Superstars and celebrities like to flaunt their heavy engine bikes when they hit the road and usually go for brands such as Harley Davidson or Japanese superbikes but one can always expect something unique when Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan decides to bring a two-wheeler home.

The Bollywood star has become a proud owner of the new Bajaj V, a motorcycle which contains metal of India's de-commissioned aircraft carrier INS Vikrant.

The new V made for Aamir has a customized embossing of the initial A on the fuel tank and one-off graphic design of "Chote Lal" affectionately inscribed on the rear seat cowl.

Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of Bajaj Auto made some customization in the bike. He met Aamir at his residence in Mumbai and personally handed over his customised V15 to him.

Aamir said, “The V is a special bike and I wouldn’t compare it with anything else. It has a piece of history ingrained into it. For me it’s a proud moment to own a piece of metal from INS Vikrant which was the military pride of India for decades.”

The Dhoom 3 star, 50, known for his passion towards social and national causes, was inspired to buy the V15 when he learnt that the Bajaj V contains metal from INS Vikrant.

All said, it will be interesting to see will the close friendship form some business alliance in future, maybe Bajaj Appointing Khan as the Brand Ambassador for their bikes. Khan has earlier endorsed Mahindra’s two-wheeler Stallio.

INS Vikrant was commissioned as the first aircraft carrier of the Indian Navy. After years of distinguished service, she was decommissioned in January 1997.
