Aprilia Motorcycles in Movies

The Italian motorcycle manufacturer known for it’s championship-winning presence in the World Superbike Championship, Aprilia, will be making an appearance in the new action-thriller Abduction, which arrives in theaters September 23.

While thrust into a world of espionage, the actor, Taylor Lautner, pilots an Aprilia Shiver 750, which is shown in the attached trailer above.

The IMDB says Abduction is “a thriller centered on a young man who sets out to uncover the truth about his life after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website.”

Regardless of how this movie will be viewed through the critics eyes, motorcyclists will have that extra enjoyment observing an Shiver 750 on the Silver Screen. And Director John Singleton must enjoy Aprilia motorcycles; pause the above trailer at 0:33, and you’ll see some computer wallpaper of 2010 World Superbike Champion Max Biaggi aboard the RSV4.

And with the launch of the movie, there is also a chance to win one of nine Aprilia Prize Packs; each prize pack consists of a leather Techno Jacket and race tee valued at $590 total. To enter, visit the Abduction Facebook page.
