Slingshot® is a three-wheeled motorcycle. It is not an automobile, it does not have airbags, and it does not meet automotive safety standards. Three wheel vehicles may handle differently than other vehicles, especially in wet conditions. Always wear DOT approved full face helmet and fasten seat belts. Driver may need a valid motorcycle endorsement. Don’t drink and drive.
