Celebrities are often perceived as high-headed, limousine-riding, chauffeur-assisted individuals that rarely get their hands bothered with the steering wheel. While some of them just want to make the most out of what they pay their drivers, other celebrities just can’t or aren’t allowed to legally drive yet. Then, there’s also the more badass group of celebrities who fearlessly travel on their gas-powered bikes instead.
A lot of these biker celebs are those who are often portrayed as “cool” or “badass” because of the previous roles they’ve played. Big, manly guys like Arnold Schwarzenegger and John Travolta are great examples. But don’t be fooled! Aside from those two, there are tons of other celebs who may not look like it but are actually gearheads at heart. Here are some other celebrities that ride badass motorcycles.
10 Alanis Morisette – Ducati Monster
Alanis Morisette is a recognized songwriter, producer, and musician. She’s most popular for her emotive songs filled with heart-touching lyrics and arousing music videos to match it. But far from what most of her music videos portray, Alanis Morisette is more of a badass in real life.
Aside from her interest in tattoos, Alanis also has good taste in motorcycles. Paparazzi has spotted her multiple times in the streets while driving a Ducati Monster. Though some Monsters are surprisingly slow Ducatis, this one looks like Alanis really enjoys driving it.
9 Bear Grylls – Triumph Tiger 800 XC
If people think a celebrity’s life is crazy hectic enough, then it makes us wonder how someone like Bear Grylls manages his day. He’s not only a TV show host, but the guy also does a lot of traveling since he’s a real-life adventurer. It’s a good thing he chose a great bike like the trusty Triumph Tiger 800 XC to keep him company.
To further aid in his adventures, Edward had a tail pack attached to the rear of his bike. The Triumph Tiger 800 XC is a sports bike that’s actually a comfortable daily driver that can also be used on a little off-road.
8 Adam Levine – Harley Fat Boy FLSTF
Adam Levine gives off cool, manly, and just badass vibes whenever he sings on stage. But did you know he’s just as cool in real life too? Apparently, the Maroon 5 lead singer and songwriter also has a couple of motorcycles he isn’t afraid to take out on the road.
One of these is the most common Harley Davidson bike featured in movies, the Harley Fat Boy FLSTF. In an interview a few years ago, Adam said a bike would have been the last thing he’d buy if he were asked ten years prior. But after buying the Harley Fat Boy FLSTF, he said the sound was almost “meditative.”
7 Charlie Hunnam – Harley Dyna Super Glide
If you watch Sons of Anarchy, you may very well know Charlie Hunnam. This famous actor is also recognized for his roles in the 2017 film, Papillion and the 2013 movie, Pacific Rim. But here at Hotcars, we know and love Charlie Hunnam for his great taste in motorcycles.
A surprising fact about this Sons of Anarchy star is that he rides the same Harley Dyna Super Glide that he rides in the show. For fans, it’s best to stay away from the 2004 model as its one of the worst Harley bikes made.
6 David Beckham – Triumph Bonneville
Football may not be your cup of tea but if you’ve ever seen the movies King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and The Man from U.N.C.L.E, you may have already seen David Beckham. With his striking looks and towering height, it’s no surprise that this handsome dude is a badass biker in real life.
He also doesn’t ride just any ordinary bike. David rides a Triumph Bonneville that was customized by the popular California-based design and engineering company, British Customs. While the look of the bike had noticeable changes, it’s the rare aftermarket upgrades that made the biggest difference.
5 Norman Reedus – Triumph Tiger 800 XCA
If you don’t know Norman Reedus, you need to watch more TV because this Walking Dead lead star isn’t only focused on slaying zombies and surviving an apocalypse. He also has a four-season travel series called “Ride with Norman Reedus” which was first aired on June 12, 2016. This featured the gearhead side of Norman and his love for motorcycles.
The pure black Triumph Tiger 800 XCA is one of the coolest motorcycles ridden by celebrities. The one featured here is actually the same Tiger Norman used to ride in the show’s first season. He left 33,000 miles on the bike before moving on to the second season of the show.
4 Orlando Bloom – Custom BMW S 1000R
Orlando Bloom is a talented actor most famous for his roles in the record-breaking Pirates of the Caribbean and the Lord of the Rings franchise. His recent work revolves around a fantasy world and mythological creatures in the 2019 TV series, Carnival Row.
But aside from a great actor, this guy also has a good eye for great bikes. This is obvious once you get to see his custom BMW S 1000R called the 4CYL. This bike, however, doesn’t sleep in his garage alone because Orlando also owns a handsome 1964 BMW R60.
3 Priyanka Chopra – Harley-Davidson Superlow
With a $50 million net worth, it makes us wonder how one of the richest Indian actresses spends all her money. If you guessed makeup and designer bags, you guessed right, but she buys her own rides too. Pictured here is a young and single Priyanka Chopra enjoying the fruit of her labor in its prettiest color.
Her Harley Davidson Superlow is said to cost over $5,500 and was bought sometime in 2014 right after she bought a Rolls-Royce. Until now, there still hasn’t been any news that she put it up for sale so fans assume she still has it.
2 Ryan Reynolds – 1964 Triumph 650
Ryan Reynolds is popular for being a funny guy on screen and on social media. But for someone with such good humor, he sure is serious when it comes to his motorcycle collection. In fact, in an interview with Men’s Health, Ryan subtly hints at liking motorcycles more than cars simply because riding a motorcycle is way simpler than driving a four-wheeler.
In addition to his 1964 Triumph 650 crafted by bike customization company, The Factory Metal Works, Ryan Reynolds’ sick motorcycle collection also includes a Triumph Bonneville and a Triumph Thruxton.
1 Tom Cruise – Vyrus 987 C3 4V
When people think of the famous A-listers of Hollywood, one of the first faces that come to mind is Tom Cruise. With an early kick into the showbiz industry at 18 years old, Tom Cruise managed to grab some of the most iconic roles in the 1980s, raking him a net worth of about $570 million today.
From this, he pinched a small fraction amounting to $91,700 to buy one of the most powerful production bikes in the world – the Vyrus 987 C3 4V. Other bikes in his collection include the Kawasaki GPz900r, the Ducati 999R, and the BMW S1000 RR.
