Mission Impossible: Tom Cruise bike chase around Arc de Triomphe

The latest Mission Impossible Fallout trailer features Tom Cruise riding the wrong way around the famous Arc de Triomphe roundabout pursued by the police on his BMW R nine T Scrambler (which sounds suspiciously like an in-line four).

The chase ends with Cruise rolling along the ground after T-boning a car, but not before spinning the bike around with a quick burnout.

The film hits cinemas on July 25, 2018.

The bikes of the Mission Impossible Franchise

The Mission Impossible franchise has a history of using and abusing motorbikes and Cruise is a self-confessed bike nut. Here's a rundown of the machinery used in previous films.

Mission Impossible 2 - Triumph Speed Triple vs Triumph Daytona

It was an all British affair in the second installment of Mission impossible, Cruise rode a Triumph Speed Triple and he was pursued by a baddie on a Daytona. The chase took place on and off-road, with keen-eyed viewers noting the seemless switch to knobbly tyres and back.

Mission Impossible 3 - Triumph Bonneville Scrambler

Sticking with Triumph but this time a Bonneville Scrambler. One of the bikes supplied for the film was sold at auction by Bohnams for £22,145 in 2006 when a new one would have cost £7,899.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation - BMW S1000RR (a fleet of them)

Motorbikes really took centre-stage in the fifth film, with an extended chase sequence featuring BMW S1000RRs. Cruise actually starts off in a car, but nicks the bike of a fallen baddie and carries on with that.
