Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are both stars in the new "Knight and Day" movie, released on June 23rd. But next to them there is another star: a Ducati Hypermotard, that is in fact an Aprilia SXV550 in disguise. Wait, what?

Aprilia is being used as a stunt bike, while Ducatti is used for low-speed rides. And how the Hypermotard is just to heavy and too fragile to pull off the stunts, the team opted to an Aprilia. So why hiding an Aprilia under a Ducatti skin? Maybe because Cruise really wanted to drive a Ducatti in the movie, who knows!

Err, dude it’s Tom Cruise riding on that bike. He’s so cool and awesome on that photo. Well, you’re just envy I guess. He got a hot Ducati and a Cameron Diaz as well.

There are only two things I can say about this one. Cool bike, uncool rider.

Haven’t seen the movie yet, but I think it’s fine if you hide Aprilia underneath Ducati just for the sakek of the movie.
