Earlier this year, Jurassic world, the 4th instalment of the iconic Jurassic Park series earned the honour of being one of the most successful films ever made. The movie’s poster features American actor Chris Pratt riding a classic Triumph motorcycle alongside multiple Velociraptors. This bike, the Triumph Scrambler has caught the attention of motorcycle enthusiasts all over the world. The bike used in the movie will be up for auction this week.
The Scrambler is based on the iconic Triumph Bonneville with some off-road styling. The bike features a twin cylinder 865cc engine. The engine has a peak power of 54 bhp at 7000 rpm and has a torque output of 69 Nm at 5000 rpm.
There were 3 motorcycles customised exclusively for the movie. After the shoot, 1 was gifted to actor Chris Pratt and one is displayed at the Triumph headquarters in the UK. The 3rd bike will go under the hammer this month.
The bike will be auctioned on e-commerce portal e-bay on July 24. The auction will go live at 12:30 am Indian Standard Time. It will be live for 10 days starting from July 24. The bike will be sold to the highest bidder. Upon purchase, a certificate of authenticity will be provided to the customer.
The proceeds from the sale will go to Triumph’s fundraising partner, the Distinguished Gentleman’s ride. The ride is held annually worldwide to raise funds to be used for prostate cancer research.
