Zayed Khan recently bought a Ducati Street Fighter 1100 cc and he cannot stop raving about it. The actor who has ventured out on Mumbai's mean streets on his Street Fighter says that the bike has some unique features which no other bike has. "The best feature about the bike is that it's stronger and leaner than the old model, and much more agile. The softer springs at either end and bigger wheel angle area help the biker to weave through the bends with precision and control. Negotiating the traffic becomes extremely easy as you are not bending the way you do on other race bikes that only turn at 45 degrees making it difficult to move in and out of certain situations. I love it because it has the power of a race bike but is designed in a way to negotiate traffic," gushed Khan.
Zayed, who like any guy has been fascinated by bikes ever since he was a kid, was only allowed a bike by his parents a few years back. That's when he bought a Fireblade. "I loved the Fireblade model too, but was always on the lookout for something more exciting, and the search ended with Street Fighter."
Ask him if he has any other model on his wish list and he laughs. "Getting this one was like a mission because it was not easy to convince my family who fear for my safety. As of now I am happy with this one."
