According to gizmodo.com, this flashy whip was one-of-a-kind, and sold at the RM Sotheby's auction for a cool $77,000. Built for the Andrews Collection, a high-end series of cars, the bike was based off of the model shown in the 2010 "TRON: Legacy" film.
Bearing a 96-horsepower direct-drive electric motor, actual suspension, a digital electronic transmission, and hydraulic brakes, the bike works like any other fancy motorcycle (but sadly without the flashy walls-of-light from the film.)

Best of all, it was in sharp shape. According to the auction page, "After its completion by the Andrews’ in 2012, the bike has only been ridden around their facilities to ensure that it remains in functioning condition." So some lucky rider (a computer programmer or game designer, perhaps?) gets to break in this beauty like it was fresh from a parallel computerized universe.
Now if they can only get some of those "Star Wars" racing pods in development...
