|Overall Value||No Ratings|
When you take a look at the 2009 Rocker C you notice that at first glance is almost indistinguishable from the standard Rocker. Truth be told, there really isn't a significant level of difference between the two bikes.
Both have sport front fender, staggered Shorty exhaust system, and innovative rear fender attached to the rear swing arm the gives a tire hugging bobber appearance. They share their low profile chrome console, and the stainless steel pullback handlebars as well.
The major differences between the two Harley-Davidson Softail models is that the Rocker C incorporates a hidden seat which allows for a second passenger to tag along. Simply lift off the solo seat and the passenger pillion folds out over the Rockertail rear section for surprisingly comfortable two-up riding. More styling differences to the Rocker C include that the finned aluminum oil tank, frame and swing arm are color-matched to the sheet metal, which features flame graphics.

Like on all veritable custom bikes, you get forward-mounted pegs and low seats although, in this case, the handlebars don’t require that much stretching. The 36.0 degrees and 6.20 inches rake and trail between the front fork and frame might not be ideal for taking turns aggressively, but it provides this bike with an aggressive touch which is, interestingly enough, enhanced by the bike’s simplicity. It’s about stripping the thing down to the individual elements, but you’d fall short of the mark if you were simply to say that you simply get a pair of custom wheels and a big motor in between them.Both share the 96 cubic-inch Harley-Davidson engine that is rigid mounted to the frame and coupled to the standard 6-speed transmission. The 87.90 ft lbs of torque at 2,750 rpm that this motor develops proved more than enough for these unique Harley-Davidson motorcycles and fairly light bikes and the six-speed gearbox allowed for a relaxed and economic cruising pace down the highway (around 54 mpg).
Alternative paint styles set the Rocker C apart from its twin as well. Color choices for this bike include: Vivid Black, Flame Blue Pearl, and Crimson Red Sunglo.
