A Ducati for the little ones
The Italian toy manufacturer Peg-Perego offers a collection of small electric three-wheeled motorcycles in 6 or 12 volt versions for 2-8 year olds, featuring Capirossi himself n ° 65 machine at 95 euros. Top speed: 4.3 km / h !
Two weeks before the Mondial du Deux-Roues (read our), the Italian toy manufacturer Peg-Perego has just unveiled its “Christmas 2005” collection of electric vehicles for children. Featuring a splendid three-wheel version of the Ducati n ° 65 by Capirossi with the Capirex and Bridgestone logo !
"With its streamlined shape for more aerodynamics, 4.3 km / h top speed and three wide wheels to better grip the asphalt, this Ducati has nothing to envy its big sister.", swags the manufacturer:" with its 6-volt battery with an autonomy of around 1h30, refueling at the pit is optional. Unless Mom calls her little bikers to come and have a snack !"
Offered at a price that is ultimately quite attractive (95 euros indicative retail price), the Desmo, equipped with an accelerator pedal at the foot, should delight children of bikers (from 2 to 5 years old) as Christmas approaches. !
For the (a little!) Older ones, the "Desert Tenere" definitely promises "peaks at 7.6 km / h"thanks to its 12 volt battery. Intended for 3-8 year olds, it is manufactured without a license but looks very much like a famous all-terrain motorcycle !
Equipped with two speeds, a throttle at the handle, front and rear suspensions, a foot brake, a transportable top case and removable stabilizing wheels, it is able to roll on surfaces (a little) rugged (grass, gravel) and to climb "slopes of 10%". She has everything of a"ultra sporty model", summarizes Peg-Perego, but its price is higher (219 euros indicative public price).
A special girls’ model is also available with "electronic sound and light effects"(in pink, of course!), as well as a"Traffic Police XL"to make the American cops green with envy Chips ! A magnificent 6 volt Vespa also exists with front light, horn and top case, but unfortunately it is currently reserved for Italy…
The Peg-Perego range of toys, which also includes Polaris quads, 4x4s and John Deere agricultural machinery, is available in supermarkets and in specialized stores such as Toys’R’us or Grande Recre..
