Akira Motorcycle Prototype

Akira was one of the first anime (along with Odin, Vampire Hunter D, Robotech, Ronin Warriors) that I saw as a little kid back when it first came out. I didn’t know at the time what anime was, just that it was cool looking and different from the Looney Tunes that were the Saturday morning fair.

Now you soon hopefully will be able to own your very own Kaneda motorcycle. Sure it isn’t the crazy beast that Kaneda himself drove but at least this is a step towards that. If you are wondering exactly the specs on his bike, hit the jump for a full breakdown.
