Polaris Slingshot

Looks like Polaris is introducing a new, side-by-side, two wheels in front trike.

Not a Polaris M/C motor (thank dog) but a GM 2.4L Ecotech.

Might be interesting...might get recalled.

"The patent describes the engine as a GM 2.4 liter Ecotec with a manual transmission, though it could also incorporate a hybrid system or even be a battery powered electric."

it's more like a three wheel go cart. cool. unless you're anywhere near traffic and then everywhere is a blind spot. you could probably look under some of it.

looks interesting, but way too big. cut the thing in half, doesn't need all that power, weight, and price
