        Keanu Reeves’s involvement in Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t limited to being the starring NPC, with the Hollywood actor also having a hand in rendering some of the futuristic in-game vehicles for the upcoming action role-playing video game.

        Arch Motorcycle, a custom production motorcycle company that Reeves co-founded with lifelong motorcyclist Gard Hollinger, loaned one of its limited-edition motorcycles to record sounds for Cyberpunk 2077. The John Wick star talked about how the collaboration came about in a recent behind-the-scenes video.

And I thought that was a very fine idea.”

        According to Hollinger, a motorcycle that they’ve designed and been developing called the Method 143 served as creative inspiration for designers: “It has a sort of a racing engine and compared to a production motorcycle, it has a dual exhaust system and it sounds pretty (vroom).”

        On the nature of the role-playing aspect of the game, Reeves said, “I think it would be cool to be on a bike, hearing that going through the city streets, and get into the madness of mayhem.”
