Celebrities and their motorcycles
Celebrities tend to shy away from the public eye as they're whisked away to the privacy of their cars before taking off. One thing's for sure, life as a celebrity cannot be easy. However, there are others who like to let loose without caring much about the media or paparazzi. How, you ask? The answer's on two wheels. Here's looking at six celebrities and their motorcycles.
1. Tom Cruise – Vyrus 987 C3 4V
The name itself suggests that this is no ordinary machine. Actor Tom Cruise has owned several motorcycles but none compare to the Vyrus 987. It looks like Cruise was immediately infected with the 'Vyrus' the moment he laid eyes on it.
2. Brad Pitt – Ecosse Titanium
Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt is another one of those stars who loves his motorbikes. Pitt owns a number of them including the supercharged Ecosse Titanium which in simple words, looks super mean!
3. Mahendra Singh Dhoni – Confederate Hellcat X132
Most of you must already know about Dhoni's love for bikes and the huge collection he possesses. But everything else around the cricketer greys out once he's on his handbuilt Confederate Hellcat X132. For those who don't already know, the Confederate Hellcat X132 was named after the dreaded F6F Hellcat fighter plane of WWII.
4. Keanu Reeves – 1973 Norton 850 Commando
Keanu Reeves may be one those low profile actors you don't usually hear about in celebrity gossip columns, but his collection of motorcycles is something that tends to find its way in the news. The Matrix actor is the proud owner of a rare 1973 Norton 850 Commando.
5. Shikhar Dhawan – Suzuki GSX 1300R Hayabusa
Another cricketer in the list is Shikhar Dhawan. According to reports, his father stated that Dhawan is not much of a motorcycle enthusiast anymore but a Suzuki GSX 1300R Hayabusa made its way into his garage some time ago.
6. Orlando Bloom – Deus customised BMW S1000R
On screen, the Lord of the Rings and Troy actor's been playing the role of ancient characters but in the real world, he's much more than that. Bloom has been spotted around riding several motorcycles and even owns a BMW S1000R customised by Deus Customs.
