Back in 2001, cinemas around the world echoed to the sound of a CCM 644 being ridden by the stunning Angelina Jolie in the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movie. 

You needed to be a real CCM aficionado however to spot the Lancashire brand’s flagship model as the bike was heavily modified and unbranded.

So, when the call came in from the Bond production team to put forward one of our bikes for consideration for the next 007 movies.CCM was very excited at the prospect. 

Our bike was shortlisted to the final two however due to the budget demands of the Bond franchise.CCM was unable to commit, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Down but not out, raised were CCM’s hopes by the interest from other production companies were impressed by the machines on the show and the Bolton firm’s ability to deliver a bike to fit the brief.

Severe testing

Within a few short weeks of receiving the disappointing news about the Bond movie, a call came in inviting CCM to supply a bike for testing by the stunt team for a big-budget film. 

The bike went under severe punishment on their off-road testing ground flying up obstacles and flying over table-top jumps.

The bike performed so well straight off the line the team felt able to use the standard production CCM bikes in all of the stunt sequence rather than their usual lookalike dirtbikes. 

This feedback was the news CCM needed, and a studio order was placed for six identical machines to serve different purposes in the movie.

With the hair-raising stunts to be performed by possibly the most celebrated female stunt rider ever – Sarah Lezito. 

And the movie? The new Marvel Black Widow feature film, initially slated for release on 01 May, and delayed until 06 November 2020 due to the pandemic. 

The chance to create a special edition of this stellar machine was too good to miss. So the team got to work on a tribute model. Designed to pay homage and emulate the style of this most striking of superhero’s wheels. 

The bike shares the same spirit with the star of the movie however whereas the model Scarlett Johansson rides in the film has a rugged utilitarian look.

The final production version has a far more polished look and feel. 

The difference starts with the hand-painted “Blackout” colour scheme adding a deep metallic black finish. To the carbon-fibre headlight cowl and fuel tank, with contrasting grey panels and red detailing. 

The rich-red anodized complimented with machined yokes and triple clamps. 

 Movie

A luxurious dark grey microsuede dual saddle provides the perfect perch from which to admire the curved lines of the tank and underpinning all of this.

The Spitfire signature handmade, steel trellis frame, finished in a deep pearlescent black powder coating. 

Thumbing the purposeful 600cc motor into life draws your attention to the stylish new slash-cut exhaust system mounted high on the bikes offside for maximum ground clearance. 

A new performance map and revised gearing will ensure this new hero from the Spitfire fleet, will be great fun on your favourite broad. 

And the price? Well, you don’t need to be a Hollywood movie star to afford this stellar machine! 

The base model retails for just £8995 OTR in the UK. With an expansive range of optional extras with the aptly titled Action, Hero and Legend packs. 

 

Following a highly successful teaser campaign, the bike will finally be revealed at. The Malle Mile event in Kent on Friday 21 August at 3 pm. With a unique landing page going live at the same time at www.ccm-motorcycles.com/
