BMW Motorrad has a long tradition of appearing in films and has returned to the dark side in the last of the Resident Evil series.
Ukrainian-born American actress Milla Jovovich rides a BMW S 1000 XR in the final battle against evil in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter scheduled for release in January 2017.
Following on from Resident Evil: Retribution, Alice is the only survivor of humanity’s last stand against the undead hordes.
She returns to Raccoon Cty where it all began and where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering forces for a final strike against the remaining survivors of the apocalypse.
In a BMW-powered race against time Alice joins forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, to do battle with the undead hordes and new mutant monsters.
It’s not the first time BMW has appeared in a Resident Evil film as the K 1200 R was used in Resident Evil Extinction.
Other notable BMW film appearances include the short-lived R 1200 C cruiser in the James Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, Matt Damon riding a Rockster in The Bourne Legacy and the Bollywood Dhoom:3 featuring a S 1000 RR and K 1300 R.
BMW’s romance with the burgeoning Indian market continues with the first bike from their joint deal with Indian manufacturer TVS being the upcoming BMW G 310.
TVS will soon release their Apache RTR 300 powered by same 313cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine as the G 310 R and is mated to six-speed transmission.
