Iconic British motorcycle brand Triumph has announced that it is supplying bikes for the new James Bond movie, No Time To Die, which is due out in cinemas in April.
The Hinckley-based company has provided its Scrambler 1200 and Tiger 900 models for what is the 25th film in the legendary franchise. The bikes are used in several stunt sequences in the movie, as stunt coordinator Lee Morrison explained. He said: “Triumph gave us early Tiger 900 prototypes, before launch, so we could film in three key locations well before the bike’s official reveal. I have to say that we have literally thrown everything at them. Big craggy sharp rocks, deep boggy mud, high speeds, big jumps and huge climbs and descents across a variety of conditions. The Tigers really have stood up to the task incredibly well, with no mechanical issues, and to me this really proves their go-anywhere credentials.”
Triumph’s CEO Nick Bloor added: “Here at Triumph we are delighted to partner with the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die. Triumph Motorcycles is fortunate to have a rich history of featuring in many incredible blockbuster films, so the big screen is no stranger to our brand. We know that our motorcycles are hugely capable and we cannot wait to see them in action when the film airs, including the new and eagerly anticipated Tiger 900 model.”
Triumph officially unveiled the latest Tiger last night and it is expected to be in UK showrooms in March 2020, a few weeks before No Time To Die, hits the silver screen on April 2.
