Yamaha 500 TT, le modèle Tout Terrain de la 500 XT ici avec une préparation Supermotard (jante avant de 18 pouces et pneus routiers).
Ep 4.16, first of the four bikes stolen in the first scene :
It must be a light bike with such small drumbrakes and light frontfork, also the rear sprocket is large and the rear shocks are long. So it probably is based on a off-road bike Made for movie ? I was under the impression it was a customized Yamaha TT 500, but I can't recall the source...
