Brad Pitt has bought a Suzuki DRZ-125 motorcycle for his son Maddox, who turned 11 on August 5.
The sport bike was purchased at a dealership in Ruislip, Germany, where Brad was spotted browsing vehicles last June.
Interestingly enough, this particular model is "made specifically for the youth and young adult markets and only reaches a top speed on 50 miles per hour," according to E! News. The new DR-Z series bikes retail for approximately $6,200, but Brad reportedly purchased a used model, so the price tag on Maddox's present was likely a bit lower.
Brad has at least a half dozen bikes in his garage, including a vintage Ducati and a Russian Ural Tourist motorbike, so it seems only fitting that he'd want his son to pick up the hobby. A source tells E!, "He wants the boys to be able to ride them on private land. It'll be a fun thing for them to do, and obviously he has a real passion for bikes which he'd like to pass on."

Brad reportedly spent $390,000 on a Patek Philippe Minute Repeater, which is one of the world’s most expensive watches. There's normally a two year wait list on the timepiece, and it takes two months to make.
A source tells The Sun: "Brad decided to buy one of the amazing watches after meeting the Stern family at a watch fair in Basel. He wanted to buy Ange a unique gift that very few people own which is like a piece of art — and the highly sophisticated watch is just that. It chimes sounds based on Big Ben and is constructed by hand. He went to Geneva to pick it up and it’s believed he’ll present it to Ange as a pre-wedding gift.”
