Beckham opts for £55,000 motorbike

by  | 

David Beckham could have caused concern for his football club when he was seen riding a high-powered custom motorcycle.

The football star's bike, a Confederate Hellcat, cost £55,000 and is also the preferred choice of Hollywood actors Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.

V-twin engine machines such as this often have costly bike insurance premiums due to the high speeds they reach as well as the cost.

This is not the former England captain's first motorcycle - his previous two-wheeler was the world's fastest production bike, the Suzuki Hayabusa.

However, LA Galaxy may worry for their midfielder's safety in light of Carlo Cudicini's motorcycling accident last year that caused him to miss games for Tottenham Hotspur with a fractured pelvis and broken wrists.

Victoria Beckham is also believed to be considering mirroring her husband's interest in bikes by learning to drive one.
