Since Batman now drives alone in his one-man Batmobile, an appropriate vehicle had to be developed for Robin. And since the young hero's skill with motorcycles had already been established in Batman Forever, it made perfect sense to equip Robin with the world's hottest, coolest bike...the Redbird.
"The Redbird went through a dozen different designs," admits Ling. "Like the Batmobile, I wanted the Redbird to be very, very long. We placed interactive LEDs in the engine compartments, and there's an illuminated Robin emblem in front of the driver's seat."
As with the Batmobile, the Redbird was a ground-up build, utilizing fiberglass and carbon fiber (the same materials that airplanes are made of), because according to Allen Pike, "there was no existing motorcycle that we could base the Redbird on."
