If you’re idea of cruiser perfection is a lean and mean dragster, let the team at Tampa Bay Harley-Davidson® introduce you to the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Breakout® 117. The Breakout® has a long history in the Harley-Davidson® lineup. The most recent version was built on the Softail® chassis and featured a Milwaukee-Eight® engine. It debuted in 2012 but was retried for the U.S. market after the 2019 model year. This is the return of that bike but reimagined in a number of exciting ways.
What’s New on the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Breakout® 117
The Breakout® 117 is a new model but does share much in common with the Breakout® that was retired after the 2019 model year. This model is still built on the Softail® platform, for instance. The biggest fundamental difference is that this new version is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight® 117 engine, which is currently the most powerful engine that Harley-Davidson® offers on a cruiser.
The key features that the typical Breakout® fan in near Brandon Lakeland Bradenton are going to care about are the enormous acceleration and torque that this model delivers. Another notable feature is that the Breakout® has a thin 21-inch tire up front but a much thick 240mm tire out back.
Engine — Mechanical
Every Breakout® 117 available to Tampa Bay Harley-Davidson® customers in and near Brandon Lakeland Bradenton has the Milwaukee-Eight® 117 engine. This engine makes an impressive 101 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque, and while the torque tops out 3,500 rpm, a significant amount of it is available to you just after idle in order to deliver the torque and iconic Harley-Davidson® rumble you expect.
Ample mid-range torque is made available to the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Breakout® 117 in Tampa via a high-performance heavy breather that also helps give the Breakout® its dragster look and feel. The exhaust is a 2-into-2 staggered. An anti-lock braking system is standard, and a traction control system is available.
