John Abraham receives Aprilia RSV4 from Piaggio
Bollywood macho man John Abraham, who is an avid motorcycle enthusiast, was presented a matte black Aprilia RSV4 superbike by parent company Piaggio at a gleaming ceremony in Mumbai last week. The RSV4 is one of the most renowned superbikes on sale globally and is powered by a 999.4cc, V-4 mill pumping out 186.6PS of power and 117Nm of torque while just weighing 181kg endowing it with a power-to-weight ratio of more than 1:1!
John isn’t a novice when it comes to superbikes as he has an envious personal collection of motorcycles and has owned a range of bikes starting from Yamaha RD-350, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R,Suzuki Hayabusa, Yamaha R1, FZ1000 and VMax. The Aprilia wouldn’t be the only Italian exotic in his garage as he had recently acquired an all black Lamborghini Gallardo LP-550-2, which is revered as one of the most beautiful supercars of all time and he is the only Bollywood star to own a Lamborghini currently.
