Actor R. Madhavan, known for his roles in Bollywood and Tamil movies, is an avid biker. The actor has been spotted riding motorcycles several times. R. Madhavan and his son Vedaant, who is an athlete, are internet sensations. The family moved from India to Dubai so that his son could have access to larger swimming pools for training. It appears that the actor took all his bikes with him when the family shifted to Dubai. A video of R. Madhavan has now surfaced online, showing him riding some of his bikes in an underground parking lot.

The video was shared by Aravind Kamalanathan on his Instagram page. In this video, the actor is seen riding four of his motorcycles in an underground parking lot. Judging by the car parked behind in the video, it seems that the bikes are currently in Dubai. Madhavan must have taken these bikes with him to Dubai when he moved.
The first motorcycle shown in the video is a Yamaha V-MAX. The motorcycle has been officially discontinued from the market. The actor takes the bike for a short spin in his parking lot only. The Yamaha V-Max is powered by a 1,679 cc liquid-cooled V4 engine that generates 197 bhp and 166 Nm of peak torque. It was one of the most uniquely designed motorcycles in the market, offering the comfort of a cruiser and the power of a superbike. The last recorded price of this motorcycle was around Rs 27.35 lakh, ex-showroom. Bollywood actor John Abraham also owned one of these motorcycles, which he gifted to director Sanjay Gupta in 2013.
The actor bought this bike back in 2017. The motorcycle was purchased in India, and we can clearly see the old MH registration on the front bumper of this motorcycle. It looks like the registration of the motorcycle has been changed, as we see a Dubai registration at the rear. When Madhavan bought this bike, it cost around Rs 45.57 lakh in Mumbai. It is an extremely comfortable cruiser that uses a 1,811 cc V-twin four-stroke engine, generating 100 bhp and 150 Nm of peak torque. At 421 kilograms, this is a heavy cruiser motorcycle.
The third motorcycle on the list is a Honda Goldwing. This is one of the popular cruiser motorcycles, and the one that the actor owns appears to be from the current generation. The price for the current generation Honda Goldwing cruiser starts at Rs 39.16 lakh, ex-showroom. It is a feature-loaded cruiser motorcycle that comes with a DCT gearbox and even a reverse gear. The motorcycle is powered by a 1833 cc flat-six engine that generates 126 Ps and 170 Nm of peak torque.
Triumph Rocket 3 R
The last motorcycle in the video is a Triumph Rocket 3 R Chrome Edition, which costs around Rs 20.8 lakh, ex-showroom. This motorcycle uses a 2,500 cc three-cylinder engine, which is the largest in a production motorcycle. It generates 167 Ps and 221 Nm of peak torque. Besides these, Madhavan also owns bikes like the BMW K1200 GTL and Ducati Diavel. The actor clearly loves cruiser motorcycles, and that is evident in his collection too.
