John Abraham owns an Aprilia RSV4, cool. No helmet, uncool

John Abraham is popular for his love of bikes, and at an event in Mumbai tomorrow will share his experience as a proud owner the Aprilia RSV4 superbike. Here’s a glimpse of John Abraham test riding the Aprilia RSV4. Considering this is not a film shoot, it is worth asking, why he’s riding without helmet. Safety is always a concern, and we don’t expect to see anyone on a superbike without protective gear.


The 999.6cc V-4 Cylinder, 6 speed gearbox, 4-stroke liquid cooled DOHC engine pegs 180 BHP of power @ 12500rpm, and 115 Nm of torque @ 10000rpm. Certainly this is not a bike that’s for a novice, and given his experince in riding, a helmet bodes well. Gear too.
