  • All 2015-18 Polaris Slingshots Recalled!

    You read that right. All 2015-18 Polaris Slingshots have been recalled due to faulty welds on seat belt anchor brackets. Seat belt brackets? On a "motorcycle"??

    Proof right there that these 3 wheel roadsters are not in fact motorcycles!!
    Defective or incomplete welds on the Polaris Slingshot's seat base or belt buckle anchoring point could cause adverse effects...

    Just wait, the people in California will pass a law requiring seat belts on a motorcycle.

      They are marketed as a motorcycle, as to not have to meet NHTSA Crash certifications for automobiles.........if one were to try to assign it to a particular vehicle category however think "Autocycle".

      I think driving (RIding?) one would be a blast...but I wouldn't replace my 2 wheeled motorcycle with one.

        Interesting... and it took Texas how long to recognize the Slingshot as a motorcycle? Maybe there was some wisdom there for once.

          As I recall, the car like seating was a major point of conention in accepting it as a motorcycle.

        Markcuda has been laying low but I'm just guessing that he was either booted off the forum or left under his own will.

          The article indicated certain 2017-18 Slingshot models were affected. A friend of mine reported his 2015 Slingshot was not affected.
