Triumph Motorcycles’ all new Tiger 900 and Scrambler 1200 will feature in the 25th James Bond film No Time To Die, released April 2020 

A couple of days ago we showed you this mad motorcycle stunt (check out the screen grab, below) from the new James Bond movie – and now that we’ve seen the official trailer, it emerges that this bike is a Triumph Scrambler 1200!

Eeek! That's a Scrambler 1200 doing things that a Scrambler 12 Triumph motorcycle probably shouldn't...

How ‘adapted’ the motorcycle has been in order to be able to do the stunt remains to be seen, but putting that to one side, there is a pretty big new partnership with the 25th official James Bond visit to the screen.

Tiger 900 and Scrambler 1200

Triumph’s design workshop team collaborated with the stunt firm from the film to configure several feature motorcycles and that included special preparation of both Tiger 900 and Scrambler 1200 models.

This is the Scrambler 1200 that James Bond rides up the side of an old castle in No Time To Die. Or it's one of the ones made for the new film, at least. Either way, it looks trick - very trick.

Triumph’s CEO Nick Bloor said: “We are delighted to partner with the latest James Bond film. 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. ”

James Bond stunt coordinator Lee Morrison added: “Triumph gave us early Tiger 900 prototypes before launch so that we could film in three 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.”
