Polaris has unveiled the highly anticipated Polaris Slingshot, an awe-inspiring 3-wheel roadster. Slingshot is powered by a 2.4 liter dual-overhead cam engine and a 5-speed manual transmission. It features a high strength steel spaceframe, a lightweight aluminum swingarm, and a carbon fiber reinforced drive belt.
With a dry weight of less than 1,700 lbs., a very low center of gravity, and an engine that produces 173 horsepower, Slingshot delivers heart pounding acceleration and astonishing cornering power. Slingshot has advanced motorcycle features such as electronic stability and traction control, 3-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, LED taillights, forged aluminum roll hoops, and 3-point seat belts. Slingshot can also be personalized with premium accessorie: larger tires with forged aluminum wheels, media console, windscreens, and vehicle covers.
Slingshot is offered in two distinct trim levels. The base Slingshot ( $19,999 USD ), features titanium metallic paint, 17 inch lightweight alloy wheels upfront, and an 18 inch wheel in the rear. The premium model called Slingshot SL ( $23,999 USD ), features red pearl paint, larger 18 inch forged aluminum wheels upfront and a 20 inch wheel in the rear, and a blade windscreen for wind protection. It also features a media console with a 4.3” LCD screen, back-up camera, Bluetooth integration, and a 6-speaker audio system. Both trim models will be available this fall at Polaris Slingshot dealerships across the United States and Canada.
