The Tron light cycle is (almost) real - meet the Lotus C-01

Holy crap! The light cycle is real! Light races!

Woah, woah, hold your horses, don’t get too excited. The Lotus C-01 isn’t going to spew light trails. Its link to Tron: Legacy - besides its near similar look - is that the Lotus C-01 is designed by Daniel Simon, the same man who conceptualised the light cycles in the sci-fi flick.

What? No light trails? Bah, sounds boring.

Not if you’re a biker fanatic. Straddle its 1195cc 75-degree short-stroke V-Twin engine between your legs, and you’ll feel the power of this monster. Just lie across the bike, hear the engine roar, and imagine you’re gearing up for the race of your life.

Wait a minute, Lotus makes sports cars. Is this a hoax?

No, though technically, Lotus isn’t making the Light Cycle wannabe. The C-01 is a collaboration between motorsport veterans and Kodewa, known for its expertise in racecar building. Forget the details, wouldn’t you want to tell people you own a Lotus?

Ok, it’s not a light cycle. Why should I bother?

Why? Because this two-wheeled wonder’s 200 horsepower means it's devilishly fast, and you can expect a smooth ride thanks to the two remote reservoir shock absorbers too. Oh, and did we mention it comes in three colour palettes that’ll make people go green with envy? That's if the huge Lotus branding doesn't do the trick already though.

Time to suit up and get this bike

Good luck with that. There’ll only be 100 C-01s for purchase. We’re guessing it’s going to cost way more than the usual choppers out there. But hey, if you’ve deep pockets, head on over to the Lotusforums and keep an eye on its availability.
