Slingshot, the fun, three-wheeled open-air roadster, announced its plans for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, which includes three activations designed to offer enthusiasts and consumers alike the “Ultimate Joyride.”
Slingshot is bringing its all-new Slingshot Joyride Course to Sturgis, offering ride-alongs with professional drivers throughout the week. In addition, Slingshot’s new 2019 lineup will be available for demo rides at Rice’s Rushmore Motorsports. Finally, a Club Slingshot owners event and ride through the scenic Black Hills will take place on Aug. 9.
“The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally provides the perfect setting to introduce the fun and exciting Slingshot lifestyle to riders from around the country,” said Josh Fulkerson, Slingshot senior director. “The Slingshot Joyride experience gives riders a unique opportunity to ride ‘shotgun’ alongside a professional driver that’ll leave them grinning from ear-to-ear.”
Those attending Sturgis will be among the first to have the opportunity to experience the all-new 2019 Slingshot lineup. Each Slingshot model packs a GM Ecotec 2.4L DOHC four-cylinder engine and delivers 173 horsepower by way of a five-speed manual transmission. The unique configuration of the Slingshot, with no doors and an open cockpit, offers a motorcycle-like riding experience. Its side-by-side bucket seats allow riders to share the experience with a passenger, and its industry-leading Ride Command infotainment system keeps the rider connected to vehicle information, maps with GPS navigation on select models, phone pairing and more. Additionally, the favorable power-to-weight ratio delivers a fun, exhilarating ride like none other.
Although federally classified as a motorcycle, the Slingshot does not require a motorcycle endorsement in more than 40 U.S. states, including South Dakota. Riders can get behind the wheel with only a standard driver’s license.
