Slingshot to participate in the 76th Annual Daytona Bike Week with daily activities for fans and owners

MINNEAPOLIS (March 6, 2017) – Slingshot®, the bold three-wheeled roadster with an open-air, race-ready cockpit, will roar into the 76th Annual Bike Week in Daytona Beach, March 10-19. For the first time at Bike Week, Slingshot will offer demo rides on its full MY17 lineup at the Daytona International Speedway. That’s in addition to other exciting opportunities for fans to interact with the exotic looks, raw performance and pure adrenaline rush that this lightweight three-wheeled motorcycle offers.


“Daytona Bike Week is the epicenter for motorcycling enthusiasts,” said Rachel Elia, Slingshot Marketing Manager. “There is no doubt you will witness our presence in full force with activations at the Daytona International Speedway, Destination Daytona and Main Street. Fans and owners will take notice as the dual seat Slingshot roadster makes its presence felt at Bike Week.”


Slingshot will have a far-reaching presence designed to engage visitors with the edgy, three-wheel performance roadster, while introducing the open-air cockpit and side-by-side seating to a whole new set of enthusiasts. Throughout the week, the Slingshot Street Team will be roaming the streets and venues of Daytona Beach giving away gear that celebrates the Slingshot lifestyle. In addition, custom Slingshot builds from The Auto Firm will be on display at the Destination Daytona Concert Pavilion to showcase the 360-degree, race-ready cockpit and exotic, head-turning design of this one-of-a-kind roadster.
