A new Batpod was created for the movie with modern scientific take; the bike has 20" front and rear tires and is powered by a high-performance, water-cooled, single-cylinder engine — geared toward the lower end for faster acceleration and with no exhaust pipes: the exhaust is routed through the hollow steel/aluminum/magnesium tubing used for the frame of the bike. The Batpod ejects out of the Tumbler’s front end, with the Tumbler’s front wheels becoming the Batpod’s front and rear wheels. For the film, the bike is armed with grappling hooks, cannons, and machine guns. One action sequence in the film shows the wheels rolling against their normal axes, seemingly for added stability in sharp turns or other maneuvers. | Property of Warner Bros. Pictures
