    Some things were changed....The steering was quicken [Lock to Lock] They added a Polaris in house engine on some models...And a kind of Automatic Its still the GM 5 speed but with a electric shifter tacked on it, And some cosmetic bodywork added to the fronts open gap...Scuttlebutt is if these changes don't move more product in 2 or 3 more years The Slingshot will go the way of Victory.......

    It will be interesting to see the outcome if it does survive. Some of the early reviews sounds positive but waiting on real owner reviews and comments.

    A real head turner, will it survive, there's a real good question as usual time will reveal the answer. Vanderhaul is in the same camp. These are tough financial times with the market in serious red most every day. Producers with deep pockets survive, but will not hesitate to pull the plug if the product doesn't show progress financially.

    My Bride bought a Slingshot the first month they came out in Dec 2014. I showed her photos of them before they even came out. She said "I'm buying one of those!"...She loves it. She even lets me drive it sometimes...

    When describing it, we compare it to an old timey roadster, like an MG or something, but modernized with new tech.

    She gets 28-30 mpg. We are height/weight proportional, so no real problems getting in or out.

    The original seats are not too great, I bought her the Quilted Comfort seats for Christmas this past year. Much more comfortable. In sunny weather you learn to fold the seats forward when you get out to keep the sun off.

    And put a towel on the seat.

    She was jonesing for the big 305 rear tire too, got her the full tire/wheel set for Christmas the year before.

    Yes it's 87" wide in the front. We normally have the TriGlide in the little 6x12 trailer behind the motor home, she would like to bring her toy sometimes, but I guess we would need a stacker trailer, then we would need more motor home to tow that...yikes...

    Since it has a steering wheel and 3 pedals, we call it driving as opposed to riding. But you are still in the wind, no top, we wear helmets for comfort and also because we have the Sena intercoms.

    Sometimes we take both toys out. I like to ride behind her so I can watch folks look at it and do double takes. Seen a guy about break his ankle stepping off a curb looking at her not at the ground...
