Always great seeing this man around machines! He seems to have recently gotten rid of this Nissan GT-R though. The car has made its way to some place in the outskirts of Bangalore.
On a lighter note, he seems to have gone back to his Dhoom hair-do for his 'busa delivery

Love the bike and the dude is decent too, but that movie is single handedly responsible for all the flack Hayabusa got over the years in this country.
After watching the movie , juvenile fanboys who were squeezing the life out of scootys were suddenly riding a 1299 behemoth from the grey market. A sure shot recipe for disaster, they crashed it left, right and center because it was too much for their non existent skill set giving the bike a bad name.

Bad name to the Hayabusa? That is the first time I'm hearing anything like this. Nobody went from Scootys to Hayabusas for sure, even the grey market bikes weren't exactly 'cheap' as such
The first Hayabusa fall that I know of was at the 2004 Speedrun when a very skilled rider met with an unfortunate crash :(

If anything, I've only seen every other superbike being referred to as a Hayabusa by folks who aren't exactly familiar with Superbikes. Heck a week or two ago my Fireblade was referred to as a Hayabusa (for the nth time) by a passerby. Now that I think of it Hayabusa and Superbikes are synonyms in the Indian context. If anything I feel the movie introduced a whole country to Superbikes (myself included)

Something can be very popular yet have a bad reputation. They both are mutually exclusive. I personally know atleast 6 Hayabusa crashes from 2005 to 2010.
One of the most prominent superbike dealer in Delhi sold truck loads of grey market imports after the movie came out to kids who all wanted to be John Abraham cool. And most of these kids did not even know how to ride forget previously riding something small. And they crashed and crashed bad. In one particular case, a kid actually crashed the bike right through a Wagon R, literally splitting it. Nothing much remained of the bike.

This gave the bike a name for being dangerous and unmanageable. The bike is still the most popular superbike in the country.
I have actually had blokes come to me at petrol bunks and asked me if I have put a 'body' on a Karizma to make it look like a Hayabusa.

Re: Bollywood Stars and their Cars

King Khan took delivery of a brand new Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge earlier this week. The car was seen out last night, apparently being driven by the man himself. Not sure how to embed a reel video here but attaching the link below. Mods, pls do the needful.

Finally! A Rolls Royce was long overdue in his garage. An S580 Maybach in Nautic blue (with an unusual set of twin spoke wheels) was also added to his garage recently.
