Three motorcycles from the action blockbuster motion picture Mad Max ‘Fury Road’ will be on display at the Sydney Motorcycle Show on November 20-22 at Sydney Oympic Park.

The specially modified Yamaha motorcycles featured in the movie that was shot on location in Namibia, Africa, with many of the stunts performed by Australia’s top FMX and motocross riders. 

Event Organiser Troy Bayliss says the display will be a popular attraction with visitors of all ages to the Sydney Motorcycle Show.

“Although these bikes returned to Australia following the filming of the movie, it is a rare opportunity for the public to have the chance to view them,” Bayliss says.

“Anyone who has seen the latest instalment of the Mad Max films is aware of how big a part motorcycles played in the film. To have a selection of the actual bikes used in the movie on display brings a slice of Hollywood to the Sydney Motorcycle Show.

“It makes it all the more special knowing that Australian riders played a major role in actually doing the stunts, under the direction of Stephen Gall.”

Gall, who was the Motorcycles Specialist Coordinator on the movie will also be a special guest at the Sydney Motorcycle Show.

“This is really rare opportunity for Australians to come out see these bikes up close,” Gall said.

“It is fantastic that the producers of the movie, Kennedy Miller Mitchell, have granted special permission for the bikes to be on display at the Sydney Motorcycle Show.  

“We are going to hold some presentations for visitors to the show to come and discuss the motorcycles and the stunts that were performed in the movie,” Gall says.
