Polaris was seeking the designation to allow owners to register the vehicles and use them on Connecticut roads.

The Waterbury Republican-American reports the DMV sent a letter to Polaris last week saying the Slingshot more closely resembles an automobile, a designation that would require it to meet more stringent safety standards.

The DMV has suggested Polaris go to the state Legislature to create a new classification for the vehicle.

The state definition of a motorcycle excludes vehicles that have an enclosed driver’s seat and an enclosed motor, and the Slingshot has both.
