Whew! It took me a week to find another interesting “black” stuff. Anyway, just check this black thingy that I will feature for today.

The upcoming Resident Evil: Extinction film that stars Milla Jojovich will feature a customized BMW K 1200 R bike. Right. This customized BMW bike will be used by Alice (Jojovich’s character in the film) while shooting some gruesome zombies.

The artist Georg Huber designed the bike to celebrate the participation of the BMW K 1200 R in the film. The bike was called as the “RE3” (short for Resident Evil 3) and features a black exterior with gold spinal bones airbrushed on the bike’s fuel tank. The RE3 also comes with RE3 letterings on some other parts. Check out the RE3 below along with the gorgeous Milla Jojovich.

Jojovich commented about the RE3: “I’m not the best judge but I’ve had a few guy friends freak out over it and say that the bones design are awesome. It looks great.”

About the upcoming Resident Evil: Extinction film, Jojovich also commented:
“It was a lot of fun making it – these films have been a great experience for me. I guess I feel like I can do a lot of different parts but action I really love. I love training and working with weapons; it’s a lot of fun but takes a lot of focus. I get to recreate this character and it’s been a great opportunity for me – not many actors can say they have a 3 DVD box-set.”

Anyway, Georg Huber only modified the external appearance of the BMW K 1200 R. The bike still features the high performance BMW parts. Want to check them out? Then here are the specs of the BMW K 1200 R.. or the RE3.
