While it’s true, Sims Honda, Apple Valley Honda and Northwest Honda dealerships do not sell motorcycles, what’s good for one Honda department is good for all of Honda and when one of your ‘cousins’ makes it into a big time Hollywood movie, well, you just better take note.
The Honda CRF250R opens up the new James Bond movie, Skyfall, with a chase scene through a Turkish market. Bond, played by Daniel Craig, rides his modified Honda CRF250R in a thrilling scene as he chases a henchman who is also riding a Honda CRF250R. Twenty of the motorcycles were used in filming the movie.
If you haven’t seen the movie, be sure to pay attention to that opening scene as the bikes drive on rooftops and such. If you have seen the movie…go see it again so you pay attention as the bikes drive on the rooftops and such.
We are so proud of our Honda cousins for making it to the big time and we just hope all the publicity doesn’t go to their heads.
The article below also has some information for a really cool contest that Honda is doing with the Skyfall production team, including a Bond Experience weekend and evening possibly winning one of the bikes used in the movie. It’s mostly geared towards Honda fans in the UK, but I’m sure if a Yank won, they’d still give you your prize.
