My son used to ride Dominar. He is no more in this world. I am his father replying. What ever he discussed with me I have answered before. His height was 5ft.10in. In future I will not be in a position to answer other queries. He was very satisfied with the performance. I am interested in selling his bike which was purchased by him in the month of May 2017. If anyone is interested then please contact me.
Try sitting astride on the bike, if your feet touches flat to the ground, you have your answer.
I am 5.7ft. I feel very comfortable while riding dominar. It looks
bulky and heavy but when you ride it feels very light easy to ride. I feel you should buy one but wait for 2019.
Dominar 400 D ABS is a great bike for tall people. I suggest you visit their showroom, sit astride and check if both your feet touch comfortably on the ground. The bike has the footpegs a bit forward mounted, that's the reason I stated to sit astride and check it out yourself.
Bike is heavy weighing almost 185 kg and the same will not feel while you're riding ..... only in city you will feel hectic but in highway it is awesome to ride and you will feel worth of it....Do think and buy.... Even think about newly launched CB300R
Yes it is okay for 5'6" tall person.. But at first you will face a little problem with height but after some time it will be ohky.. #From my personal experience as I'm 5'6.5"
Yes you can use it for daily purpose but the beast is very thirsty u will get around 22kmpl so if your work place is far like 40km then I would not recommend it.. And for touring purpose it is the best I had done my Kerala trip u can ride for continuous 5 hrs after that u will feel a minute pain in ur back but pillion rider won't be able to withstand those hours as pillion seat is not as comfortable as rider seat.. So for solo u can go very far in a single pace but with pillion u will have to take continuous short breaks..
In 2019 model, they have made lot of changes, like engine is from
SOHC to DOHC, for better fuel efficiency, there us gear shift indicator on the tank , the mirrors design has
been changed, and they haye added a dual exhaust, and ride vy wire functioning.It can been daily commute, as i
drive daily up and down 50 kms, its like going in a flow, and going and going........
USD fork in front, front disk is mounted to left instead of right and more over power is same. Few digital information are added which can be seen on tank mounted display. exhaust may change.
Dear Vishesh... I am using pulsar for my daily commute and dominar for long rides. But am much comfortable with dominar for daily use too except considering the fuel efficiency. You better wait for more refined Jawa and RE twins... Many bloggers say Jawa is optimised for both daily commute and long trips. So nothing wrong in waiting for one or two months to get the best choice handy... All the best for your future rides...
Dominar will be perfect , ok for city commute because it's mileage suffers in very heavy traffic , but really good for long road trips because it's reliable, no vibrations, easily cruise over 100 and gives mileage above 30 on highways
Go in for dominar because it's good in city as well as highways for very long rides. It's got a radiator so u can comfortably cruise at speeds 120-125 all day long
Both Bajaj Dominar and Mahindra Mojo are the good option for daily commute. As your driving is mostly in city so Mahindra Mojo will be a good option as it a 295cc motor which churns out 26.29PS of power at 7500rpm and 28Nm of torque at 5500rpm which will be a perfect combination for city traffic where as Bajaj Dominar is a naked sport bikewhich is mated to 373cc single-cylinder, liquid cooled motor which churns out 40PS @ 8650rpm, while peak torque of 35Nm @ 7000rpm which will is better suited for highway cruising. However, we'd suggest taking the test ride so that you can understand the difference and finalize your choice - New Bike Showrooms - Bike Showrooms
If you don't have a word called refinement in your dictionary Duke 390 was the choice...otherwise ninja 300 for top notch quality refinement high end power reliability..Yamaha r3 as second costly option...not to lean more in an r3 so faily use..g310gs good ...dominars if you trust bajaj.
I have a ninja 300 it's a wonderful machine n awesome for long distances but service cost is damn high.. I'll suggest Domi.. true value for money bike n can go distances n is awesome for daily usage...
I could say Yamaha R3 , parallel twin engine, service cost is cheap . You can go and arrive single anywhere
It might not be easy for a beginner to control the power Bajaj Dominar 400 holds under the hood. The bike is also on the heavier side, therefore, we would suggest you to practice riding on the daily commuter low weighted bikes and then go for the Dominar 400. Moreover, you can have a test ride of the bike for a better idea of comfort and ride quality by visiting the nearest dealer in your city. You can click on the following link to see the details of the nearest dealership and selecting your city accordingly - Dealers.
I always advocate that you go through a 160 - 180cc - 250 cc bike, learn to maintain them before upgrading to a 400cc onwards. Or wait for the Dominar 200cc then upgrade.
Take full responsibilty while riding... so it will be friendly bike
If the Bajaj Dominar 400 is left idle for 6-months, there would be no major problems except the battery draining, which may result in restarting issues. For further assistance, we would suggest you walk into the nearest service centres as they will be better people to assist you.

If it's going to be for 6 months then it's better to drain all the petrol and disconnect the battery. Even engine oil should be drained
Yes please keep the battery disconnected and low fuel in your bike

Sell this bike and buy a 2019 model than going through the hassle of swapping bike parts. About brake pads from an APACHE RR 310 cc, I honestly do not know.
Swapping the suspension would not be a problem. Also i don't think the brake pads would even fit.If they do you can do it without a hitch
For your son to grow into bikes at 20 suggest look at 100 - 125 cc there is a lot you can look into. Mind you be careful with ktm 125 though it could be very addictive if you pick that up for him. Although it's a decent but pricey package. Best is you let him ride a few test rides and convince him to go in for something smaller to get used to. Then gradually move up.
Which was the last bike your son ride, depends upon, if new to riding than prefer below 200cc, IMO go for suzuki Gixxer 150, yamaha MT15, TVS 200R.
Best city riding more mileage safety and sportish as per age ktm 125 rc 125 and yamaha mt15 and yamaha R15 is best for young star.
Both the bikes have their own uniqueness. they are well built for their own purposes. all I could say is when u r on a trip no matter how good the bike is you will get stuck with one or the other problem. at that peak point u would easily find a RE service more easily compared to a bajaj. apart from the service criteria. spokes carry more load at rough terrain compared to an alloy rim
Go with Himalayan, Best bike available in market for both on road off road adventure .
Offers related to exchange will be best shared by the dealership itself so, we'd suggest you to visit the nearest authorized dealership. Click on the link and select your city accordingly for - Bajaj Bike Showrooms
Better find a buyer on olx or any other platform, Bajaj will offer you very, very less for your dominar in exchange scheme. I did the same with my p220.
If you are looking for a composed city commuter with best-in-segment performance and a dynamically capable bike, then the KTM 250 Duke would be a good option. The 248.8cc, liquid-cooled motor produces a peak power output of 30PS and 24Nm of peak torque. On the other hand, if your concern is better mileage and decent performance, then TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 could be a good option. Moreover, if you are looking for a comfortable and powerful tourer motorcycle then Bajaj Dominar 400 fits the picture. In order to know which car would be a more suitable companion, we'd recommend taking a test drive.

If it is only city, then TVS Apache 200. If one is okay with a heavy motorcycle for sedate highway cruising + city rides at low cost, then Dominar 2019. If the choice is for a lightweight pocket rocket for city and long distance tours + needs advanced tech to support the ride, then Duke 250
Apache is pocket friendly, Duke is to stand out of crowd, dominar is powerful value for money bike. If you want style go for Duke.If you want power go for Dominar.If you want to save money go for Apache.I bought Duke 250
Hero Xpulse 200 features a roomy seat in terms of length even for taller riders and a pillion, although in typical dirtbike fashion, it isn’t wide. The seat is a bit firm, making it better suited for off-road riding and city commutes. On the other hand, the pillion seat on Bajaj Dominar 400 quite large and accommodating with the comfortable riding posture, touring on the Dominar shouldn’t be a tiring proposition. But the high set pegs mean taller riders will find it slightly cramped. In order to know which bike would be a more suitable companion, we'd recommend taking a test ride.
