Get your kids an electric Ducati motorcycle - The Red Ferret Journal | Ductalk: What's Up In The World Of Ducati |

One of the fun things about being a kid is finally learning how to ride a bike. It can be a bit scary, as they go faster than your trusty tricycle or Big Wheel. But I still remember the first time I rode without training wheels. It was a glorious 10-15 seconds before I fell and scraped my knee. Well, if you want your kids to experience this same feeling, without making them do all of the hard work like pedaling, then you should get them a Peg Perego Ducati Monster 12V electric bike.

This electric bike features many of the things you’d find on its larger counterpart. Things like a front headlight, horn, engine sounds, and shock absorbers all add to the authentic feel. You can even get up to speeds of almost 5mph. The thing that disturbs me about this is that the age range on this is 3-7 years old. It does come with training wheels, but I think I’d want my kid to have been riding a regular bike for a few years before putting them on a $470 electric motorcycle.
