Daniel Simon is The Man when it comes to building concept motorcycles so over the top they’re seemingly impossible. Simon’s latest creation, The Detonator, is the world’s most expensive electric motorcycle and it looks like some kind of feverish kid’s dream of what his ideal bike would look like.
You’d hardly be surprised if we told you Simon pulled some inspiration from the sci-fi world as it was Simon, with a little help from toy manufacturer Parker Brothers, who created the Lightcycle for the movie Tron.
The Detonator sports a sticker price of $150,000, so you’ll have to be a well-heeled individual indeed to park one in your garage. The bike clocks in at 11.5 feet long, it’s powered by lithium-ion batteries and gets somewhere between 80 to 100 miles per charge.
And the best thing about it? It’s not just eye candy. The Detonator can hit speeds in excess of 120 mph.
Simon himself says the Detonator is a “street cruiser bike built for humanoid droids.”
The Detonator features a unique chassis design and this elegant, futuristic and expensive electric motorcycle has been realized with large wheels at the front and the back to give the necessary traction to lay down all that power. The wheels check in at a monstrous 30 inches and 27 inches.
If you find yourself so obsessed that you have to have one, the Detonator is actually available in the United States, Saudi Arabia, and Europe, with a mighty dear price tag of – just to reiterate the stunning price of being at the cutting edge – $150,000.
You can own a Detonator sending your check or money order to either a Parker Brother Outlet, or from the Cosmic Motors studio.
