Tron: Legacy – a sci-fi flick from the house of Walt Disney is releasing in 3D on the 17th of December worldwide. The movie features space age motorcycles with neon lights leaving a trail of energy as they traverse their way. While the movie itself is a big enough franchise to make waves across the globe, there is another reason for us to talk about it. Mumbai based Vardenchi Motorcycles will be creating the replicas of these light emitting Tron bikes for display at various locations. these rare replicas will then be given away to contest winners. Vardenchi has done a similar activity earlier during the release of the Ghost Rider movie. A replica of the Ghost Rider motorcycle created by Vardenchi was displayed to the public and was also given away as a prize in a lucky draw. The base designs for the Tron Lightcycles were made by Syd Mead, and were later worked upon by Daniel Simon, a former designer at Bugatti.
The donor bike used for these concept motorcycles is a 153cc machine (Has to be the Yamaha FZ16 engine). These bikes will have immaculate fit-finish and will be replete with neon and LED lights.
Akshai Varde, CEO, Vardenchi Motorcycles said, “Building the replica of the Tron Light Cycle for Disney has been one of the most exciting projects I have worked on. The modern Sci-fi design will appeal to not only Bikers but people of all ages and interests. The makers who worked with Disney to create the original TRON bike have done a marvelous job of creating a fantasy bike of all times. I personally, would love to own one!”
K. Seshasaye, Director, Marketing & Distribution, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (India) said, “Walt Disney Pictures is committed to creating immersive experiences for our audiences across the country. TRON fans across India will get an opportunity to win these futuristic machines through a nationwide contest that will be launched soon,”
