Green Hornet: Harley V-Rod Muscle

V-Rod Big Screen Debut

When the 3-D super-hero action comedy Green Hornet hits big screens, a customized Harley-Davidson V-Rod motorcycle will have a featured role.

Ridden by the Green Hornet’s sidekick, Kato, in several scenes throughout the movie, the custom Harley V-Rod Muscle features a chopped rear fender, H-D V-Rod Destroyer wheels, rear-set foot controls, and a one-off LED headlamp.

Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) is the son of LA’s most prominent and respected media magnate and perfectly happy to maintain a directionless existence on the party scene until his father (Tom Wilkinson) mysteriously dies, leaving Britt his vast media empire.

Following the death of his father, Britt Reid, heir to his father’s large company, teams up with his late dad’s assistant Kato to become a masked crime fighting team.

Playboy Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) becomes the new publisher of Los Angeles’ "The Daily Sentinel" after the sudden death of his father.

Britt’s party life is about to change when he and his driver and kung fu expert, Kato (Jay Chou), stop a robbery.

With the help of Kato of his custom Harley-Davidson V-Rod Muscle, Britt starts a new career of fighting crime as the masked superhero "The Green Hornet".

The Green Hornet movie, starring Seth Rogan as the Green Hornet and Jay Chou as Kato on the custom Harley V-Rod Muscle, just opened nationwide in theaters on Jan. 14, 2011.
