Batman's new motorcycle for next film - The Dark Knight

Published: 20 June 2007

The Batmobile will be replaced with this crazy motorcycle creation in the next Batman film – The Dark Knight – which hits cinemas in 2008.

Incredibly, the new motorcycle, which has been designed and built in the UK, is actually a runner and will feature in several stunts in the new Batman film.

No fewer than six of the machines, which go under the name “Batpod” have been built. During filming they’ve been ridden by stuntman Jean-Pierre Goy (Who has also doubled for James Bond), rather than Batman himself, actor Christian Bale.

The Batpod was revealed on Tuesday in New York at the Licencing fair, where it was announced that toy maker Mattel will be offering a model version of the Batman motorcycle.
