Harley Davidson FXSB 300x200 Scrutinizing Harley Davidson FXSB Breakout

Its long, low stance and make which focuses most on its main components, the Harley-Davidson FXSB Breakout stands out as a powerful cruiser that will give you the needed riding comfort without necessarily having to use the trendiness trappings. With its new softail to keep it simple, you will definitely count yourself one of the luckiest if you had the privilege to ride on this top racing bike. As a sign of possible emergency of the most styled motor bikes, the subtle style used in this model puts more emphasis on its components.


Harley has for the very first time in the history of motorcycle racing inherited the CVO motorcycles models, one of its own, with a massive production specially designed for a broader demographic. As such, it was not something that came by accident, development of this best racing bike was simultaneous. Breakout, as a name, was inspired by drag racing.

However, when finally H-D decided to launch its first best racing bike in the model of Harley-Davidson FXSB Breakout had one thing in mind. After the Softail, the H-D company had to find ways to close the gap that had been created in its lineup. Models that were very close by then included the FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide, but the need for a softail prompted the development of the breakout model and this also took issue with the market prices as well.

The Engine

The breakout clearly brought the essentials needed for any top racing bike. This is according to the styling Manager attached the Harleys Motorcycle Manufacturing company known as Kirk Rasmussen. With its chrome black engine located at the centre of the motor bike so as to maximize traction, the fenders are definitely sliced off. To give it a more tough and muscular face, a lot of rubber showing was needed. The rather air cooled, counterbalanced and rigid mounted 103B V-Twin enables it to displace 1690 cc as well as pumping out an estimated foot-pounds of 95.5 of torque at only 3000 r m p. It has been fixed to a cruise drive transmitter by the final belt drive making it most appropriate for racing. This allows the disappearance of the muffler shields with only the chromed headers remaining in the event that you squint

As Rasmussen puts it the front (21 by 3.5 inches) and the rear (18 by 8 inches) gasser wheels, best designed for the Breakout model are most inspired by the drag racing wheel design of the 60s and 70s. In this case, each wheel is characterized by 10 semi-circle spokes. So if you are looking for these kinds of wheels, you can easily find them at the Dunlop.
