There’s another three-wheeling vehicle available on the market.
Polaris has spilled more details on its Slingshot, a three-wheeler motorcycle powered by a 2.4-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine with 173 hp and 166 lb-ft of torque. The powerplant is mated exclusively to a five-speed manual transmission. That might not sound like much, but keep in mind that the Slingshot only weighs 1,725 lbs.
Sporting a wide track of 69.1 inches, the Slingshot has a ride height of just fives inches. Up front is a double-wishbone suspension setup with coilovers while steering is power assisted. Options for the Polaris Slingshot include a waterproof infotainment system with navigation and Bluetooth and a backup camera. Standard features include LED tail lights, projector beam headlights, ABS, electronic stability control and a two-year warranty.
The Polaris Slingshot will start from $19,999 for the base model while the Slingshot XL will run $23,999.
