The MS Dhoni bike collection is something worth going miles to see. MS Dhoni and bikes are synonymous with each other. Dhoni loves to live life in the fast lane. He cannot wish for a better companion on this journey than some of the fastest bikes available in India. Dhoni’s love for bikes is not new. He longed to own one right since the time he was in school. He used to borrow his friend’s bike and roam around the streets of Ranchi. As he rapidly climbed up the cricketing ladder, he had the opportunity to own the best bikes in the business.
The Dhoni bike collection starts with the humble Rajdoot RD350. He has more than one Rajdoot RD350 in his exquisite collection. In fact, Dhoni bought his first bike for INR 4,500. Today, he is the proud owner of fantastic bike models like Confederate Hellcat X32, Harley Davidson Fatboy, BSA Goldstar, Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R, Yamaha FZ1, Ducati 1098 and the latest one, Kawasaki Ninja H2.

Here are the five best bikes from the MS Dhoni bike collection.
Confederate Hellcat X32
Confederate Hellcat X32 is not only a powerful motorcycle but also one of the most expensive ones in the world as well. The price of this fantastic bike is in the range of USD 60K to 65K. Roughly translated, it comes to around more than INR 44 lakhs. MS Dhoni has a diverse taste in motorcycles. This vehicle occupies a prime place, not because of its cost, but because it is the one closest to Dhoni’s heart. It symbolises everything that Dhoni represents on the cricket field. It comes equipped with a powerful 2.2-litre V-Twin engine capable of churning a fantastic torque of 200 Nm and a maximum power of 132 bhp.
Confederate Hellcat X32 Speedster is not only one of the lightest but also the fastest of bikes that MS Dhoni owns. Hellcat X32 is a single-seat bike that allows the rider to lord over every other vehicle on the roads. Riding this bike is a tremendous experience because it shows that you are the boss of everything your survey. The aircraft-grade aluminium body makes it light and at the same time sturdy as well. The design and performance of this bike can take your breath away in the same way Dhoni smashes the bowlers all around the stadium for his trademark sixes.
Harley Davidson is an iconic brand, much in the same way MS Dhoni is in cricket. Talk of cricket and you cannot leave out Dhoni. Similarly, any discussion on bikes starts and ends with reference to Harley Davidson. The Fatboy never disappoints bike lovers as its V-Twin engines provide exemplary power. The 6-speed cruise-drive transmission system is ideal for Dhoni to zoom around on the highways. This vehicle comes with a perfect match between its engine and gearbox whereby cruising at triple digit speeds becomes child’s play.
The Harley Davidson Fatboy delivers excellent mileage of around 17 to 20 kmpl on highways. It is a tremendous achievement considering the size of the vehicle and its weight. Handling the Harley Davidson Fatboy is a dream as you settle down on the low seats and grab the flat, low handlebars. The forward mounted footboards allow you to adopt a relaxed old school riding position where you do not lean too much forward. It has perfectly sized wheels (140/75 on the front and 200/55 on the rear) to ensure that you have absolute control over the bike and the roads as well. Everyone would love to have the Harley Davidson Fatboy on his/her porch. The Harley Davidson Fatboy price in India is INR 17.49 lakhs, ex-showroom, New Delhi.
MS Dhoni loves fast bikes. When it comes to speed, there cannot be a better bike in India than the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R. This bike is capable of running at top speeds of more than 335 kmph. Dhoni is the best bet when it comes to accelerating the scoring rate in cricket. Similarly, no other bike can hold a candle to Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14X. This bike comes with a potent 1441 cc, 4-cylinder engine capable of producing a maximum power of 207 bhp.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R comes in a range of exotic dual colours. The low seat position provides absolute comfort to the back when you arch forward and raise the accelerator to achieve fantastic speeds. Appearance wise, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R is one of the best ones to adorn MS Dhoni bike collection. It is an extremely safe vehicle to drive as well because it comes with features like ABS, traction control system and slipper clutch.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R price tag of INR 19.49 lakhs makes it an expensive bike to own. However, riding this bike is the ultimate in satisfaction. Maybe the only thing that could give you more pleasure is MS Dhoni winning the World Cup for you.
Ducati 1098 was the first superbike in MS Dhoni bike collection after he attained superstardom by winning the T20 World Cup for India in 2007. Now, who does not know about a Ducati? Ducati is one of the first names that come to mind when it comes to naming fast racing bikes. It is similar to Dhoni in many ways because Dhoni is the first name when it comes to displaying stability and maturity on the cricket field even in times of extreme pressure.
Ducati 1098 is no longer available in India, as the company halted production after introducing Ducati 1198. However, this bike comes with a powerful 1099 cc engine that can deliver maximum power of 160 bhp. Ducati is among the favourites in Dhoni bike collection.
At the time of its purchase, Ducati bike price in India was in the price bracket of INR 25 to 30 lakhs. Besides its splendid looks, this bike is a powerhouse when it comes to performance. It does not give an inch to its competitors much in the same way Dhoni competes on the cricket field. In many ways, Ducati 1098 is an ideal bike in the MS Dhoni bike collection because its qualities are the closest to the owner of the bike, MS Dhoni.
