It is widely known that MS Dhoni has a great passion for cars and motorcycles, often spotted driving his prized possessions around his hometown of Ranchi, Jharkhand. With a dedicated garage for his extensive collection, the retired Indian cricket team captain has recently acquired a Jawa 42 Bobber, with a bespoke paint job, to add to his collection. The Jawa 42 Bobber is priced at ₹2.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
MS Dhoni’s Jawa 42 Bobber boasts a unique jade/bottle green paint scheme highlighted with golden pinstripes stretched across the fuel tank, side panels, front and rear mudguards. The motorcycle also features a customized seat, and its single-seater design is what sets it apart and makes it especially noteworthy in its class.
The 42 Bobber is powered by a 334 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with 29.5 bhp power and 32.74 Nm peak torque. It comes with a 6-speed gearbox, 35mm telescopic front forks and gas-filled monoshock at the rear with a 7-step adjustable preload.
The bike has a 280 mm front single disc and 240 mm disc at the rear for braking performance, along with dual-channel ABS as standard. The 42 Bobber sits on 100/90 18-inch front and 140/70 17-inch rear wheels.

In an Instagram video uploaded by ‘ms.dhoni.sr07’, we could see several old motorcycles owned by Dhoni parked in a closed shed. The two-storey collection of vehicles had a collection of motorcycles parked on the upper floor and a few motorcycles and cars parked on the ground floor.
The video began with a glimpse of a fully-faired Yamaha sports bike, which appeared to be an old-generation Yamaha YZF-R6. The video progressed with glimpses of other two-stroke motorcycles from brands like Yamaha, Yezdi, Jawa, BSA, and Norton. The collection also showed a few glimpses of limited-edition two-stroke motorcycles from BMW, along with older-generation motorcycles from recent decades, like Yamaha RD350 and Royal Enfield Bullet.
On the ground floor, additional motorcycles, like Yamaha RD350 and Suzuki Intruder M1800R, were also seen. The video also showed a few of the cars owned by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, including the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the fully-customized Land Rover Defender, and the newly-purchased Kia EV6 GT.
In addition to the previously mentioned cars and motorcycles, Dhoni has a collection of other motorcycles that includes the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R, Kawasaki Ninja H2, Harley Davidson Fat Boy, Ducati 1098, and the exclusive Confederate X132 Hellcat. As the brand ambassador for TVS, he also owns a couple of sports bikes from the brand, specifically the Apache RR 310 and Ronin.
