The guys at Parker Brothers Choppers have managed to not only replicate the cgi created Tron Lightcycle, but they have made it a real rideable bike. The custom created bike can reach speeds up to 120 miles per hour. It is 8 feet long, 23 inches wide and 215 kilograms. It looks exactly like the space age Tron bike. It is is chain driving and offers a TL1000R engine.

 

The Tron Lightcycle is just a prototype, but with over 800,000 views on Youtube it is becoming a serious project. They have 4 more that they  are creating and Disney has contacted them about using the Tron LIghtcycle in promotional events for the motion picture.

 

If you want a Tron Lightcycle get in line and be prepared to shell out $55,000 to Parker Brothers Choppers.

 

Learn Something Fun: Tron was inspired by Atari's Pong. Tron's creator, then animator Steven Lisberger was working with his own studio when he saw a demo CGI reel from a computer firm and Atari's game Pong.
