All across the world, sportsmen in general are looked at as people with a great affinity towards high end vehicles. They own high end products in the two and four wheeler spectrum, i.e both motorbikes and cars, thus acquiring ownership of some real beast of machines available in the market. But it is quite normal, is it not? There is a firm connection between the two, which would be the much sought after ‘adrenaline rush’! These monsters keep their need of that adrenaline rush off the field in check and also act as a hobby for most of them. Our beloved cricketers are no different and are not spared by the motorbikes bug. In this article, we would specifically focus on Indian cricketers and their fetish for superbikes!
