Q. Which bike to choose, Dominar 400 or 390 Adventure?
  • Selecting between the Bajaj Dominar 400 and KTM 390 Adventure would depend on certain factors such as your budget, brand preference, usage of the bike, features required, etc. The 390 Adventure is a nice bike, but it’s not the nicest of its kind KTM could have built us. There are a few niggles that can be fixed, however, there’s no singular aspect to the 390 Adventure that makes it sacred. Also, the asking price doesn't make it a value-for-money option. On the other hand, with a powerful engine, comfortable ergonomics, and a wide service network-- the Bajaj Dominar 400 is an equally enticing option if you plan on exploring the vast expanse of the country. Moreover, Bajaj has launched the 2021 Dominar 400 in India. The new Bajaj Dominar 400 gets a host of touring accessories standard from the factory as part of the update. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.

  • If u are an enthusiastic rider and wants to feel the power and dominate the roads, then you should definitely go the dominar, it has a better power delivery, slipper clutch, dual channel abs and it's instrument console is packed with a lot of information.Where as if u are interested in vintage bikes and you prefer slow calm rides, then go for the Java.Personally, I prefer Dominar, I'm using it since 4 months and I'm fully satisfied with the bike performance

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

User Reviews of Comparison

  • Bajaj Dominar 400
  • KTM 390 Adventure
  • Value for money. Powerful cruiser and a tourer. I have a 2022 model, and it is so convenient to have all the required accessories in stock. I have completed 1500kms till now on this bike, and I really enjoy riding on this. The price for the power that you get is really economic. I believe in the future also this bike would hold its demand if Bajaj works on its weight, connectivity, vibrations, and power to weight ratio. The lakh rupees gap to go for a KTM adventure is one aspect. The other is the seat height. I am 180cms, and I was tiptoeing on the adventure. Dominar's lower seat height makes me feel planted and more in control.

  • It is my first motorcycle, I have not ridden a motorcycle before in my life, my previous experience is with a small car and a mountain bike. I started three months ago, now I do routes of 40 minutes to an hour, in the city and on the highway, my maximum speed based on my little experience has been 150 km / h maximum, both during the day, night or light rains and storms, at the moment very noble very docile when you control your clutch and throttle well. In short, YES IT IS A GOOD MOTORCYCLE FOR BEGINNERS, it depends on your motivation to develop your skills and ride, in my case I can tell you that the best thing is to hit the road.

  • Dominar 400 ug is great bike from bajaj i use this bike on daily basis as well as on long jurney/ tour.. i love the performance n handling of this bike especially the high speed stability of this bike the crusing speed of this bike around 90 ti 130km. Talkin about mileage i get around 26 to 28 in city & 38 to 42 on highway or long tour..The only thing i dislike of this is center/ main stand since its a sports tourer it must have one... the USD front fork n soft rear suspension offer great comfort n ride quality 👌 the up right sitting position of this bike is great for daily usge as well fr weekends or long rides...

  • I rate my bike because I am in love with it..even though it weighs 182 kg it handles the twisties sort of nicely..the ride comfort is awesome,the 10led headlight offers best in class illumination..let me tell you one thing,if you want a bike between the high on track duke 390 and the simple bullet 500 the best choice is the dominar.but there are things which are lacking like the gear indicator and stuff.p.s:my bike is bs4 and it's in canyon red

  • The bajaj dominar i own since 2018 april blue colour one.Perfect for city ride and touring also bit of off-roading.Much comfortable in all road sometimes a bit stiff the front one.If you have the 2020 edition this complain also not there.I use to get descent mileage about 30 to 35 and in city 28 kmpl.Perfect touring bike with the affordable price and a power cruiser.

  • This is a lot of bike for the money! the electronics package is fantastic, The motor far exceeds expectations, And it's very comfortable.I'm getting 78 mpg at moderate speed and just a little under at sport pace.My only letdown has been the poor performance of the quick shifter, Which i hope can be fixed with software next spring.
