The last installment of Resident Evil (The Final Chapter) hit theaters last week and in it, zombie killer extraordinaire Alice (Milla Jovovich) finds her way aboard the latest in post-apocalyptic performance, a BMW S1000XR. Amazingly, this isn’t Alice’s first time aboard a motorcycle – specifically a BMW– as she is seen motoring across the desert on a BMW K1200R in the franchise’s third installment, Extinction. Apparently, BMW is the bike to have when the zombie apocalypse takes place. Today BMW reported a weekend sales spike among the undead, brain eater demographic.
Jovovich isn’t a skilled motorcyclist (her stunt double lost an arm filming a motorcycle scene in The Final Chapter), but for an unrelated movie, Survivor, Jovovich did attempt learning the basics of motorcycle operation. Had she true motorcycle skills she may have made our Top Ten Hottest Biker Movie Women.
From BMW: Alice rides the adventurous sporty BMW S 1000 XR as she must return to where the nightmare began – The Hive in Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. Fortunately, the S 1000 XR is Alice’s perfect partner for the ride of her life. Even at high speeds, the bike’s agility and dynamics remain steadfast. It’s a motorcycle that offers the dynamic performance of a racer, the upright seat position of an adventure machine and the endurance of a tourer.
