Buyer's Guide > SLINGSHOT S
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Is it a motorcycle or a car? Uh, we're not quite sure either, but we've got the Spyder line in here, so here it is. Unlike the Spyder, you sit in it (beside your passenger) which means you wear a seatbelt and are better supported (i.e. you don't have to fight the forces in a corner). It looks outlandishly futuristic, has three wheels, a steering wheel, and no top. It's powered by a GM car engine, which has proven very reliable over the years and makes getting parts easier; just go to your local auto parts counter.
