This Tron style motorcycle is hot. Why did I have to find this ? Why is the me of 2071 so desperate to have this ? This isn’t CGI it’s oh so real. Here ‘s a YouTube video of the bad boy in action below.
According to a website I spend way too much time on ….
“ This TRON style motorcycle is a fully functional and street legal bike that is powered by a Suzuki 996cc engine. While riding on the TRON motorcycle you lay in a flat position akin to the TRON movie. For only $55,000.00 you can tear up the streets TRON Style.
If you have a hard on for bikes here are the specs:
- Suzuki 996cc, 4 stroke engine
- Electroluminescent strips built into the tire cowlings
- Electroluminescent strips built into the wheel rims
- Electroluminescent strips built into the body to illuminate the cycle
- 6-speed constant mesh manual transmission
- Spring-loaded front and rigid rear suspension
- 3 1/2-gallon main fuel tank and 1 1/4-gallon reserve tank
- 8 1/2′ L x 23 1/4″ W x 28 1/2″ H. (474 lbs.)
This is the illuminated, street-legal motorcycle inspired by the computer animated cycle from the 2010 film Tron: Legacy. Designed for casual cruising and slow ride-bys at shows, it is made from a steel frame covered by a fiberglass cowling that replicates the sleek look of its computer-generated imagery counterpart.
Electroluminescent strips built into the tire cowlings, wheel rims, and body illuminate the cycle. It is powered by a fuel-injected Suzuki 996cc, 4-stroke engine. Riders lay at a near-horizontal position astride the padded leather seat, with feet on foot pegs that control its 6-speed constant mesh manual transmission and hands on the handlebars for throttle and braking.
The hubless wheels are former truck tires built up then custom-shaped to fit onto one of two counter-rotating rims spinning within each other, providing the broad-tired authenticity of the computer cycles from the movie. A chain-driven friction drum manages acceleration and braking from the handlebars. It has spring-loaded front and rigid rear suspension.
Its wet sump lubrication system eliminates tubes and hoses for oil pick-up, facilitating its streamlined, minimalist design. It uses a 3 1/2-gallon main fuel tank and 1 1/4-gallon reserve tank. All cycles are built to order. 8 1/2′ L x 23 1/4″ W x 28 1/2″ H. (474 lbs.)
Well alrighty then…who is going to buy one that I can drive occasionally until the me of 2071 can afford one?
