    Noticed in the previews a few times now and each time I catch the frame on the bike and think...That's a speed. Finally had a minute to look it up and sure enough; appears to be an RS with with some mods; stubby cans, new headlight, maybe some dash work but otherwise unchanged...well, apart from its ability to drop, twist like a pretzel, and slide under a semi's trailer.

    Ok, now that Idris rides a Speed Triple, he truly IS the "Sexiest Man Alive". I'd have placed him in the Top 10 before OhCrumOn's post. ;)

    They look similar bikes but if you look closely you will see the differences. To start you off. 1 the cans are in different positions, 2 the seat is different and 3 the tank has been shaved down. Through the grapevine ive heard they used 10 x speed triples in the film.

    I think a couple of triumphs were used on the last mission impossible film. A tiger and either a speed or street triple while Tom Cruise's character used a BMW R nineT. I watched the film before I joined the triumph family so I didn't fully pay attention.

    I saw the film on friday, I found it hilariously entertaining, and full of weird and wonderful 'physics' as per all F&F films. I loved it!
