Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's little ones are growing up so fast!

The Moneyball star and Oscar-winning actress' oldest son Maddox turned 11 on Aug. 5 and papa Pitt made sure to get his son a grown-up gift to celebrate his coming of age.

Pitt bought a Suzuki DRZ-125 motorbike, a rep for the automobile and dirt bike company confirms to E! News. The sports vehicle was purchased at a dealership in Ruislip, Germany.

"He wants the boys to be able to ride them on private land," a source tells E! News of Pitt, who was spotted browsing bikes at HGB Motorbikes in Ruislip back in June. "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."

And yes, the birthday gift is age appropriate for 11-year-old Maddox. The DRZ-125 model is made specifically for the youth and young adult markets and only reaches a top speed on 50 miles per hour.

If you recall, Pitt and Maddox have a history in their love for off-road adventures together.

Back in 2005 when Pitt and Jolie first hooked up, Pitt and a then 4-year-old Maddox were spotted sporting around on a motorbike outside Jolie's Buckinghamshire, England estate.

Let's hope Jolie's bday gift to Maddox was some safety gear and a helmet!
