2020 R SlingShot
My first SS is the 2020 R Std. I did some research and saw a lot about people suspicious of the 2020 changes. Especially the ProStar.I know, I know, you didn't think you would hear from me again! However, took the SS out for a couple of hours and DAMNIT I'm still hooked! And, really there is no replacement SS, all the other trikes just don't appeal to me at all! I'm going to do more research, but if Polaris HAS TRULY gotten the bugs out of this machine, I really like the looks of the 2020. Either way, I am going to sell or trade-in my 15, just don't trust it anymore, I've had so many problems with it! Appreciate your thoughts
I continued to research, test drove some 2019s but still decided to go with the 2020R. Besides, I got a really good trade in on my Harley TriGlide.
I love the 2020R. I can't make an honest comparison to previous years since I've never owned one. But I love what I have and have had zero problems with it.
Besides the increased HP and improved cock-pit, I guess they resolved the heat issue I have read about in previous years. It is not detectable in my 2020.
To be honest, if someone were to ask me of a list of improvements I would want, the only ones I can think of would pertain to the Ride Command Infotainment system. It is one of the areas that Harley win, hands down.
But the fact that we are sitting side-by-side makes the point somewhat moot.
What I don't like to see is the contempt prior to investigation. Stuff like "I wouldn't trust that engine because it does not have a history" reads like "sour grapes".
Besides being a false statement since the ProStar does have a history, every engine was new at some point.
Actually, I am extremely impressed with the Polaris Slingshot.
