Kids now have yet another toy to wish for, as Chicco have just announced the release of a remote control motorcycle toy for toddlers, priced around $39.99 (depending on the retailer). The new Ducati 1198 RC is suitable for children of 2-5 years of age who, of course, like bikes. Chicco says it even helps improve children’s handling skills and coordination.

The Chicco remote control Ducati 1198 features a remote control that looks like the front end of a Ducati 1198 dash board complete with handlebars and a speedo.

The speedo is just a sticker but the bike controls work by turning the handlebars from side-to-side like the controls of an actual motorcycle and pushing the easy to find buttons to move it forward or reverse.

The plastic construction features only a few moving parts. Four small wheels including two outriggers on the side for stability, are responsible for moving and steering the motorcycle. This makes it hard to tip over, but it is still subject to high-sides when you get it moving too fast and attempt sharp turns on grippy floors.

“Overall the research shows this remote control motorcycle is a good toddler toy. It received high ratings on Wal-Mart and Toy R Us websites as Chicco continues its longstanding relationship with Ducati by offering yet another fun toy for the newest motorcycle enthusiast in the family,” Jenna Walsh says.
