    2017 Breakout purchase

    My local dealer has offered me what seams a great deal on a new breakout,
    As this is my first Harley( have ridden a few) I would be greatful for some help, both good and bad points of the breakout and on buying new,
    He has also offered stage 1 for next to nothing.

    Hi, the breakout is,a beautiful bike without a doubt. Never ridden one, but there but from various comments on the forum, their handling is a bit different .

    I only know of a couple of guys on here that have or have had the breakout...give this thread a little time and I am sure they will give you an opinion which will be more valid than mine..what I would ask is what pipes and filter etc are they offering in the stage 1???

    My mate has one. He only uses it for gentle cruising so it doesn't see many miles. He doesn't use it for any long trips or for blasts on twisty country roads as in his words, it handles poorly and has limited ground clearance (don't they all?). He's keeping it though as he loves the styling, even though he's just bought a stage 1 tuned "Zero".

    Good looking bike, shocking handling. Seeing far too many of them out there in the last 2 years and they are the goto for many, myself included, as they look cool and feel gnarly but as a rider and customiser I have moved on from it now having seen a sub culture in HD become the norm.

    Give it another year and all the financed ones from new 3 years ago will flood out the market and prices will drop a lot. They have been a very good seller for HD and I am glad I owned one and you should give it a try but there are far better longevity machines out there depending on your riding. For example if you potter around cafes on a Sunday and the odd night of the week its perfect, for many its the only time they will ever scrape a peg but it becomes tedious after a while when you want to get twisty
