Ducati V4 wheelies at touch of a button

How would you like to wheelie a Ducati Panigale V4 S at the touch of a button?

Well, now you can! However, it’s not the real thing, but a self-balancing 1:6 scale toy from Spin Master Toys costing about $A270 when it is released in August.

The Ducati-licensed Upriser has a top speed of about 20km/h and can drift, pull wheelies and do burnouts at the touch of a button.

That compares with the real V4 S with 168kW and a top speed of about 300km/h.

The Upriser maintains balance by 12 small counter-rotational wheels in the rear wheel and controlled by dual optical sensors.

It is just over 35cm long and 26.5cm tall and includes working LED headlight and suspension.
