With Jose Padilha‘s remake of RoboCop, not only is the title character getting a new suit, apparently he’s getting a new mode of transportation too. While the RoboCop of 1987 was happy piloting a standard police cruiser, the RoboCop of 2014 (the film was just pushed back) will rock a sleek new motorcycle. After the jump, check out a ton of photos of Robo’s new ride as well as a video of the bike in action. Plus, get a glimpse of his gun, a fan-favorite feature of RoboCop.
The gun is visible in the 5th image. Mouse over for the numbers.
And here is the bike in action.
I always liked that RoboCop never felt like he was better than the other cops, and drove the same, crappy Detroit cars. But maybe police in this world drive motorcycles. I really don’t have much of a problem with it. Plus it looks pretty cool. Do you agree?
Directed by Jose Padilha, RoboCop will be released February 7, 2014, and stars Joel Kinnaman as the cop turned robot, alongside Abbie Cornish, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams and Jay Baruchel. Here’s the plot description:
The year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy (Kinnaman) is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
