Bond rides a KLR - of course!

While having coffee and browsing USA Today I see a story on the new 007 flick, "Skyfall". The picture shows him sitting on a beat-up early KLR complete with IMS tank and ammo can panniers. I almost spit up my coffee! Apparently Bond knows a true battle weapon when he sees one!

Check out the trailer http://www.skyfall-movie.com/site/

A quick google search shows it to be a CRF250R:

"Daniel Craig as James Bond rides a Honda CRF250R in the new 007 movie Skyfall (2012), which will premier in London, UK on October 26. A total of twenty modified-for-stunts CRF250R were used in the making of the opening scenes of the movie which were shot earlier this year in Istanbul and Adana, Turkey. You’ll see James Bond on a Turkish merchant’s bike pursuing a villain who rides a stolen Turkish police Honda.

The bikes are now on display at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, United Kingdom as part of the Bond In Motion exhibition. "

Yeah, I have no doubt that the bikes they actually filmed in the action scenes weren't KLRs. I know my KLR won't do THAT!

But, I'm pretty damn sure that the picture in USA Today was a KLR. I couldn't find it online though.

And the moral of this thread is that it takes a lot of ugly paint to pass a Honda off as a KLR

We all know people who bash KLR have never ridden or owned one. They got too much orange under their nose to smell the roses.

Just fishing for trolls.

Yeah, that ain't no KLR. Swing arm is wrong, forks WAY too fat. That said...I am avowed KLR rider. I love my pig.
