Several Triumph motorcycles can be seen in the 25th James Bond film No Time To Die (2021), including a custom Scrambler 1200, ridden by Bond himself.

In the last part of the pre-title sequence, which takes place in Matera Italy, James Bond (Daniel Craig) is being chased by Safin’s assassin Primo (Dali Benssalah) who rides a black Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE motorcycle. Bond is able to take the motorcycle from Primo and uses it to race back to his hotel. On this fast ride through town Bond rides through narrow streets, over stone steps and makes a huge jump, landing next to a busy crowd.

Triumph have a long illustrious history in designing, developing, advancing and manufacturing premium motorcycles and was able to provide several customized stunt motorcycles for the filming in Matera.

The Scrambler 1200 XE was specially modified to handle the rigours of the Italian action sequence. Stunt coordinator Lee Morrison worked with the Triumph team to create a stunt motorcycle that would not only perform at a high level, but would look good while doing it.

“First and foremost, as a stunt coordinator I have to be sure that we can achieve the action on that motorcycle. Is it agile and powerful enough for the stunt riders to achieve what I want them to? And also, crucially, does it fit the story of the film in a way that’s credible on screen. We loved the look of the Scrambler 1200 XE and rode it absolutely flat out. I mean as aggressive as you can ride a motorcycle. Lighting it up off-road, drifting it through really slippery streets in Matera, hitting steps flat out in third gear, quick direction changes, jumps, everything you could imagine, and that bike performed brilliantly.”
- Lee Morrison, stunt coordinator, No Time To Die.
