Couldn't take pics. They also build the Indian motorcycle there. That's why we went. I saw the SS at Sturgis this year and didn't even know they were built in Spirit Lake. That accident will cost me!!!!!!!!!

I write for a magazine and a week ago I went to my local Polaris dealer in NJ for the purpose of doing a story & photo the new Slingshot. They weren't doing test drives yet, even for Media.
I was a little concerned that on this "band new" Slingshot, the bonnet opening was malfunctioning and the tilt steering wheel/gauges were also not functioning.
Does anyone have any detailed experience with Polaris products? Unfortunately, I have none, but I'm very much interested in selling my Porsche and buying one of these, if they produce a quality product.

Polari had problems with there adjustable tilt steering wheel on there Razor SxS. This is why I never used it. Polaris wouldn't repair it in most case's. Most people ended up paying for the part themselves and installing it themselves.

Chris,

There is an incredible amount of Info on this forum. The gallery has every photo you can imagine and there is a listing of all the write-ups done by other magazines and interviews with the Polaris designers. Spend a little time digging and you will find everything we know and a whole lot of guesses about stuff we don't
