James Bond and Triumph Motorcycles team up in No Time To Die

The 25th James Bond film, No Time To Die, will feature Triumph Motorcycles in two starring roles

James Bond No Time To Die

TRIUMPH MOTORCYCLES and the James Bond film franchise have teamed up in an official partnership that will see 007 riding Triumph motorcycles in the next action-packed film.

The Triumph design workshop team collaborated with the stunt team from the film to configure several feature motorcycles, including the special preparation of Tiger 900 and Scrambler 1200 models for extreme and dynamic action sequences.

The bikes used in the film are almost identical to those that roll off the production line at the Hinckley factory, With the Tiger 900 only wearing minor changes when compared to its production cousin. Only the front mudguard is removed, an accessory Arrow end can is used, rear footrests are removed and some grippy off-road tyres have been fitted.

The Scrambler 1200 seen in the pictures above is slightly more modified with a high-level front mudguard, low-line seat, dash removed and slick looking blacked-out paint job with distressed Triumph logos on the fuel tank. oh and not forgetting the slash-cut exhaust pipes which, as you can tell from the video above, sound pretty sweet!

Triumph’s CEO Nick Bloor said; “Here at Triumph we are delighted to partner with the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die. Triumph Motorcycles is fortunate to have a rich history of featuring in many incredible blockbuster films, so the big screen is no stranger to our brand. We know that our motorcycles are hugely capable and we cannot wait to see them in action when the film airs, including the new and eagerly anticipated Tiger 900 model.”

James Bond stunt coordinator Lee Morrison said; “Triumph gave us early Tiger 900 prototypes before launch so we could film in 3 key locations well before the bike’s official reveal. I have to say that we have literally thrown everything at them. Big craggy sharp rocks, deep boggy mud, high speeds, big jumps and huge climbs and descents across a variety of conditions. The Tigers really have stood up to the task incredibly well, with no mechanical issues, and to me, this really proves their go-anywhere credentials.” 

No Time To Die will be released globally from April 2, 2020.
