"It was after John got his own motorcycle transported from Mumbai to London for the shoot that he learnt about Akshay sharing similar interest in two-wheelers," said a source.
"A few months later, John promised to gift Akshay a bike to celebrate their success (of their third film) together."
Speaking of the gift, Abraham said: "Since the first time we worked together, Akshay has always been a strong support. He loved the motorcycle, so it's my way of showing my love and respect for him.
"I love motorcycles and so does Akshay. So I thought the best thing for me to gift him is something we both love. So I chose a Harley Davidson."
The actors first worked together seven years ago in Garam Masala
and have reportedly become very good friends. Housefull 2
is their third film together. The comedy sequel has reportedly given Kumar his biggest opening weekend in over a year, following some flops in 2011.
The Rowdy Rathore
star has revealed that plans are under way for a second sequel in the popular franchise.
