The opening credits of the 23rd James Bond film, Skyfall, feature a brace of Honda motorcycles shot on location in Istanbul and Adana, Turkey, earlier this year.

Honda (UK) unveiled the actual CRF250R motocross bikes used in the film at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu this week.

Twenty CRF250R were provided, to be adapted for stunt work and styled to suit the plot of the film, which opens in the UK on October 26. One is a Turkish police bike that villain Patrice (Ola Rapace) seizes after a policeman crashes, the other is a Turkish merchant's bike that James Bond (Daniel Craig) uses to pursue Patrice. Both bikes feature extensive modifications courtesy of Chris Corbould's award-winning special effects team.

The film unit also used two Honda CRF450Rs for HD filming of the chase sequences, because they allowed the camera crew to keep up with the action.

The Skyfall police and street merchant bikes, alongside an unmodified CRF250R, were unveiled at the National Motor Museum's Bond In Motion exhibition, showcasing 50 vehicles used in the various Bond adventures, which runs until December 31.
