The aim was to try and combine the almost impossible CGI elements from the film bike into a rideable machine, with working guns and a unusual riding position.
The machine was constructed over a Kawasaki ZZR600 mainly due to the fact that the wheelbase was the same as that used in the film. Using a large four cylinder bike also gives it a great exhaust note. The whole build was a mega challenge in that the whole riding position had to be changed and the bars lowered and narrowed. A normal fuel tank and air intake system would not fit so a custom solution had to be worked. The biggest challenge was to make the mini guns work and articulate and still allow the bike to be ridden. It is a challenge to get your feet down when you stop but the guns are removable to make this easier if needed.
