New Harley CVO Softail Springer 2009  2010 Reviews and Specs

The 2009 version uses the Rockertail frame and chrome-plated wide swingarm introduced in the 2008 Rocker where a form-fitting fender is mounted directly to the swingarm over the rear tire. The Rocker was already equipped to run on a 240mm rear tire, so the CVO Springer rolls on the same. Offsetting the new fat rear end is a 130mm front tire mounted on an 18-inch Road Winder wheel. The single disc up front has a new four-piston brake caliper with a chrome forged mount. The front and rear brakes include Road Winder rotors and the calipers have the same granite treatment as the engine. Even though it has a 240mm rear tire, it doesn't handle like a wide-tired bike. The CVO Springer Softail has a tighter rake than the Rocker, giving it a better feel up front, and the retuned rear suspension isn't as unforgiving as my initial experience aboard the more rigid Rocker. Potholes still impact the Springer fork hard and it doesn't quite match the solid feel of the CVO Fat Bob's standard fork, but that's a given for a Springer. And even though the four-pot setup on the front brakes is new for the model, the single disc doing the duties up front is a little soft. Again, it just didn't quite match up to the CVO Fat Bob's dual arrangement
