    Q. KTM DUKE 250 VS BAJAJ DOMINAR 400, Which is best and reliable long lasting machine. Only for long ride and touring purposes.
    • Dominar is the best, to keep it short. To explain it, I have rode KTM Duke 390 for quite a long rides and I own Dominar. The main difference is that Dominar during the long rides and tours, gives you immense confidence because of the stability even at 130+ kmph. Though Duke has a lot of power and acceleration because of the light weighted body and torque, it doesn't give you the same confidence of stability just like the Dominar. And I clocked a trip of 1343 km in 3 days during which, the bike (Dominar) cruised smoothly even on the worst roads, but never gave a trouble, not even for a second.
    • Dominar is having a very nice machine which doesn't heat much from the Duke 250 and it will even help you for long ride because the engine doesn't gets heated too much and it is little bit much comfort from the Duke 250 in matter of seat
    • Then you opt for Bajaj 2019 Dominar 400. This bike is segmented as cruising bike and KTM Duke 250 is non-abs and segmented in sporting bike. You have your clear cut answer

    Q. Which bike is best among dominar 400 ,duke 250 and himalayan for 70% city and 30% highway usage?
    • As per your requirements, all these bikes are capable enough and perform well too. If we talk about KTM 250 Duke, it is probably the most un-KTMish KTM of them all, the 250 Duke with its relaxed motor and comfy suspension is a great choice for those who arenโ€™t looking to set lap records but want something quick and convenient for everyday use. It is light in weight, feature-loaded and easy to handle too. On the other hand, Dominar 400 have good bulky looks, healthy performance, competent underpinnings and a host of features. All for just Rs 1.94 lakh. If youโ€™re looking for the best bang for your buck, nothing eclipses the Dominar 400 in the sub-2 lakh rupee price bracket. If we talk about Royal Enfield Himalayan, it was the motorcycle that kick-started the affordable adventure touring genre in India in 2016. Despite the arrival of new rivals, it continues to outshine them as an all-rounder. RE has ironed out the majority of the issues that plagued the first-gen motorcycle, but brakes still remain an Achilles heel. Though it is not the most powerful bike at its price or segment, it the most comfortable bike among these three and has great capabilities for city commutes, highway long rides and a bit off-roading too. You may compare all these bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
    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.
    • If you are looking for a bike with better acceleration, ruthless performance, better features and more sporty trail, you can go for the KTM 390. If the comfort is your main preference with a decent amount of power and great suspension setup for long tours you may opt Dominar 400. The KTM has been provided with riding modes with TFT display being one of the major features. The Dominar 400 gets features which totally justify the worth the bike as well.However, we would suggest you take a test ride of both the bikes regarding the comfort, features and ride quality.Click here for the dealership: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers
    • 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
