Following years of various new American motorcycle companies emerging to form a nucleus of a burgeoning cottage industry of Harley clones and customs, in 2008, Harley Davidson revealed its own new custom-style bike, the ‘Rocker’ and the ‘Rocker C’, a pair of revolutionary models with an almost 37 degree front end rake to confront the countless choppers that were now ubiquitous in the landscape of the American V-twin market. Harley Davidson preferred to refer to the Rocker as a ‘factory custom’ built bike and not a chopper, probably because of the associated ‘outlaw’ baggage and more often than not association with true harsh and uncomfortable rides accompanied with poor handling that the latter term comes with, but once most people saw the motorcycle on the street they called it what it was – a professionally built and refined example to be sure, but still a chopper!

Experience will inform any body that it is easy to fall in love with a chopper’s bad-ass style and muscular charm until you try and twist the beast through its notoriously punishing ride quality, vibration, lackluster handling and reliability that turns most chopper riders dreams into nightmares! No such experience to be had with Harley’s Rocker and Rocker C and whilst Harley admitted that the ‘Rocker’ was indeed extreme enough to get noticed and referred to as its chopper and taken for such a bike, it was also built by Harley’s engineers as a proper chopper (and most likely the most over-engineered chopper ever built) to be driven regularly and even on long trips with all of Harleys renown refinements, performance, durability and build quality.

In fact it was priced so high due to its high end build that it is said that it ultimately proved uneconomical to continue its production past 2011. With its glammed-out custom style and low seat, high handlebars and a long fork with the front suspension reclined at a shallower angle than on typical motorcycles and with most unessential parts ‘chopped off’, it would be hard to disagree that it deserved its association and was named perfectly after its perfect ‘rock star’ image!

Basically the bike was a standard softail given the chop, drop and roll treatment, a classic faux hardtail rear end,’Rockertail’ rear fender mounted directly to the swing arm, a fat 240mm rear tire with the brake light nicely integrated into the LED rear turn signals with a lightweight magnesium license plate assembly in order to save weight, a stretched fuel tank floating over the motor and with the front end boasting a 36.5 degree rake and a wheelbase that stretches over 69! Indeed what stands out most is its lack of clutter and bundles of wiring that make most choppers look sloppy, all of which are nicely tucked away inside the Rocker’s bars, it sports the small bullet-shaped headlight and teardrop gas tank up front and the wide fender that hugs the wide 240mm fat rear tire in typical chopper fashion.

On most motorcycles the rear wheel moves up and down relative to the fender but as the ‘Rocker’s’ fender is mounted to the motorcycles swing arm, the wheel and the fender move together and the rear spring and shock absorber are hidden like a classic ‘hardtail’. The throttle action with the sequential port fuel injection is flawless even when cold and once on the highway the smooth thick waves of the V-Twin via the six speed cruise drive transmission and reduced effort clutch make for effortless speeding and passing abilities.

Despite a weight of over 700lbs and its long wheelbase, steering and cornering clearance remains adequate for most normal riding situations compared to the weeble-wobble antics that plague most piecemeal choppers! In fact, apart from obviously some minor countersteering than you would be accustomed to in any other FSX series softail, due to its long wheelbase, it rides very much like any other softail Harley. The forward controls are all easy to reach and the grips are placed comfortably in front of you.

It’s almost hard to believe that the Harley Davidson Rocker C wasn’t continued after 2011, after only 3 years (2008-11), it was discontinued. Introduced in 2007 as an ’08 model, the Harley Davidson Rocker had so much going for it that it’s almost hard to know where to begin. Great paint work and complimentary styling that lets the engine flow with the bodywork in a seamless, smoothly transitioning ride and a bike that is about as visually stunning as motorcycles come.

As with all new bikes, there was a shakedown period to work out the bugs, but after that initial three year period, by 2010, the Harley Davidson Rocker C was upon us and the good folks at Harley Davidson have crafted a gem. There are numerous new components on the glitzier 2010 Harley Davidson Rocker C which had most of the same parts from the original ‘Rocker’ now covered in chrome and with the primary difference between the ‘Rocker’ and the ‘Rocker C’ being in fact aesthetic, with the majority of the ‘Rocker’s’ hard parts being covered in a satin stainless paint that gave the bike a raw industrial look, whereas the ‘Rocker C’ received ghost flames on the tank and fenders and replaced the satin with tons of chrome and a color matched swing arm, finned oil tank and other small parts; the horseshoe oil tank returned, as did the bullet headlamp, the staggered shorty exhaust and the very cool and quite unusual and unique trick two-in-one saddle seat that changes quickly from solo riding to two-up. It offers the looks of a solo saddle but quickly manipulates using its folding components into a pillion seat for when needed.

Power for the 2010 Harley Davidson Rocker C is provided by the air cooled Twin cam 96B engine that displaces 96 cubic inches and at 3,000 RPM produces 92.195 lb/ft of torque. Fed with electronic sequential port fuel injection, the 2010 Harley Davidson Rocker C is capable of delivering fuel economy numbers of 35 miles per gallon on city streets, and an impressive 54 miles per gallon on the highway.

A six speed transmission is standard again this year, with the new Helical cut fifth gear designed to improve the sound of the transmission. Braking is accomplished with four-piston binders up front and two-piston binders out back and at a running weight of 716.9 pounds, the 2010 Harley Davidson Rocker C can come to a stop in a hurry.

We’ll never know the real reason why Harley discontinued the Rocker, but our guess is that there are many parts on the Rocker made specifically for the Rocker and no other Harley and that therefore production costs outweighed the profit margin. Parts versatility plays a big role in manufacturing and the Rocker and the Springer don’t exchange as well as some of the other models.The Rocker was priced at $17,295 and the ‘Rocker C’ at $19,495, which although almost $10K less than most other customs that prompted Harley to build the Rocker C in the first place, was something like $3500 more than a Road King and $4500 more than the Wide Glide if we recall correctly. Either way, after sending the floating-rear-fendered Rocker to Softail heaven two years ago, the Harley-Davidson Motor Company decided it again needed to fill the ‘premium long custom’ gap in its lineup with the closest existing model being the FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide, which was after all a ‘Dyna’ and not a ‘Softail’ and whose base price is ‘only’ $14,999 and so this year (2013) they came out with the ‘Breakout’ as the Rocker C’s long overdue replacement .

Obviously never dropped or abused – a true garage Queen if ever there was one and still as showroom new, this bike has been ridden for only 577 miles since new and has had a recent 500 miles full service from Harley, if any Harley-Davidson is as much fantasy as motorcycle, this 2010 Rocker C takes the dream of riding a custom chopper to the next level!

This highly striking example in Flame Blue Pearl Deluxe is obviously mechanically and cosmetically as new with only some 577 original miles! You will obviously look long and hard to find a finer or lower mileage example of this classic and collectible no longer built motorcycle available anywhere else!
