You can now buy the Batman Batpod
Having trouble finding the wright motorbike for you to ride around town in? Have no worries… Batman’s Batpod is available for auction. It will be the perfect motorbike for you to cruise around the city. Will blow up traffic that is in your way, move around sideways, and jump around from roof top to the other.
In addition, several Batpods were created for use in the films, the batpod displayed in the pictures was a “hero” batpod. It was designed by Nathan Crowley, and built by Chris Corbould.
The batpod has a custom-made chassis, metallic grey-painted fiberglass body panels. It also comes with 31-inch Hoosier racing tyres and a Honda 750 engine. Oh yes, and it also has a pair of cannons on the front.
Furthermore, the radiator and hydraulics are located in the back of the saddle, while the braking system is operated via controls on the left handle and the right pedal. Therefore, the black foam padding placed on the body, saddle and knee rests provides a degree of comfort for the prone rider.
The UK-based Prop Store is handling the auction, which will be held on Sept. 27th – although people can stop by London’s BFI IMAX to check out the bike and numerous other bits of movie memorabilia starting on the 14th. The Batpod is expected to sell for between £60,000 and £80,000, or about US$79,611 to $106,148.
