It’s got wide clip-on handlebars that are positioned quite close to the rider, and are reasonably tall. Also, the rider's seat itself is quite comfortable. As for the fuel efficiency, the bike delivers a claimed mileage of 37.5kmpl in the city and 40.95kmpl on highways, while the claimed fuel efficiency of Dominar 250 is 35.03kmpl.

  • Domi250 is naked tourer With drag handlebar and sf 250 is fully faired sports tourer with clip on handlebar. Domi250 riding position is better upright position than sf250. Sf250 is little agressive but sf250 engine refinement is much better. In city traffic don't worry for too much gear shifting in sf 250 and sf250 gives you better mileage and styling... If you ride for long distance then domi 250 is better.. your money your choice.. thank you bro..good luck for your new bike..
  • Totally , Dominar weighs much more than gixxer also the power to weight ratio is so bad you will have to rev the bike to get a good feel thereby reducing city mileage.

  • Actually my bike is still new though I am receiving a mileage around 30kmpl. Hope it will improve after one or two service. Although I am really interested with this mileage as I am always driving it in low gears in local market areas with lots of clutch and brakes.

    Partha Basak few weeks ago
  • real competitor...its a 250 cc..low heat from engines..good power and torque...great styling( but look like younger 150cc).. track and touring capacity..but if you pardon Suzuki for the wind shield..

    Jo few weeks ago
  • One of the best 250cc bike, Riding position is very comfortable but odd for pillon.Can easily touch 100kmph in less than 8 seconds and we can drive with ease.Rear break will work less effectively.

    Chandu Goud few weeks ago
