This is the motorcycle Karl Urban will be riding when he plays the title role in Dredd, the non-camp redo of a movie based on the 2000 AD character. Buzz around the film says to expect more dark, gritty violence and less of Sylvester Stallone wearing codpieces. The bike itself appears to be based on a 2005-ish GSX-R1000 (judging by the swingarm pivots and characteristic hole where they meet the frame spars), just with a massively extended swingarm, ridiculous rearsets and a rear subframe that must be an impressive feat of engineering if its supporting a rider’s weight that far to the rear. A larger photo, plus some original Lawmaster art so you can understand what the film’s director, Pete Travis, is going for here.
