V2 icon: the ninth Big Twin generation since 1909 has four-valve heads.

Their valve covers quote the 1936 “Knucklehead”.

More experience per kilometer!

The Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout is one of the new Harleys of the 2018 model year. How well the cruiser drives?

This is the executive chair! Anyone who parks this iron does not have to explain anything. These tires alone: ​​A 21-inch wheel rotates at the front, a 240-inch rear roller on an 18-inch rim at the rear. Any questions? As with the equally heavy Fat Bob (306 kilograms), the tank holds the Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout just 13.2 liters. Only there are no instruments on him. Instead, there is an LCD speedometer and indicator lights in the handlebar clamp. The on-board computer reports the gear engaged, fuel level, engine speed, range, time and two trip masters on all Softails.

What can the new Harley tourer do?

114er pushes mightily

The pulsation of the 114 V2 comes across with the Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout in the purest, most unfiltered manner compared to the other new Softail models. The 114 pushes mightily. In jackknife position you take on the world – legs and arms stretched far forward, the wide drag style handlebars on high risers. The rear flats in the 66.5 centimeter deep seat. There are more curves in the backcountry of Barcelona than in the entire US state of Wisconsin – home of Harley-Davidson. Anyone who invites to a test drive here is sure of their cause.

Grip is okay in dry conditions

The six hundredweight iron swings and rolls surprisingly nimbly through the many bends. Of course, you have to lay out radii well, with a steering head angle of 56 degrees (!), An immense 145 millimeter caster and a wheelbase of almost 1.70 meters. Once you’ve got the hang of it, you’re in a good mood to spur the Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout. Yes, the fat 240 mm skin stands up on bumps and needs more inclination at the same speed. But the Michelin Scorcher’s grip is okay on dry asphalt. Only Fat Boy and Breakout carry the newly designed swing arm in the wide “Wide” – instead of the narrow “Narrow” version.

More experience per kilometer

The braking power of the Nissin stoppers with just one disc at the front is mediocre. The clearer feedback when braking is due solely to the improved fork. As with all Softails, Showa’s “Dual Bending” technology is intended to optimize the damping behavior over the entire range of compression and rebound. Seems to work: Hard to believe what the new spring elements can handle. The motto of the very emotional Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout: more experience per kilometer!
