how does it (the kyosho bike) steer? battery ballast?
No ballast is needed, let me explain:

The flywheel weight in the front tire acts as a gyro, it keeps the bike upright as it moves along.

Now here is the tricky part, the bike twists its front forks either to the left or right, so when you look at it from the front , it looks as the wheels aren't in a straight line. This offset actually causes the bike to lean into a turn........

Now when you want to straighten up, you have to trun the oppisite direction so the bike can straighten up, and the flywheel will balence the bike afterwards.

Like I said, you will have to totally forget how to drive a car and retrain your mind for a bike......you just can't let go of the wheel and the bike will automatically straighten up, it'll just lay down, or crash.

But it is fun.......

Some guys like the 1/5 Thunder tiger electrics, some the 1/5 NF nitro, and some the 1/8 Kyosho leaning rider. For me, I like the Kyosho since it IS very realistic. You should see it in action. The bike leans, the rider moves to the same direction, and most of all...the knees open up and scrape the pavement.

Do you mean these 1/5 Thunder tiger electrics, some the 1/5 NF nitro doesn't run like the kyosho doing this stuff like the rider moves to the same direction, and most of all...the knees open up and scrape the pavement?.

The kyosho "hangin on rider" bike is the only one with an "active" rider that leans.

All other bike models have "static" riders that do not move.

I'd say it goes around 20 mph with the mod motor.. but it isn't about the speed with the bikes, it's about turning and super scale realism!!!!

There is a heavy flywheel inside the front tire, sorta like a metal inner tube. This produce the gyro effect that keeps the bike upright. No, there are no training wheels. You have to push it to start it. If you are experienced enough, you can even make doughnuts/circles while the bike lays on its side while feathering the throttle until the bike sets itself upright.

Yep, you can't beat seeing little riders actually hanging on for dear life as if they know one spill can take off an arm, or a leg, or even his head (literally).
