Harleys for Kids To Be Sold
MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Small children will soon be able to cruise their neighborhoods in style _ on miniature electric Harleys, complete with saddlebags and side exhaust pipes.
The Power Wheels Harley-Davidson, unveiled Saturday by Milwaukee-based Harley Davidson and toy maker Fisher-Price, even make the same sound as the real thing, courtesy of sound boxes.
The cycle actually rides on four wheels, with two well-disguised outrigger wheels supplying the power, and is powered by two six-volt rechargeable batteries. Parents can adjust the cycle’s speed to either 2 1/2 mph or 5 mph, depending on the size of the child.
The standard bright red model will sell for $200 to $225. Company officials said it would be available next month.
