Ducati Monster by Peg Pérego
Ducati motorcycle for children aged 3 and up.
Peg Pérego, in close cooperation with Ducati, has reproduced
a faithful scale model of one of Ducati's most successful motorcycles, the
Peg Pérego is somewhat familiar in the U.S.A. as a maker of
carriages. The company was started in Italy with the creation of a baby
carriage for Giuseppe Pérego’s son in 1949, a time when baby carriages were
made only by small cottage-industry creators.
Mr. Pérego hand-built the frame while his wife created the
fabric coverings for a fashionable carriage they would use on neighborhood
walks. This carriage caught the attention of other parents who admired its
unique design and appearance. In response to these parents’ requests
for their own carriages, Peg Pérego was born.
Here are some of the carefully studied details of the Peg
Pérego Ducati Monster.
The new Monster is powered by a 12-Volt, 8-Ah rechargeable
battery which ensures 1 hour play.
It has a maximum speed of 7.5 km/h and it includes battery
and battery charger.
It is equipped with stabilizers (aka "training wheels") that
can be removed when the child has become familiar with the motorcycle and
has acquired a sense of balance.
The motorcycle also features an accelerator handle and pedal
brake. It is claimed to be suitable for different types of terrain,
including bumpy ground, and can climb a 10% slope.
It is also suitable for use in private places (not in public
areas devoted to the circulation of pedestrians, vehicles and animals) and
complies with Directive 88/378/EC on toy safety, approved by a European
Quality Certification Institute.
