The bike doesn't look to be very similar to the German cycle. I noticed a certain genericness to it that I figured would be for re-use as other bikes, but either this one's got a lot of extra stuff to fancy it up, or it's a new bike.
It shouldn't be too similar to the German cycle given Mutt was riding a Harley in the movie. I doubt that Hasbro went to the trouble of getting the license to put Harley Davidson on the bike, but one can hope. Looks to be a V-Twin but I don't remember Mutt's bike having foot pads like that. Nit-picky, yes, but I do like the bike overall.
I'm guessing the sunglasses don't come off (don't remember him wearing them in the movie) but that certainly resolves the issue about googly eyes (yeah, I'm obsessed). I'll probably buy this one, as much for the bike as anything.
Also disappointed in not more deluxe variety. Maybe they're being sensible and seeing how these sell first. I know they've got some response from pre-orders by major retailers, but I'm not seeing monster movie displays like with previous movie (Hulk, FF) releases, so the stores are being cautious and Hasbro is too I guess. I'm kind of wondering if they might not release the sidecar separately with another German soldier in the basic line? A bit of a stretch in some respects given they could almost sell it as a deluxe, but they've done large accessories in the past in the basic line as we all know. That could help explain the holes in the side of the current bike. Then you have the option of having the sidecar or not having the sidecar. Meaning you need at least three of the German soldier with motorcycle:
1. German with motorcycle, no sidecar
2. German with motorcycle to pair with the single release German in sidecar
3. German with motorcycle, single release sidecar, Indiana Jones to ride bike, Henry Jones Sr. to sit in sidecar.
Best to hop to it and buy up some more German's with motorcycle.
