One of the more unique vehicle to come out of the Tamiya camp, the Dancing Rider Trike is a racing version of the popular Japanese delivery trike. Designed to lean into the turns, it features a rear mounted brushed motor and a battery located in the front for weight distribution. It also has a self-righting feature to get it back up on it's wheels in the event of a tip over. The Tamiya Dancing Rider Trike T3-01 retails for around $100, and should be available in November 2017.

I've never been to Japan, but I spent a few months in S.Korea. I've seen those guys hop onto and off of curbs with a two wheel delivery scooter/moped to take the sidewalk. Good stuff there...and good stuff with Tamiya putting this out.
