Everybody knows MS Dhoni’s love and passion for biking. He has the most amazing bike collection in India. The count of his motorcycles has crossed 100. Not only for cricket but he is also famous for flaunting on his swanky rides. He owns a collection of exclusive bikes like the Confederate Hellcat X132, Ducati 1098, Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R, Harley Davidson Fatboy and many more. Dhoni bought his first bike even before he became famous and he still has it in his garage. He takes a very good care of his bikes and has been captured a lot of times while washing them. His wife Sakshi Dhoni often posts about his serious deep cleaning sessions. On that note, let’s have a look on MS Dhoni bike collection:
MS Dhoni Bike Collection
1. Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R
Mahi bought this black superbike almost a decade ago. It is one of the best bikes in India when it comes to speed, i.e., 335 kph. Instead of green, Dhoni has black unit. Features like traction control system, slipper clutch and ABS makes the bike even more special. It has 4-cylinder 1441 cc engine that puts out 197.39 bhp of maximum power. The bike is available in India at Rs. 20,45,487-Rs. 24,84,305.
2. Confederate X132 Hellcat
Only 150 such bikes exist in the world and therefore, it is on of the rarest bikes. MS Dhoni is the only South East Asian to own one of these amazing motorcycles. The hellcat draws power from a 2.2 L V-Twin and produces 132 HP and 200 Nm. Other owners include celebrities like Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, David Beckham and Ryan Reynolds. Mahi was seen testing the limits of this bike in the Buddh International Circuit.
3. Kawasaki Ninja H2
Out of all, this beast is one of Dhoni’s favorite bike. He is the very first owner of Ninja H2 in India. The numbers associated with it are pretty intense. It runs on a 998 cc four-cylinder supercharged engine which delivers 231 PS at 11,500 rpm and 141.7 Nm at 11,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. He bought this beast in April,2015 when it was still Rs. 29 lakhs (ex-showroom). The MotoGP on this bike makes effortless and quicker gear shifts possible. Even after four years, there’s only a handful number of Ninja H2 owners in India. And in today’s time, the same bike will cost you almost ₹35 lakh.
4. Harley Davidson Fatboy
Dhoni has been often captured riding on this bike on the roads of Ranchi. Dhoni’s bike, however, is a previous-generation Fat Boy. One that continued to sport that round head lamp and came with a 1690cc air-cooled, twin-cam V-twin, which produced approximately 75bhp of power – although Harley-Davidson never really revealed the power figures since its bikes are all about the torque. And it’s got plenty of it – 130Nm to be precise. When it comes to the Fat Boy, Harley has ensured it doesn’t get too experimental, and retains its iconic good looks, which, along with its performance, have made it the brand’s flagship, and one of the best Softail cruisers in the world.
5. Ducati 1098
The 1098 was manufactured by Ducati during 2007 and 2009 and was designed by Giandrea Fabbro. The bike shares a lot of the unique characteristics of its predecessor 998 such as the single-sided swingarm. The bike makes over 160 hp and can go from 0 to 60 mph in under 3.0 seconds. The 1098 weights 173 kg and boasts a top speed of 270 km/h. Ducati 1098 was recognised as the 2008 Bike of the Year by Cycle World. Ducati 1098 is no longer available in India, as the company halted production after introducing Ducati 1198. At the time of its purchase, Ducati bike price in India was in the price bracket of INR 25 to 30 lakhs.
