On the launch of the new YZF-R3 by Yamaha, actor and brand ambassador John Abraham said, “I have been associated with Yamaha for about 13 years now. I know five-stars don’t allow motorcycles but we should all be proud to be motocyclists. I have many motocycles with me and I enjoy riding them whenever I get time.” The new bike was launched at Auto Expo Motor Show 2018, Greater Noida.

On a stronger note, the actor gave out the message that driving safe is the key to motorcycling. The essentials are wearing a helmet, driving carefully and following the rules.
