5 female stars who are secretly biker babes


5 female stars who are secretly biker babes

And the sexy superbikes they own

By Shweta Gandhi  January 10th, 2018

It’s 2018 and thankfully, we don’t have to point out that riding a motorcycle isn’t strictly restricted to men. Bollywood and Hollywood’s leading ladies are overthrowing every single gender stereotype attached to motorcycles, proving that the term ‘biker babes’ does not connote to ‘scantily-clad women posing with superbikes’. These women are serious about their passion for riding, and own powerful superbikes that generate enough horsepower to blast away all doubt and criticism thrown their way.

Actors like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma and Shraddha Kapoor have already shown off their bike-riding skills on screen — skills they happily imbibed only because their role demanded it — but these 5 ladies have taken their love for riding from reel to real life. 

From Priyanka Chopra to Angelina Jolie, explore our list of powerful female celebrities who are big-time motorcycle enthusiasts.

5 biker babes and their luxury wheels:

Angelina Jolie

Angelina rode the Triumph Street Triple R for her movie Salt and the Yamaha TRX 850 in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and on her 35th birthday, ex-husband Brad pitt gifted her a motorcycle — a red MV Augusta — that he even helped her learn how to ride. "It's a proper bike and it's powerful. I used to have a bike years ago, but I hadn't owned one for a long time. Sometimes we'll (Brad and I) go on the track together and there you can go really fast and let your hair down," the actor said in an interview.

Pink

Pink's love for motorcycles is evident in her music videos, where she is often riding one. She is the proud owner of a Triumph Bonneville T100 and a Harley-Davidson Sportster XL Iron 883N. Here, she's seen sitting on an Indian motorcycle.

Pink's husband, Carey Hart, is a motocross superstar who built her a custom ride as a gift after she gave birth to their son, Jameson.

Gul Panag

Gul is a self-professed biker, and has been riding since she was 17 years old. In fact, the first bike she ever rode was an Enfield 500. "I enjoy riding bikes, it gives me a sense of freedom and a sense of liberation. One of the bikes that I ride is an Enfield, it’s considered to be a very ‘man’ territory and so is the S650 BMW that we ride, but somehow, when people hear about the Enfield, there’s more of a reaction; not many people know what an S650 looks like," Gul was quoted as saying in an interview

Kalki Koechlin

Kalki gets her passion for bikes from her father, Joel Koechlin, who is an avid biker and photographer. The actor has been riding pillion on her father's bike since she was a little girl, and as she grew up, would occasionally take rides on her own bike. The duo recently undertook a 4,000km biking trip to the Northeast for a travel show on their Royal Enfield Himalayan bikes (the same one she is seen on here). "Really couldn't have asked for a cooler new year/ birthday present. Can't wait to take this baby out and feel the wind in my hair," she said in her Instagram caption

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka first rode a bike in Don, and she enjoyed the experience so much that she bought herself a Harley Davidson Superlow, customised in a hot pink colour. Here, the star rode a Ducati motor bike for her role as Alex Parrish in Quantico's season 3.
