Tom Cruise returns as Maverick on the set of ‘Top Gun 2’ and looks as if he hasn't aged at all
Tom Cruise was spotted riding a rather expensive motorcycle on the set of "Top Gun: Maverick," the sequel to the 1986 blockbuster hit.
The 56-year-old actor was photographed taking the slick vehicle for a spin in San Diego, California, where the famous sequel is being filmed.
As reported by the Daily Mail, the Cruise will be reprising his role as LT Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell and doesn't seem to have aged one bit.

The Hollywood star was wearing the character's trademark olive jacket and sunglasses, along with denim bottoms and boots while riding a limited edition Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon.
CHOOSING THE RIGH BIKE
That was the bike chosen by Cruise and only 120 were made; aside from costing $30,000 brand new, they have a top speed of 209 mph, making them one of the fastest road legal bikes in the world.
Cruise is an avid bike rider, so he knows his vehicles rather well. The bike is also the closest modern representation of the famous bike that Maverick rode in the original film, a Kawasaki GPZ900R.
The movie was originally scheduled to come out years ago but, unfortunately, Tony Scott, the director of Top Gun, took his own life in 2012, causing the project to be put on hold.
Now, the movie is expected to be released in theaters on June 26, 2020, which gives producers plenty of time to work on the complex fight scenes.

KILMER REPORTING TO DUTY
Aside from Cruise, it has been confirmed that Val Kilmer will return to play the role of LT Tom 'Iceman' Kazanksy. The actor recently battled throat cancer and had to be submitted to surgery, which left him with a raspy voice and shortness of breath.
Back in July, Cruise shared a health update on Kilmer's cancer status, claiming that he was doing 'well' and that he was ready to play Iceman once more.
