So, is this Dominar 250 perfect for you? Well, we are here to help you decide the best.
Also, we will perceive what progressions the young Dominar is hoping to endeavor. A similar accomplishment as its senior sibling, the sport-touring motorbike has numerous similitudes with Dominar 400.
Let watch the new Bajaj model closely.
Specification: The 250 model has a bunch of new features, which pushes for more power and a popular sport looking commuter. The motorcycle has a single-cylinder 4-stroke liquid-col twin-spark 248.77cc engine, which produces a raw power of 27PS at 8,500rpm. The peak torque is 23.5Nm at 6,500rpm, with a fuel capacity of 13L.
It professes a top speed of 132Kmph with a naked sportbike body. It gets a self-start technology coped with 6-speed manual gearbox and BS6 emission.
Features: The Dominor 250 comes with a dual-channel ABS and instrumental console unit and some additional features like pass switch, clock twin Barrel-Exhaust. The model has a step-up seat at the rear with a footrest.
The digital-console has a speedometer, trip meter, and Odometer in it. The bike also comes with a LED taillight and a fuel gauge.
Suspension: Beam type perimeter frame has been built around the frame with a telescopic 37mm USD fork at the front suspension. The multi-step adjustable mono-shock has been provided at the rear suspension with a 110mm wheel spoke.
The sports bike has graphics on its body, similar to its sibling Dominar 400. It gets 17-inch tubeless tires along with a 300mm front disc and 230mm of rear disk brake.
Dimension: The length of a motorbike is 2156mm, with a width of 836mm and height 1112mm. The ground clearance is at 157mm with a kerb weight of 180Kg.
Electricals: Similar to its sibling 400, Bajaj Dominar 250 has an LED headlight and tail lamp. You also get an LED signal lamp with a battery capacity of 12 V, 8 Ah. There is a fuel indicator to remind you of filling your bike tank while riding.
Comparison between Bajaj Dominar 250 and Dominar 400
Design: Both bikes look identical in terms of design. If we park both of them side by side, it will be difficult to find out which one is 250 or 400.
Dimension: The height, the width, the wheelbase is the same 1453mm along with 13L fuel tank capacity.
Weight: The Dominar 250 is 4Kgs lighter than Dominar 400 weighing 180Kg compared to its elder sibling, which is 184Kg.
Suspension: A bean type perimeter frame, which forms a shady structure that offers superb stability, balance, and rigidity. Dominar 250 doesn’t get the aluminum swingarm. Instead, we get a box-section swingarm in the 250 models.
The Bajaj 400 range gets chunky 43mm USD forks, whereas Dominar 250 we get 37mm USD forks. Therefore front end feel might not be as sure-footed or as confident inspiring for the rider.
Brakes and tires: We get a 320mm massive front disc as compared to Dominar 250, which gets 300mm. At the back, both the bikes get 230mm rear-disc. There are radial tires at both ends of Dominar 400; however, for 250 range, there is a regular Euro grip tire.
Gear Indicator: The digital console is similar to its elder sibling, but we don’t get the gear- indicator in Dominar 250, which is available in 400.
Engine: The Dominar 250 comes with twin spark technology, whereas 400 gets triple spark technology. Therefore we get 27% faster combustion compared to twin spark. Thus, you get more power and a better fuel economy in Dominar 400.
Usage: If you are planning only for city touring, then I would suggest Dominar 250 is the best option.
However, both the bikes are the best as per their quality and specification. If your budget is a little tight, then you can go for Dominar 400 as it will cost you Rs. 1,90,000 (ex-showroom) which is Rs. 30,000 more than the 250 version. Also, if you are like long ridings or off-roading travel, then Dominar 250 is the best choice for you as it has a lot of stability for daily use. The motorcycle is light-weight around 180 Kg; therefore, you can expect better performance on road.
