SFM Slingshot Rentals

Lisbon, Connecticut

What is a Slingshot?

The Polaris Slingshot is a three-wheeled vehicle produced by Polaris Industries. It’s a unique and unconventional vehicle that falls into the category of autocycles. It has two front wheels and one rear wheel and is often classified as a motorcycle in terms of licensing requirements, even though it operates more like a car. The Slingshot typically seats two people side by side and has an open-air design with handlebars instead of a traditional steering wheel.

The Polaris Slingshot is designed for those who seek a thrilling driving experience, a connection to the road, and a unique vehicle that doesn’t fit neatly into the categories of traditional cars or motorcycles. It’s often used for leisurely rides and touring, and it appeals to individuals who enjoy the sensation of driving with the wind in their hair.
