David Beckham stars in Belstaff film

Former soccer star and long-time motorcycle fan David Beckham stars in a short Hollywood film to promote British motorcycle clothing brand Belstaff and Triumph Motorcycles.

While he rides several different models in the film, one of the bikes looks like a customised version of the upcoming water-cooled Bonneville expected to be unveiled at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan in November.

The bike has upside-down forks, a larger fuel tank, twin brake discs and what looks like a radiator.

The short film, called Outlaws, has a distinctly Quentin Tarantino feel and has a large injection of Hollywood from the producer Liv Tyler to big-name stars such as Harvey Keitel and Cathy Moriarty, plus up-and-coming star Katherine Waterston.

Beckham has been a motorcycle fan for years but has only been able to dabble in his passion seriously since he retired from professional football in 2013.

While he owns a Ducati Desmosedici RR, Confederate F131 Hellcat Combat and a custom-built 1940s chopper with a S&S Knucklehead 93″ engine, he has long been associated with Triumph.

Last year, he rode through South America on a Triumph Scrambler with friends for a TV documentary.

This time he rides several different Triumphs in the short film where he seems to play a stuntman in some exotic circus featuring bearded ladies and a tattooed man.

The film was shot in Mexico and has been produced to showcase Belstaff gear. It will be released on September 22.David Beckham on a custom Triumph Bonnneville
