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

Dear Slingshot dealer,

Thank you for your continued support and patience as we worked diligently to resolve Connecticut state licensure requirements. Our goal has been to get Slingshot owners on the road in Connecticut as soon as possible. Please find below an important licensure update. We look forward to partnering with you to grow a successful Slingshot business.

We are pleased to announce that on Friday, June 5th, Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy signed a bill allowing the Polaris Slingshot to be registered and operated as an ‘autocycle’ in the state of Connecticut. The new bill will take effect July 1st, 2015.

Below is an overview of bill:

 Senate Bill 936 was sponsored by the Joint Transportation Committee

 Vehicle type: Autocycle

o "Autocycle" means a motor vehicle that meets the requirements of a motorcycle under 49 CFR Part 571

o Does not have more than 3 wheels in contact with the ground

o Is designed to be controlled with a steering wheel and foot pedals for acceleration, braking, or shifting

o Has a seat or seats that are fully or partially enclosed and in which the occupants sit with their legs forward

o Is equipped with safety belts, in accordance with section 14-100a, for all occupants

 Titling: An autocycle is considered to be a motorcycle

 Operation: Automobile driver license (Class D)

 Insurance: Same requirements as two-wheel motorcycles

 Helmets: Same requirements as two-wheel motorcycles

Registrants will receive a motorcycle license plate, but can operate Polaris Slingshot with an automobile license. Additionally, our recommendation is that all Slingshot drivers and passengers should wear a helmet while operating the vehicle at all times.

We thank you for your patience as we worked towards this resolution. Please contact your DSM with any additional questions.
