MS Dhoni’s passion for motorcycles is well-known within the cricketing community. The former Indian captain from Ranchi has an extensive collection of bicycles in the garage of his Ranchi farmstead. After becoming famous, he has been photographed on superbikes on numerous occasions. MS Dhoni’s bicycle collection is unparalleled in the country.
MS Dhoni Bike Collection
Dhoni purchased his first motorcycle long before he became famous, and he still keeps it in his garage, despite the fact that its horsepower is negligible compared to that of his other MS Dhoni motorcycles. Here’s a look inside MS Dhoni’s garage:
1. Kawasaki Ninja H2
In April 2015, MS Dhoni added the Ninja H2 to his collection. As a result, he became the bike’s first owner in India. It boasts a 998 cc supercharged four-cylinder engine that produces 231 PS at 11,500 rpm and 141.7 Nm at the same speed. The Ninja H2 also has a 6-speed transmission.
2. Confederate X132 Hellcat
MS Dhoni displayed one of the world’s rarest motorcycles on the Buddh International Circuit. The Hellcat is an American motorcycle with a 2.2 liter V2 engine capable of producing 121 bhp and 190 Nm torque mated with a 5-speed transmission. The fenders on the 240-kg bike are made of carbon fiber.
3. Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R
The former captain purchased the black superbike over a decade ago. The Ninja ZX-14R is one of the fastest bikes in India, reaching a top speed of 335 kph. ABS, traction control, and a slipper clutch round out the bike’s distinctive features. It has a 1441 cc four-cylinder engine that produces 197.39 horsepower.
4. Harley Davidson FatBoy
A Harley Davidson had to be in the garage of someone who might be classified as a bike collector. Dhoni owns a Fatboy from the 2017 generation. Its 1690 cc V-Twin engine is air-cooled, making it one of only a handful of motorcycles in the world with that feature.
The engine can generate up to 77.78 PS (56.8 kW) at 5250 rpm and 132 Nm torque at 3250 rpm. A 6-speed transmission is included with the engine. On highways, the Fatboy achieves speeds ranging from 17 to 20 kilometers per hour.
5. Ducati 1098
MS Dhoni purchased this limited-edition Ducati 1098 at the correct time, thereby completing his collection of superbikes. The ‘1098’ in the model’s name indicates that its engine is 1098 cc and is capable of producing 160 PS. There are three variations of this model: 1098, 1098S, and 1098R. It was the forerunner to the renowned Ducati 1198.
6. Yamaha RD350
MS Dhoni is believed to have six Yamaha RD350s in his garage. There are photographs and videos of him riding red and blue variations of the bicycle. The 350 in the appellation refers to the engine’s displacement.
It has a 350 cc engine capable of producing 30.5 horsepower at 6750 rpm and a maximum speed of approximately 150-170 kilometers per hour. It takes approximately 7 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour.
7. Yamaha Rajdoot
The Yamaha Rajdoot was a more expensive alternative to the RD350. It was the first bike MS Dhoni ever possessed. It was a 173 cc motorcycle with a maximum speed of 130 km/h and a 3-speed constant mesh transmission that was of high value.
8. Suzuki Shogun
It must be one of the most thrilling two-stroke single-cylinder motorcycles for Dhoni to ride. It is one of the earliest motorcycles in India, with a 108.2 cc engine producing 14 bhp at 8500 rpm and 11.4 Nm of torque at 8250 rpm. In its heyday, the discontinued model was sold for INR 18,000.
9. Yamaha Thundercat
Yamaha’s Thundercat is also referred to as the Yamaha YZF600R. It was manufactured from 1996 to 2007. This beast’s 599 cc engine is capable of producing approximately 100 horsepower and 67.5 Nm of torque at 11,500 rpm.
10. BSA Goldstar
The BSA Goldstar is included in Dhoni’s collection of vintage bicycles in Ranchi. It is a potent British motorcycle with a 500 cc single-cylinder engine that can produce up to 48 horsepower. Produced in the 1950s, it has a maximum speed of 100 kilometers per hour.
11. Norton Jubilee 250
It’s another classic bike from MS Dhoni’s collection. It has a 250 cc engine, as the name says. The bike was built in the United Kingdom in 1961 to mark Norton’s Silver Jubilee, which explains another reason for its name. It has a top speed of 120 kph and a maximum power of 16 horsepower @ 7,750 rpm.
12. TVS Apache RR 310
TVS’ brand ambassador, MS Dhoni, has introduced the Apache RR 310. This bike has a 312.2 cc single-cylinder engine that can produce up to 34 PS at 9,700 rpm and 27.3 Nm torque at 7,700 rpm. It has an unusually large fuel capacity of 11 liters for a bike of its caliber.
