Slingshot is powered by a 2.4-liter dual-overhead cam engine and a 5-speed manual transmission. It features a steel frame, aluminum swingarm, and a carbon fiber reinforced drive belt. With a dry weight of less than 1,700 lbs., a very low center of gravity, and an engine that produces 173 horsepower (weight and power specs provided by Polaris), Slingshot delivers heart pounding acceleration and cornering power. Slingshot has advanced motorcycle features such as electronic stability and traction control, three-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, LED taillights, forged aluminum roll hoops, and three-point seat belts. The Slingshot can also be personalized with accessories including larger tires with forged aluminum wheels, media console, windscreens, and vehicle covers.
