High tech hub-less wheel bike inspired from Tron: Legacy

Here’s something that you will surely like, a one of a kind electric hub-less wheel motorcycle inspired exactly from the 2010 film Tron: Legacy. It’s designed for casual cruising and slow ride-bys at shows and it’s made from a stainless steel frame covered by a fiberglass cowling that resembles the look of the computer animated cycle from Tron really well.

Electroluminescent strips built into the tire cowlings, wheel rims and body light up this motorcycle, turning it into a brilliant attention grabbing machine. It’s powered by a small, yet powerful Electric motor that’s able to produce 38 horsepower and it offers a unique driving position and sensations.

Riders lay at a near horizontal position on the padded leather seat, with feet on foot pegs that control the bike’s electric transmission and hands on the handlebars, of course, for acceleration and braking. The hub-less wheels were custom built from truck tires and then custom shaped to fit into one of the counter rotating rims spinning within each other, exactly like the bikes from Tron. This Hub-less bike is currently on sale for “just” $75,000.
