Additional information:

Among the 25 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:

Logo - Polaris IndustriesPolaris Industries, Inc. (“Polaris”) has recalled an estimated 3,305 model year 2018-2019 Slingshot motorcycles. The driver-seat and passenger-seat seat belt and seat back anchoring bracket may have been improperly welded in the recalled vehicles. Additionally, differences in the seat assembly may prevent proper latching of the seat slider, allowing the driver’s seat to move unexpectedly.

According to the NHTSA, if the seat belt buckle or seat back detach from the seat base, there would be an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash. If the driver’s seat unexpectedly moves, it can cause the driver to lose control of the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Polaris will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect the seat belt bracket and seat back welds, and the seat slider latching function. If the weld is missing or incomplete, or if the slider doesn’t latch properly, the seat bases will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began on March 25, 2019. Owners may contact Polaris customer service at 1-855-863-2284. Polaris’ designation for this recall is T-18-01. Note: this recall is an expansion of recall 18V-195.
