Tom Cruise rides a custom Honda CRF450 in his new futuristic movie Oblivion

In Tom Cruise's upcoming movie he rides what looks like a heavily modified Honda CRF450. The futuristic movie is called Oblivion and it has a lot of footage of what Cruise does best - his own stunts. Cruise even did a fifty foot jump over Icelandic hills on the motorcycle without the help of stuntmen.

During filming, Olga Kurylenko almost seriously injured Cruise and herself. "I tried to take control of the handlebars when Tom was driving and we almost had an accident," Olga said on an Irish late nite show.

Later interviewed by Variety, Cruise explained: " Olga, listen we are moving at 50 miles an hour, please please let go. So I was driving and we'd hit a little bump and I'd be slapping her hand and I was thinking I hope the camera doesn't see me slapping her hand."

The movie stars Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko and Morgan Freeman. For a video of the bike including some of Tom Cruise's stunts follow this link.

Gas powered motorcycle in the future - gentlemen, I don't think so. Even Harley will need to go electric - or nuclear.

And what's with that rear seat? It looks completely bosozoku

I can believe he rode it round (though I have to agree with @jampy00 and say that he probably had high heeled riding boots on) but did a 50ft jump himself? I seriously doubt it. No film would have been able to get insurance for that. It's probably just Robbie Maddison as usual.

so they turned a Honda CRF450 into Brammo Engage (or a Zero MX)?

I guess they had to lower it, considering he is only 5 feet tall..tee hee
