• Tom Cruise’s ’Knight and Day’ Ducati spied

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.
