Ace director Sanjay Gupta is known for his action-packed crime thrillers but not many may know that the filmmaker is also an avid motorcyclist. So, this Diwali, the ‘Shootout At Wadala’ director decided to splurge a little and bring home a new set of wheels. The newest entrant in the Guptas’ garage is the 2020 Kawasaki Versys 1000, which the director brought home over the festive weekend. The adventure touring motorcycle is priced at ₹ 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom India) and is one of the most reliable models in its class. Gupta also shared images of the same on social media.

A tweet from Sanjay Gupta read, “The joy of getting a new bike, that feeling, the wow factor never ever changes. I remember feeling the same even when I bought my first 100cc Hero Honda. This is the KAWASAKI VERSYS 1000.”

The joy of owning new wheels can never get old, no matter the experience and the number of motorcycles one has owned and ridden over the years. Gupta too has had a number of performance motorcycles in his garage over the years including the Triumph Thunderbird LT, while he also has a Yamaha V-Max that was gifted to him by actor John Abraham. He also owned a Harley-Davidson in the past.
