Kiddimoto Valentino Rossi balance bike £139.99
It’s taken a while, but the most idolised bike racer in the world now has a Kiddimoto balance bike in his honour. The Valentino Rossi range of Kiddimoto bikes includes this £139.99 Hero bike, which is based on the tiny plywood two-wheeler that helps nippers get the hang of balancing a bike before they’re big enough to pedal. The new Rossi range also includes a lighter, metal-framed bike (£84.99), helmet (£36.99) and gloves (£7.99), all in Rossi’s sun and moon design. The £139.99 price tag matches other heroes in the range – Carl Fogarty, Joey Dunlop, Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez. Interestingly, though, Kiddimoto are currently flogging off Marquez bikes for £69.99.
