Slingshot gets a boost: No motorcycle endorsement needed in this state

Coleman PowerSports, a two-time Powersports Business Power 50 dealer, will offer demo rides of the Slingshot, promoting the fact in its Enewsletter that in Virginia, the Slingshot does not require a motorcycle endorsement — a driver’s license, helmet and seat belt are the only requirements to take on the Slingshot’s 173hp.


So the Slingshot’s 1,700 pounds of weight and 166 foot-pounds of torque will be accessible to demo riders this Saturday at the dealership’s locations in Falls Church and Woodbridge. Drivers must be at least 21 years of age and know how to operate a manual transmission. The ride lasts 20 minutes, and a Coleman PowerSports staff member will be riding in the passenger seat.
