Harley-Davidson unveil CVO Pro Street Breakout

Published: 27 January 2016

Harley-Davidson have just unveiled this mean looking CVO Pro Street Breakout, alongside a new Low Rider S, both of which are expected to be on sale at your local Harley dealer by mid-Spring this year.

Harley’s Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) department have been responsible for some truly nuts specials over the years, but this is one of their most tasteful. The Pro Street Breakout is a limited-production model that introduces a new, darker look, and which is steeped in drag-racing attitude

“The Pro Street Breakout represents a new dimension of CVO motorcycles,” said Harley-Davidson Styling Director Brad Richards. “The Pro Street Breakout takes its cues from the streets and reflects our own changing tastes. It still delivers the depth of detail and value and the bragging rights the CVO customer expects, but gets there in a different way. Its colours may be subdued but also have incredible depth. We’re developing alternate finishes to bright chrome – brushed and anodized surfaces and tinted clear-coat, for example. The Breakout really lent itself to this new styling direction.”

New finishes include Smoke Satin Chrome, and Scorched Chrome, which plates the Aggressor custom wheels. Restyled derby and timing covers have a new, mechanical look, while sheet metal is finished in solid Starfire Black or two-tone White Gold Pearl/Starfire Black, each with a single hand-applied graphic stripe flowing along the tank and rear fender to reinforce the performance theme.

That performance comes from the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110B engine – the most-potent Harley-Davidson production air-cooled engine. To extract maximum performance the engine is fitted with black blunt-cut mufflers, an open-element Screamin’ Eagle Heavy Breather Elite intake, and a high performance hydraulic Assist & Slip clutch. It also comes with a new 43mm inverted fork gripped in a robust three-bolt triple-clamp, and has the added stopping power of dual front disc brakes with floating discs, and ABS as standard. The stiff front end and 19-inch front wheel enhance agility, while the rear end gets a massive 240 section tyre.

Other styling features include a trimmed front fender, blacked-out Airflow Collection accessories on hand and foot controls, black Profile custom mirrors, and a low-profile console with smoked braided vent lines. Electronic cruise control and the H-D Smart Security System featuring a new hands-free integrated security and locking fob are also standard equipment on the CVO Pro Street Breakout.

The CVO Pro Street Breakout model will cost £19,995.
