Amir Khan rides naked sports bike BMW K 1200 R for Dhoom 3 (Photos)


Amir Khan is currently in Chicago, shooting for third edition of Dhoom, a Bollywood movie series which revolves around fast bikes. Amir was snapped by his fans while shooting astride a black BMW sportsbike. Amir, also dressed in black, is all set to capture audience with the latest version of Dhoom. Amir Khan plays the role of a thief on fast motorcycle in the movie Dhoom 3. Similar roles were played by John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan in Dhoom and Dhoom 2.

The villain Khan will be seen riding on the black BMW K1200R in the movie and it may be noted here that the makers have offered a slightly shorter machine for Amir Khan as compared to the two earlier models. Khan plays the baddie in the movie and he will be joined by Abhishekh Bachchan and Uday Chopra who will play the cops.

BMW K1200R is a Supersport bike which was launched by BMW Motorrad in 2005. It possesses 163 hp at 10250 rpm and torque of 94 lb/ft at 8,250 rpm. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is achieved in 2.6 seconds. In 2009, BMW replaced the K1200 R with K1300 R, which is a faster, powerful and more efficient version. We are confident that Amir Khan will not be testing out the top speed of this mean machine on the sets of Dhoom 3 even as he is escaping from tough cops Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra.
