Apart from the obvious talent of acting, Bollywood celebrities are also known for their flamboyant lifestyle. Expensive cars and motorcycles are an inevitable part of their mega life while there are some tasteful petrolheads in the B town as well.
Among those rare Bollywood celebrities who have a huge passion for cars and bikes, John Abraham should be the leader. The 46-year-old actor who last featured in the movie Satyameva Jayate owns a good mix of unusual cars and motorcycles.
John Abraham celebrates his birthday on 17 December, we wish him a happy and memorable day. Also, let's take a closer look at the car and bike collection of Bollywood's biggest petrolhead.
John Abraham is a biker than a car person and the one bike that perfectly associates his bike image should be Suzuki Hayabusa, thanks to the Dhoom movie series. However, John Abraham later turned brand ambassador of Yamaha and the actor replaced the Hayabusa with the swanky VMax.
Yamaha VMax is regarded as the big daddy of muscle bikes while it is out of sale in India now. Powered by a 1700cc V4 petrol motor with 174bhp and 153 Nm, the VMax was the most expensive Yamaha bike in India when it was on sale.
John Abraham and his Yamaha love is not stopping with just a model. He also owns the ultimate superbike of the brand, the YZF-R1 as well. Priced at Rs 20.73 lakh, the YZF-R1 is powered by a 998cc liquid-cooled four-cylinder engine that can pump out 197bhp at 13,500rpm and a peak torque of 112Nm at 11,500rpm mated to a six-speed gearbox.
