Former England football team captain, David Beckham, was driving his F131 Hellcat Combat motorcycle for a spin around Los Angeles, geared from head to toes with a black helmet, gloves, jacket and boots to match. The famous footballer of LA Galaxy reportedly owns the special motorbike collection including GBP 40,000 (USD 64,000 or EUR 46,000) that he only rides on a racetrack, Harley V-Rod or the Ducati Monster 1100 that he used for a test drive in August. American handsome actor, Tom Cruise, who is a close friend of Beckham, is reported to also own the same bike.

The Hellcat Combat is a limited edition variant of the Hellcat series’ second and final generation, priced at GBP 55,000 (USD 88,000 or EUR 63,400). It features the specific hand ported and polished head design, ultra high compression, special camshaft grind and retuned intake system, which harmoniously results in a 12% gain in rear wheel horsepower and a 4% increase in rear wheel torque.

The Confederate radial F131 CID engine powering this mean machine develops no less than 149 horsepower and 150 ft. lbs. (203 Nm). Front and rear compression and rebound suspension rates are recalculated, while a new sport seat and Combat specific finish completes the machine.
Besides, it is about 50 percent heavier than most motorcycles and can go from 0-60mph in four second.
It is famous for creating machines that are said to celebrate and embody the true American spirit
Many clubs ban their top players from riding the high-powered motorbikes for fear that they will get seriously injured in an accident. Last year Spurs goalie Carlo Cudicini broke his pelvis and wrists in a horror motorbike smash in London.
