After a long and winding road, Slingshots are starting to hit the streets, and the owners are starting to hit their strides with the new vehicles. On our end, we have been sharing all of your comments and questions with Polaris hoping that we can start to get news and announcements directly from the Slingshot team... And we have finally hit pay dirt, of course it is all up to you guys to keep this avenue of communication alive with your views, comments, and questions.
The more valuable information that you all can post, the more information we hope to get from the Slingshot team. The document above is our first bit of official communication from Polaris.
And our very own SlingMods gets a shout out right here:Polaris Industries said:Initial stocking orders for dealers did begin shipping on November 12, and are arriving at dealerships as we speak! Our plan has been to deliver two vehicles to every Slingshot dealer within the U.S. and Canada by November 26. Given the current weather conditions and the upcoming U.S. holiday, we now know that some dealers will receive their initial shipment during the first week of December. From there, we will immediately begin filling additional retail sales. Based upon the initial deposit information provided by our dealers, we believe the majority of pre-sold orders will be delivered by the end of the December. From everyone at Polaris, thank you for your patience as we work to complete delivery of these initial Slingshot shipments.
Polaris is a great company because they actually listen to what the end users have to say about their products in the real world and make improvements that the enthusiasts want to see. They don't rely on the bean counters to lead the product development. I can tell you first hand... They are all enthusiasts themselves first!Polaris Industries said:we did want to congratulate SlingMods on being (one of) the first people to take possession of a Slingshot! And thanks for taking the time to post your review, it is very helpful to us...
