The Polaris Slingshot is a three-wheeler, a reverse bike.

Three points make a plane, but it`s not plain whether Polaris will be able to convince state bureaucrats that this contraption belongs to the motorcycle family.
Indeed, the Slingshot has waterproof seats, three-point belts, and forged aluminum roll hoops. It has a steering wheel and a five-speed manual transmission, with reverse. The view ahead is of two wheels sprouting from forged aluminum control arms, flanking a long hood that conceals a longitudinally mounted GM Ecotec 2.4-liter four-cylinder
