Girl with the Dragon Tattoo motorcycle

For the upcoming US release of David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, actress Rooney Mara has done away with the MX style motorcycle ridden by her character in the original 2009 release of the film. Instead her character Lisbeth Sanders the "goth detective" will be seen riding an all black, Cafe Racer styled, Honda CL350.

This great looking bike, custom built for the movie is yet another Cafe Racer styled motorcycle to appear in pop culture (check out the Tron Legacy Ducati Sport Classic) showing just how popular the style has thing you know we will be seeing them in perfume ads...oh wait, that's already happened!

The footage above was shot by a Swedish film crew showing Rooney during motorcycle training riding the Honda CL350 Cafe Racer. Check out the trailer below for some quick shots of the bike in the final production.

The original version of the film was gritty, confronting and in some scenes quite disturbing and Fincher's remake promises to be just as intense. If you're a fan of a good suspense movie be sure to head to the cinema when The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo screens in December.

Update: Check out more photos of the Honda CL350 from the film here.
