Looking for the name of a violent (horror?) road movie with focus on motorbikes

I am not sure anymore if it was supernatural horror or just a bunch of violent human criminals that the hero was up against. The enemies were one or more gangs of motorbike riders.

There was a male protagonist at the center of the story, female co-lead and romantic interest that he meets, with less screen time than he had. It was his story overall. It could be that her character is killed in the end. She was attractive, long dark hair, could be Eastern European, but I might be totally wrong there. Could be that the actress was in a romantic relationship with a famous Hollywood actor. I thought of Jake Gyllenhaal, but did not find her name there in the list of his partners.

Anyway, as for the movie, the setting and atmosphere were a bit like poor man's Mad Max. I think the imdb rating was not too high, but also not super low, somewhere between 4 and 6 perhaps. Running time between 80 and 100 minutes, probably a big-screen release and not television, English language, maybe some inclusions of Spanish. The film should have been made between 2000 and 2015, more specific wild guess would be between 2003 and 2012. That is all I can think of right now. Maybe somebody has an idea?

thanks cinefyl, sadly it is not the one I am looking for, but with Carrey and Keanu I might put it on my watch list :D

the one I am looking for should also be a bit older than 2016

Let's go for another bump. I am not gonna give up haha I am sure one day we will get to the bottom of this. If I find the title myself, I will of course let people know here as well.

@Horst maybe we can take a different approach - do you recall the vibe of the film (e.g. was it realistic, campy, comedy, nerve wracking). What sort of special or practical effects might it have had? Any thoughts on the MPAA rating? Was the film stock 70's level bad, clear as crystal, was it shot at night, day, both. Interior or exterior sets? Any specific vehicles and do you recall any time specific references?

It was rather dark, although it may have had 2 or 3 campy moments from my recollection. Special effects not a lot, if anything it was about the makeup. It was set in America, a hostel may have been included, so there was a little bit of western route 66 vibe to it. With the rating I have no idea. Topless female nudity on at least one occasion and also some violence if if people weren't slaughtered on screen or anything. Both interior and exterior, and yeah the film was from the 2000s most likely, before 2010, but could very well be that it looked older and was set in the 1990s. As for vehicles, I only remember motorbikes. I went through this list https://www.imdb.com/list/ls000023634/ already, but don't think the film I am looking for is on it.
