HP to Weight Ratio will be plenty for this type of vehicle. Biggest challenge will be getting that power down to only one wheel. Polaris has gone above and beyond with this new Slingshot! Looks like I'm going to have to make some room next to my Polaris Snowmobile and ATV!!!

It will fit if you remove the rear tire after loading it... best I got for ya. :(
If you have a door into your garage then maybe you could back the Slingshot in and have the rear tire fit into the door space?
Front door is on the side... so no go there.. removing the tire might work, but obviously not convenient... maybe ramps or modifying the ramp door would be another option... or just don't put it in there.. LOL
