Doraemon (roughly pronounced “Doe Rye Moan”) is a popular Japanese cartoon series about a robotic time traveling talking cat. He began life as a manga character in the late 1960s, and his immense popularity as an animated TV series means Doraemon is widely merchandised to all kinds of consumer products, including folding bicycles.
There are about a zillion children’s bicycles using the Doraemon character or that of his younger, cuter sister, Dorami. I’m not sure I ever expected to see an adult bike adorned with Doraemon graphics, but I shouldn’t be too surprised.
This bike retails for about 30,000 Yen, which is about US$375 these days.
