About the Harley-Davidson Breakout 114 FXBRS
The Harley-Davidson Breakout is a long, kicked-out, dragster-style cruiser motorcycle with a fat 240mm-wide 18-inch rear tyre. It has obvious Harley-Davidson style everywhere you look.
The 2018 model got the updates to the Softail frame and the updated Milwaukee-Eight engine that give the Breakout 114 better handling and more power.
The Milwaukee-Eight 114 ci engine is an 1868cc air-cooled V-twin. It puts a measured 78 hp at the rear wheel (per Cycle World), but the bags of torque tell a better story. The drivetrain is via a five-speed gearbox and a low-maintenance belt drive (you just have to check and adjust the tension periodically, and not clean it regularly like you would a chain).
There’s a single front disc brake on the Breakout 114, which at least helps you enjoy that big front wheel aesthetically. ABS is standard.
The Breakout 114’s frame is 65 percent stiffer and has half the components of the outgoing Breakout, which helps both improve handling and reduce the weight by 35 pounds (16 kg). Even for a relatively heavy bike, that’s no small feat.
The Breakout 114 has a “form over function” geometry, stretching you out like a parachute. Coupled with the large front wheel and fat rear tyre, handling can be a little awkward — so this isn’t really a bike you would comfortably commute on unless you were head-over-heels in love with the style. Some are, but many move on to other Harley-Davidsons.
One interesting improvement in the 2018+ Breakout 114 is the suspension. There’s a single rear shock with a hand adjuster at the rear, which means you can dial in your preload in a jiffy without any special tools.
At the front, the fork is a Showa Dual Bending valve fork. It’s lighter weight, and gives a plusher ride than the previous Breakout.
The tank is the only part of the 2018+ Breakout that might spoil the party. With only 3.5 US gallon capacity (13.2L), this is more of a short-distance brawler than a long-distance tourer.
