A few days ago, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was spotted on a TVS Apache RR310. The former cricketer who owns several superbikes and a list of vintage motorcycles in his home city – Jharkhand recently took the delivery of a brand-new TVS Ronin. Vimal Sumbly, head of TVS two-wheelers in India, personally handed the keys to the Ronin to Dhoni.
The TVS Ronin is the flagship street motorcycle from the Indian brand. It came to the Indian market last year and attracted many people due to the motorcycle’s looks. It gets powered by a 225.9cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine that produces a maximum power of 20 Bhp at 7,750 rpm and a peak torque output of 19.93 Nm at 3,750 rpm. The bike comes with a 5-speed gearbox that gets a slip-and-assist function.
The Ronin gets a long list of features as well. The feature list includes all-LED lighting, a digital instrument cluster with adjustable brightness and two ABS modes as well. The bike comes with a silent starter and Bluetooth connectivity for navigation. There is more like Glide Through Tech and adjustable levers for the brake and clutch.
The suspension of the TVS Ronin is 41mm USD forks in the front from Showa. The rear gets a monoshock. The bike also comes with a 300 mm disc brake at the front and a 240 mm monoshock at the rear.
This is the second motorcycle from TVS Motors in Dhoni’s garage after the Apache RR310. Just like Dhoni was spotted on the Apache, we guess we will soon spot him on the Ronin as well.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni has a mega garage made out of glass that houses all his motorcycles. While the exact number of motorcycles stationed in his garage remains unknown, he reportedly owns more than 150 motorcycles including his collection of old bikes.
Hardik Pandya, who was in Ranchi recently to play a cricket game posted a picture with Dhoni on a BMW R71 complete with a sidecar. Dhoni also owns a few units of Yamaha RD350, which he claims to be his favourite bike. Other two-strokes in his garage include the likes of Yamaha RX100, Suzuki Shogun, vintage motorcycles from Norton, Jawa and BSA, and many more.
Besides motorcycles from the previous era, Dhoni also owns a few modern motorcycles like Kawasaki Ninja H2, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R, Harley Davidson Fat Boy and the ultra-rare Confederate X132 Hellcat.
The former cricketer is often spotted on the roads while riding his motorcycle from a cricket practice session to home. He seldom uses four-wheelers, especially when he is alone but owns a slew of rare cars including a Hummer H2 and Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat.
