Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a total auto enthusiast, and the Indian cricketing great never misses an opportunity to try his hand at anything and everything that has wheels and an engine in it. Recently, Dhoni was spotted driving a Road Roller. No, we’re not joking. There’s a video that shows the former Indian skipper driving a road roller up and down a cricket pitch. Road rollers are a common sight on cricket grounds, where they’re used to flatten and smoothen out imperfections on the cricket pitch. Here, check out the video with Dhoni driving a road roller.
One Man, Different Roles 😇💙

This is not the first time that Dhoni has been spotted driving something unusual. When India was touring the African country of Zimbabwe a few years ago, Dhoni was spotted riding a badass police bike. The bike in question was a massive Kawasaki Concours 14, a sports tourer version of the ZX14R that Dhoni has owned in the past. The Concours makes 156 Bhp-140 Nm, and uses the same 1,352 cc inline-four cylinder engine of the ZX14R but in a detuned state. The lower outputs are aimed at comfortable sports touring. The Zimbabwean cops who lent their bike to Dhoni for a spin seems more than happy to see the Indian skipper on their ride.
Recently, the cricketer acquired a 1 ton Nissan pick up truck, expertly resto-modded. This pick up truck joins other automotive legends in Dhoni’s garage that includes a smattering of Yamaha RD350 motorcycles and even a Hummer. The cricketer even has a museum dedicated to his motorcycles. Now, that’s taking automotive passion to the next level. Dhoni’s turning out to be India’s very own ‘Jay Leno’.
While a lot of Indian cricketers have expensive, luxurious and sporty cars, Dhoni’s garage really stands out thanks to the sheer variety that it has. He owns one of the fastest production motorcycles – the fearsome Kawasaki Ninja H2. He was recently spotted taking a spin on the Ninja H2, which is owned by a handful of Indians. The Ninja H2, when Dhoni bought it in 2015, commanded an ex-showroom price close to Rs. 30 lakh.
Among other things, Dhoni also owns India’s FASTEST Jeep, the Grand Cherokee TrackHawk, which he acquired sometime last year. The Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk is powered by a 6.4 liter, V8 supercharged petrol engine that puts out mammoth power and torque outputs of 707 Bhp and 875 Nm. Priced at Rs. 1.6 crore, it also happens to be the most expensive Jeep in India. Dhoni got his as a direct import.
