Honda unveiled its activities surrounding its involvement in the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall, giving fans a look behind the scenes at footage and images of James Bond on a modified Honda CRF250R dirt bike.

The material is taken from the characteristic opening chase sequence, where Bond pursues a henchman (played by Ola Rapace) through a Turkish street market.

Twenty of the Honda CRF250R motorcycles were used in the movie’s action scenes and by stunt crew teams. They were modified by Chris Corbould’s award-winning Special Effects team for filming, which took place in Istanbul and Adana, Turkey earlier this year.

To see exclusive behind the scenes footage and images from Skyfall, log on to a bespoke Facebook tab on Facebook/HondaCarsUK.
The footage gives an exclusive snapshot of the stunt crew’s preparations, with insider commentary by chief stunt co-ordinator, Gary Powell.

Honda (UK) is hosting a silent auction to win the modified Honda CRF250R used by henchman, Patrice, to escape from Bond in the opening sequence. The proceeds will benefit Honda (UK)’s three nominated charities – NSPCC, Greenfingers and Nationwide Association of Blood Bikers (NABB).
