I was told that the one that gets ridden off a building in Matrix Reloaded wasn't really an MV. The bodywork was, but the underlying bike wasn't. I think it was a Monster.
Oddly enough, they filmed parts of the chase scene on the street below my office. The car chase hits the streets coming out of the parking garage where I parked my MV every day. I had to park elsewhere for three days during filming, which was taken care of by the film crew. They also paid for a full month of my parking for the inconvenience.
I suffered through all of "Art of War" because I heard there was an MV in it. I think it was less than ten seconds of screen time. Not worth it.
As I recall, the one in "Gone in 60 Seconds" was an Oro. I met a team mechanic at Laguna Seca AMA/WSB weekend the year I was racing, and he said that he was at the dealer that either supplied or brokered the bike for that. He said it came back with the rear tire worn to the cords from burnouts.
I suppose the real question is, when will an MV appear in a *good* movie?
