We're confident that both will be highly received by the true Harley-Davidson riders in Qatar who appreciate motorcycles that embody the true essence of the brand.”
“The 2013 Harley-Davidson® Breakout® motorcycle is a bike ready for a midnight ramble to a roadhouse get-together with the crew with a lot of rubber to show a tough, muscular look; whereas the new Street Bob® Special Edition is upgraded with a 1690cc engine to deliver that unmistakable Harley-Davidson rumble and an unrivalled street appeal. We can't wait to see our riders enjoying another superb experience from their favorite brand.” Kelly added.
The Harley-Davidson Owners Group (H.O.G.®) Qatar Chapter were recently hosted for a Barbecue courtesy of the Grand Hyatt hotel in Doha. Additionally, Harley-Davidson Doha has lately received the brand's official Retail Environment Group plate turning the company into the only official and approved Harley-Davidson dealership in Qatar and following the Harley-Davidson Strategic Growth Market Award received by the local dealership at the MENA Tak-Dear Awards for the year 2012.
About the Harley-Davidson® Breakout®
The 2013 Harley-Davidson® Breakout® motorcycle has been designed to deliver a muscular dose of American V-Twin torque and etch the asphalt with a fat rear tire.
With authentic swagger that turns heads in traffic and a proud stance certain to draw a curb-side crowd on bike night, the Breakout is presented as a premium model in its segment with distinctive finishes and specific components not available on other Harley-Davidson bikes. Long and low-slung, the Breakout features a 240mm rear tire visually balanced with thick forks and chopped fenders, while a shaved tank console and a drag handlebar keep the profile low. A Twin Cam 103B™ powertrain and other components are trimmed in gleaming chrome and gloss-black paint. The black and chrome engine visually pops out of the center of the bike, and then to maximize the impact of the tires, the fenders are chopped.
The motorcycles' wheels are inspired by the drag racing wheels from the 1960s and ‘70s classics. Each wheel has 10 half-round spokes. The gloss-black powder coat is machined away on alternating spokes and the rim edge to expose the aluminum under the paint.
About the HARLEY-DAVIDSON®STREET BOB® SPECIAL EDITIO
Street Bob® - now joined by a Special Edition that packs even more Restyled for 2013, the Harley-Davidson® Street Bob® is a stripped-down and rowdy bobber based on the Harley-Davidson® Dyna® platform that appeals to riders who appreciate the pure essence of motorcycling; a powerful V-Twin engine at the heart of a bike with simple eye-catching styling that carries only the most essential equipment.
The new Street Bob® Special Edition is upgraded with a 1690cc engine to deliver that unmistakable Harley-Davidson rumble. It was embellished with distinctive two-tone scallop paint and steel laced wheels with attention-grabbing red rims to deliver a bike that stands out by its looks just as much as its sound. The Street Bob® Special Edition delivers that high-end bobber look and features straight out of the crate, such as ABS as standard equipment.
The Street Bob® is crafted for the owner who would order a muscle car with the biggest engine and no radio. As part of this restyle, Harley-Davidson cleaned off the rear fender, taking out the battery box trim, and bolted on a classic oval air cleaner cover. The goal is to create an elemental Big Twin that a customer can define as his own.
The defining elements of the Street Bob are retained for 2013's Special Edition – a solo seat, chopped rear fender, and mini ape-hanger handlebar to give this motorcycle an unmistakable profile when it comes to power and style.
