Adjustable rear shock for fine tuning your rebound and compression dampening, aluminum rear swing arm, rear vented disc brakes, ultra high traction tires to handle even the slickest tracks, and a unique two exhaust aluminum tuned pipe.
The model is powered by a 2-stroke internal combustion engine from Thunder Tiger, the power is about 0.6 hp. Thanks to an enclosed adapter, the motor can be started relatively easily using a cordless screwdriver.
With the modular setup, top speeds of about 60 km / h are achievable. Of course, even higher speeds can be achieved by using a stronger motor. The guy powers it up using a drill and it takes just couple of attempts to get it going. Once it is up and going, the engine makes a very loud sound, sound just like you would expect a miniature Ducati to have.
