A new free-standing remote control Ducati Panigale V4 S model from Spin Master Toys has been released, boasting a top speed of over 12mph and the ability to pull wheelies and burnouts.
As you can see in the video, the Upriser maintains its own balance and rides around just like a real Ducati. This is achieved using 12 small counter rotational wheels housed in the rear wheel and controlled by dual optical sensors to constantly adjust balance.
The officially licenced 1:6 scale model is just over 35cm long and 26.5cm tall and also includes an LED headlight and working suspension, but its main party piece is its ability to get its front wheel up.
Simply press a button on the controller and wait a few seconds, and the unit will pull an impressive freestanding wheelie which it can hold while travelling in all directions.
The toy is available from August 2019 and costs £149.99.
