Most may have assumed the larger-than-life motorcycle that Prince rode from his famous movie debut in Purple Rain was a big Harley-Davidson or something along those lines. But you’d be surprised to know it was actually a custom 1981 Honda CB400A, a economical mid-sized bike that was only 400cc and an automatic (in a sense). Also known as the Hawk Hondamatic, the motorcycle lacked a clutch and only needed a shifter from from neutral to first and second to get around.
You certainly meet the nicest people on a Honda!
Justin Bieber was seen riding around LA on his black Ducati with red trim. With a varsity jacket and flashy red Adidas, the squid comparisons are inevitable!
Captain Kirk actor, Chris Pine, from the recent Star Trek movies is caught riding around on his Ducati Diavel on the streets of New York City. I guess that’s about as close to warp speed as you’ll get on the FDR expressway!
Actor Christian Bale of the Batman trilogy was recently seen riding a bright red Ducati during a recent track day. Not exactly the black and stealthy ride you’d expect from his Dark Knight alter ego, but you certainly can’t go wrong with a Ducati!
David Beckham is no stranger to motorcycles, and this is a shot of him looking uber cool on his new Triumph 1100cc Bonneville.
Singer songwriter Usher has been seen getting around both NYC and LA with one of his many motorcycles, which usually sport the Ducati name. Here he’s riding around Manhattan in his olive green Ducati Monster.
Careful on those sidewalks, young man!
Ever wonder what Deadpool actor, Ryan Reynolds, likes to ride in his free time? Well here is a link to a short video of Ryan Reynolds speaking about his love for motorcycles and a Triump Thruxton custom job he commissioned by Kott Motorcycles.
It’s great to see Queen Latifah (actress, singer, songwriter and TV personality) getting out to ride. And instead of a sporting a posh new Ducati or Triumph, which are the Hollywood go-to rides, Queen Latifah is seen riding on an impressive BMW R1200GS Adveture bike! I guess she can join Ewan McGregor and company as they travel around the world for any future riding adventures.
Looks like Alanis prefers the famous Italian maker as she fears up to ride out on her Ducati S4RS. Her firmer beau, Ryan Reynolds is also an avid rider, and has also been seen on his share of Ducati bikes.
