You may be right. But then they risk the Midgar escape feeling like more of the same, but then I guess the bodyguarding Cloud does for the truck would make that scene different enough.
Maybe Midgar will be so opened that you need the bike to move around and random soldiers tend to ambush you while you are driving around getting from point A to point B? Interesting thought.
I am also thinking that the bike may be used as a form of transportation.
And upon closer inspection, it appears to be a different bike than the Shinra bike.
So that second bike may have different features that'll make the chase scene more exciting than just riding on your usual one.
Damn that is some serious attention you are paying there to make such a nice catch.
Meanwhile I have been busy turning the picture of Tifa you posted into a proper wallpaper lol
