Looks like its never going to happen.
Mfw I actually wanted one. :-(
How much pounding will it take to get this into your head? The Elio would've been registered for motorcycle users. It's safer than any motorcycle on earth. How is this a problem?
of couse bikes are safer than that POS
>can bail/jump off if you need to
Unlike that stupid coffin on wheels you wont be able to get out of in a crash and YOU DONT HAVE TO WEAR A HELMET or bike gear so your fucked
Just buy a can am ffs
I didn't actually expect it to happen but still...
>could have been actually ready this time
>SUDDENLY a new law that makes this super cheap and fuel efficient car impossible
what a coincidence.
>it has >2 2 wheels
>has a steering wheel and pedals
>has 3 wheels
Its a fucking 3 wheeled car you stupid fucks
Holy fuck your stupid
>lets take a can am and put a cabin on it with crap safety standards
Oh ok have fun dying idiot
A big portion of /o/ never liked them because they postponed way too often, do shit public relations work and the whole project always smelled like vaporware. The other part are shitposters and actually guys who literally get paid for shitposting.
Yes because the controls suit the platform.
It would be like steering a car with fucking motorbike controls
just get a fucking can am and put a bodykit on it there done
Have fun with your vaporware
Ditching is one of the most basic skills any rider knows. If you're wearing all the proper gear and use a little judgement on ditching in a situation where the bike is unrecoverable you're better off than trying to hold on to the 500lb engine/tire combo flopping down the road.
If you're on a bike and you're not willing to let go of the handlebars when appropriate you're gonna have a bad time m8.
Well I feel sorry for my co-worker who bought one then. His Slingshot will be in limbo. I think he could only operate within this state any way, but I never asked him. It had just gotten a motorcycle classification as he bought it. Polaris had just convinced the state to pass the regulation that month.
>implying this thing was ever anything other than vaporware
>implying they could have ever actually sold them for 7K and turned a profit
>turned to crowdsourcing to try and start production
>the engine that is supposed to get this mythical 80+ mpg doesn't exist outside concept blueprints
a polaris slingshot, only like 40 000$
On another note...do you guys have the can am spyder in the USA ?
Your fucking high. $19,000.
>back problems keep him from riding a real bike ;__;
Riding one of those wouldn't any better on your back than riding a Goldwing or many jap or BMW cruisers, I could understand knee or leg problems though.
Regardless the majority I see at least appear to be in shape, its just they're fucking pansies.
Fucking government meddling. First they say we can't have pop-up headlights to protect pedestrians, now they want to ban this "to protect us". Motherfucker, I'm an adult, I can make decisions for myself.
over 9000% mad. maximum fucking sperg-out
The "super secret" engine that "doesn't exist" is in the red prototype that was at the LA Auto Show. This motor, right here! In this picture! BTFO
>The lights are likely to stay dead, as Europe’s stringent pedestrian-impact regulations make it difficult, costly, and impractical to develop a compliant pop-up headlight.
We could still have them in the US, but they sucked, so no one makes them anymore.
