Some people have a passion for collecting motorcycles. Well, here is a man who has taken it to another level. Mr. Patel from Ahemdabad owns more than 20 motorcycles which all are cruisers. He says that he is very fond of motorcycles that is why he has this collection.
The collection started in 2002 by Mr. Patel’s father when he imported a Honda Blackbird and since then the collection is increasing. The video is uploaded by MotoGrapher in which Mr. Patel gives us a tour of his motorcycle.
The Blackbird was imported by Mr. Patel’s father and it is finished in black colour. The Blackbird was one of the fastest motorcycles when it was first introduced by Honda. The official name of the motorcycle was CBR1100XX but it was popularly known as the Super Blackbird.
The Hayabusa needs no introduction. It is the most iconic motorcycle in our country. According to the legends, it was named Hayabusa because ‘busa’ means falcon which is a predator to the blackbird. At that time, the Hayabusa was specifically made to compete against the Honda Blackbird.
The Indian Roadmaster is one of the most comfortable motorcycles that you can buy in the country. Mr. Patel says that he thinks that the Roadmaster is the Rolls Royce of motorcycles. He uses the Roadmaster whenever he goes on rides on the national highways. He owns two generations of the Roadmaster. The second one is finished in red.
The Avenger was bought and restored by Mr. Patel. He also painted it in a unique Yellow paint because he likes the colour. The Avenger was one of the first cruisers that was launched in India.

Not many people have heard about the Breakout because it did not sell well because of the Indian road conditions. The Breakout is a chopper-style motorcycle that was introduced in 2017 and was discontinued in just 1.5 years because of poor sales.
