The announcement of the VR46 bike collection came complete with a press release and a couple of photos of the bikes, complete with training wheels.

“Valentino still remembers when, as a kid, took his first steps in the backyard of Dad Graziano, just riding an Adriatica bike. Since then, Rossi has continued to appreciate the two-wheeled world, though, of course, his interests have moved on the motorbike.”
Not satisfied with churning out children’s bikes, the VR46 line will apparently also include a racing bike and a mountain bike “from the highest level” to extend Rossi’s “winning image.”
The new bicycle line will be presented in Milan during EICMA. The show will start on Sept. 18 and run until Sept. 21.
