MS Dhoni and his love for bikes are known to all. However, the Bollywood actor John Abraham, who is a fitness enthusiast and has a huge collection of automobiles, has come forward with special praises for Dhoni’s bike riding.  The actor is the brand ambassador of MotoGP in India and aims to start a motorcycle academy for kids.

With the view of the increasing popularity of MotoGP in India, Eurosport announced John Abraham as the championship’s India ambassador. John is a vehicle fanatic and is often in talks about his collection of bikes and cars. Cricketer MS Dhoni has also expressed his passion for bikes always and it goes on to intrigue his fans and followers. Thus when asked who would win between a John and Mahi race, the actor was all sure and termed that the wicketkeeper-batter would definitely win the race.

“He [Dhoni] would win it. He is very brave. He is a sportsman, I am an actor. He is a very good rider, I must tell you,” John asserted as reported by mid-day. Both Dhoni and John are renowned for their inclination towards bikes. Previously, when Dhoni had long hair, parallels were drawn between him and the actor regarding their hairstyle as well.

MS Dhoni’s love saga with the bikes

Dhoni has always lived a private life and has enjoyed being in his own cocoon. However, he has never shied away from putting forward the love he holds for bike riding. The cricketer has a vast collection of bikes at his farmhouse in Ranchi and that pretty much exemplifies his interest in bikes. He is even often seen cleaning the bikes on his own. Dhoni’s wife often shares certain glimpses of the player taking a small ride at his farmhouse with their daughter Ziva as well.

Dhoni will be now seen back in cricketing action when the second phase of the IPL resumes in the UAE. Chennai Super Kings will battle it out against their arch-rivals Mumbai Indians on September 19. CSK had looked dominating in the first leg of the IPL and would be keen to take the momentum further as the tournament starts.
