    Q. Can you suggest which bike to buy, I am confused between Dominar 400 and Interceptor 650?
    • Dominor is a plastic bike but interceptor full metal. for ex 5 years back pulsar 220 now not gives same power. same as dominior also. there parts comes loose and theire speed decreases in future automatically. royal bikes not that. u take 40 years back bike. once u ride u will say yes this is royal enfield.finally dominor is a vivo phone.interceptor is a iphone. i think u know vivo and iphone difference like camera display etc like same as dominor and interceptor
    • The money you pay for Interceptor is worth only if you have fallen in love with its unbeatable sexy retro look. Dominar instead gives you cent percent satisfaction for the 200K you pay. I personally have a feeling that RE survive the competition only with its retro looks. Never go for interceptor without testing Dominar 400.😊
    • Re bikes are fun to ride but are very difficult and expensive to maintain. Personally I have a Thunderbird 350 and re bikes lose their lustor over the years which really left me disappointed with mine. The dominar on the other hand is much more refined and cheaper to maintain. Mileage wise the thunderbird gives me about 40kmpl and the dominar about 23kmpl but the tb does not go faster than 120kmph so if you want speed dominar.

    Q. I am planning this bike for touring and moderate highway riding but I am really confused now between the modern Dominar or the Classic Interceptor 650. I am 6ft tall and I am looking for comfortable seat and posture. Just investing 1 lakh more on interceptor is worth it or not is a different approach obviously due to more power and torque but in real world I think they both perform the same except torque delivery.
    • If you are opting for Interceptor better opt for a car but if you opt for dominar you can use it for daily commute as well as for touring and it maintains an upright posture while riding will be perfect for your height
    • Go for 2019 dominar 400 and after that you can install handlebar raisers for perfectly upright position
    • One of my friend who owns interceptor said he is having back pain, when riding long.
    Q. Which is better Bajaj Dominar or RE Interceptor? I am am old school guy, so my inclination is towards Interceptor while my son is 20 year, 6ft guy. We are looking for one common bike between us, please suggest between these two.
    • The Royal Enfield Interceptor would be the ideal match as the bike gets a powerful parallel twin engine which has great power as compared to the Bajaj Dominar's single cylinder unit. Moreover, the bike has a very low vibration which feels butty smooth. The Dominar has been enriched with the features and a better technology such as the liquid cooling system which helps the bike to churn a better performance. We do also suggest you to take a test ride of the bikes at the nearest dealership so that you may choose the most compatible option in terms of usability, comfort, features, and performance of the bikes.
    • RE interceptor is the best choice
    • Interceptor has reported some quality issuesBetter go for cbr/dominar
