TRON: Legacy, a film remembered purely for its vehicles. And now, you can buy one, thanks to a wonderful replica of its electronically-powered motorcycle up for sale.

The perfectly driveable masterpiece was made by the Andrews Collection and is going up for auction at Sotheby’s at the start of May, for a guide of as little as US$25,000.

This bike has 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.

Far more importantly, it's possibly the coolest looking electric vehicle around, and “the ultimate homage for any fan,” apparently.

It wasn’t entirely made by Andrews Collection, but they finished it off and it boasts a en exceptionally low seat height of 28.5in, “making it easy to ride even at low speeds.”

It hasn’t been driven outside yet, just throughout the Andrews Collection facility by some mechanics that no doubt couldn’t believe their luck.
