It is a well-known fact that India’s wicketkeeper and also one of the finest in the world, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a hardcore bike junkie. He has a huge collection of 23 bikes in his garage and he occasionally rides all of them. The collection consists of various antiques, superbikes, cruisers, and exotic bikes too.
Being a bike junkie, Dhoni has the choicest range of bikes. He also has a collection of cars, which mainly include high-end SUVs. Dhoni has been India’s wicketkeeper since 2004 and is the captain of Chennai Super Kings in IPL. The cars and bikes that he has define the quality of his game in ODIs, T20s, IPL and all. However, his car collection does not attract as much attention as the bike collection demands. His bike collection ranges from the exotic Hellcat, Kawasaki Ninja H2, Ducati 1098 to classics such as BSA Goldstar, Norton Jubilee 250, Yamaha Rajdoot 350 and more. Since his teens, he was fascinated by bikes and the first bike he bought was Yamaha Rajdoot 350. His car range includes the monster Hummer H2, GMC Sierra, Ferrari 599 GTO, Mahindra Scorpio, Mitsubishi Pajero and more. Sierra, an American pickup truck is a very rare sight in India.
Bikes and Cars of MS Dhoni – Dhoni’s Bike Collection
Kawasaki Ninja H2
We start off the list of MS Dhoni Cars and Bikes with an exotic – Kawasaki Ninja H2. The numbers associated with this superbike are pretty intense. It gets 998 cc 4 cylinder engine that benefits from supercharging. Maximum power output stands at 200 hp @ 11000 rpm and peak torque at 134 Nm @ 10500 rpm. Dhoni bought the bike earlier this year. The 2017 model Kawasaki Ninja H2 is on sale in India for Rs. 33.30 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Confederate X132 Hellcat
This is probably one of the rarest bikes in the world as only 150 exist. MS Dhoni is the only South East Asian customer to own one of these crazy machines. Other owners include A-Listers such as Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, David Beckham and Ryan Reynolds. The Hellcat draws power from a 2.2 L V-Twin that churns out 132 hp and 200 Nm. Dhoni took his bike for a spin at the Buddh International Circuit too.
MS Dhoni’s love for bike bikes continues with the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R. It gets 4 cylinder 1441 cc engine that puts out 197.39 bhp of maximum power. It boasts a top speed of 335 km/h! The bike is available in India at Rs. 16.80 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The ZX-14R is the saner of the two Ninjas Mahendra Singh Dhoni owns.
Harley Davidson FatBoy
Next up on our list of the MS Dhoni Cars and Bikes is the Harley Davidson Fatboy. This cruiser can be bought in India for a little over 17 lakhs. It comes with a 1690 cc engine that makes 65 bhp. Dhoni has been spotted riding around Ranchi on this one on numerous occasions.
Finding a place in MS Dhoni’s bike garage is the Ducati 1098. The 1098 was sold from 2007-2008 internationally and was also available in India. At the time, it was on sale for around 25-30 lakhs. The 1099 cc engine that powers the bike makes around 160 hp. It was succeeded by the Ducati 1198.
The Yamaha RD350 or Rajdoot has a cult following in India. And like any bike lover, Dhoni is a fan too. Apparently, the RD350 was the first bike he bought. Following years of neglect, the bike ended up looking like this. However, he has now completely restored the bike. Also, this isn’t the only RD350 in his possession.
More than a year back, Dhoni put up a picture on Instagram of a Suzuki Shogun with the caption, “How many of u agree this was 1 of the most exciting 2stroke single cylinder bikes to ride,need to restore mine quickly.” We have not see the final result of the restoration anywhere.
This is one perhaps one of the most famous sports tourers of its time. The Yamaha Thundercat or YZF600R was manufactured between 1996 and 2007. It came with a 599 cc engine that made around 88 bhp. Here is a picture of MS Dhoni from a few years back posing with his Yamaha Thundercat and Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R.
One of the two classic motorcycles in MS Dhoni’s bike collection is the BSA Goldstar. It was one of the first British Motorcycles to breach the 100 km/h mark. It draws power from a 500cc engine. Here is a picture of MS Dhoni astride his BSA Goldstar.
Norton Jubilee 250
The second vintage bike in MS Dhoni Cars and Bikes collection is the Norton Jubilee 250. The cricketer shared a picture on Instagram of his bike. As the name suggests, it draws power from a 250cc engine.
Bikes and Cars of MS Dhoni – Dhoni’s Car Collection
Ferrari 599 GTO
While it’s Dhoni’s Hummer H2 that has made a lot of news, of course, for all the right reasons, it’s his Ferrari 599 GTO that has to be our favorite machine among all the bikes and cars of MS Dhoni.
The 599 GTO looks really cool. What’s even cooler is the 6.0-litre Naturally Aspirated V12 that lurks underneath that hood. This car has a max. power of 661 BHP, which makes it one of the most powerful machines among all bikes and cars of MS Dhoni.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s car collection is not as extensive as his bike collection. He owns a handful of SUV, though. Perhaps the most talked about is his Hummer H2. At the time of purchase, MSD paid close to crore for the giant American SUV. Altough Hummer shut shop a long time back, they’re still one of the most well-known SUV brands across the globe.
Most Indians might not be aware of the GMC brand. However, their name is synonymous with big, full-size SUVs in the American Market. Owned by General Motors, GMC manufactures a wide range of SUVs and pickup trucks. And one of them has found its way into MS Dhoni’s garage.
Like most celebrities in India and across the globe, MSD also owns an Audi Q7. His black Q7 has been spotted in Ranchi many times. This SUV from Audi is popular among the rich as evident from the relatively large number of Q7s populating big city roads. Dhoni owns the previous generation Audi Q7.
Mitsubishi Pajero SFX
One of at least four SUVs in MS Dhoni’s possession is the Mitsubishi Pajero. The Pajero still enjoys a strong fan following in India despite having been discontinued. Reports of MS Dhoni owning a Pajero are a few years old. We’re not sure if he still has the SUV.
Land Rover Freelander 2
The last entry on our list of MS Dhoni Cars and Bikes is the Land Rover Freelander 2. The captain of the Indian Cricket team owns a pre-facelift black Freelander. The model has now been discontinued having been replaced by the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Last, but certainly not the least, Mahi’s car collection also includes a Mahindra Scorpio. The Scorpio, while not being anywhere as premium as the H2 or even the Freelander 2, is a butch SUV from the mass market. Thanks to its aggressive stance and the commanding position it offers, the Scorpio seems to have made its way to Dhoni’s garage.
Currently, the Mahindra Scorpio is powered by a 2.2-litre mHawk engine that outputs 120 BHP and 280 Nm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed Manual Transmission as standard. There’s also an optional 6-speed Automatic Transmission on offer. The company claims a mileage of over 15 KMPL. This SUV can be bought in both 2WD and 4WD formats. That said, it’s the 2WD that’s far more popular. The Mahindra Scorpio is the least expensive car in MS Dhoni’s car collection.
