Filming is underway on “Fast X” (also known as Fast and Furious 10) with the Harley-Davidson Pan America Adventure-Tourer motorcycle (priced from RM99,900 in Malaysia) on screen. Directed by action star Jason Momoa, the tenth film in the “Fast and Furious” film franchise recently saw director Justin Lin leave the set, citing “creative differences” with Studio, Universal Pictures.
With the replacement of Lin by director Louis Letaria, filming has resumed in Rome, Italy, where Momoa is seen riding a Pan American in leather pants and a snake leather jacket, in keeping with the film’s villain role. Pan America itself is modeled for the film, with little resemblance to the real world.
Decorated in black, Pan America’s drainage piping is now a pair of straight pipes painted red-orange. The headlight cowl and headlights are gone, imitating the number plates used in flat track racers and replaced with flat black plates with vent holes.
The instrument panel is now a smartphone or some kind of small LCD display, while the seat unit varies according to the responsibility of filming. All that remains is the Revolution Max 1250 V-Twin with the Harley-Davidson “Bar and Shield” logo emblazoned on the fuel tank.
This time, Momoa played the villain, saying, “It’s funny, I can play the bad guy, which I haven’t been able to do for a while. Now, I can be a bad boy. A very cute bad boy. A little punch! ”
