The Boldest Slingshot Yet...

Race inspired freedom.

THE NEXT LEVEL IN PURE DRIVING FREEDOM

Introducing the 2017 Polaris Slingshot lineup featuring the all-new race-inspired Slingshot SLR and the upgraded, fully loaded Slingshot SL. The 2017 lineup adds inspiring performance and undeniable style to the most exciting ride on the street.

2017 Polaris Slingshot SLR www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

New model for 2017.

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.

 

INCHES OFF THE GROUND

You can feel the road under your seat and in your chest.

SPORT TUNED TO STICK
