    I don't scare easy, But with the Slingshot wet/damp roads will do it, Even with traction control it try's to get away from you.... Even a light dusting of snow it gets dangerous..

    Had i tested one in the rain i would never bought one.......

    May not be able to classify it as a motorcycle or autocycle with front wheel drive.

    The Vanderhalls are front wheel drive and they are classified as motorcycles in some states and Autocycles in other states just like the slingshots...

    Well Polaris just announce another Slingshot to the 2020 lineup. And limited to 300 units.

    So it is a Grand Touring model with the new Polaris engine and Auto Trans. With a Green Paint job.

    Polaris must think it's a real winner limiting it to 300 units.
