Here's an Electric Tron Light Cycle You Can Actually Buy

By Jamie Condliffe on at

If there's one thing cooler than riding a motorcycle, it's riding a Tron: Legacy Light Cycle. Now you can, and without harming the environment.

Launched at the Milan International Motorcycle Show over the weekend, Evolve Motorcycle's new creation is the Xenon: an all-electric replica of Tron's iconic Light Cycle.

The bike features a 40,000 watt motor powered by custom lithium-ion batteries, and can zip you through the dark city streets at up to 100 mph. The blue glow is made possible thanks to OLED light tape, and the thing takes three hours to charge.

You get a 30 mile range, but Evolve says that if you're light enough and ride responsibly, you might be able to squeeze 100 miles out of it. Though somehow I suspect it is impossible to ride responsibly.

It's based on the custom-made Parker Brothers Choppers version of the Light Cycle, but the Xenon is actually commercially available. Since you're dying to ask, it can be yours for just £34,000.

Of course, if Tron's not quite your style, you might prefer Parker Brothers Choppers' rather more burly electric bike, The Detonator. [Engadget; Image: Evolve Motorcyles]
