What’s John Abraham doing on a Ducati Panigale superbike at a race track? We explain!

Bollywood heartthrob John Abraham is a known bike nut and owns an envious collection of motorcycles. He has been associated with brands like Yamaha and Suzuki for long and starred in movies like Dhoom which helped popularise biking in India. In a recent tweet, the actor and producer announced that he has joined hands with Ajay Kapoor of Kyta Productions to co-produce a biker movie. This movie will be directed by Rensil D’Silva and shooting for the movie will start from July 2019

Commenting on the movie, John Abraham said,

A story around motorcycles is very close to my heart. This is a story about human relationships. I decided to develop a film on riders and their love for motorcycles in-house two years ago. A lot of research and time has been spent on the subject since then. I am happy to have Ajay Kapoor and Rensil on board for this project. I am especially excited that we will film the action sequences in the Isle of Man, the home of racing on real roads!

This will mark John return to the silver screen in a biker theme movie after almost a decade and a half. He was recently clicked undergoing intense training for his upcoming movie. The actor has been practising for the film in Bennetts Trackday Brands Hatch in The Isle of Man, UK and the pictures you see here are taken from his practice sessions.

In the pictures here, John is seen riding a Ducati Panigale V4 around the track. However, it seems like a track prepped bike and not a stock one. In stock condition too, the Ducati Panigale V4 is one of the best sports bike money can buy right now. Apart from its huge power and lightweight, it gets a unique frame which has been used for the first time on a Ducati bike. The bike gets powered by 1,103 V4 engine that churns out 214 Hp at 13,000rpm and 124Nm of torque at 10,000rpm. The bike gets a host of technological and mechanical innovations, all in a package that weighs under 200 Kg. However, as mentioned above, the bike featured here seems to be a track spec bike and hence could have slightly altered specifications.

Talking about John’s bike collection, the actor owns a range of bikes starting from the legendary Yamaha RD350 and Suzuki Hayabusa to Yamaha V-Max, Aprilia RSV4 and a Yamaha R1 among others. He even owns a custom made Royal Enfield bike, built by the famous Rajputana Customs for him. Apart from bikes, his car collection includes a Lamborghini Gallardo, Audi Q3 and a Maruti Suzuki Gypsy among others. All this makes him a true petrolhead and we look forward to his upcoming biker movie.
