Famous Motorcycles from Movies and Television


Have you ever seen a movie where Tom Cruise is riding around on his motorcycle and wished you too could look that cool on that? Well, you are in luck! In honor of Motorcycle Week at Carsforsale.com, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most famous bikes from movies and television. We’ve also included clips from each of the movies to refresh your memory as to just how great you could look if you owned one. We realize putting on a pair of aviator sun glasses and driving a motorcycle won’t have you looking exactly like Maverick, but it would be close.

Unfortunately we will have to wait a few years before the “Hovercruiser” from Star Trek or the “Tumbler” from The Dark Night Rises are available to the general public. However, as soon as one becomes available, we will be sure to be the first to let you know.

Tell us in the comments section which one of these is your favorite.
