When Tesla announced the Cybertruck in November 2019, it also announced a Cyberquad for kids four-wheel off-road motorcycle aimed at children. Although launched and sold under the Tesla name, the Cyberquad for kids is actually made by toy manufacturer Radio Flyer, and this four-wheel off-road motorcycle has been recalled.
It has been nearly 3 years since its launch. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently stated that the Tesla Cyberquad for kids does not meet the safety standards for juvenile four-wheel off-road vehicles, and the foundry Radio Flyer needs to recall the product. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the vehicle’s mechanical suspension and maximum tire pressure did not meet U.S. standards. Additionally, Cyberquad for kids does not have programs in place to provide driver training, dissemination of safety information, age advice and other safety measures.
Radio Flyer said it should stop using the Cyberquad for kids immediately, remove the motor controller, and get the full $1,900 refund just by handing it back in. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recall involves 5,000 Cyberquad for kids, and so far there have been no serious accidents involving the four-wheeled off-road vehicle. Radio Flyer has been launching Tesla-themed products, including the Model S children’s electric bike and the My First Model Y bicycle; they stress on their official website that Tesla and Cyberquad for kids are only responsible for providing opinions on the overall look.
