    Limited Edition White Pearl SL Debuts at 2016 Chicago Motorcycle Show

    MINNEAPOLIS, MN (February 12, 2016) – Polaris Slingshot is broadening its color palette with the introduction of the new 2016 spring line-up. Consumers at the 2016 Chicago Motorcycle Show and the 2016 Chicago Auto Show will be able to see the new line-up first hand, including a new Limited Edition White Pearl SL. This new model showcases powder coated red accents, an interior lighting kit and blacked-out cast aluminum wheels, making it the most eye-catching vehicle on three wheels.

    Slingshot is also introducing two new colors to its line-up: Gloss Black and Turbo Silver SL, while keeping the highly popular Red Pearl SL. The 2016 spring line-up is also outfitted with new all-black seats and the SL models feature bold new graphics to stand out on the road.

    “In 2015, Slingshot roadsters turned heads around the country, sparking huge demand and a rapidly growing owner and fan base. We are releasing the new 2016 spring line-up to provide some terrific new color options for our future owners,” said Craig Scanlon, vice president of Slingshot. “With spring fast approaching, if you haven’t experienced the Slingshot first hand now is the perfect time to go to your local dealer for a test ride.”

    The unique Slingshot experience includes:
    • A low, wide stance allowing drivers to feel the rush of pavement under the seat
    • An open-air cockpit for a 360-degree rush of sight, sound and smell
    • A shared riding experience, giving the driver and passenger a front row shot of adrenaline
    • Optimized weight distribution and proprietary low-profile tires for maximum cornering
    • A lightweight design for powerful acceleration
    Slingshot Trim Levels:

    Slingshot is now offered in three distinct trim levels for a limited time only. The base Slingshot has a starting U.S. MSRP of only $21,499 featuring Gloss Black paint, 17 inch lightweight alloy wheels upfront and an 18 inch wheel in the rear. The premium Slingshot SL, with a starting U.S. MSRP of only $25,499 features either Red Pearl or Turbo Silver paint, larger 18 inch cast aluminum wheels upfront and a 20 inch wheel in the rear, as well as a blade windscreen for wind protection. It also features a media console with a 4.3” LCD screen, back-up camera, Bluetooth integration and a 6-speaker audio system. The Slingshot SL LE offers all of the same upgrades as the Slingshot SL, but on top of that will include the stunning White Pearl paint color, Indy Red powder coated frame, swing arms, springs and front-arm suspension, a tinted wind deflector, an interior lighting kit and blacked-out cast aluminum wheels. The Slingshot SL LE in White Pearl has a U.S. MSRP of $26,499.

    The new ones are also being shown at the Chicago 2016 Auto Show:

    I just checked the above after I posted it and it looks like you have to choose
    a manufacturer, so just choose Slingshot and the camera view should come up from there. For some reason, the link doesn't show a particular view.

    .

    Solid black seats on all models ...... that answers that question....

    Good cost cutting measure and good for those that want to paint or wrap ... just makes the '15 SL that much more "special"..... :wacky:

    I think the red paint on the frame stuff is kind of gay looking

    Like the all black seat decision - smart, I think. The LE would be stupid sick if they hadn't ruined it with the red accents....
