We’re very happy to confirm that the above photo is not only real, but road legal. It even packs electroluminescent lights for the full Tron effect, and maximum nighttime attention seeking. With all that illumination, it’s probably safer than a normal bike – in fact all bikes should look like this, for health and safety reasons.
You'd think a real-life Tron bike would be slow and battery-powered, but think again. This bad boy is packing a huge 996cc 4-stroke Suzuki engine. On top of that, its steel frame is covered in light fiberglass cowling and hubless wheels for the shape so there’s very little to slow you down. Thank God there won't be any glowing walls appearing in front of you in reality.
Before you get too excited though, bear in mind that cornering isn’t easy, you’ll be riding it virtually horizontally and getting a light-up suit to match won’t be easy. Oh, and it costs US$55,000 from Hammaacher.
Those with more modestly-sized wallets can opt for the Project Aura instead: it comprises a pair of rim-mounted LEDs that change colour based on how fast you ride and attach to a normal bike. Read all about it here.
