Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which is best bike, NS 200, Dominar 400 and Himalayan?
  • So the category is real different. Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 is a good machine in the lower segment. It is affordable, easy to maintain and value for money. It has a high revving engine so it tends to get a little buzzy at high rpm. The low end torque is missing. Because of the smaller engine, the bike has a tough time going against the wind or doing long rides. The Dominar 400 is a good machine. Comfortable seating, mid sized engine, good power output, handles long rides like its nothing at all. Impressive performance. Suspension is on the stiffer size though. Not that big a deal. The switches and other parts are good. would rate a 3/5 on the fit and finish. Best budget buy.The Himalayan is a mile muncher. the bike has its own style. Onroad manners are nice and off road the Himalayan is a beast. The best part is, that it is raw. The posture is perfect to saddle and the bike is rugged. Can handle getting down and dirty. More than you can expect. It depends on what you are expecting the bike to do.
  • All 3 bikes represent completely different segments .NS 200 is a naked street fighter which can be easily used is daily commute and also some free styling with your bike due to it's light weight .Dominar 400 is a high powerd speed cruiser. This bike best for highway Crusing guys who wants to travel the road with some good speed and power.And on the other side , Himalayan is completely different bike . This is purposely build for off Roading . So it doesn't matters what kind of road you want to travel , you can go to nastiest roads with Himalayan .
  • NS 200 is like a city bike. Dominar 400 is a touring bike. Himalayan is the cheapest adventure touring bike. If you plan to ride in city only then go for NS 200. If you plan to go for occasional highway rides(no off road) then Dominar. If you want to enjoy the true awesomeness of Himalayan you should ride it off road.
