The video shared on Instagram shows Shahrukh Khan and Kartik Aryan talking to each other while SRK divided his attention and gave some of it to the Honda CB500X parked right there.

We are not sure why the CB500X was parked there or if any one of them was planning to ride it. However, SRK seemed pretty interested in the new CB500X.

While both Shahrukh Khan and Kartik Aryan are known for their expansive garages full of luxury cars, none of them is well-known for being motorcycle enthusiasts. Kartik Aryan does own a Royal Enfield and has been spotted quite a few times riding the motorcycle on the roads. But Shahrukh Khan has always been around motorcycles at events.

When it comes to cars, both the actors own some of the most exotic models. While Kartik owns and regularly uses a Lamborghini Urus. He recently received a McLaren GT as a gift from movie producer Bhushan Kumar for his performance in a movie.

While Shah Rukh Khan recently bought the new S-Class. Shahrukh also owns a BMW 7-Series and a few other high-end luxury cars and SUVs.
