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. Related: John gifts Sanjay Gupta a Yamaha VMax

Commenting on the occasion, John Abraham said, “This is one of my best moments ever.  Aprilia RSV4 is a dream bike and I wanted to own one for quite some time. I thank Piaggio for handing me the phenomenal Aprilia RSV4, much sought after by several in the biking circuit!”

 

Ravi Chopra – Chairman and Managing Director, Piaggio Vehicles, said, “We, at Piaggio are glad to offer avid biker John Abraham this experience, which a true biker understands. Aprilia RSV4 has been a revolution on the global motor racing scene, and consistently takes the thrill of riding a notch higher. John Abraham being a bike aficionado himself is our personal favourite and we are happy that he becomes a proud owner of the Aprilia RSV4.”
