    Default Yamaha V-Max stars in new Ghost Rider movie





    Yamaha’s 200bhp V-Max is the two-wheeled star of the new Ghost Rider movie due out shortly, replacing the custom Harley-Davidson that featured in the original film.

    The sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, stars Nicolas Cage as the motorcycle-riding, spontaneously combusting anti-hero, Johnny Blaze who is still struggling with the curse of being the Devil’s bounty hunter.

    This time he’s aboard a V-Max and is recruited by a secret sect to save a young boy from the devil, which could be Blaze’s chance to rid himself of the curse forever.

    Blaze’s V-Max is customised to look charred and burnt as if newly emerged from hell. The prop bike, seen here, was recently displayed at the 2011 Comic Con exhibition in San Diego, with the caption ‘He rides again’.

    The nature of some of the stunts, however, means that in some scenes disguised Kawasaki KX motocross bikes are used.

    Directed by Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine (of CRANK fame), some of the shots required cameramen on rollerskates being towed behind bikes with hand held cameras.

    It opens in cinemas in 3D on February 17.

    no V-max doesn't suit to this movie. They should have stayed with previous custom made bike.

    Very disappointing movie to watch especially in comparison with the 1st part.

    CGI and 3D was decent at certain points but weak story/plot/direction spoiled the whole experience. All in all a thumbs down for this movie.

    V Max looked good when it was up in flames, though!!

    Well, since the entire world will see these movies, it doesn't matter much as to which bike is being used. And who can identify it, except we the bikers.
    After all, even Indian movies feature only Japanese Sportsbikes as the lead machinery.

    But why the now old and mostly unchanged V-Max?

    Diavel... Devil in flames... A devil engulfed in fire roaring through the streets of USA... Italy fire on US streets... Ahhh... ok, Forget it, its not happening!

    saw the movie, CGi looks very well done & bike looks awesome when on fire.
    incidently had a funny effect on my 2 yr old jr biker.
    now "motu cycal bui" (motor cycle ghost) , is a part of our everyday life, be it feeding or making him sleep. the sound of any bullets thumping around at night does the trick.
    You can only go as fast as you can brake!

    Looks like a bmw.

    On the street, vMax looks monstrous. But for this role...naah! it looks too plain jane and boring. A well padded sofa seat for the ghost rider's 'hot' butt? come on.
