With December 17th rapidly approaching, the highly anticipated sequel to Tron, Tron: Legacyis just around the corner. For most Tron fans, this means putting together all of the Tron loot, gear, and other memorabilia to get you excited about the premiere. We’re sure you have everything from these Tron Light Cycle USB drives to these awesome Tron video game controllers, but we suspect you don’t have what we’re about to show you. A Florida-based bike shop has unveiled ten custom street approvals Tron light cycles. That’s right, a light cycle that you can drive to the premiere. Each Tron Light Cycle consists of a steel frame, a fiberglass body and a V-twin engine from a Suzuki TLR 1000. The braking system is supplied in the form of a specially made friction drum. Each buyer has a choice of how to display the bike’s ads. Customers can choose between actual standard displays or an iPad dock that shows the important information and statistics on the iPad’s touchscreen. A futuristic option for this futuristic bike. These purpose-built light cycles weigh around 474 pounds and are over 100 inches long and 23 inches wide. While riding the Light Cycle, the rider is 28.5 inches off the ground. As you can see in the picture, this is not exactly an orthodox sitting position. One thing to keep in mind while looking at these cycles of light is the fact that these are not necessarily replicas. Since the light cycles that appear in the Tron films are virtual, no one has yet created a real light cycle. The bikes were created simply by looking at pictures the company found on the internet. What are you going to pay for one in only ten light cycles ever created? The Florida-based bike store currently sells the bikes for $ 55,000 each. But as I said, the premiere of Tron: Legacy is just around the corner. At the moment there are only four light cycles available. If that $ 55,000 Light Cycle still slowed your Tron excitement, there are always those 19 Tron designs, toys and accessories, that super authentic Tron motorcycle suit, or that vintage miniature Tron figurine.
