Q. Whats is the difference between Normal Dominar and Dominar 400 UG?
  • Dominar 400 UG has more power and a new engine setup. It comes with a DOHC setup offering better refinement. The front telescopic forks have led way to USD forks to offer better handling and front end feel. The compression ratio has been bumped up as well so you will find the 2019 model more agile and quick.
  • Right now ug is only available... And there a small bump in the power figures... And the engine type is slightly diff
  • USD forks and 40 HP @ 8650 rpm , Simply I Can Say Like Suspension Hot Upgraded for Comfort and Extra Power

Q. Should I go with Dominor 400 or Suzuki Gixxer SF 250. If i am considering the build quality, Engine quality and a bit of touring but not more than 250km a day.
  • Japanese bikes are revolutionary machines. Their any product particularly. The built, ergonomics (very imp), the mechanicals - the most important for better performance are umatchable. Gxr250 is an amazing machine. Within the city 5 gears are fantastic, once higjway comes the 6th gear shows the potential of the engine. Easily cruising at 120 kmps with pillion.And the engine is patented.When you think of rx100, RD 350 you understand what amount of RnD they do to make superb products that last a lifetime. Think and decide
  • Dominor is the best. . Refined engine... And the service netowork is great..so if your on your trip.. and something goes wrong ( which would never happen) you can get it done irrespective of you being in any corner of India... And they do prioritize dominors over the other bajaj bikes so you would get your ride the same day.. and bajaj service stations are open all Sunday's too 😉
  • If your top priority is touring, go for dominar. Hardcore sportbike lovers can even neglect the discomfort of touring with a sportbike like i do. But if it is not mandatory for you to buy a sportbike, go for a naked tourer

Q. Which bike is better for long ride. Dominar 400 or Himalayan?
  • It's a tough decision, Even I went through this situation at the time of purchasing my Dominar.. Both are well known for touring purposes so which one would be better? 1. RE's are well know for rusting issues, Bajaj is way better in that case. I 've seen platina and boxer without rust even to this date, which is like 10 years or more.2. In terms of performance Himalayan give 25HP whereasDominar was 35HP now it's 40HP. 3. In terms of maintenance and reliabilityBajaj is cheaper and they have a better know how about fuel injection systems since they 've got KTM and its proven, whereas RE came up with Fuel injection systems for the first time where they themselves don't know what to do, how to fix, so in terms of service RE is on the expensive as well as very disappointing as far as I know. 4. Biggest Con I spotted when it comes to touring perspective is lack of tubeless tyres on RE's. It's not practical to remove the entire tube out and fix it in the middle of nowhere.Whereas Dominar comes equipped with a Alloy wheel and Radial Tubeless tyres which is tension free, we can fix it ourself if you got a portable tyre inflator and puncher repair kit which you can literally store under your seat if required. 5. Dominar gives you a better experience and confidence while cornering and riding through high range whereas Himalayan's center stand scrapes the road at times which robs your balance and ends up injuring yourself. 6. Brakes are way better on Dominar 400 when compared to Himalayan's braking unit which lacks bite. 7. We might feel our vehicle is quite under powered when it comes to highway cruising at tripple digit speed, where as you can cruise at 100+ without reving the engine really hard which makes the ride more enjoyable with less vibration, Dominar can go upto 165 kmph easily and we got the right braking unit equiped with Bosch ABS so that gives us a extra confidence to have some fun. 8. Cold start missing and starting issues is something what I 've noticed with Himalayan. I 've seen people struggling to start where as it's easy peasy on Dominar, combination of fuel injection and tripple spark technology is proven. Considering these as a whole I strongly believe Dominar is the best touring bike under 2.5 lakhs price bracket. Which is value for money and easy to maintain with less gizmo and unwanted features to attract people which literally ends up with complaints over a period of time which comes equipped with sophisticated technology and sensors where we need to spend more to fix post warranty period.
  • Both, Bajaj Dominar 400 and Royal Enfield Himalayan are brilliant tourers and boasts comfortable riding position for long distance travels. The upright riding posture with a slight forward stance on the Dominar offers comfortable ride quality coupled with even comfy seat, On the other hand, Himalayan makes long distance touring feel like a breeze. The pliant suspension, confident stride and long-haul friendly ergonomics will delight you while going for a long-ride. Now, if you are looking for a bike with outright performance and more features, then the Dominar 400 makes more sense, whereas, if you want to cruise at nominal speeds and want to enjoy the traits like comfortable riding then we would suggest you to opt for the Himalayan. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of comfort and compatibility. You may click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details.

  • I have Himalayan BS6. In the span of Two years I had to change 1) speedometer 2) Chain 3) Front Shocker oilseal 4) Handle bar Cone set and Now my bike is Down With HEAD AND VALVE PROBLEM! Can you imagine two years old bike with not more than 15000km Run worth 2.5 lac developed serious engine problem! I'd recommend not to waste 2.5/7 lac on buying garbage. Soon I'll shoot video in Your service centre about this problem and upload on different sites. Seriously regretting my decision to buy Himalayan. Will make others aware about the poor built quality of bike.

    Power Meets Elegance 

    I have been riding the Bajaj Dominar 400 for over a year now and it has been quite the powerhouse with a wholesome touring experience. Fitted with a 373.3 cc engine that pushes out 40 PS of power, this bike is built to rule the road. The bike accelerates smoothly with its mated 6 speed gearbox and the slipper clutch is a gift in heavy traffic providing a non tiring ride.One aspect I admire is the twin channel ABS that ensures great stopping power adding a layer of safety to each ride. The digital instrument cluster is crisp and adds to a modern riding experience.

    Heavy weight touring bike 

    I got 25 to 30 kmpl of mileage because it is a very powerful bike with very heavy weight but in the corners the weight feels highly. The suspenison of this bike is quite stiff but absorbent and the stability is outstanding and is nicely balanced bike and can go to a long trips without any problem. If you are a touring person then bike is excellent choice because the weight is heavy which is good for highway and touring but the city use is not good with this bike.

    shine on the streets 

    The Bajaj Dominar 400 is a popular bike in my colony and i owned it . It claims me a mileage of 27 kmpl which is not that much which my brother expectrd from it . Talking about the safety dual-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is a standard feature. It lacks additional safety features like airbags or traction control that might be found in some bigger bikes . It gives you many options in colours which best suites your style (Vine Black, Aurora Green) .

    a purchase that is worthwhile  

    In more than different colours and features, the Jawa Perak is a modern bike for newer generation. It is an amazing bike model with services at one’s feet. It is easy to operate and even easier to operate and drive. With attractive exterior built and comfortable seats, it is quite nicely suited for both the driver and the passenger at the back. The showroom offers a very obvious and well deserving price for this model and according to me its a great investment. The other functionalities are top notch and smooth.

    Perak Majesty, Bobber Heritage. 

    I ride my Jawa Perak for More distant than Clearly a Tour. It's drinking the black ritual sportfisherman and letting Perak loose. This motorcycle isn't exclusively for traveling . It all comes down to carrying it out with the special, upsetting fetish of the Perak series. Everyride demonstrates Jawa's devotion to give a disparate riding experience because of the Perak's eye- catching appearance and important interpretation. It's not Clearly a bike. It reflects a rider's love of ritual sedans and the black, icing that every path is met with the presence and faculty for which the Perak is famed.

I have a Pulsar 220 dts-i 2009 model. Still running like a beast. I am on budget, I couldn't find any other bikes under 3 lakhs which could impress me since pulsar 220 back in 2009. Well, i was impressed with 200 but then, the bookings closed for 200 and 220 had started. So... I took a test drive today and was simply mind blown away with the initial pick up and the power (Totally missing in RE for this age and time). I loved everything riding this Legendary bike to be. Yes, there are some cons. Well, to start with, ground clearance is quiet low 160mm I believe, unless you are a careful rider, this is not going to be a right choice for off road activites. Second, yes, you guessed it right. 'The Pillion seat.' Indian mentality asks for a pillion on a bobber but hey there are many engineers out there who could take a challenge or two thrown at them but then again, not recommended as the RTO registers it as 'Single Seat Vehicle.' My GF is the only person who I wish this feature was available for but I still got pulsar with a back seat ;). Nonetheless, I am going to have a wonderful time with this beast. I have tried to give as much information as possible below, do let me know if you need any more information. Yes, I booked the vehicle and the delivery is going to be in the month of September to the least :(. To add to all this, Corona has taken most of our precious time away. Stay safe, stay Clean!

    Bike continuously 

    After 6 months of booking, i got my perak. The bike got an appealing look. I was attracted with its bobber style. I have bought it for daily commuting. I am the first owner of perak in j&k. Acceleration and performance wise its pretty good. O-100 in just about 8 seconds. Dual channel abs totally helps in controlling the bike when you are riding at more than 100 kmph. I am riding this bike continuously from the past 20 days and thats the pros i felt about this bike. Now talking about the cons. First thing first, the odometer position is totally way forward, while riding, the rider cannot see the down side of the odometer as its face is way forward. Next thing, suspensions are poor, if you are riding at more than 50kmph, it cannot protect you from even small potholes, you will feel super uncomfortable. At even 25kmph, you cannot run over a speed breaker, as the bike will hit the ground due to low ground clearance. Its a super hard bike with poor suspension. Next thing, the horn is very bad as compared to its look. Even activa scooter has better horn than perak. Another thing, the mileage i am getting is about 20-21 kmpl while company claims it to be 35 kmpl and thats too low. Last thing, the side stand is small and it cannot stand on off-road surface as it has a risk to fall down.Final words, its a small ride city bike, that can only be ridden on flat and clean road with no bumps at all (which is not possible on indian roads). So buy only if you are super comfortable in accepting big shocks on small pits for spending around 2.5 lacs on a jawa bobber bike.

    Caused due 

    The bike is great to look at from a distance.But once you approach the bike, You find a lot of wires, Panel gaps and body work asymmetry.The bike is extremely fun to drive in the city, While not disappointing on the highway.The seating position, Although semi-sport, Is very comfortable and not at all stressful for upto 1.5hrs of driving.The suspension was stiff when i got the bike, But got really great at damping after sometime.I never had issues with the ground clearance, Even when i took the guy off-road.I have deep scratches on the right exhaust and left stand, Caused due to leaning during a corner.The bike handles like a charm even at high speeds(if you have the balls).Although i've been tempted to remove the fuse of the abs for more bite, The fact that i've been saved multiple times because of it has prevented me from doing that.Overall the bike is pretty good, And given the fact that not everybody is going to spend 2+ lakhs on a bike with only 1 seat makes it all the more unique and special.I love my perak (bruce).

    Worst bike 

    Worst bike i ever used.I have used to bought this bike around 18 month only yesterday it\'s forth service has been done and there is a lots of issues with the build quality as well as the engine.The body parts like the cover of the chain then the mudguard holder as always the many bolt and nuts are automatically coming out or broking.Today morning i went to the market and the bike engine automatically stopped it is unable to make start around 3.30 hour has been gone till now the bike haven\'t started yet.I am facing this engine problem around 6 or 7 month earlier then also the problem is not solving.It is a huge with a bike then also i have to push this bike towards my home which is around 3 km from the market it is very difficult to handle this type of problem having a bike within 2 years not the complete 2 years.So my suggestion is don\'t take this bike or any other segment of this bike company.

    I am owner of jawa perak unfortunately my experince was not good.Lets talk about some good and bad things about jawa perak bad thing.Engine is not refined its sound like like tractor and service center are also not good average to too low like in city 17 and highways 23.Not made for indian roads specially villages with too many breakers because of ground clearnceheating issue is also a reason i know higher cc bikes heat alot but this bike heat double than royal enfield so you have to wear a gear while driving all parts are damm to costly and no local macenic can repair your bike lets talk about some good things power delivery is just f*****g awesome just like any sports bike.Looks are damm god every single person look back and ask for brand due to low ground clearnce stable on highways and no viberations like re.Speedometer is also not good but it depends on person to person choice.
