I just took a look at the Enzo web site . Wow, they look nice. More along the lines of a T-Rex. I like the price. But I just dont think I would fit in one very well. They do look really nice though !!!With everyone wanting add on features for Slingshot they could buy an Enzo reverse Trike in TX. Many proven options and in the same $ ballpark.. Check it out and then comment..
Im hear you Otter. If I was 10 years younger , or 5-6 inches shorter. I would pull my SL deposit right NOW !!!!!! I think the Enzo is a better looking machine. I just dont think I could get in and out of it without a lot of effort . DARN !!!!!!You just lost me Polaris. Maybe not as a customer (assuming it ever gets here) but my heart belongs to Enzo. My first long SS ride will be to Texas to check this out. If they have a better 'reverse gear solution' than the kludgey thing on T-Rex, I'm sold.
Hot damn, Something to look forward to
Another virginity shieldIf the body stylings on the Enzo aren't for you, may I recommend the Hudson Stinger: http://www.angloisrael.com/reversetrike/hudson-stinger.html
The brand is kind of now defunct, but I think the owner still builds one-offs.
I know it's opinion, and I prefer the SS........But I've never had a better engine than the 1340. It's been one of my favorites. Very durable/reliable and powerful as all get-out. Of all my bikes, it's the only one that the valves have never been out of spec. It has great aftermarket support and like you said, spares are relatively cheap......So Otter, you're going to have an SS, the Enzo, and Whatthe........You'll have to do a video shoot-out for us.They had other body work styles if you don't dig the T-rex. I liked the 'F1' looking thing with the stubby wings myself.
A used Busa engine wouldn't bother me at all as long as it checked out OK. You can buy spares cheap too
Funny how taste works. I was 'sold' on the SS based on a written description. When I first saw the SS pictures I thought it was too angular, too much like an F117 Nighthawk. It has grown on me a bit but I still want to rip its cloths off.All just a matter of taste. Since I first saw the sling shot I can't stop looking at pictures of them. Saw it in person and put down a deposit. I just checked out the enzo web site and it did nothing for me. They look fun, but ugly.
