This TRON Motorbike is Totally Functional, And Yes, You Can Buy It

TRON: Legacy was maybe not the best film ever, but ever since it’s 2010 release, it’s spawned an entire genre of TRON-esque design: dark, glossy objects with light-up highlights. And nothing is more synonymous with TRONIism than the electric motorcycle from the film — which you can now have a chance to own.

The replica was built for the Andrews Collection, one of biggest and best car collections in America, most of which is currently being sold at auction. That includes the TRON bike, an exact, working replica of the one seen in the film. It’s got a 96 volt direct-drive electric motor, actual suspension, and hydraulic brakes.

The bike was only ever ridden around the storage at the Andrews collection, so it’s in as-new condition. List price from Sotheby’s, which is conducting the auction, is $25,000 - $40,000 (£16,800 – £26,900); but there’s no reserve, so you might be able to snag yourself a bargain. Maybe rich people don’t like replica film props. [Sotheby’s]
