Whether you talk about his cucumber-cool temperament on the field even when his team is struggling or his fascinating hairdos that that make our jaws drop, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is undoubtedly the coolest player the Indian cricket team has ever had.
As Mahi turns 36, let us take a look at what makes him cool off-the-field. Yes, you are right! His bike collection! Dhoni’s love for two-wheeled beasts is not unknown to anyone, and Captain Cool is often seen cruising through the streets of his hometown Ranchi on one of his rides. Here is a list of 7 mean machines from MSD’s motorbike collection. Take a look.
#1. Kawasaki Ninja H2
One of Mahi’s most prized possession is his Kawasaki Ninja H2, which he added to his collection just two years back. At the time, H2 was the fastest bike in the country, so Mahi had to have it. The cricketer shared his excitement with his fans on Twitter, sharing an image of the beast with the caption, “Finally the wait is over but another couple of months before I can take her on her first ride.”

#2. Confederate Hellcat X132
The jet black Confederate Hellcat X132 is perhaps the most exciting bike MSD owns. With a Confederate-patented 5-speed close ratio transmission system, 132 break horsepower, 150-foot pounds torque and carbon fiber wheels, this devil embody power and style.

#3. Harley Davidson Fatboy
Your bike collection is merely a cluster of random bikes unless you own a Harley-Davidson. When Dhoni wanted to buy a bike from the world’s most renowned muscle bike manufacturer, he opted for the ultra-stylish Fatboy, the simplest model of which is priced at INR 16,35,000.

#4. Ducati 1098
This is another bike in Mahi’s collection which will make you drool. This beast has 160 horse power and kisses the speed of 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. Its top speed is about 173.3 mph, but we guess we wouldn’t be seeing Dhoni reaching the speed in the street of Ranchi.

Still close to the cricketer's heart is his Rajdoot, the first bike he ever bought! The cricketer, who often shares his latest beasts with his fans on social media, did not shy away from tweeting a picture of his rusty Rajdoot, which he bought for INR 4,500. Recently, Mahi took up a project to bring the bike to its glory of the old days.

#7. Yamaha YZF600R
Yamaha YZF600R, better known among bike enthusiasts as Thundercat is another name we couldn’t miss to mention on our list. Among the most popular tourer bikes of its time, it also caught the attention of Dhoni, and the cricketer couldn’t resist adding it to his collection.
