MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Polaris® Slingshot® is broadening its color palette with the introduction of the new 2016 spring line-up. Consumers at the 2016 Chicago Motorcycle Show and the 2016 Chicago Auto Show will be able to see the new line-up first hand, including a new Limited Edition White Pearl SL. This new model showcases powder coated red accents, an interior lighting kit and blacked-out cast aluminum wheels, making it the most eye-catching vehicle on three wheels.
Slingshot is also introducing two new colors to its line-up: Gloss Black and Turbo Silver SL, while keeping the highly popular Red Pearl SL. The 2016 spring line-up is also outfitted with new all-black seats and the SL models feature bold new graphics to stand out on the road.

We are releasing the new 2016 spring line-up to provide some terrific new color options for our future owners," said Craig Scanlon, vice president of Slingshot®. "With spring fast approaching, if you haven't experienced the Slingshot first hand now is the perfect time to go to your local dealer for a test ride."
