Less than a week until Polaris unveils its all-new Slingshot reverse trike, we’ve got our hands on the 4th (and last) video teaser and it reveals enough to make us cheer with excitement. Little as this new video shows, the actual production version of the Slingshot looks better than the renderings which surfaced this winter.
The Slingshot is edgy and aggressive, with a lot of KTM-ish lines, and this sets it apart from the rest of the fluid-shaped similar vehicles. Truth be told, this might be a rather strong selling point for some customers, while others will most likely frown upon Polaris’ choice. The Slingshot appears to be a little higher off the ground than the X-Bow, though, so we might believe that it is not going to be as racey as its Austrian rival.

Still, in case the rumors about traction and stability control, power steering and ABS turn out to be true, we might be looking at a very fun ride, with tons of adrenaline at your fingertips. The headlight array may look a bit intriguing and peculiar, with a twin-projector setup in the middle of the front end and dual additional headlights under the fenders, but we believe the idea is cool, as it harks back to the headlights rally cars used for nighttime races.

The dash retains the edgy, somewhat 80’s-like design, though the layout boasts a modern compact attire and functionality. A bit Transformer-ish, some might argue, but not at all in a bad way, we’d add. Another detail is the manual shifter which can be observed in the video - a huge plus for those who still enjoy the feeling and gratification of traditional gearboxes. Enjoy the video and get ready for the big day: 27 July!
