Imagine for a moment that you are an artificially intelligent computer system with plans to kill off all humanity in a post apocalyptic future. Got it? If you were to pattern your two-wheeled robotic progeny after an individual motorcycle design, what would you choose? The answer, at least according to Terminator Salvation director McG (yes, that's really the name he goes by), is the Ducati Hypermotard.

We can't really fault the choice of the hooligan Hypermotard as the bike to shoot pre-processed scenes of motorcycling mayhem, as the naked bike is more than capable of supporting the kind of stunt riding necessary to shoot the film.

Here's something we could do without, however: In one of the corniest lines we've heard in a good long time, McG seems to channel his inner Schwarzenegger, saying, "The bikes came through like champions... and terminated the competition!" Seriously, was that really necessary? See the footage after the break.

      I would think a modified (since they digitaly modified these bikes as well for the movie) Dodge Tomahawk screams transformer...

      I think they got the title wrong.

      Shouldn't it be Transformers: Salvation?

      Hypermotard. I chuckle every time I read that.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Hypermotard? Sounds like some type of reading disability.

      "I'm sorry, but you have a bad case of Hypermotardia."

        "You mean to tell me I'm Hypermotarded?" *pouts*

        Actually... I wouldn't mind being Hypermotard'd. Wouldn't that mean I was given a Ducati?

      Stupid fast editing, you never get a clean shot of the bike. That's why action movies suck for the last decade or so. The chase scene in the last Bond movie -- why'd they even bother to use a race driver? They could have had it parked in the lot and just played the soundtrack and shot the same ten different camera angles per second and it would have had exactly the same effect.

        Couldn't agree more.

        It is as if they are trying to induce a seizure, or trying to program people with an intersect, or something... :D

        The editing is far too fast.

      I'd love to have a Ducati. My Ducati jacket would make more sense...

        • 5 Years Ago
        lol

      I love the Hyper, in fact I own one, but knowing it's used in that movie still doesn't make me wanna see it.

      And that quote from McG is not surprising... he's a pretty big d-bag.
