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.

  • Dominaar
Q. Do both the bikes have heating issues ? If yes, then which one is the worst ? (Himalyan and Dominar)
  • Both bikes are good enough. we can't say their engine heating an issue as being a bigger capacity single-cylinder engine, they exert some heat and it is normal. You may observe similar heat in both bikes if you are riding the bike with shots and riding in heavy traffic. However, if you wear jeans, you hardly feel any heat and neither it bother the rider. Do take a test ride for better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
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 😉
  • You can Blindly Go for Dominor 400 , Whenever You Wants You Can do Hyper Riding and You Can Cruise in 60 - 70 in 6Th Gear
