Keanu Reeves has the best collection of motorcycles in the …
Keanu Reeves is possibly one of the most legendary actors on the planet. He’s starred in some terrific films – the Matrix trilogy (now aâ¦ quadrilogy?), Point Break, Speed, John Wick, Bill & Tedâ¦ even in the virtual world of Cyberpunk 2077 video game!
But he is not only a leading player. Away from Hollywood, Keanu has an endless list of accolades that underscore his credentials as a legendary human being. A quick online search will tell you, including gifting engraved Rolex watches to the John Wick 4 stunt team, or even cutting your own salary on the set for the sake of others. Never before, really.
Coolest of all, realistically, is that on the last day of filming the first Matrix fight scene (post huge fight scene), Reeves gifted each member of Team 12 with a Harley-Davidson. stuntmen! It is believed that the price of each bike ranged from $ 7,000 to $ 40,000!
This garage offers an impressive variety of classic models, limited series and simply great motorcycles – as shown in a video interview with GQ
He discusses the founding of Arch Motorcycles with designer and builder friend Gard Hollinger, and covers the history of his then current collection.
It’s a brilliant watch, which tells of how he started riding on two wheels and where he learned to drive on the set of a movie in Munich – even how he waived the contractual clauses not to ride a motorcycle when of the shoot!
Before this post turns into a sanctuary written for the Canadian guy, let’s take a look at his collection of motorcycles – something he clearly has a deep-rooted passion for.
You’ll regularly see Keanu bringing his passion for two-wheelers to the screen as well, as the motorcycles work their way into the plot in one way or another.
Keanu Reeves Motorcycle Collection
The Norton Commando 850 (1973 Mk2A), the second bike he bought and “had a lot of fun” with, kicked off his garage visit, after Arch motorcycles. His first purchase was a Kawasaki 600 Enduro, and he followed it along with many other Nortons over the years.
As cited by MotorBikeWriter, Reeves owned a Suzuki GS1100E, Suzuki GSX-R750, BMW R75 / 6 (1974), Kawasaki KZ 900, Harley-Davidson Shovelhead (1984) among many others that he bought and sold while while filming away from home.
Imagine registering your bike on the local sales site for Keanu Reeves to knock on your door …
Tucked away in the garage is also the Ducati 998 (2004) of the Matrix Reloaded in a special âMatrix Greenâ color. It is a motorcycle of which he is currently the âkeeperâ on behalf of the Wachowskis. Interestingly, on movie screens it looks like it’s the Ducati 996, but the 998 is in the garage.
Quickly, too, this Ducati is the bike co-star Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity) learned to ride for the movie!
His track-specific stable includes a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R, displayed alongside Gard’s Yamaha R1 (in iconic Kenny Roberts gear block graphics) and a few fellow Aprilia. His passion for bikes is more than a side hobby, he’s literally obsessed – like all of us.
Of course, it goes without saying that there are quite a few ARCH models as well, the KRGT-1 and the 1S to name just two hand-built machines with stylish buckets.
It also appears that Keanu has a custom El Diablo West Coast Chopper in his collection, reminiscent of his fascination with the Toronto motorcycle gangs who he says first turned his gaze to the world of two wheels.
So all things considered, whether on screen or off, Keanu Reeves has one of the best collections of motorcycles.
What a legend. We love Keanu.
I guess it turned into a shrine written for him – well.
