Ducati has joined forces with Spin Master Corp, creating a remote controlled Panigale V4 S to bring the thrill of racing to a smaller scale.
Touted as the most technologically advanced RC bike ever created, the Upriser Ducati Panigale V4 is a seriously capable bit of kit. The result of years of development, the Upriser’s True Balance and Omni Wheel technology allows the bike to reach speeds of up to 20kmh. It can pop a wheelie from a standing start, balance on its back wheel at any speed (even while standing still), and drift like nothing else.
Set to be released in July, the Upriser Ducati Panigale V4 S will set punters back just shy of £150 – so if you’re a big fan of the Panigale V4 S but don’t have the cash to get your hands on one, look no further.
Ben Gadbois, Spin Master’s Global President and COO said: “Partnering with an established premium brand like Ducati, recognized for their style, sophistication and performance, takes this RC motorcycle to the next level. The Upriser Ducati Panigale V4 motorcycle is the epitome of what Spin Master is known for – innovation and collaboration. What started as an internal idea was then brought to life through this unique partnership with Ducati, in collaboration with the Air Hogs development team. The result is sleek style, superior performance and extraordinary innovation.”
Alessandro Cicognani, Ducati’s Licensing and Corporate Partnership Director, said: “It has been amazing to see the enthusiasm and excitement that Spin Master team has dedicated to this innovative RC motorcycle project, as we share the same passion when developing our bikes. We fell in love with the product from the beginning and are happy to put our name on it. The Upriser Ducati Panigale V4 possesses such a high level of authenticity, technology and innovation: truly a small-scale version of its namesake motorcycle!”
