Mahendra Singh Dhoni is known for his love of motorcycles and cricket. Chennai Super Owner N Srinivasan spoke about how Dhoni developed a love for the city of Chennai where he spent his time playing for CSK. He said that the franchise gave him a bike on the first day and he disappeared and roamed around the city.
Dhoni’s love for motorcycles is a widely popular fact on the internet. The former captain of the Indian cricket team owns dozens of old motorcycles and many modern superbikes and touring machines. N Srinivasan says Dhoni’s love for Chennai evolved on a motorcycle.
The cricketer used to spend his entire time roaming the streets of Chennai. While Srinivasan did not reveal which bike he had given to Dhoni, he did have a Yamaha FZ-1, which he also carried to the stadium. We believe the Yamaha FZ-1 was the motorcycle that Dhoni used to roam the city.
Dhoni joined the IPL in 2008 and has remained with the franchise since then except for a two-year IPL ban for CSK. The cricketer who hails from Ranchi, Jharkhand became popular as “Thala“Among the local crowd, which in Tamil translates as a leader.
During his long stay in Chennai, he uses a Yamaha FZ-1 for commuting. This is the naked version of the Yamaha R1 and is quite powerful. A litre-class superbike is used by Dhoni to come to the stadium for the practice session. It is powered by an in-line four-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 148 Bhp and 106 Nm.
Dhoni’s motorcycle collection
Dhoni loves motorcycles and has several motorcycles in his house in Jharkhand. Actually, he uses a special glass house to keep his motorcycle and vintage cars. The cricketer owns a range of used motorcycles like Kawasaki Ninja H2, Confederate Hellcat, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R, Harley-Davidson Fatboy and BSA Goldstar, Yamaha RD350 and many more.
Dhoni also likes vintage cars
Dhoni recently added a 1969 Ford Mustang to the garage, which is very rare in India. It is a muscle car and it has been featured in many movies in the past as well.
The 1969 Mustang shares space with the Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, which Dhoni had got sometime back. He was even seen driving the car on the roads of Ranchi when he initially bought the car. It doesn’t come out of the garage much these days.
In the same glass enclosure is a Pontiac Trans-Am, which he bought a while back. It is also a muscle car. MS Dhoni’s latest acquisition is a Pontiac Firebird Transam Classic car. The American Muscle Car appears to have been recently restored. Its actual age may be around 40 years. The car is powered by a 455 big-block V8 engine that powers the rear wheels. Peak power is around 325 bhp and the gearbox is a 4-speed unit.
