The Triumph Scrambler that stars in the Jurassic World movie, the fourth instalment of the Jurassic Park series, has been auctioned for $60,000 to aid prostate cancer research.
Three Scramblers were used in the film. Action hero Chris Pratt was given one as a gift, another is on display at Triumph Motorcycle headquarters and the third was auctioned for 10 days from July 23, 2105.
The auction attracted 90 bids with the money going Triumph’s official charity partner The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride which raises funds for prostate cancer research.
In the above video, action hero star Chris Pratt shows how they rigged the motorcycle to stay a certain distance from a camera and proves that he has some riding skills.
However, he also admits riding a bike is a bit stupid, yet really enjoys the Scrambler and wants one. And who wouldn’t!
The Scrambler is a cool softroader motorcycle from the British motorcycle company that reminds us of the golden days of dirt bikes, or Steve McQueen riding on the beach in the film On Any Sunday or even the TR6 Trophy that McQueen rides in The Great Escape. Not that we expect this will top either of those memorable movie moments.
I could think of more appropriate motorcycles to be riding through a dinosaur-infested jungle, but I can’t think of any that bestows as much cool as the Triumph Scrambler.
Soccer star David Beckham also chose a Triumph Scrambler for his journey through South America in a recent BBC1 documentary.
As if Beckham needs a bike to make him cool!
