The AIMExpo presented by Nationwide has announced the return of Polaris Slingshot. The three-wheeled roadster will be an OEM exhibitor for the 2018 event and will serve as a focal point of AIMExpo Outdoors! at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in fabulous Las Vegas, October 11-14, personifying its mantra with a one-of-a-kind ride along experience at its Joyride course.
“AIMExpo presents a unique opportunity to engage with dealers, the media, and our consumers. The move to Las Vegas this October provides an ideal platform and venue to expand our involvement by providing a truly fun experience for all attendees at our popular Slingshot Joyride course. It’s sure to leave a lasting impression and a grin from ear-to-ear,” said Josh Fulkerson, Slingshot Sr. Director.
The introduction of the Slingshot Joyrides at AIMExpo Outdoors! is sure to be one of the highlights for show attendees. Riders will ride in the passenger seat alongside a professional driver and experience an exciting ride to remember through a specially designed drift course. Since its introduction in 2014, Slingshot has maintained a high level of buzz thanks to its distinction as a three-wheeled, open-air roadster. With a federal motorcycle classification, Slingshot has spearheaded an effort to reclassify the three-wheeled roadster and change driving requirements in each state. Currently, 44 U.S. states do not require a motorcycle endorsement, as many categorize the Slingshot as an “autocycle.”
“AIMExpo presented by Nationwide is the lone national expo in North America that showcases the entire powersports industry, and after experiencing the benefits of this exclusive platform first hand, Slingshot is committed to having an even more dynamic presence in 2018,” said Larry Little, VP and GM of MIC Events. “With its innovative design and exceptional handling, Slingshot is paving new territory for what the powersports industry can be, and the chance for attendees to experience a joyride into that territory is going to be something no one will want to miss. Polaris’ desire to continue to power the industry forward with passionate products and experiences will meet a receptive audience of media, dealers and consumers in Las Vegas.”
