Vivek Oberoi recently bought a black-and-yellow Ducati 1098 last week and drove it to Hrithik Roshan's birthday party on Saturday night. Says a source close to Vivek, "VO bought the Ducati just a couple of days ago. His friend Ashish helped him choose it. When he rode it into Hrithik's party, Duggu and Abhishek Bahchan went fida over it while Vivek took b'day boy Farhan Akhtar out for a drive at 4 am. He picked Akhtar up from Shahrukh's home in Mannat where they went to, after Hrithik's birthday."
Vivek is quite the bike enthusiast. "VO has done many bike stunts in Prince. In fact, action director Allan Amin taught Vivek how to ride bikes as Vivek had to do the stunts himself. Often Vivek would go to the car park at Allan's residence and learn about bike control and cruising. Vivek earlier had a bike, which he exchanged for this one. He keeps only the old vintage classics and changes all other cars and bikes. VO even launched Dilip Chhabria's Imperator Sedan at the auto expo last week," adds the source.
Vivek even performed some exciting bike stunts at the Apsara awards last week. He says, "I couldn't have had a better start to 2010. I had to perform a bike stunts through fire and though I felt confident with Allan Amin being there and setting up the whole thing. Although, I do get a bit nervous when fire is involved. It went off really well. God (Shahrukh Khan) gave me a big hug and said 'Well done!' "
