MILWAUKEE - It’s been only a bit more than a week since the Breakout was unveiled at Daytona Bike Week and now Harley-Davidson has let drop a big addition of accessories for the new mid-year 2013 model. The load of new kit will also fit the 2013 CVO Breakout model.

The lineup features the following:

The Breakout Sundowner solo seat has a deep-bucket design and generous padding for long-distance comfort. The dished shape reportedly provides rider back support, and the wide profile minimizes pressure points.

It’s styled like the OE Breakout seat with a textured vinyl inlay and Harley-Davidson medallion insert. For a two-up ride, combine the solo seat with the matching detachable Sundowner passenger pillion, available separately.

Next up is the Breakout Reduced Reach solo seat. This saddle positions a rider with a shorter inseam in a confident relationship to the ground and to the hand and foot controls. The tapered nose is said to bring the rider’s legs together for an easier reach to the ground at a stop, and a stepped profile provides back support and keeps the rider from sliding backwards during acceleration. This seat is styled like the OE Breakout seat with a textured vinyl inlay and Harley-Davidson medallion insert.

Out front there’s the Breakout Reduced Reach handlebar, that’s shaped to provide a balance of pull back and width to place the rider closer to the controls in a comfortable, upright position.

When combined with the OE Breakout curved risers, the Reduced Reach handlebar provides an overall pull back of 7 in. This 1.25 in.-diameter handlebar can be internally wired. (continued)
