First Polaris Slingshot reviews

Anyone know when we can expect the first reviews? Early August?

That is my guess. Slingshot dealers and perhaps some media will be seeing and driving the Slingshot on the 27th so some initial reviews may show up quickly after that. Full tests should show up soon after the units become available from the dealers. So expect early in August in my opinion.

Well, I discovered that although they will have test units available for driver impressions at the dealer show on July 27th, they are not expected to be at the dealerships until early October. For many of us that's just in time to be putting toys away and hooking up the snowplow ;-)

thanks for the information, at least we will still get to see something come the end of this month. I can't wait.

We should get reviews before October even if that is when they go on sale. If it isn't there in time to use this year, you can at least ask for it for a Christmas present.

too bad for some that will be too late, at that point you might as well wait for spring to come around again and that is of course if you live somewhere that gets snow.

And then by next spring there will be a new model coming we'll be waiting for ;-)
The waiting never seems to end.......
I guess that's why I like vintage stuff - no waiting!

I think they should make an effort to invite some journalists out to test drive them, like that other companies do.

I'm sure they will. I haven't heard a peep but then again that reinforces my thoughts that they will target the motorcycle and sportscar markets. I imagine the first reviews will come from that media. I am doing everything I can to try to get an early unit to test......but......I may be waiting for them to hit the showroom floors like everyone else.
