Here’s a thing that’s like, totally gnarly dude. Keanu Reeves is going to do laps of Suzuka this weekend at both ends of the Suzuka 8-hour!

The Canadian actor, famous for star roles in films including The Matrix, Speed, the fabulous – yeah, it is, no arguing – Point Break and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey (you sunk my battleship…) will be out at the Japanese track to ride his new bike, the Arch KRGT-1.


Reeve’s is part owner of the Arch company in the States and the bike is powered by a S&S T124 twin-cam, two litre motor that kicks out 121bhp and tips the scales at 244kg dry.


The bike also has Ohlins suspension and carbon fibre wheel rims.


Reeves is proper mad keen on his bikes, he’s not some wannabe Hollywood luvvie – he’s been riding since he was a kid and owns a host of on and off-road style motorcycles.


So Keanu, dude, you want to ride this bike at Suzuka huh? Makes me go pale just thinking about it…
