In addition to building Indian and Victory motorcycles, the flexible factory assembles a new three-wheeled product called the Slingshot, which is a cross between a motorcycle and a roadster. Assemblers will also soon begin building a new all-electric motorcycle called the Empulse TT.

Polaris has confirmed that its revolutionary three-wheel motor-vehicle, the Polaris Slingshot™, is making its European debut in Q4 2015.

Slingshot has been honed for the European market by U.S manufacturer Polaris and will offer petrol-heads a completely new motoring experience.

A recognised leader in the global powersports industry for over 60 years, Polaris designs, engineers and manufactures high quality all-terrain vehicles (ATV), including the Ranger and RZR side-by-side vehicles, snowmobiles, as well as Victory Motorcycles and the iconic Indian Motorcycle marque too.

Taking this extensive powersports experience, Polaris is writing a new chapter with Slingshot, delivering an entirely new on-road driving experience.

It’s an innovative three-wheel vehicle with a high-strength steel space frame, a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine and sport-tuned suspension with an open cockpit.

Slingshot Brand Manager for Polaris EMEA, Dario Baraggia, firmly believes that customers in Europe can expect to have a truly breathtaking experience from Slingshot ownership. He says: “Slingshot offers European customers something truly unique. It has exhilarating performance in a package that receives head-turning looks wherever it’s driven.

“The USA has already discovered the thrill of Slingshot, so much that it is currently sold out with production filling back orders. We predict a similar trend here in the EU and will therefore open a pre-order process to give the first customers a chance to secure the first units coming to the EU.”

Polaris Slingshot™ features include:

2.4-litre Double Overhead Cam Engine

5-speed Transmission

High strength steel space frame

Lightweight aluminium swingarm

Carbon fibre reinforced drive belt

Low weight

Low centre of gravity

Antilock Braking System

Electronic Stability & Traction Control

Forged Aluminium Roll Hoops

Distinctive Bodywork & LED Lights
