The film Morgan: a suitable case for treatment (US title: Morgan!) was made by Quintra-Lion and went on general release in the UK on May 16, 1966.  Filming would, of course, taken place quite a while before that.  The Raleigh Wisp was first produced in April 1967 - a year or more too late to be in the film.  There is a motor cycle in the film.  It's not easy to identify it from the still below ... but it's nothing like a Wisp.
Still from Morgan: a suitable case for treatment
However, there's still the mystery of how the story became attached to this Wisp.  Maybe it was used in a stage production?  A Raleigh Wisp with a chopper seat would be most suitable for this considering the rider would be wearing a Gorilla suit.
