Bel and Bel Unveils Electric Replica Of Iconic Akira Motorcycle

Barcelona-based upcycler and art studio Bel&Bel has brought a post-apocalyptic dream ride to life with its electric replica of Shotaro Kaneda’s iconic motorcycle from Katsuhiro Otomo’s cyberpunk manga classic, Akira. The fully electric model, inspired by the dystopian manga set in a nightmarish future Tokyo, is now available to fans.

Bel&Bel is known for upcycling iconic vehicles into art pieces and furniture, and its latest creation is a working electric replica of Kaneda’s bike, which is being custom-built from scratch. The prototype, constructed from a modified Yamaha Majesty YP 250 scooter chassis and a Honda VFR 800 swingarm, features a 250 cc Yamaha motor driving the rear wheel and a 1,000-W electric hub motor to the front.

The limited build-to-order series is priced at €24,000 (about US$26,000) and includes a metal chassis with fiberglass and carbon-fiber panels, a 72-V/5,000-W mid-drive motor, three power modes plus reverse, and various high-performance specs such as a reported 520 Nm (383.5 lb.ft) of torque, 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in six seconds, and a top speed of 150 km/h (93.2 mph).

While street-legal status is not mentioned, the design replicates the manga original with a pop-up headlight, perimeter LED lighting, and a digital control panel.

Bel&Bel is currently fulfilling two private commissions before starting production on the limited series. Enthusiasts can secure their own Kaneda bike with a €5,000 (~$5 399) down payment, with the remainder due during the build process.
