Electric Tron Lightcycle Is Street-Legal & Amazing VIDEO & Pics

by Megzuson Cars, TechnologySeptember 22nd2 comments

There’s no denying it: every Tron fan pictured himself on one of those amazingly designed, super-fast bikes from the movie. Parker Brothers Choppers turned that dream into reality a year ago, when they created the first Tron Lightcycle, but now they’ve taken it a step further and turned the gas-guzzling beast into an electric bike.

The all-new Electric Tron Lightcycle is powered by a 96 volt electric motor and lithium ion batteries. Its top speed is in excess 100 mph, and its range is 100 miles on a single range, with a mere 35-minute recharge time.

As for practicality, we’re not experts on motorcycles, but it does seem a bit hard to ride. We guess it’s a small price to pay for the looks you’ll be getting when riding this beauty – especially at night, when the bike lights up just like the one in the movie. .

Pricing and availability is unknown at this point, but as a reference, the old, gas-powered version costs in the vicinity of $55,000. Check out a video of the Electric Tron Lightcycle in action below.
