While not the smash-hit Disney was hoping it would be, 2010’s “Tron Legacy” did contain a few unforgettable components, including the iconic Tron Light Cycle. Brimming with futuristic allure, the speedy two-wheeler left luminous trails in its wake as it raced through a digital realm. So impressive was the Tron bike that a handful of custom fabricators set about bringing it to life. The most successful among them was Parker Brothers Concepts, who has no shortage of incredible achievements under its belt. The best part? The Tron motorcycle re-creation is street-legal, baby.
History of the Tron Bike
Artist Daniel Simon was the visionary behind the Tron Light Cycle, and Parker Brothers Concepts used his actual blueprints when turning fantasy into reality. The earliest iterations ran on Suzuki 996cc V-Twin engines, but they were soon followed by an electric model, better known as the Xenon. Available in two different versions, the Xenon reportedly charged in three hours and achieved top speeds of 70 mph. It retailed starting around 55k, which seems like a respectable price for a real-life Tron bike.
Customer demand must have matched (or exceeded) supply because Parker Brothers Concepts didn’t stop at the Xenon. The company continued to improve and offer electric Tron motorcycles, which now go by the name of NeuTron. The most recent version takes things up a notch by way of new A/C induction motors, lithium-ion battery packs, and upgraded bodywork, among other things.
Being a Tron bike, the NeuTron features electroluminescent strips on the rims, aero carbon fibre around the steel chassis, machined parts, and just a truly sleek design overall. Not only does it come in several versions, but potential owners can customise things like colours, lighting, thumb-scan ignition, iPad mini digital display, and a button-activated kickstand.
