  • Q. I own a Pulsar 220F, 2010 edition. it's been 10 years now and I badly need an upgradeI was quite settled with the thought of buying Dominar400 initially but given the onroad price in Bangalore & recent price hikes, it now marginally goes out of my budget. I am looking for 60% city and 40% touring usage kind of machine. will the dominar 250 be a good upgrade or shall I opt something like Himalayan or Meteor or eventually go for D400?my preferences though would be riding comfort(rider & pillion), good performance.

    As per your requirements, the Dominar 250 would be a brilliant pick if you are not willing to spend further. Bajaj Dominar 250 offers brilliant value for the money spent. But money aside, as a motorcycle, the Dominar 250 does one thing right -- it is fit to purpose. The Dominar 250’s motor felt boring on the KTM, but combined with the comfortable tourer the Dominar is, it works beautifully. It truly feels like it deserves the ‘sports tourer’ tag. The other really impressive aspect of this D250 is its ride quality. Both front and rear suspension are running a softer tune compared to the 400. The only thing you have to watch out for is braking when going over those sharp bumps, as it can cause the front end to bottom out. But apart from that, the Dominar 250’s ride quality is nothing short of wonderful. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - Bajaj Dominar 250 Road Test - Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6: Road Test Review - 2020 Royal Enfield Meteor 350: Road Test Review

    Thanks much for the feedback. Yes I agree with the bottoming out of the front end due to low ground clearance.
