Just what is it about boys and their toys? Find out right here!

Freddy Daruwala, a prominent Indian male model who's a fixture at fashion weeks swears by lean, mean, fast machines! Here, he tells us about the five best bikes he's ever ridden.

1. Yamaha RD 350

Now the Yamaha RD 350 may not be in production anymore, but this bike of the '80s is perhaps the oldest and the best friend of any Parsi biker.

Though not the best to maneuvre, it is very fast and fun to ride.

Sadly, there are no more two-stroke bikes in production, but this mean machine is quite something.

If you haven't ridden it already, you must lay your hands on this one. Like now!

The Honda CBR600RR is a great bike for moderate to thick traffic conditions.

It has great controlling and is nice and easy to handle.

What I like about this bike is that it is not massive. It has a fantastic design and is a pleasure to ride.

Like all other bikers I know, I too swear by the Suzuki Hayabusa.

It's a superbly powerful machine and that's precisely the reason why it should not be the first superbike you should ride or own. Go for something less powerful and then graduate to the Hayabusa.

The Suzuki Hayabusa is said to be the fastest in production city bike and is also quite expensive!

4. Yamaha R1

Now the Yamaha R1 is my alltime favourite bike. It has great technology and has a great response to throttle and superb control.

Even though it is a 1000 cc bike, it doesn't give you the feel of one because it is so easy to ride.

The only problem is that the seating can be a little uncomfortable, especially with a pillion.

That's the bike I own! The Honda CBR900RR Fireblade has a 130 bhp engine and goes from 0-100 kmh in 3.1 seconds.

It is as fast as they come.

What makes the Fireblade so great is that despite being so powerful, it isn't very difficult to control.

The only hitch is that you don't find its tyres very easily because it has a 16-inch front tyre.
