I wonder why Ducati didn't ask to have their current superbike featured in the film. Guess they got some leftovers to get rid of. Make mine red, though.

Default It was an MV AND a Ducati, dumbass

For those accussing Sean of being a dumbass, they should go see the movie again. Sure there was an MV in the movie (at the beginning and near the end), but the entire highway scene (which is the scene that Sean is referring to) was a Ducati 996.



Sean, stick by your guns.

Aw c'mon. The most entertaining part of any movie is watching someone ride down the street on an inline4 that sounds exactly like a Harley. Or watching someone dirtbiking on a Suzuki RM250 that sounds like a Honda 650 4stroke. Or a BMW airhead that sounds like a Honda CB750.



Like a .45 auto that fires 20 shots or Civil War era desperados firing cartridge pistols or cowboys in the 1880s carrying model 1894 carbines.... these things only add to the viewing pleasure. I mean, how can you beat Ben Affleck telling his compatriots in "Pearl Harbor" that to survive against Zeros they have to rely on the P-40's superior manuverability?



My only question is, "Do all the cars in the Matrix universe drive around with contact exploders attached to drums of naptha in the trunk, like in most Hollywood movies?"

Sean removed that part of the story (Trinity jumping a bike into the guardhouse) after we corrected him. See his apology above.

God, it's gorgeous, isn't it? Does anyone know where I can find a long-term test of the MV? I'm really considering a splurge, but I don't want it if, like my older Duc, it's a pain in the ti*s to keep on the road .

Anyone have a closer look at those pictures?



One of the pictures is clearly taken with stunt-doubles. The trinity looks about 25 years older, and the guy looks completely different.

You must mean the one where she is zipping around a car- I have to agree, they should have photoshopped that picture or something- obviously not her.
