The Slingshot lineup also introduces two new colors to the SL lineup for 2017 – Sunset Red and Black Pearl – as well as upgraded features and vehicle enhancements.
The standard 2017 Slingshot has an MSRP of $21,999, while the Slingshot SL carries a $25,499 suggested retail price. Available in dealerships in August, the new SLR carry a $28,499 price tag.
"Slingshot's new 2017 line-up takes the vehicle to the next level,” said President of Polaris Motorcycles Steve Menneto. “With the new SLR, premium upgrades on the SL, and 31 new accessories... we are giving our customers more ways to personalize their experience and make Slingshot their own."
Like all Slingshot models, the SLR is constructed with a steel frame and powered by a 173hp 2.4-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine that drives the rear wheel via a five-speed manual transmission. All models feature an electronic stability control system and disc brakes with ABS.
Among the new Slingshot accessories is the new Slingshade...
The Slingshade is a removable sun shade designed to flow with the lines of the distinctively styled Slingshot. The panels also feature tinted windows that retain overhead views and help illuminate the open cockpit.
Other accessories include styling enhancements, tech and audio components, storage options, wind deflectors, riding gear, helmets, driving jackets and street wear. Most of the vehicle accessories are offered in a variety of factory color-matched options.
