So uh, GTA Online has gone full-on Tron with its new lightcycle races

Here's a weird one: GTA Online has added a Tron-esque lightcycle mode called Deadline to its multitude of multiplayer modes, complete with arcade-like power-ups and some sick, synthetic beats. Why? Hell I dunno. But don't question it, just enjoy the neon-tinted throwback:

The motorcycle you see in the video - dubbed the Nagasaki Shotaro - isn't limited to the new Deadline mode, though you will have to play at least one round if you want to take it for a spin on the streets of Los Santos. Once you've completed a match of Deadline, head to Legendary Motorsports and you'll be able to buy your own, non-light-trailing version (that one's just for the Deadline mode).

Now the only question is, will Rockstar implement this mode in the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2? I'd be down for some cyberpunk horse racing.
