Top 10 Reasons why Motorcycle Enthusiasts should Rent the Slingshot March 1, 2015
You’re no longer in a deep slumber–dreaming, when you see a 3-wheeled motorcycle. You’re not at a motorcycle showcase, where you are only able to see something you’d love to touch and test out. The Polaris Slingshot is new, amazingly crafted, and at an intersection near you! But why, why is everyone finding a way to add the Polaris Slingshot to his or her bucket list? What would influence a motorcycle enthusiast to rent a Slingshot? The answers vary, multiply, and will make you anxious to enjoy the ride.
The traditional sidecar for the passenger on the motorcycle died out. The back seat just isn’t as appealing when compared to a side-by-side cockpit that features a media console. To add to the experience is the adjustable seat functionality and additional storage bins. The cockpit is entirely accommodating, and this is what people mean, when they say ” let’s go on a cruise”. There are 2 large storage compartments behind each seat that can hold a full size helmet making longer trips possible.
Half man/half amazing or half cruiser bike/half Pontiac Solstice. The style of the Slingshot makes for an exquisite presentation of luxury, power, and innovation. You will be the center of attention where ever you are.
3. Under the Hood
You get the best powertrain in the 2.3L DOHC ECOTEC engine. Featuring 5-speed manual transmission, carbon fiber reinforced belt drive, and a short header exhaust. 172 horsepower is sure to push you into the seat.
A low center of gravity means better handle. Moreover, because of the vehicle’s triangular base it supports its balance. It can handle up to 1g around corners
Traveling at such high speeds, safety becomes a concern. The Slingshot features a tight enclosed body, seat-belts, and windshield to protect both passengers from debris, while ensuring minimum damage in the event of a crash.
A 9.0 gallon fuel tank, still making the 3-wheeler a less expensive option of transportation. It presents the best of both worlds. The capacity of a car, and gas requirements similar to a motorbike
Many states treat the three-wheeler like a motorcycle and others like a car. If you reside in one of the states that have banned registration of the slingshot because of this issue we can help! Rent out slingshot and enjoy everything it has to offer even if you cant get one in your state.
8. The Rear Wheel!
A 10-spoke, 20-inch black anodized rim. Cat-aluminum right swingarm, a sachs coilover, and a complimentary 255/35-series tire. Need I say more?
9. ESC Programming
The potential to have fun is inevitable all while being safe. Traction control is standard as well as a reverse camera on our Slingshot SL
10. Bragging Rights
Not everyone is going to be able to say that they’ve seen, been in, let alone drove the Slingshot. It looks like a transformer, performs like a champ, and allows you to enjoy the experience with a passenger. The perfect vehicle.
