Akshay Kumar is one of the popular actors from Bollywood. He is known as one of the daring actors in the industry, as he performs most of the stunts in his movies himself. Just like any other actor or actress from Bollywood, Akshay Kumar also has a decent collection of exotic and expensive cars in his garage. We have written about his collection in the past. He is associated with Honda Two Wheelers in India and is the brand ambassador as well. The actor was recently spotted riding a TVS Raider motorcycle during the shoot of one of his upcoming movies in Uttar Pradesh.

The video has been shared by ANI on their Twitter or ‘X’ profile. According to the video, Akshay Kumar had arrived in Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur for the shoot of his upcoming movie “Sky Force.” In the short video that is circulating online, we can see Akshay Kumar riding a brand new TVS Raider motorcycle in an open ground. Fencing surrounds the ground, and people have gathered to catch a glimpse of the action star. Akshay Kumar can be seen riding the bike without a helmet on the ground. It seems the actor simply took the bike to quickly move from one corner of the ground to the other.
There are many police officers deployed on the ground. Some of them are trying to manage the crowd, while others are attempting to seize an opportunity to take a picture. Akshay’s personal security guards are also visible in the video. They are managing the crowd, including the cops who were getting too close to the actor. The actor waves at the public standing on the other side of the fence. He rides the bike and shakes hands with some of the cops who were managing the crowd. Afterward, the actor rides the bike to the other side, parks the bike, and walks closer to the fence to engage in conversation and greet people and fans.
The TVS Raider is one of the most aggressive and sporty-looking motorcycles in the 125-cc segment. This stylish commuter segment bike comes with several features. The price for the TVS Raider starts at Rs 95,219 ex-showroom. The motorcycle is available in SX, SSE, split seat, and single-seat variants. The X-shaped front LED DRLs, along with the sleek-looking headlamps, give the motorcycle a sporty naked look. The motorcycle features a sculpted fuel tank, engine guard, 5-inch TFT display, 17-inch alloy wheels, and an all-LED tail lamp.
It is powered by a 124.8-cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine paired with a 5-speed gearbox. The motorcycle generates 11.22 Bhp at 7,500 rpm and 11.2 Nm of peak torque at 6000 rpm. The TVS Raider comes with disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear. Lower variants of the bike skip the disc brake option. The front features telescopic forks, while the rear has 5-step adjustable gas-charged monoshock absorbers. While Akshay Kumar is often seen riding bikes from Honda, this is likely the first time he is seen riding a non-Honda two-wheeler in a video.
