2014 Breakout Video


Actually looks nicer in the video. I don't care for what they did to those rims but the paint actually looks pretty nice in comparison to the harely page pictures. Of course I want a daymaker at some point but very satisfied that I did not wait for a 2014. The seat looks great also, thought it look blah in the pictures.

Does anyone know if the air cleaner is "improved" or just a different model for looks. It looks shorter.

Call me lazy,but thats just WAY too much chrome to keep clean.not a huge fan of the blue color either.I think it looks like something from the early 2000's that people would buy then never ride...

Honestly I find the chrome is way easier to clean than the aluminum I had on my old heritage. That s-1000, or is it 100? stuff really just makes it spray on, rinse off then hit with the leaf blower. Then again, I even have a chrome helmet.....

It is easier to clean... I think it would have been better with black cases though.. the silver doesn't go well with me....

To each his own! I do like what you have done to yours by the way. Also, neve thought I would miss those skirted fenders but that front one kicks up all kinda crap too. I just found the videos to look way different than the pictures on harley's site.

I like most everything about the bike. In a New York minute, I would jump on it as a town bike. Not sure what the 110 comes with for dialing it in, but I would spend a little coin to get the performance and sound just right, pipes etc. Some removable bags if the guards don't look too bad. Perhaps an engine guard. The saddle looks good, but you never know until you sit on it, and put on some miles.
