If you haven’t seen Jurassic World yet, you are truly missing out. Amazing special effects aside, the film features a host of Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG models along with a trail-ready Triumph Scrambler ridden by raptor wrangler Chris Pratt.

According to a July 20 press release issued by MotorsportsNewswire.com, Triumph built three bikes for the film. One is on display at their corporate headquarters; one was given to the leading actor; the final will be auctioned off on eBay with proceeds going to The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. These motorcycle gatherings raise money to fight prostate cancer, with attendees dressed in the finest vintage fashion.
The Scrambler is essentially a highly modified version of their classic Bonneville. These small and nimble Café Racers were made popular by British biker gangs, such as the Mods and the Rockers.
To see it in action, watch the video below, uploaded by Universal Pictures May 29, of Chris Pratt riding the motorcycle being auctioned off.[youtube id=”Z_bL6rq5UGA” align=”center” mode=”normal” autoplay=”no”]
