The motorcycle in cinema-Cool as Ice.

Cool as Ice. "universally panned by critics"
"Cool as Ice is a 1991 film loosely based on Rebel Without a Cause, and often referred to as the Vanilla Ice Movie. When first released, Cool as Ice was universally panned by critics. However, over time it has become something of a cult classic. Cinematography by Janusz Kaminski, who later became the much-lauded regular cinematographer on Steven Spielberg's movies from Schindler's List onwards.

Johnny, a freewheeling, motorcycle-riding musician, rolls into a small town with his band, and meets Kathy, an honor student who catches his eye. Meanwhile, Kathy's father, after being in the Witness Protection Program, is finally found by the two corrupt cops he escaped from years ago, who claim he owes them a lot of money.

Vanilla Ice's motorcycle was a 1991 Suzuki GSX-R750M. His friends rode a pair of 1987-1990 Kawasaki ZX-750R bikes."

Best not to watch: its that bad. (link)

This information is incorrect. The bike used is a GSXR 1100 L or M as it had 2 exhausts

This Bike in this movie is what made me want a motorcycle. I was 12 when it came out,I believe in 91. In 1999 I finally found one I could afford, A 1996.Bought it had frame,wheels,swingarm polished, bought new skin and painted it vivid canary yellow, left off the other colors to be a little different. Besides a few minor upgrades and chrome D&D pipes (yes its loud in color and sound)LOL and I kept it duels unlike most people. Own it to this day, wont sell it for any price! Its feed several busa, and zx-14, owners some humble pie. Any fellow owners or (pie eaters) will no what im talking about! Most cant get around the fact a dam near 20year old bike with carbs can run with the big dogs, usually in front of the pack. O yeah it is a 1100 not a 750 as some think, the duels are a dead give away!
