Movie memorabilia doesn't really get more impressive, insane and expensive as this. Sotheby's auction house recently sold one of the functional electric motorcycles from Tron: Legacy.

The vehicle, which is described as a functional 'recreation of the Tron: Legacy motorcycle', reached a final value of $77,000 and comes with a neon lights and computer-controlled throttle. The official description of the vehicle described it thus:

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.
  • A recreation of the Tron: Legacy motorcycle
  • Functional electric motorcycle
  • The ultimate homage for any fan
This custom electric vehicle was built especially for the Andrews Collection to recreate the unique motorcycles seen in the 2010 movie Tron: Legacy. It is a highly compelling work of mobile art that has an enduring connection to pop culture.
The bike was partially built by an outside firm and then sent to the Andrews’s own shop for completion. It 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 motorcycle is finished in black with a white stripe and boasts an imposing stance to match its performance.

Unfortunately, we do not quite know what the exact performance of the bike is, although I can imagine it doesn't quite meet what we saw in the actual movies.
