Well, what do you know... Ferrari has finally created a new two-wheeler, but it's not exactly the Ducati-esque superbike we had been hoping for. Still, it's probably the greenest Ferrari the world will ever see. Designed for little tykes of either gender aged 3-4 years, this not-quite from Maranello Ferrari-branded cycle has dual 12-inch wheels, an aluminum twin-tube chassis running straight from the headtube to the rear dropouts and, um, training wheels. A radial-mounted caliper brake grips firmly at the front while the rear gets a skid-friendly coaster brake. Just in case the bright red paint job didn't get the message across, a yellow Prancing Horse flag is affixed to the rear, easily adding a few extra horsepower in the process. Get yours now from Toys-R-Us for under 5-large. Too small? No worries, a 16-inch wheel version is available along with a proper 20-incher for those budding pre-teen future Ferrari drivers. Thanks for the tip, Yash!

      When I saw "5 large" put up here for the price, my first instinct was to figure it cost $5,000. Granted, $500 is way too much to spend for anything with training wheels on it, but given the ridiculous price of pretty much anything with a Ferrari logo on it...

      What won't this company not put their name on???

        Well They also made a Laptop called the Acer Ferrari. It's horrible. It's their regular model Laptop with a red skin and Ferrari branding- about 30 dollars worth. And they'll charge 2K for it. Ripoff.

        It's as dumb as the Bentley Laptop- except it looked like a Apple Clamshell laptop, The Volkswagen CC's seats and a Gucci Handbag all in one.

        A scooter. Surely!
        • 6 Years Ago
        BUT WHY DO YOU NEED A CARBON FIBER LAPTOP? Are you going to race with it?
        • 6 Years Ago

      That screams "Kidnap me. If my dad spent $1000 for a tricycle for me, just think what he'd pay to get me back!"

        That's what I was thinking, but it's ok because this thing looks like a cheap knock off you'd get at Walmart.

      $480 for a bike that is no more useful than the $50 Huffy's at Wal-Mart. What 3 year old can use lever brakes? This is a bike to satisfy the needs of the parent, not the child. A kid would rather see Diego or Disney Princesses on a bike, not a Ferrari logo.

      I have to admit, I am speechless, which is rare.

      That's not a Ferrari bike!

      This is a Ferrari bike:

      That is absurd.

      You can get a serious piece of real bike for $500. The one I just bought retails for $675 and it is stupid fast. But then again, it's a Jamis, not a Ferrari, I guess...

      it's $480, i think i'll pass.
