The video shows the iconic cricketer wearing his army uniform and kickstarting his yellow-colored two-stroke Yamaha RD350 motorcycle. It starts with Dhoni smiling at the camera and starting his bike. After starting the bike, he then goes to the side and starts wearing his safety gear. The video was shot at his farmhouse, where he has also been seen driving tractors.

In another video shared on Instagram by msdhoni.zealot, Dhoni was seen riding the same Yamaha RD350. The cricketer in this particular video was seen riding the bike on the roads of Ranchi, Jharkhand, which is his hometown. He was spotted in the middle of the road and was followed to his house, where he was seen honking at the door of his mansion. There are many such videos of Dhoni driving his old and new motorcycles in and out of his mansion. These videos show that Dhoni is not just a collector of these old iconic bikes; rather, he is a true motorcycle enthusiast who loves riding them.

The exact model year of Dhoni’s RD 350 cannot be determined, but it was the one that was sold under the Yamaha Rajdoot 350 brand name in India during the 1970s and 1980s. It was one of the most popular high-end bikes in the country. It came powered by a 350cc twin-cylinder two-stroke motor that produced approximately 28 Bhp in Low Torque trim and 31 Bhp in high torque trim. It was one of the first choices of speed enthusiasts in the country. However, its poor fuel efficiency compared to 100cc bikes led to low sales, and the bike went out of production in 1989.

Yes, it may seem like a lot, but indeed the former Indian cricket team captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, owns a massive collection of over 150 motorcycles. A few leaked pictures from his mansion revealed that he keeps all of his motorcycles in a massive glass garage. Just a few months ago, another ace cricketer from Team India, Hardik Pandya, who was in Ranchi for a cricket match, shared a photo of himself and Dhoni riding in a sidecar on a BMW R71.

As mentioned above, Dhoni owns a few different models of Yamaha RD350 motorcycles, which he describes as his favorite model. The Yamaha RX100, Suzuki Shogun, and antique bikes from Norton, Jawa, and BSA are just a few of the other two-strokes he has in his glass garage. Additionally, Dhoni also owns a few modern motorcycles like the Kawasaki Ninja H2, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R, Harley Davidson Fat Boy, and the ultra-rare Confederate X132 Hellcat.
