To be released this winter. Looks like a cool Christmas gift! I wonder what the price point will be.

to me this looks like a knock-off of the kyosho bike, with mechanical gyro instead of the electric one.
But any bike that is released (and that works) is a good bike - so bring it on!

It HAS to be less expensive than the kyosho. I wonder what scale it is?

I'm thinking it has an electric gyro. The packaging of a mechanical one might be harder than just copying Kyosho's design and making an electric one.

I dunno... pretty sure I can see through the rear wheel?

Maybe a chassis mounted gyro? I assume by "mechanical" they mean a spinning flywheel as opposed to a MEMS gyro sensor.
