It must steer from the front wheel. I recall that about the time Tron came out someone tried to emulate the bikes and the rear wheel steering was unworkable as it was dynamically unstable.

Maybe with "steer by wire" it would work.

Did you notice the bubble car in the background on one photo?

This bike is 20 kinds of cool. However, it needs a person on it for a sense of scale.

That black thing in front of the building is a car? Thought it was a Thule top.

Somehow, it's easier for me to picture this guy on it, rather than a person.

Pardon me for thinking a meeting with a car crusher would be a good option for that total failure at design and styling.
As my Gran would have said "Its neither use nor ornament".

If you click on ATOMO and VOXAN on the left hand side under Product Design there's some more bikes.

That Atomo is a nice looking bike. The Voxan looks like it could do well on the US market.

Didn't the Tron light cycle travel only in 90 degree cardinal directions with instantaneous corners?

Didn't cast shadows, either.
