Looks like an 1125 or 1190 kickstand anyway.

Looks like VRSC front end parts, HD calipers, and its belt drive. And those are VRSC mirrors, just mounted horizontally.

And "Harley Davidson" on the airbox.

Interesting.

Looks better without the shield.

Trying to figure out if that puppy is gas powered or electric. Nice looking bike though. Concur - it looks better with out the shield.

No shifter, so I say electric. Also lack of a visible exhaust, and the belly pan looks like it would hold an electric motor. Why the would mount the motor with the shaft running front to back is beyond me though. It does make as much sense as HD making another bike that leans so much toward a sport category, even if it's only a one off Hollywood prop.

The suspension looks very nice compared to the usual weak HD fare - pity they could not think to put out something like that for the masses. So I suspect it is a tarted up Zero.

Interesting bike, but that ain't Scarlett Johansson.

I don't think it's a tarted up Zero. For starters, I don't see anything that looks like it came from a Zero. Would Zero let them take one of their bikes and slap HD on the tank? I would guess not. I'm sure HD is paying for the product placement, and if the product is other than HD, then I would expect all kinds of legal tangles. I just don't see it. There's also lots of stuff that is obviously straight from the HD parts bins, even if slightly modified. Also the single front disk for the brakes. I wonder if it's really all for a single movie, or if HD has plans to piss of their sales people again with a bike that they have no clue how to market.

I'm guessing more than prop. It's correct...even down to side reflectors. No prop house is going to go to the trouble of putting reflectors on a superhero bike that's only going to be onscreen....and then trashed.

I doubt it was built by a prop house. I would bet that HD built it for the movie. Reflectors are simple stick on items. Nothing difficult about that at all. When your group is used to sticking them on bikes they build, I'm sure it happens, just like any other details that must be done. Does HD want the audience to see an obvious one off (well they probably built 2 or three) bike that no one will ever think was a real bike, or do they want them to see a bike that could be a real bike, even if only in an alternate universe? No doubt HD will be paying attention to reaction to the bike. Will something similar ever get built? I have my doubts.
