Polaris Slingshot Detailed in New Video

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.

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.

    I don’t see any motorcycle in that… the real question is, how many lateral Gs can it pull?

    Also, that’s a really tame engine for something that looks so racy. If it actually were a motorcycle, I would expect 300+ HP from that displacement. Motorcycles engines have been making 150 HP/liter for 20 years now.

    While the engine is junk, that’s probably one of the reasons it’s such a cheap vehicle for that segment. Looks so sweet, I can’t wait to see and test one…
