Name an actor with a profound passion for motorcycles and extensive knowledge of the subject, and John Abraham immediately comes to mind. The Bollywood actor, catapulted to fame by his role as a motorcycle thief in the Bollywood movie “Dhoom,” has a genuine love for motorcycling. In contrast to other Bollywood celebrities who add luxury cars and SUVs to their collections, John Abraham boasts a diverse array of high-end superbikes, one of which is a striking red Ducati Panigale V4.
Recently, a video surfaced on Instagram, shared by “superbikesindia,” featuring John Abraham leisurely cruising the streets of Mumbai on his Ducati Panigale V4. In the video, John is seen calmly riding his Ducati Panigale V4, fully equipped with a full-sized helmet and riding boots. The video concludes with John effortlessly riding the motorcycle into his building.
The first glimpse of John Abraham’s Ducati Panigale V4 was featured in a YouTube video by “Flying Beast,” in which the actor showcased his current motorcycle collection. In addition to the Ducati Panigale V4, John also possesses a Yamaha V-Max 60th Anniversary Edition, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R, BMW S1000RR, Aprilia RSV4 RF, Yamaha YZF-R1, Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade, and MV Agusta F4. His collection also includes some relatively ‘humble’ motorcycles, such as a Kawasaki ER-6n and a KTM Duke 390. John has previously served as a brand ambassador for Yamaha and was recently spotted taking a lap run during the Indian GP on the BMW M1000RR safety bike.
John Abraham’s Ducati Panigale V4 is the base-spec variant of the Panigale V4 lineup, which includes more expensive and powerful iterations such as the V4 S and V4 R. Among these, the Panigale V4 R is a track-only version of the superbike and, priced at Rs 69.99 lakh, currently stands as Ducati’s flagship and most expensive motorcycle in India.
Additionally, John Abraham recently acquired the new third-generation Suzuki Hayabusa. In the immensely popular film “Dhoom,” John Abraham portrayed the role of a motorcycle thief who rode a first-generation Suzuki Hayabusa. After the movie’s success, the Suzuki Hayabusa became an iconic name in the country. Although Suzuki never officially introduced the Hayabusa into the Indian market, the second and third-generation models were sold through official channels. The second-generation Hayabusa was also locally assembled in India. Alongside these superbikes, John Abraham also counts a Nissan GT-R and Isuzu V-Cross among the treasures in his garage.
