Tampa Bay Harley-Davidson® is the premier Harley-Davidson® dealership serving Brandon Tampa Lakeland Wesley Chapel and the surrounding areas, and our team is thrilled to introduce the new 2023 models, which include the all-new Breakout®. Fans of the Breakout® will remember that Harley-Davidson® discontinued the Breakout® in America after an eight-year run despite continuing to sell in other markets. While it was unclear at the time why Harley-Davidson® retired the Breakout®, we know now that it wanted to take it back to the drawing board in order to make it accessible to a wider range of riders.
Harley-Davidson® Breakout® 117
If your idea of the perfect cruiser is a low and long chopper, you now have a fantastic option with the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Breakout® 117 that is now available at Tampa Bay Harley-Davidson®. This model is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight® 117 V-Twin engine. This is an air- and oil-cooled motor and the most powerful engine that Harley-Davidson® offers direct from the factory. There is headroom there as well, and you can claim that additional power by installing the Screamin’ Eagle® Stage IV kit.
What’s New for 2023
The 2023 Harley-Davidson® Breakout® 117 is an all-new model or a continuation of a model after a several-year hiatus depending on how you want to look at it. We think that the changes are substantial enough to call this a new model but one that will appeal to fans of the old Breakout®. The most notable change from a performance perspective is the Milwaukee-Eight® 117 engine, which is now indicated in the model name. For previous iterations, Harley-Davidson® went with the 114. The brand also made revisions to the handlebars and grips to make the Breakout® more comfortable overall but also more accessible to the average rider. It has also introduced new style options with even more chrome.
Color & Design Choices
One of the core design goals for the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Breakout® 117 in Tampa was to lean into the classic Harley-Davidson® aesthetic. Harley-Davidson® has eliminated many of the black accents from the previous design and replaced them with chrome. Vivid Black is the default color scheme and highlighted with Harley-Davidson® orange. The Black Denim option is similar, but the black is more muted, and the orange accents are replaced with various shades of gray. The Baja Orange design is the one Harley-Davidson® has been using in marketing for the Breakout® 117 and perhaps the boldest option. There is also Atlas Silver Metallic, which is a gray-themed motif accented with blue striping on the tank.
Performance & Characteristics
The Breakout® 117 has a 117-cubic-inch engine. As mentioned, you can upgrade that to a 131-cubic-inch engine, and our shop serving Brandon Tampa Lakeland Wesley Chapel can handle that upgrade for you as well. This is a traditional low and long chopper. That means that the profile is low, the foot controls are mounted in a forward position and the seat is oriented so that you’re stretched out. A passenger seat is included as well.
This Is the Right Bike For
Choppers were going out of style there for a bit but are now coming back in a big way. Owning a bike like this somewhat of a life style choice. It has a style that turns heads and is perfect for cruising the strip at night. It’s also a blast to ride, and with the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Breakout® 117 in Tampa, there have been significant updates that not only make it more comfortable to ride but for longer periods and over longer distancers as well.
Other Customization Options
Harley-Davidson® offers a traction control system as an upgrade, and if you want that enhancement, you need to select it as a factory option. As you’d expect, there is already excellent support for the Breakout® in the H-D® catalog. You can really dial your Breakout® in to you with various seating options, handlebars, grips, foot controls and much more.
