Guess he won't necessarily be buying American?

Promoting Inglourious Basterds in Japan, Brad Pitt is cruising for a new motorcycle after last month's crash in L.A. with photographers and his most beloved hog, the Associated Press reports.

"I had a little mishap," Pitt, told reporters of his Oct. 24 run-in with a paparazzo's car. "No injuries, except my ego. I was trying to get away from some paparazzi and instead gave them a good story."

As photo agency X17 first reported, the 45 year-old actor -- wearing a helmet -- fell off his motorcycle after being cut off by a photographer pursuing him. After exchanging heated words with the paparazzo, an uninjured Pitt left the brand-new bike -- it had been delivered to his home days before --to be driven away in his assistant's car.

Although no damage to the cycle was reported, the father of six seems to have left it behind for good. "It was my favorite bike," the well-known motorcycle enthusiast told reporters in Tokyo. "So that is really sad."

Good thing he's plugging his lead in the Quentin Tarantino film in the land of the rising sun, then. "I will definitely be looking at motorcycles [here]," he said said. "You've got some of the best builders right here."
