Now’s your chance to own your very own functional “Tron: Legacy” light cycle for as low as $25,000.
With a “96 volt, direct-drive electric motor with lithium batteries and a computer-controlled throttle, rebound and compression damping with spring-preload front suspension and rigid rear suspension, and front and rear hydraulic brakes,” the light cycle is “a fully functioning motorcycle that can be ridden, as it is powered by a direct-drive electric motor that has lithium batteries, which is mated to a computer-controlled digital electronic transmission. This custom ‘Tron’ tribute boasts a very low seat height of 28.5 inches, making it easy to ride even at low speeds.”
The cycle, billed on RM Sotheby‘s website as “2011 Custom Electric Motorcycle,” is up for auction on May 2.
Although Marvel’s November solicitations include a listing for the Tron: Betrayal graphic novel, a prequel to Disney’s upcoming movie Tron: Legacy, they don’t include the cover image. Luckily, Jock is quick to point us to his website, where we can see his cover and early sketches.
Thegraphic novel, written by Jai Nitz from a plot by Starlight Runner Entertainment and illustrated by Andie Tong, is also being released by Marvel as a two-issue miniseries. Tron: Legacy opens on Dec. 17.
