Mumbai: Actor-producer John Abraham, a bike enthusiast, who is also buying a spot in the Moto 2 format of motorcycle road racing championship, says he is even planning a movie on "serious motor cycling".

"I would love to take my love forward by planning a film, I am scripting a film on serious motor cycling which is my next step," the 40-year-old said here Friday at an event to showcase the Aprilia RSV4 bike.

Commenting on the news surrounding his decision to buy a spot in Moto 2, he said: "The talks have reached a pretty advanced stage. I am interested in the Moto 2 format."

"It`s the Moto 2, Moto 3 and Moto GP. The Moto 2 is the 500 cc. That`s where my interest lies, I don`t have too much money for the Moto GP team," he added.

However, he clarified that for now "we are looking for partners".

"It`s premature to say who my partner is because how it works is that you have a partner for chassis, engine and the sponsor," he said.

The Moto 2 is one of the classes of racing organised under the Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix.

"For the Moto GP team, I think another 15 days. That will be a formal announcement, hopefully with a launch if it happens this time. If we don`t get a seat this time, because there are a number of people vying for the same spot, then it`ll be delayed," John said.

The actor-producer is currently basking in the success of his latest film `Madras Cafe`. He has also started shooting for `Welcome Back.`
