What do George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, and Ewan McGregor, to name a few, have in common? They are all great lovers of big bikes.
Just because they are earning millions of dollars for every movie they make doesn’t really mean that they are already “limousine people”. Though they don’t want to thrust themselves into the limelight all the time, they still want to get some thrill and a breath of fresh air by riding their very much loved superbikes.
Moreover, since you would definitely be so interested what they’re driving on, take a look at the list of celebrities and their bikes:
The Top Gun and Risky Business star was one of the first people in the world to receive Desmosedici RR, one of the newest models from Ducati. It is sold at more than $72,000 and is composed of different materials, such as magnesium and titanium. With its carbon fiber system, it can literally travel at most 200 miles per hour.
Who would have thought that the Grand Dame Elizabeth Taylor loves big bikes? Unknown to many, she actually owns Purple Passion, a Harley-Davidson bike. It’s not as massive as other models of the famous brand. However, for someone as delicate as she, she deserves something sexier or sultry to look at. Of course, it pays that she didn’t buy it herself. It was given by Malcolm Forbes, one of the wealthiest men in the world and where Forbes Magazine got its name from. Forbes himself owns more than 50 Harley-Davidsons.
The all-time hunky George Clooney reportedly spent more than $30,000 for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. In fact, you would hardly see him getting outside the car as he prefers to ride himself—and his girls—in his bikes.
Ryan Reynolds is set to play Green Lantern, but before that, the handsome husband of Scarlet Johansson is often seen riding a replica of Ducati Paul Smart 1000. The big bike was named after the legendary Paul Smart who rode it during the 1972 Imola race. It follows a retro look, with a tail section called café racer. There are also outboard dampers, while the tires are Pirelli Phantom. It runs with a L-twin cylinder, air-cooled powerful engine.
It’s not only women that Brad Pitt can get. He can also basically buy any type of superbike he likes. Besides his Triumph and Harley-Davidson, he also owns a Ducati 1100S, one of the monsters of the Italian brand. It is known not only for its elegant design but also for its power, flexibility, and lightness. It has a 1100cc engine and an acceleration that can take you to full speed whenever you need one.
Known as the man who liplocked Halle Berry during the 75th Academy Awards where he won Best Actor for The Pianist, Adrien is a proud owner of Yamaha YFZ-R1, one of the newest models equipped with 998 cc four-cylinder powerful engine. It can also offer more control to the rider through its Deltabox chassis that gives Adrien excellent balance.
