Bel&Bel Real Shotaro Kaneda Bike Akira Hybrid
Shotaro Kaneda’s bike from Akira is the iconic motorcycle that fans of the manga series are familiar with, and some of them have created real-life versions including Barcelona-based Bel&Bel. This creation is based on a Yamaha Majesty YP 250 scooter, with a single-sided swingarm sourced from a Honda VFR 800.

The prototype is powered by a 250cc Yamaha motorcycle engine in the rear combined with a 1,000-W electric hub motor up front. However, the studio does plan on making a production model equipped with a 72-V/5,000-W mid-drive motor that makes 383.5 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 62 mph in 6-seconds flat while topping out at 93.2 mph. How much will it cost? A cool $26,127 USD.
