Chapman KTM Tracking Bike


The KTM Tracking Bike is supplied as a 'ready to rig' hard mount or with a Vibration Isolator, for front & rear stabilised camera positions. The custom designed aluminium space frame allows mounting of the Chapman Gyro Remote Head, giving you a camera position ranging from 8 inches, up to a height of 8 feet. The special seated configuration also accommodates a Steadicam operator (see photo).




To create the most exciting tracking shots, you need equipment & skilled personnel that can deliver just that. Chapman UK's customised KTM Tracking Bike has ensured filmmakers continue to create unforgettable moments for such recent films as: SkyFall, Fast & Furious 6, World War Z & Worlds End, to name but a few. The Chapman KTM Tracking Bike is the only tracking vehicle of it's kind, designed to carry a seated camera operator, safely and securely on the front or on the back. Its size and maneuverability open up a world of possibilities for tracking shots in confined spaces and hard to reach locations.

Chapman UK chose the KTM for its on and off road versatility. A 530cc engine developing 45bhp feeds a 5 speed, wide ratio gear box, providing the KTM with higher torque than rival bikes (essential for smooth operation with additional weight). The KTM's rider is 11x British Motocross Champion & MXDN World Champion, Rob Herring.

When you combine state of the art engineering and world class motorcycling talent, you get the know-how to achieve your shot safely, reliability and on time. At Chapman UK we're proud of our safety record and attention to detail. The KTM is a tried and tested camera platform for the most demanding tracking shots, check-out the video to see a demonstration.
