Each Bond Edition motorcycle has a unique billet riser clamp with laser-etched individual edition numbering and comes with a special Bond Handover Pack that includes a numbered certificate of authenticity hand-signed by Triumph’s CEO Nick Bloor.
Of course, there is 007 branding, a special 007 “shutter” startup screen message, black anodized mudguards, grab rail, sump guard, and infills, black powder-coated swingarm and sprocket cover, an Arrow muffler with carbon fiber tips, a stainless steel headlight grilled, and black rear wheel adjusters.
There are no performance updates, except the muffler.
The engine is the same 1200cc parallel-twin with 66.2kW of power and 110Nm of torque.
The price for product placement in a movie can be up to about $A500,000, but for a Bond film it can be a whole lot more.
In fact, Heineken is believed to have paid $A65 Million to get Bond character Daniel Craig to sip their beer instead of a martini in the 2015 film, Spectre.
So we have no idea how much Triumph has paid to have the modified Scrambler 1200 and Tiger 900 included.
So why is a baddy riding an 803cc Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled in the main chase scene?
Bond film espionage?
Has Ducati snuck in some free screen time in an apt case of Bond film espionage or did they pay, too?
Or is this a deliberate effort by Triumph to make their scrambler competitor look bad by being associated with buddies while their Scrambler is associated with the hero?
