MUMBAI: That Johnny Bravo aka John Abraham has a need for speed, we all knew. But his intense passion for speed machines was on full display, along with the beasts themselves, at the Mumbai International Motor Show 2013 held in (where else?) Mumbai recently.

John Abraham came clad in a classic blue jeans-white shirt combo, and was seen straddling a beauty. Before you get your hearts racing, we mean a bike, of course! The sexy hunk showed off his passion for speed as he posed lovingly with the Yamaha VMax 1700cc motorcycle. This, after he inaugurated the show with Hannu Mikkola, 7 time world car rally champion after cutting the ceremonial ribbon.

John himself is a champion of a brand of bikes, and is always promoting safe riding. He’s spoken out time and again for bikers to adhere to strict traffic regulations, and stay protected using a helmet. The hunky ‘Race 2’ star is also seen at several automotive mag events, and bike and car rallies, displaying his fondness for speed.

Also on display were several very fast, very racy and very beautiful cars; including the Nissan 370Z Touring Coupe MT, the Hyundai Veloster 1.6 litre twin scroll turbo 4 cylinder engine car, the Mini Cooper, the vintage 1961 Fiat 2 cylinder, 500cc, air cooled engine car, and several other bikes and a couple of Harley Davidsons. The three day exhibition has several top auto makers participating including Audi, BMW, DSK Hyosung, Mahindra, Nissan, Skoda, Toyota, Honda, Yamaha and Volvo.
