Neutron Electric Tron Style Motorcycle
The 1982 Hollywood movie Tron, began the dream of a futuristic motorcycle that was destined to become reality. I remember watching the movie when it was first released, and though it was everybody’s dream, who would have imagined we would be seeing it on the streets of today.
The main actor, Kevin Flynn was a computer programmer that was drawn into the game he had created. Inside the game, Kevin used Light Cycles to race components on a grid.
I wonder if Tron Light Tanks will ever become reality?
The movie was so popular that a sequel was made in 2010, Tron: Legacy.
In this movie, Kevin’s son Sam responds to a message from his long-lost father and is teleported into the game grid digital world. Sam and Kevin unite to prevent the computer game from taking over the real world.
Tron Legacy bikes were modified to reflect the advancement in computer graphic design.

Did the Tron Motorcycle Begin with the Movie?
It appears the Tron styling and shape has been around for a bit longer. Meet the 1930 Henderson Motorcycle.

Fantasy Light Cycle Meets Reality
As children, Marc and Shanon Parker had a passion for customizing bicycles and go-carts. As adults, the Parker Brothers continue to create extraordinary vehicles while they “Dream Big… and Build Bigger”. They have managed to bring the Tron Light Cycle to life and available for purchase. Meet the NEUTRON.
The earlier NEUTRON was powered by a combustion engine.
Then came the Electric Powered NEUTRON Lightcycle and it is much quieter.
The NEUTRON is an electric motorcycle that is powered by an electric motor and Lithium Ion Batteries. These batteries can carry the NEUTRON and rider 80 miles (130 km) and reach 100 mph (160 km/hr). The NEUTRON weighs 300 lbs (136 kg).
