Motorcycles have always been the epitome of cool. Some grab attention with their design and performance while some others feature in movies and find an immortal place in people's hearts. And when cool cats like Scarlett Johansson, Tom Cruise and Arnold Schwarzenegger ride it; the drool quotient of these road burners reach new heights. Let's take a look at five timeless motorcycles that stole the spotlight in these legendary movies.
CCM Spitfire: Black Widow
The Blackout Spitfire was already the most successful bike for the niche Bolton-based motorcycle company CCM. And with its Hollywood debut in the latest Black Widow movie, it literally is spitting fire among enthusiasts. Adorning a stealth-black polished look, the gorgeous motorcycle complements the even gorgeous Scarlett Johansson in more ways than one.
2001 Ducati 996: The Matrix Reloaded
The Matrix made a come-back in 2004 with an action-packed chase scene that took people's breath away. What made it even more fascinating was the fact that the entire highway the scene was shot on was constructed right from scratch. And, the mighty Ducati 996. Ridden by Carry-Ann Moss' Trinity in an intense chase with flying bullets and cars, the 996 was the one that took all the limelight. So much, that Ducati announced a blue-green Matrix Edition of the 996.
Kawasaki ZZR 250: Kill Bill Vol. 1
Speeding down the neon-lit streets of Tokyo, this yellow Kawasaki ZZR 250 looks no less than a Hattori Hanzo Samurai sword. And this motorcycle, despite its short appearance, is so synonymous with the movie that every time you spot it, you'll be reminded of the bloody revenge in Kill Bill. And what takes the scene and the bike a notch ahead is Uma Thurman riding in her full-leather attire.
Harley Davidson Fat Boy: Terminator 2
The Terminator 2: Judgement Day is, no doubt, one of the best sequels in the history of cinema. And it has a lot to do with Arnold Schwarzenegger and his Harley Davidson Fat Boy; especially when he was being chased by the bad Terminator T-1000. This scene gained many a fans for the movie and motorcycle alike.
Triumph Street Triple 995: Mission Impossible 2
The Mission Impossible franchise is known for its motorcycle scenes. After all, Tom Cruise, one of the producers of the movies, also happens to be a huge motorcycle-nut. The movies have featured many spectacular motorcycles to the likes of the Triumph 800 Tiger, BMW S1000RR, BMW RnineT, etc. But, the Triumph Street Triple 995 is the one that steals the show. Tom Cruise behind the handlebars only elevates it magnificence.
