MS Dhoni’s love for big SUVs and bikes is not a hidden fact. The ex-captain of India’s cricket team has been often spotted driving around his beloved vehicles around his home in Ranchi, Jharkhand. So what did he do when the Indian team reached the city to play the ODI match against Australia? Well, MS Dhoni got into his Hummer as soon he landed in his hometown and even gave a lift to the young Indian cricketers Kedar Jhadhav and Rishabh Pant.

Mahi, as he is called by his teammates is fond of SUVs. All the vehicles he owns are SUVs, but the Hummer H2 gets the most attention on the roads and is also the most expensive SUV in Dhoni’s garage. Last time, the same Hummer H2 was in the news when the New Zealand team reached the city for a match against India, and the players were caught admiring Dhoni’s Hummer from the team bus.
This time around, Dhoni preferred driving around in his vehicle rather than taking the team bus. Kedar Jadhav and Rishabh Pant, the two youngsters in the Indian team also decided to get a real feel of the Hummer and hopped on with Dhoni. The video shows the Hummer H2 getting swamped by people from all around.
MS Dhoni loves his Hummer, and he prefers to getting picked up and dropped to the airport in the Hummer H2. Even around the town, Hummer is his first choice for commuting. In the past, he has been seen on the co-driver seat of the Hummer too.
Off all the vehicles Dhoni owns, the Hummer H2 is a fully imported vehicle that he privately imported from the USA. After the taxes, the total cost of the Hummer H2 comes to around Rs. 1 crore, which also makes this the most expensive vehicle in his garage. The other cars owned by Dhoni includes Mahindra Scorpio, Land Rover Discovery and Land Rover Freelander. The Mahindra Scorpio is a fully customised vehicle that was gifted to him Mahindra and got an open roof set-up and MS initials all around.
The Hummer H2 gets powered by a massive 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 petrol engine. It generates a maximum power of 393 Bhp and a peak torque of 563 Nm. It gets a 6-speed automatic transmission and returns around 5 km to a litre. But it sure gets all kind of attention on the road.
Dhoni is a big fan of motorcycles too. He owns a collection of vintage bikes including the BSA Goldstar, Norton Jubilee 250, and a couple of Yamaha RD350 and Yamaha RX100. He maintains and washes the Yamaha RD350 himself. Apart from the classic bikes, he owns a Kawasaki Ninja H2, Confederate Hellcat X132, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R, Harley Davidson Fatboy and Yamaha Thundercat. Dhoni also has a Yamaha FZ-1 in Chennai, which is the hometown of his IPL franchise Chennai Superkings. Dhoni has been spotted several times using the Yamaha’s litre class naked bike to reach the practise sessions when he’s in the city.
