Jurassic World Triumph Scrambler on eBay for charity
The bike ridden by Hollywood actor Chris Pratt in the global summer blockbuster Jurassic World will be auctioned on eBay this week. All proceeds will go to The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, Triumph’s nominated fundraising partner.
The online auction for the Triumph Scrambler begins at 7pm on Thursday 23rd July and lasts for 10 days.
Three bespoke bikes were built for the film, seen racing alongside Raptors. After filming one was presented to Chris Pratt as a gift while a second is displayed at Triumph’s headquarters in the UK and it’s the third bike which is set to do the fundraising.
Here’s a video of Chris Pratt in action on the Triumph on the set of Jurassic World:
The Scrambler is based on the brand’s iconic Bonneville model, combining classic off-road influences with the Hinckley firm’s signature twin cylinder, 865cc engine. Triumph has been a long-standing favourite of Hollywood superstars past and present including; Steve McQueen, Marlon Brando and more recently Bradley Cooper, George Clooney and Ryan Reynolds.
Other Famous Triumph Riders
Money raised by the auction will go to The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, an annual motorcycle event that takes place in cities around the world on the last Sunday in September. Celebrating dapper style, classic motorcycles and the fun of riding with friends, the event is held to raise funds to help research into beating prostate cancer. Now in its fourth year, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has raised £1.28million for global medical research and this year hopes to raise over £1.93million through events in over 80 countries around the world.
