Project Cobalt Storm is our design concept on how to make the Harley-Davidson Sportster even more minimalistic than our Ivory Comet café racer (#ProjectIvoryComet), give you more reason to ride, and the itch to ride just by looking at it. With the Cobalt Storm, the styling needed to be timeless as possible without adhering to trends. We want something you will choose to ride more and further everyday, and take it for some light off-roading just because you can.
With this idea in mind, we found that it will be cool by adding tracker influences for an upright riding position and nubby tires to achieve some off-road capabilities. This gives us the performance of a café racer without the discomfort of a slouched position and more reasons to ride. But if that’s the main desire, the handlebar and tires can be swapped for the complete café racer ride.
