2013 Harley-Davidson Breakout Photos / Pics / Images / WallpaperThe prime riding season bookends for the stateside cruiser community are Daytona Bike Week in March and Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August.
Every year, thousands of passionate motorcyclists descend on each area, with a bulk of these riders on Harley-Davidson motorcycles.Privy to this, The Motor Company had launched its 2013 Harley-Davidson Breakout at Daytona Bike Week last month.The motorcycle launched was the OE version of the CVO Breakout, an expensive model that was released last summer with a $26,499 base price.The OE Breakout, which carries a base MSRP of $17,899 in Vivid Black, arrives with 103B counter-balanced V-Twin engine that produces 95.5 ft. lbs. of torque. Like other 2013 Softails, the 103 c.i. (1690cc) engine is hooked to a 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission, and features Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) and Automatic Compression Release (ACR) for easy starting.Styling is key, the Breakout featuring a low-slung design with thick forks, chopped fenders, and a 240mm rear tire. Other highlights of Harley’s Breakout are 10-spoke Gasser wheels, which hail from the 1960s Gasser drag cars, a low 24.7-inch seat height and removable passenger pillion, and various gloss-black finishing pieces, such as the lower forks, brake rotors, thick 1.25-inch handlebars, and muffler shields.Attached above is a photo gallery of all studio shots of the 2013 Harley-Davidson Breakout.

KTM RC 390 and Gordon McCall of Quail Motorcycle Gathering
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the new KTM RC 390. The entry-level KTM has always been an impressive motorcycle that has sold extremely well, however the factory has now taken the bike to another level, with top-spec features that are typically found on flagship machines. Clearly KTM has realized that even smaller engined machines should have high spec suspension, brakes and electronics packages. Nic tells us how well the new RC 390 is equipped, and what he thought of riding the smaller displacement rocket.
In the second segment I chat with automotive and motorcycle industry icon, Gordon McCall. Gordon is the Director of Motorsports at the Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel Valley, California.
This weekend of Saturday May 14th sees the annual Quail Motorcycle Gathering re-start after its Covid-forced hiatus, and having attended every one of the previous Motorcycle Gatherings, personally I’m very happy that the event is back on the schedule. Gordon chats about the event and a little of what’s happening this year. It’s a great event and if you feel like a trip to the gorgeous Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, you’ll get to meet Gordon, Roland Sands, and of course a large number of stunning motorcycles too.
From all of us at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
