  • 8 months ago
How much power does the 2023 Harley-Davidson Breakout 117 produce? We place the American brand’s Milwaukee-Eight 117 V-Twin on the Cycle World dyno to find out.


For 2023, the Harley-Davidson Breakout is back in The Motor Company’s cruiser lineup with a larger engine. Previously fitted with the Milwaukee-Eight 114ci, the Breakout has now returned to the US market as a 117.

The 2023 Harley-Davidson Breakout 117 features the Milwaukee-Eight V-twin powertrain, which is currently H-D’s largest powerplant until the recently announced 121 leads the displacement race. The Milwaukee-Eight 117 is a counterbalanced 117ci (or 1,923cc) air-cooled V-twin with four valves per cylinder, a 10.2:1 compression ratio, and 103.5 x 114mm bore and stroke.

On our Cycle World Dynojet 250i dynamometer, the Harley-Davidson Breakout 117 produced an impressive 94.2 hp at 4,790 rpm and 118 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 3,250 rpm. With massive amounts of torque available right off idle and an extremely linear power curve, the 2023 Harley-Davidson Breakout 117 can effortlessly cruise up the boulevard or rip like a dragster from one light to the next.
