Yamaha V-Max Co-Stars with Nic Cage in “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance”
Nicholas Cage is back with another Ghost Rider movie, opening Feb. 17. In the new sequel to the 2007 film “Ghost Rider”, Cage’s character Johnny Blaze rides a fiery Yamaha V-Max.
The first film had Cage riding a custom hardtail chopper but the sequel, “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance”, Cage’s stunt rider-turned-demon character rides Yamaha‘s flagship muscle cruiser. Even with the CGI-produced smoke and flames and charred appearance, the V-Max’s distinctive air intake scoops.
In the sequel, Cage plays both Johnny Blaze in his human form as well as the flame-headed demon form, whereas a stunt man played the flaming Ghost Rider role in the first film.
The V-Max also has a stunt double in “Spirit of Vengeance”. In some scenes, the Ghost Rider’s motorcycle is actually a heavily disguised Kawasaki KX.
