We all have our favourite Hollywood A-Listers, men and women who have it all; looks, money and fame and, as you would expect, some love the thrill and speed of powerful superbikes. With so much money, it is no surprise that the big movie stars acquire their dream machines, with some even having an underground garage full of superbikes.
Here are a few celebrities who are addicted to fast motorcycles.
1. Tom Cruise
His love of fast motorcycles probably originated from filming Top Gun, in which he sat astride a superbike wearing his Aviators. Not sure how many bikes he has, but rumour has it he’s got quite a collection. Check out the motorbike clothing shops for the latest leathers if you wish to emulate Mr Cruise and make sure you have a valid licence to ride a superbike. They say his collection of bikes and cars are amazing, which are stored underground at his Californian mansion.
2. Justin Timberlake
This heart-throb has always loved big touring bikes and currently owns a customised Harley Davidson, which he rides around London when he’s not filming or recording a song. This chic looking guy has it all and he likes the rugged, laid back style of the big touring machines, which does wonders for his rugged sex appeal.
3. Saul Canelo Alvarez
The superstar who has cleaned up the super-middleweight division has a huge collection of sports cars, superbikes and dune buggies. Canelo has spoken of his love of speed when interviewed at his palatial mansion and he showed off his amazing bike collection; the Mexican pound for pound king of the ring makes millions of dollars each time he steps into the ring and when he’s relaxing, he’s never far away from his bike collection.
4. David Beckham
The ex-Manchester United soccer star and England captain has long been a fan of fast bikes, cruisers. We aren’t exactly sure how many homes he shares with his wife, the former Spice Girls singer. But they do own a huge house in London with 5 sub-basement levels, where it is rumoured, he keeps his growing motor collection.

5. Bradley Cooper
Known to have a soft spot for off-road bikes, this handsome hulk is said to rent at least one bike when he is on location. He has had an up and down career and says that he likes to ride off into the wilderness when things get too much. He has been known to remark that he likes the anonymity that comes with wearing a full-face helmet, which is a small price to pay for super-stardom.
6. Keanu Reeves
This guy is a great role model and he is followed on social media by literally millions of fans. His love of bikes goes way back to his school days and with the huge pay checks he receives, Keanu has developed his very own customised bike shop. If you but a stock production bike, you can have it customised by his shop to your exact specifications.
7. Brad Pitt
Of course, you would expect Brad to be a big bike lover, which goes hand in hand with his rugged image; he’s another cool dude that likes his privacy, so we’re kind of guessing as to what bikes he actually owns. We do know he has teamed up with Keanu Reeves for a few riding adventures in the Mojave Desert in sunny California and he probably has a few movie star friends to join him.
