Polaris Slingshot WILL come with Coilover Suspension

Check out the patent drawings, i've circled where the front coilover clearly peaks through, the rear as well but thats more obvious

not sure, there could be adjustable options available later on from aftermarket companies, but that would only be feasible if the Slingshot was going to be used for track duty. I'm not sure how much of a market there will be...

that would be cool to have, and makes me wonder how big or small aftermarket support for this could be, my assumption for now is that it will be small if any

Anybody have an opinion as to the benefits and disadvantages of the coilover suspension? I'm not really up on the different types of suspension. What other possibilities could there be?

I am doubting much aftermarket support for the Slingshot. Polaris will offer some extra stuff I'm sure, but I don't think there is going to be a lot of parts from other companies, if any at all.

Well the rear is more of a monoshock along the lines you see with sport bikes. I wonder if the rear will be adjustable. That seems to be a fairly common feature of modern sport bikes..

Would there be much of a point in having adjustable suspension though? I figure that the factory tuning will likely be geared towards track style suspension. Tight suspension where you can really feel the road. Maybe two drive modes: track and street?

that is a good point, it could be the case that many people will be just fine with the stock setup

For the price Polaris is charging they need to move to a higher quality shock supplier. I have owned 2 polaris atv and had to replace/upgrade the shocks almost immediatly on both machines. Sachs are junk, period.
