= a Coolwall Factor of 45.5%

Total Motorcycle’s Take-a-way: Polaris Slingshot vs Can-Am Sypder. 3-Wheel vs 3-Wheel. Both are controversial, both suffer from “it is not a motorcycle” syndrome, but both manufacturers claim both are motorcycles. By a win of 10% more Cool, the Can-Am Sypder takes the small win over the Polaris Slingshot. A 45.5% vote though, it below the Cool line, but just barely. In the end, both can be cross-shopped are unique and offer a different “riding style” than a motorcycle and offer a riding experience to those who can’t ride 2-wheels. Which 3-wheeler would you prefer?
