Did you spot the Ducati Scrambler in Venom?
Begin press release:
The thrill of motorcycle riding is challenged only by the visceral adrenaline rush of a great action film, and Ducati is looking to amplify that synergy with its role in Sony Pictures’ upcoming motion picture, Venom. The film will be released nationwide October 5, with a customized Scrambler Full Throttle and Scrambler 1100 Special models sharing the spotlight as the title-character’s rides of choice, ridden by Academy Award nominated actor Tom Hardy.
Hardy’s character, Eddie Brock, and alter-ego Venom, ride the Ducati motorcycles throughout the film, with the motorcycles also being featured throughout the official trailers.
“Ducati has a long history of ties with the entertainment industry in both film and television,” said Jason Chinnock, Chief Executive Officer, Ducati North America. “With our role in the new movie Venom, we found an organic way to integrate the raw brand of Scrambler with the much-loved Marvel character in many heart-pounding scenes. It’s a perfect match, as we look to entertain motorcyclists on the streets just as Venom is sure to entertain audiences in their seats.”
Many of the exciting riding scenes were filmed on location in San Francisco, near the home of Ducati North America in Mountain View, in close proximity to the action during filming.
The Scrambler Full Throttle and Scrambler 1100 Special are currently available in Ducati dealerships worldwide, with pricing as low as $127 per month (Scrambler Full Throttle) for qualified customers through Ducati Premier financing. Ducati will also reimburse $250 toward a rider’s Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) course or state authorized rider education course with the purchase of an eligible Ducati or Scrambler motorcycle.
