We list below some of the best movies till date that have a grand display of motorcycles.
1) The Terminator Series:
The Terminator series is the first name that would come to the minds of most of the readers when we mention movies and bikes. Terminator 2: Judgment Day needs a special mention here. Directed by James Cameron and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, this movie used a 300 Kg Harley-Davidson Fat Boy. In one of the most memorable scenes of the movie, Arnold makes a 3meter jump using this bike. Today, the bike adorns the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee.
2) Ghost Rider:
Ghost Rider, released in the year 2007, and its sequel, the Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, released in early 2012, had some of the most amazing bikes. The Ghost Rider motorbike, revered as the “Hell Cycle” was a customized Yamaha VMAX. The bike was creatively given a charred look to resemble a vehicle from Hell!
3) The Fastest Indian:
This was another gem of a movie. A biographical film based on the renowned athlete Jim Thorpe, it had a mind-blowing performance by Anthony Hopkins. It had a generous use of bikes too, including two imitations of the 1920 Indian Scout and two customized Italian Ducatis used for the action-packed scenes.
4) Dhoom Series:
The Bollywood directors have also shown equal interest for biking. The Dhoom series is a classic example of this. Dhoom, released in the year 2004, starred a great real-life biking fanatic – John Abraham. He used a Suzuki Hayabusa (1300cc), and his co-stars Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra used a Suzuki GSX-R600 (600cc) & a yellow Suzuki Bandit S (1200cc) respectively. While Dhoom 2 used Suzuki GSX-R 1000, Suzuki GSR 600, & Suzuki Bandit 1200 S, Dhoom 3 flaunted a BMW K1300R and a red-white BMW S 1000 RR.
