Ryan Reynolds, the superstar who portrayed Marvel Comics’ Deadpool is an avid biker.
He fancies café racers and customs.
He de-stresses by riding his motorcycles.
Okay, okay, it’s not what motorcycles Deadpool rides in the movies, but what superstar Ryan Reynolds who plays the (anti) hero rides.
Ryan Reynolds has actually been in the show business since 1991 but it was arguably the Deadpool franchise which made him an A-list celebrity. Anyway, it was revealed that he loved motorcycles more than cars in a number of interviews.
His character in The Hitman’s Bodyguard rode a Triumph Speed Triple, after all.
He told Men’s Health, “I love the fact when you’re on a motorcycle, riding a motorcycle is the only thing you’re doing.” Great advice on how to unwind from a busy schedule and parenthood.
Right, let’s take a look at what are in Deadpo… Reynolds’ collection.
Customized Triumph Thruxton
Reynold’s Triumph Thruxton is one of his most famous bikes and he was instrumental in the customization process. Triumph had presented the actor the bike but he wanted Kott Motorcycles of Los Angeles to build it to look like the old Thruxton.

Customized 1964 Triumph 650 “Nine O’ Clock Gun”
The Nine O’ Clock Gun is a naval cannon which fired every night at, you guessed it, 9pm everyday in his native Vancouver, Canada. It was designed and built by Factory Metal Works.
Triumph Bonneville and Triumph Tiger
Reynolds bought the modern Bonneville and the classic Tiger (not the Tiger 800 or Tiger 1200 adventure bikes) sometime in 2005.
If it’s not apparent yet, Reynolds loves café racers so these two were his first choices as he could customize them himself.
Speaking on Triumph’s For the Ride lifestyle microsite, he revealed that, “There aren’t many material things in life you can really invest in, but with a motorcycle it’s emotional. I’ve put a lot of time, energy and thought into my Bonnie.”
And he sure did put a lot of riding miles into the Bonneville, “My Bonneville is a bike that has taken me safety across the country on a least three occasions and there’s no substitute for the feeling that accompanies me on a long ride.”
Ducati Paul Smart Limited Edition
Reynolds had been spotted riding on a Ducati Paul Smart Limited Edition, the successor of the 1972 Ducati 750 Imola which commemorated the rider Paul Smart’s all-important victory at the Imola 200 race.
Although his collection isn’t as extensive as Jay Leno’s, who knows it may grow bigger soon.
