Meet The Rs 1.5 Crore Motorcycle Everyone Thinks Is A Car [Video]

India is one of the largest markets in the world for two-wheeler manufacturers. The demand for expensive and high-performance motorcycles and scooters is on the rise, and we are seeing a lot more of these on the roads. There are many manufacturers who produce motorcycles that do not look like conventional motorcycles. Polaris, an American automotive manufacturer best known for making ATVs, also produces a motorcycle called the Slingshot.

We have one of these motorcycles in India, and people have reacted to it after seeing it on the road. This video has been uploaded by BikeWithGirl on her youtube channel. In the video, the vlogger is seen riding the Polaris Slingshot on the streets of Mumbai. This is one very unique looking motorcycle. Its design is such that people who saw it on the road thought it was an expensive supercar, but unfortunately it is not. The owner of this Slingshot imported it to India through Carnet, and we can also see the Dubai registration plate at the rear.

The bike is extremely wide at the front, almost as wide as a Porsche 911. The motorcycle features a clamshell bonnet with the 2.0-litre petrol engine tucked under. It consists of two wheels at the front and one at the rear, with power being sent to the rear wheels. Both the front and rear wheels feature 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. Like any motorcycle, the Slingshot can seat two people, but the seat layout is different. Just like in a car two people can sit next to each other. There is a steering wheel with controls mounted on it. The instrument cluster is digital and the center console houses a touchscreen infotainment screen. There are speakers, and a good thing about this motorcycle is that even if you forget the key, you can start the bike by simply entering a password into the infotainment system.

The 2.0-litre petrol engine on this motorcycle produces 204 PS and 193 Nm of peak torque. It is mated to an automatic transmission and top speed is limited to 200 kmph. The vlogger can be heard saying in the video that he doesn’t feel like riding a motorcycle at all. There is no door or roof like we see in a car. It grabs attention wherever it goes because of its unique style and bright colour. There is also a sticker inside the Slingshot that declares that it is a motorcycle and not a car, and that riders should always wear a helmet while riding.

Talking about the price, it is an expensive motorcycle. how expensive? It has been told in the vlogger that the price of this motorcycle is around Rs 1.5 crore. When the vlogger pointed out the price to some of the people in the video, they laughed and some were confused. Reactions of people on the road are also visible in the video. Polaris launched the Slingshot in 2014 and what we see in the video here is the 2022 model. Unlike many ATVs manufactured by Polaris, the Slingshot is a street legal motorcycle.
