1. Why is this shark laughing?

    In a somewhat unexpected development reports of James Bond’s unusual shoestring budget have gained new momentum by yesterday’s unveiling of two Honda CRF 250R motorbikes, which saw extended use during the pre-titles-sequence of this year’s upcoming James Bond film ‘Skyfall’. However, sources close to the production insist the two machines are not meant to replace James Bond’s Aston Martin, neither in ‘Skyfall’ nor in the future.

    The two motorbikes in question were unveiled yesterday at the ‘Bond In Motion‘ exhibition currently hosted at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu. Representatives of Honda (UK) said they were delighted to see their products chosen by the Bond production and announced a range of further promotional events to celebrate the occasion (further information on upcoming activities:, Facebook/HondaCarsUK and Twitter @Honda_UK). First among these is the offer of twenty pairs of tickets for the ‘Bond In Motion’ exhibition in a competition.  To win you have to tweet the answer to this question:


    The Honda CRF250R features in the upcoming Bond film Skyfall, but which Honda model featured in the 1971 film Diamonds are Forever?

    And we guess this may be the reason for this shark’s laughter.
