The Green Life: Tron Bike to Be Auctioned at Fancy Movie Star Party

Tron Bike to Be Auctioned at Fancy Movie Star Party

XenonBefore the Oscars on Sunday, there will be the pre-Oscars red carpet walk; and before the pre-Oscars red carpet walk, there will be innumerable pre-Oscars fancy movie star parties that you aren't invited to. One such party is Global Green's Annual Pre-Oscar Party, happening tonight at LA's fanciest movie star nightclub, the Avalon. If you were invited (which you weren't), you would see "such celebrities as Penelope Cruz, Adrian Grenier, and Orlando Bloom."

But if you're like us and want to know what's so green about the Global Green Pre-Oscar Party, you might be amazed to know that there will be an auction for a 100% electric-powered motorcycle that looks exactly like the Light Cycle from the TRON movies. (Then you'll be disappointed that you weren't invited to the auction, either.) It's called the Xenon, and it's manufactured by evolve, a company that specializes in electric motorcycles. It has an absurd starting price tag of $55,000, but then again, at least you won't be paying over $4 a gallon to fill its tank. 

Below is a video of some environmentally conscious guy with tens of thousands of dollars to blow riding this thing.
