New Hint Comes From Trademark Registration

Polaris has tipped its electric-motorcycle hand with the trademark "Victory Charger" being registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

After issuing a stop-sale and stop-ride order, motorcycle manufacturer Polaris Industries has now followed up with a recall for the steering rack on its Slingshot roadster trike.

Long An Investor, Polaris Finally Makes The Jump

The world of electric motorcycles is small, and it's just been shaken with news that Polaris has bought up Brammo's bike-building business. We look at what happened and what to expect. #fivemin-widget-blogsmith-image-182451{display:none;} .cke_show_borders #fivemin-widget-blogsmith-image-182451, #postcontentcontainer #fivemin-widget-blogsmith-image-182451{width:570px;display:block;} try{document.getElementById("fivemin-widget-blogsmith-image-182451").style.display="none";}catch(e){}

Polaris issues a recall and stop-sale order for its Slingshot over two issues. Certain models might have been fitted with defective ball bearings in the steering column, failure of which could cause loss of steering. It's also possible that installed roll-hoops don't meet company performance specs. Both problems will be fixed free-of-charge.

Connecticut is the latest state to decide that the Polaris Slingshot is not a motorcycle and therefore can't be registered for the road there. It appears that the only solution is for Polaris to go to the legislature to create a separate designation for vehicles like its three-wheeler.

Unfiltered Fun For The Price Of A Honda Civic

Because I'm a reasonable human being and firmly believe that vehicle styling is a subjective matter, I drew some perspective on my borrowed 2015 Polaris Slingshot from fellow Los Angeles residents.

Texas might be known for the independent spirit of its people and for long stretches of high-speed open road, but prospective buyers of the Polaris Slingshot need to look elsewhere for their three-wheeled thrills. The state's Department of Motor Vehicles says that the sporty models cannot be registered there because they don't meet the definition of a motorcycle.

Imagine being dropped off by helicopter in a highly tuned Polaris RZR XP 1000 side-by-side off-road vehicle, and the only way off is through a diabolical obstacle course challenging everything that the machine can do. That scenario is not the plot of a video game, although maybe it should be, but it's the premise of a fantastic video starring RJ Anderson and his custom offroader.

UPDATE: Indian Motorcycle identifies the Chief Classic and Chief Vintage as two separate models, joining the Chieftain, Roadmaster and new Scout in the brand's five-model line-up.

If there's one thing that the likes of Morgan and Campagna have taught us, it's that a three-wheeled roadster can be one heck of a fun ride, bringing together the best elements of a motorbike and a sports car (albeit with none of the practicality). And now they've got a new challenger on their hands in the form of the Slingshot.

New Street-Legal Polaris Utility EV; Formula E Is Free At Long Beach

A UC Davis white paper maps out "Three Routes Forward for Biofuels," balancing investment risk with carbon benefits. The first option is "incremental," in which we tinker with the existing biofuel manufacturing infrastructure for small improvements over time. The "transitional" plan suggests integrating cellulosic production and other innovations with existing operations. The third route, called "leapfrogging," would mean building refineries based on new technology such as cellulosic and algae-b

Polaris, well-known maker of motorcycles, ATVs and snowmobiles, is getting very close to hopping into a whole new market with its Slingshot, a new three-wheeled roadster. The company just released its first teaser video to promote the still mysterious new sports trike ahead of its full July 27 unveiling.

It's been about a year since we first heard about the Polaris Slingshot, and it looks like the side-by-side trike is a little closer to hitting the road. Thanks to a report from Asphalt and Rubber, we now have our best look yet at the Slingshot, as well as a press release from Polaris all but confirming the three-wheeler will go on sale in 2014.

For the ultimate doomsday prepper, let us officially introduce you to the Polaris Sportsman WV850 H.O. Not only was this ATV inspired by the MV850 military vehicle, but it truly is an all-terrain vehicle with its trick non-pneumatic tires.

If Bo Duke were still going at it today, he might have a buzz cut and drive an orange Polaris RZR, but he sure as Hell wouldn't crash his ride – especially if Luke Duke were in the passenger seat. That said, this modern-day Dukes of Hazzard wannabe didn't have his cousin riding shotgun, and maybe that's a good thing. After driving his RZR side-by-side impressively far up the side of a cliff, he came tumbling back down – in the process losing his skateboard helmet and "pretzeling" the

The video team responsible for Ken Block's first three Gymkhana videos is at it again, but this time, the action has been taken further off-road with a highly modified 2014 RZR XP1000, the new top-of-the-line Utility Task Vehicle (UTV) from Polaris. The video by Mad Media was published today as part of a campaign timed to follow last week's release of Polaris' newest offering.

It seems as though recreational vehicle maker Polaris is taking steps toward the production of quite an interesting, three-wheeled vehicle. Documents filed with the US Patent Office have revealed schematics for a Polaris "reverse trike" – that's two wheels in front and one in back – with seating for a driver and a passenger. According to the logo dug up by The Kneeslider, this buddy bike might eventually be called the Polaris Slingshot.

Polaris is recalling 4,394 GEM electric vehicles due to faulty parking brakes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the mechanism may prematurely wear, leaving the brake inoperable. If the brake fails and the driver exits the vehicle, the EV could roll away and cause a crash. The recall only applies to models built between January 14, 2010 and November 23, 2012.

Polaris is traditionally known as a powersports manufacturer, selling a range of ATVs and snowmobiles. Lately, however, the North Star brand has begun to move into the electric vehicle space. They now own neighborhood electric vehicle maker GEM, and have also made a significant investment in Brammo. And now, its extended its empire into the realm of electric bicycles.

When is a monster truck not really a monster truck at all? Well, looking past the fact that we don't know of any competition-ready monster trucks that actually have such trucky items as a working pickup bed or even a passenger seat, perhaps the answer is when it's made from a Polaris RZR.
