If you have always yearned for a sports car or a motorbike, then how would you like cross between both? That’s what the Polaris Slingshot SL looks like – a combination between the front end of super sports car and the back end of a motorbike. This boy’s toy is super easy to drive, giving you a true open air ride with the manoeuvrability of a bike.

The Polaris Slingshot trike has recently hit the market, creating both confusion and awe. With no doors or roof, but with two bucket seats, steering wheel, gears and brakes, it drives like a sports car, but feels like a motorbike. It also comes with some high tech safety features, including disc brakes with ABS, traction control, electronic stability control and three point seat belts.

Technically, the Polaris Slingshot SL is a trike that thinks it is a sports car and with a rear wheel driven powerful engine, along with a sports car front end grip, this is a boy’s toy that offers a serious amount of fun.


Let’s look at the specs of this awesome trike

If you want to turn heads, then the Polaris Slingshot SL does the job in spades. It not only looks marvellous, but it comes with a lot of great features that turn a drive into a serious ride.

How about waterproof bucket seats that are really comfortable? Or a 6 speaker sound system, Bluetooth connectivity and a reversing camera? With all of these features, you can’t help but feel you are in a sports car, when you know that just isn’t so!

Your new Polaris Slingshot SL comes with 18” aluminium front wheels and a 20” rear wheel. It is available in a variety of awesome colours – Orange Madness, Turbo Silver, Sunset Red and Black Pearl, and you can add additional features such as a wind deflector and removable T-top panels that include tinted windows.

With all of these different features, you can appreciate why people get really confused with this trike. So let’s take a look at some more specs:

How does the Polaris Slingshot feel to drive?

Well, if you are looking for heart pounding exhilaration, you can’t go wrong with this reverse trike. The 2.4L 4 cylinder engines delivers 173 horsepower and with its optimised weight distribution, sport tuned double wishbone suspension and coil-over gas filled shocks, the Polaris Slingshot lives up to its name on corners.

The traction control keeps an eye on the rear wheel’s speed, so if you start spinning too much, it automatically applies the brakes to the front wheels, brining you back into alignment. This doesn’t destroy your fun however, it simply allows you to corner safely like a pro, especially with the wide front wheels that grip the road.

The Polaris Slingshot’s open cock pit and dynamic performance gives you one of the most exhilarating rides of your life. Sitting only 5” off the tarmac and with a 360 degree view, your adrenaline is already high, even before you start your engine. Without a doubt, there is no motorbike or sports car on the market, in this price range, that can give you such an adrenaline pumping and heart stopping ride.
