VIDEO: Hot Wheels motorised 'skateboard bike' revealed

$349.99 Urban Shredder from Dynacraft hits shelves in the US.

A premium motorised ride-on – the Hot Wheels Urban Shredder – could come to the UK.

The device, from Mattel and Dynacraft, is billed as 'part motorcycle, part skateboard, part super engine – all beast' and is available in the US for $349.99.

The Hot Wheels Urban Shredder can reach speeds of up to 10mph with a 24-volt electric engine. It allows kids to 'cruise with style and control', featuring electronic throttle control and precision-tuned handling. 

It includes an adjustable foot/knee deck, a wall charger and features safe "sparking action" that emits while leaning into sharp turns. 

The Urban Shredder by Hot Wheels is targeted at children aged eight to 12 years old, with a 150-pound weight limit.

It's available now at Walmart.com, ToysRUs.com, Amazon.com and Target.com, and will be in-store at Walmart and Toys R Us in the States this week.

ToyNews understands the device could head to the UK in the near future; we'll keep you updated as we hear more.

"Partnering with Dynacraft allows us to leverage their sporting goods expertise to create an unprecedented real-life, Hot Wheels experience," said Diane Reichenberger, vice president of consumer products, Mattel, North America. 

"The Urban Shredder takes the very best of bike, skateboard and motorised scooter play and transforms it into an adrenaline fueled vehicle that's ready to ride in time for the holidays."
