could make on this bike to make it your own.
