Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
Merchants Auto Group is pleased to present this 2015 Polaris Slingshot 3-Wheeled Motorcycle SL for your consideration at our Cicero, Indiana showroom. Polaris blurs the line between sport bike and lightweight sports car. Our 2015 Polaris Slingshot is a dramatic 3-wheeled motorcycle that will turn heads. In development for three years, the Slingshot is not Polaris Can-am Spyder. Rather, the 1,666-lb. trike is more akin to the Compagna T-Rex or a three-wheeled car with front wheels situated way out in front of the driver. You dont straddle this rear-drive Slingshot, you sit way back in it, side by side with your passenger in waterproof bucket seats. With its short windscreen and low-sided open-air cockpit, the Slingshot has the visceral appeal of a sport bike, but it drives more like a lightweight sports car. Beneath the polymer body panels is a space-frame chassis made of tubular high-strength steel. In back, a large, single-sided cast aluminum swing arm is controlled by a massive coil-over Sachs damper. In front is forged unequal-length aluminum A-arms team with coil-over Sachs shocks and a huge anti-roll bar that is employed to keep the single rear wheel as flat as possible on the pavement. While increased front roll stiffness typically would cause the Slingshot to understeer, or push, Polaris dials in a healthy amount of negative camber, 2.0 degrees, to make sure the Slingshot goes where it s pointed. The battery is just aft of the driver s seat. More significant, the GM-sourced 2.4-liter inline-4, a dohc aluminum-block Ecotec powerplant, mounts longitudinally just aft of the front axle, where it sends power to the rear wheel via an Aisin 5 speed manual transmission. A short driveshaft sends power rearward to a bevel gear, and it then reaches the rear wheel via a toothed rubber belt reinforced with carbon fiber. This SL s interior basically has only one button, there to turn off the stability control. Our Slingshot delivers the airy feeling of exposure you get in a vintage roadster and the machine is interesting enough to outlive the momentary hype of a hot introduction. Forget what s going on behind the seats and it s easy to pretend that you re piloting your own open-wheel Formula car.
