New and Used Slingshot Owners to Receive Free One-Year Membership; Inviting Owners to Help Shape the Club Slingshot Experience
Every good machine deserves a good owners group, right? Harley-Davidson has H.O.G, Triumph has TOMCC, BMW has the BMOA, hell, there's even a Yamaha Triples Owners group! Not to be left behind, Polaris just announced that it's forming the Club Slingshot Owners Group for dedicated Slingshot owners (Slingshotters? Slingshotistas? Slingshot-heads?). Slingshot owners are going to get one free year of membership to the club, which isn't bad. If you don't have a Slingshot, Polaris just launched a program where they'll give you $1,000 if you trade your motorcycle—or, get this, your sand rail—on a new Slingshot. Not too shabby, right?

Press Release Follows
Polaris Slingshot, the open air, three-wheeled roadster that delivers “The Ultimate Joyride,” today announced Club Slingshot, a national owners group that is designed to embrace a strong, growing community and recognize the loyal Slingshot owners across the country. In its inaugural year, more than 25,000 new and used Slingshot owners will receive a complimentary one-year membership, which includes special offers, access to events and rides, as well as a first-edition Slingshot owners magazine.
Club Slingshot is designed to enhance the local owners group experience, and to elevate that even further, Slingshot is asking owners to play a vital role in shaping the future of Club Slingshot. Slingshot invites owners to share their ideas by connecting directly via e-mail at ClubSlingshot@Polaris.com. Slingshot’s desire to build this from the ground up is intentional, as it looks to build Club Slingshot alongside its passionate community of owners.
“Since the introduction of Slingshot in late 2014, we have seen an organic establishment of owners who share the same passion for the brand and their vehicle. We felt the time was right to establish a national owners group to celebrate and provide further value to Slingshot owners,” said Josh Fulkerson, Slingshot Sr. Director. “Club Slingshot is more than a membership group. It’s a community of people who have fun owning their Slingshot, want to share memorable experiences and establish relationships that can last a lifetime. They are connected by simply enjoying the Slingshot life.”
