    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. Which bike to buy Dominar 250, Svartpilen 250 or 250 Duke for touring and daily commute?
    • All these bikes have the same engine bt in Dominar 250, it has been reworked to produce 27PS power at 8500rpm and 23.5Nm of peak torque at 6500rpm. For the city, commutes, Svartpilen 250 nad 250 Duke would be more fun to ride but the Dominar 250 would be suitable for both city commutes as well as for highways cruising. Though it delivers a bit less power as compared to other too but it offers more comfortable ride quality. Also, it is more value for the money too. You may compare all these bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride before the final call. Check out authorised dealership details.
    • 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
    Q. I'm confused whether to Buy Dominar 250 or Pulsar RS 200, I will be using it for Daily commute in city and occasional mild touring.
    • Both bikes are good enough. But as per your requirements, Dominar 250 would be a better pick. It has better feature list and better power too. It offers a comfortable ride for the city as well as on the highway. Do take a test ride for better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.You may compare both the bikes also
    Q. I heard Dominar 250 will have similar features as Dominar 400, only difference wiil be small back tyres 130 instead of 150 & swingarm will get swapped. So need expert advice, what's the difference will see in bike due to these two features. I mean vibration or handling, etc wise. Also hope Bajaj keeps weight below 160KG.
    • In terms of looking, both bikes look similar. But there are some differences like while the bigger Dominar 400 uses a fat 43mm USD fork at the front, the baby Domi is equipped with a 37mm USD fork (135mm of travel remains the same). While the rear disc remains the same (320mm), the Dominar 250 uses a smaller 300mm disc at the front instead of a 320mm disc as seen on the Dominar 400. Another major difference between the two is the swingarm. The Dominar 250 comes with a box-section swingarm instead of an aluminum unit on the flagship motorcycle. To keep costs in check, the Dominar 250 rides on slightly slimmer 100/80 at the front and 130/70 tubeless tyres instead of radials seen on the bigger version. All these changes will result in quite a significant difference in terms of performance and mileage. If we talk about its weight, it is 180 kg which is a bit heavy for a 250cc bike. So, you can expect similar ride quality and a bit better handling in Dominar 250. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts.Check out authorised dealership details.
