2016 Polaris Slingshot SL LE Review

2016 Polaris Slingshot SL LE is a 3-wheeler and has a reverse trike and the ol’ tripod. The three points make a plane, but it isn’t clear whether Polaris will be able to convince the bureaucrats of the state that this machine fits into the motorcycle family.

Indeed, the Slingshot has three-point belts, waterproof seats, and forged aluminum roll hoops. The 2016 Polaris Slingshot SL LE has five-speed manual transmission and a steering wheel, with reverse. Resembling the Saturn Sky and Pontiac Solstice, the Slingshot makes a peek 166 pound-feet of torque and 173 horsepower. From its front seats forward, one will feel as if they’re riding a Mad Max’s Saturn Ion.
