According to the Chinese calendar, 2010 is the year of the Tiger. See if you can find the Tiger in the following photos:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
No Tiger? Correct. But you might have seen a Bull:
And you might have seen some knobby tires, a high mount enduro-style off-road front fender, about 3″ more suspension travel than the standard 5″, and some new handguards, among other modifications . . . not to mention the flat olive drab paint job.
Why would someone paint a couple bikes olive drab? For that matter, why would someone paint six bikes in that color:
Either the U.S. Army is ordering a squadron of stealth killer bikes, or maybe it has something to do with this man:
and a certain movie that the Brammo Enertia is scheduled/rumored to appear in.
Because, apparently, when Jackie Chan rides a motorcycle or drives a car or sits on a chair or touches anything that could possibly be used as a weapon, it’s going to get a little banged up. And when they film a movie with Jackie, it might involve a few takes before he’s satisfied with the result. If that’s correct, then you might as well kiss these bad babies goodbye.
Jackie Chan connection confirmed! From elmoto.net, Brian Wismann said: “Brammo got the chance to flex some of it’s own off-road design skills in converting a bone-stock Enertia into a dirt capable, movie jump bike for Jackie Chan.”
