None of those jump out at me, but they are cool none the less. Why? Because they are off road motorized toys, which puts them in the "awesome" category.

Did you guys see the "slingshot"? Whats next for Polaris, full blown cars? The performance of this 3 wheeler is pretty impressive,Corvette type performance for 20 large! It has a GM sourced drivetrain. I sure wished they would have kept developing the Outlaw, instead of handing everything over to KTM.Those new KTM quads are sick,sick,sick!!! Your welcome KTM!! Has anyone here ridden one of their quads? I havent seen any big name riders on them yet. Hey, did anyone else catch that coverage of Erzberg this weekend, USA had two top ten finishers!

Here is your Polaris Slingshot. Polaris spammed me
with it in this mornings e-mail. I just see it as a one
up on the Can Am Spider with a major twist. They'll
sell a couple, but I'm not interested.

I'm just glad they didn't do anything that would make me want to trade the Scrambler in...I do like the new Highlifter edition RZR 1000 though. 2015-RZR-XP-1000-eps-HighLifter_Lo3q.tif.jpg

I'd like to drive it just to see what it's like, but don't think I'd own one.

Polaris needs to get their pricing in check if they plan on selling these.  Otherwise it will be the same problem we've seen with the Scrambler 1000, Sportsman WV, RZR XC, etc...  Premium pricing for very niche units does not usually equal robust sales. 

Personally, I'd rather get a stock RZR 1000 and put the extra money toward reliability upgrades.

Your absolutely right about the pricing, but it does seem
they are trying to go out of their way to attract the 1%
and telling the 99% to piss off.....As it is, Polaris no longer
makes any form of machine that I would purchase. They
just don't get it, or am I the one that does'nt ??

NO YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE FUJ. myself and my friend/business partner stop in the polaris dealer here about once a week and look at all the side by sides and the 2 atvs they have in stock and say ok where are all the sport quads these things are slow and boring? then when they say oh we dont have any and wont these things are awesome and will go 100 miles per hour hauling 6 people and 1000 pounds of crap. we tell them no thanks we'll stop by and by something when you have a cool sport quad like the predator or the outlaw. i like to tell them i have owned 5 predators and 2 outlaws and about 10 other sporty polaris machines and would like to own another instead of a $14,000 UTILITY QUAD.

Fuj and Leo,

Exactly right.  We've said the same thing to Polaris.  We get regular inquiries about sport quads.  Yet the powers-that-be seem totally unreceptive to hearing that there is actual interest in a true sport quad that doesn't weigh 800 lbs. or cost $14k.  Meanwhile, a dozen sport quads could have sold this summer while the Scrambler still sits.

Researching a belt drive, I ran across this for the
Slingshot. I'll have to say this is pretty ignorant for
putting power to the ground.

2.4 liter, DOHC Ecotec with 5 speed manual tranny.
Typical dry clutch plate running long drive shaft to
gear box, converting to belt drive.....Were talking
several hundred horse power to a single tire with
not alot of contact patch.....Like I say.....We all
gotta die of something !!
