Polaris unveils Slingshot 3-wheeler

Polaris, the company reknown for ATVs and snowmobiles, has revealed the Slingshot, a road-legal 3-wheeler vehicle – homologated as a motorcycle – focused on offering a unique driving experience.


The Polaris Slingshot is powered by a 2.4-liter GM Ecotec delivering 173 hp and 225 Nm of torque, driving the rear wheel via a five speed manual transmission.

The vehicle has an extremely low stance: it is 3,800 mm long, 1,960 mm wide and has a height of 1,318 mm, while the ground clearance is just 5.0 inch/127 mm.

Thanks to the overall weight of 1,700 lb/ 770 kg and the sporty suspension setup with front double wishbones, the Slingshot promises exciting handling and a unique open-air driving experience.

The body is limited to the essentials, with no cabin, no windscreen, no doors: the surface treatment uses sharp, aggressively-defined lines, well-suited for this kind of vehicle.

The announced pricing is very interesting, ranging from $19,999 to $23,999 – in the range of super sports bikes.
