Bikes that Completely Rocked the ‘Dhoom’ Series
Modified On Oct 30, 2018 By Pradeep Shah
The best motorcycling based Bollywood blockbuster - Dhoom does not need any introduction among the biking enthusiasts. The movie series kicked started with its first edition released in the year 2004. John Abraham with his Hayabusa gave the speed maniacs their dose of adrenaline rush and started a new chapter in motorcycling in his own way.
Today, we bring together all bikes used in the Dhoom series to our viewers to introduce them with the epic bikes in a better way.
Soon after hitting the screens, Dhoom started the wind of high-speed motorcycling in the country due to its action-packed motorcycle sequences and stunt scenes. First time in Bollywood, a movie involved numerous high-speed supersport machines throughout its length to create a strong storyline.
3. Suzuki GSX-R 600
The bad fellowmen of Kabir were seen accompanying him on this bike. The machine comes powered by a 599cc, four-stroke, liquid-cooled engine that gave enough revs to the thieves to get rid off the annoying police gypsies.
2. Suzuki Bandit
The stylish yellow machine was ridden by the cool guy portrayed in the film called as Ali. Uday Chopra played his role perfectly just like the bike that comes loaded with a 1,255cc, four-stroke, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that cranks out a peak power of 98bhp along with 110Nm of maximum torque. The bike comes at a price of Rs. 10.75 lac (ex-showroom, Delhi).
1. Suzuki GSX-1300R Hayabusa
The bike gained immense amount of popularity after the release of the movie and the Hayabusa attained the much deserved high star stature in the country. The youth of the nation got a new two-wheeled icon and a new machine to dream about. The red-black Hayabusa in the movie was used by John Abraham to zoom away in style after a robbery. His bike even had a NOS (Nitrous Oxide System) setup that made his bike a ballistic missile on the roads. However, the end of the movie gave a heartbreak to the fans of John as he jumped into the sea with the bike and loads of money in order to avoid a police arrest. The Hayabusa presently comes at a price of Rs. 15.9 lac (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Dhoom 2 (2006)
The second edition of the blockbuster hit came in year 2006 in which Hrithik Roshan aka Mr. A aka Aryan completely stole the show. However, the movie was not based on a total motorcycling affair like the first edition of Dhoom yet turned out to be a hit due to the technology and innovation being involved.
2. Suzuki GSR 600
The 600cc middleweight tourer from Suzuki was used by Abhishek Bachchan in the movie during his chase with Aryan. Later on, Aishwarya Rai aka Sunehri used the same model to escape.
1. Suzuki GSX-R 1000
Aryan used the litre-class from Suzuki to run away from Abhishek Bachchan. The high speed chase was shot with Hrithik moving ahead with Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra chasing him on their respective machines. Uday Chopra (Ali) also used the same model to catch the thief. You have to pay Rs. 15.9 lac (ex-showroom price) if you wish to park this monster in your garage.
Dhoom 3 (2013)
The latest version of Dhoom broke all records on the Box office due to people’s sky high expectations. However, the movie turned out to be a disappointment considering the storyline and other factors. Just like the villain was replaced from Hrithik to Aamir, their supersport companions also got changed.
2. BMW S1000RR
Uday Chopra was seen riding the S1000RR from BMW and chose a replacement for his Suzuki Bandit and GSX-R1000 which he used in the prequels of Dhoom. The red and white coloured bike comes powered by a 999cc, four-stroke engine that churns out a maximum power of 195.2bhp at 13,500rpm with a peak torque of 113Nm at 10,500rpm. BMW S1000RR comes at a whopping price of Rs. 27.55 lac (ex-showroom, Delhi) in the Indian market.
1. BMW K1300R
The Suzuki GSX-R 1300 Hayabusa was moved aside and the BMW K1300RR came into the picture. The team chose the BMW for Aamir as well as they firmly believed it would suit the villain’s image. As Aamir was doing a double role in the movie, he used the same bike to ride in his two roles. The bikes comes loaded with a 1,293cc, water-cooled mill that cranks out a peak power output of 173bhp at 9,250rpm with a maximum torque of 140Nm at 8,250rpm. The bike costs Rs. 19.50 lac (ex-showroom, Delhi) in India.
