BMW R 1200 C Cruiser
The BMW R 1200 C motorcycle plays a big part in an action packed chase scene in Tomorrow Never Dies. The BMW was stolen by Bond, and used in the chase sequence through the streets of Saigon, Vietnam, ridden by both James Bond and Wai Lin, a Chinese secret agent. In a breathtaking move, Bond jumps the bike from one rooftop onto another and over the whirling blades of a pursuing helicopter.
Apparently fifteen R 1200 C bikes were used, 12 of which were destroyed in the making of the film. A stunt man drove the BMW Cruiser R 1200 C at 60 mph to successfully make the 44-foot leap across the roof of the two buildings. Around the same time the movie was released, the BMW 750iL and R1200 could be purchased in a special promotional deal.
One of the BMW motorcycles used in the movie was on display in The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, UK, as a part of a special exhibition on Bond Vehicles and Props.
Other notable motorcycle appearances include Bond's Yamaha XJ650 Turbo in Never Say Never Again (1983) and a Honda CFR250R in SkyFall (2012)
