Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I'm a beginner, Which bike is the best for me XPulse 200, Dominar 250, Can you help?
  • Being a beginner doesnt matter much if you ask me. But I will say the XPulse200 will be easier to handle and throw around. But, the ride and ergonomics of both these vehicles are entirely different and I suggest you test ride them both and make your decision.
  • Yes rightly said I have Xpulse it is very light , much affordable infact the only affordable lightest 200 bike with is offroading tourer in entire world
  • Hi im 39 about 5 11 tall and im a beginner which bike is better for me in 150cc range
Q. Which bike to buy Dominar 250, Svartpilen 250 or 250 Duke for touring and daily commute?
  • But doesn't the weight and turning radius for dominar makes its handling difficult in city and for daily commute. Traffic manoeuvring is also difficult. So if someone does commute mostly and touring occasionally, the other two are more suitable
  • Ofcourse svartpilen..
  • Svartpilen250
Q. Which bike has a better break power, Dominar 250 or Gixxer 250?
  • Both Suzuki Gixxer 250 and Bajaj Dominar 250 are good bike. However, the baby Dominar is the one that offers better braking performance between the two. In our tests, the Dominar 400 was a ferocious braker. It’s got the smaller 300mm front disc with a radial caliper and a 230mm rear disc. But surprisingly, even with all its weight, it managed incredibly short braking distances -- just 31.53 metres from 80kmph to a standstill and 18.50 metres from 60kmph. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort. You may click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details.

  • Actually my bike is still new though I am receiving a mileage around 30kmpl. Hope it will improve after one or two service. Although I am really interested with this mileage as I am always driving it in low gears in local market areas with lots of clutch and brakes.

    Partha Basak few weeks ago
  • real competitor...its a 250 cc..low heat from engines..good power and torque...great styling( but look like younger 150cc).. track and touring capacity..but if you pardon Suzuki for the wind shield..

    Jo few weeks ago
  • One of the best 250cc bike, Riding position is very comfortable but odd for pillon.Can easily touch 100kmph in less than 8 seconds and we can drive with ease.Rear break will work less effectively.

    Chandu Goud few weeks ago
