Q. Which one will be the better option out of Dominar 400 and KTM 390 in terms of overall performance, design and comfort? Please help.
  • Hi,Ktm is any better as the bike is light weight and has a better build quality but the bike has a hard seat and engine get heated more than dominar. So if you have a bigger budget go with ktm however dominar is heavy but best value for money bike with just 3 PS less power than ktm
  • KTM is lighter. performance and handling is better. it has better display. But Dominar is value for money. reliable. maintenance will not hit
  • Performance KTM 390 though now they use the same platform for 2019 variant in Dominaar too.. comfortable is Dominaar

Q. Which bike gives better performance and top speed Dominor 2019 or Duke 390?
  • Dominar offers good performance. But in comparison to Duke, you might find the Dominar's power delivery a bit more linear. Simple terms, Dominar can do 80-85 % of what a Duke 390 can do at a lower cost. You won't regret buying Dominar for sure.
  • Both bikes are good in performance and top speed. Diff. Only Dominar 2019 is heavy weight bike..
  • Duke 390

Q. Which bike should be owned between Bajaj 2019 Dominar 400 and KTM Duke 390?
  • Accelaration and top speed is more in ktm's rather than bajaj but ktm's re very petite bikes. If you are a bulky guy then go for dominar and if you are petite and very slim go for ktm. Ktm has some extra features such as tft dispaly which is very awesome . now duke 390 even comes with quickshifter(i doubt i would be as good as premium bikes) but still its a handy feature ! New colour scheme is dope.On the other hand, dominar has exact same engine of duke 390 in a slightly bigger body. So if you like big bikes you can go for dominar. If you go for dominar you will always get some attention from people as you don't see many dominars. But fit and finish of dominar is not as good as ktm.If you keep r3 and ninja 300 at a score of 5/5 then ktm duke 390 is 4.6/5 and dominar is at 4.3/5 Hope it helps !
  • It depends upon person riding it, it was going to be my first superbike so I tried both. I tried Dominar 400 ABS first it was like I was feeling it's power and I was overtaking every vehicle came into my way then I tried Duke 390 It was bit hard for me to control the power of that bike in the beginning. So, I went for Dominar 400 ABS as I was able to control it.

User Reviews of Comparison

  • Bajaj Dominar 400
  • KTM 390 Duke
  • 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

    Hanok Deleep few weeks ago
  • 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.

Dominar 400 User Reviews
  • First of all let me start with how smooth the bs6 390 engine is. It's super smooth compared to bs4 and an absolute heaven when compared to bs3. The underbelly exhaust took care of the heating problem pretty well. It's only your left foot that will get somewhat toasty that too in heavy traffic and your not moving. And with quickshifter I believe there's a common problem with the throttle regulator, to be frank it doesn't work that good🤦. Mileage shouldn't be your criteria if you are planning for 390, for me it gives about 26 to 28 on highway and 22ish in the city. The new colour scheme is a killer grey and black and white is good too.

    Predator Achal few weeks ago
  • Ktm duke 390 is the best bike in the given amount.As its good for city commutes, Its good for touring, Its good when the performance is demanded, And when it comes to looks it still the best.And the safety feature and technology used is so advanced for the price band they are offered in.So its the best bike in 3 lakh rupees.
