  • Q. I am confused between Meteor 350 and Dominar 250. I am looking for city as well as touring compatible bike. I'm not looking for High speed cruising (90-110kmph cruising speed will be enough). Also, decent cornering ability will be enough. Both the bikes will fulfill my requirements. However, I am confused because of new RE Meteor refined and long stroke engine feel, at the same time looks and features Dominar 250 provide in this price range. I am currently using Yamaha FZ16 (2013 model), which one would be better upgrade?

    As per your requirements, Dominar 250 would be a better pick. Is is suitable enough for city commutes as well as for highway long rides. Certainly Meteor is refined as compared to other 350 cc Royal Enfield bikes but between these two, it is the Dominar 250 that is properly refined and is butter smooth even when cruising at 100kmph. The ratios of the 6-speed transmission are well spaced for better low-mid-range performance. Keep the tachometer needle hovering between 2000 and 3000rpm, and the bike can move along without any issues. As far as the features are concerned, the bike is loaded with premium bits like an all-LED lighting system, full-digital instrument cluster, and power cruiser-like styling with a comfortable touring-friendly riding position. The instrument cluster isn’t as detailed as its bigger sibling with real-time mileage indicators and such, but it is informative enough to fulfil its basic purpose. If we talk about Meteor 350, This Royal Enfield fulfills the promise made by the Thunderbird many years ago. However, the Meteor doesn’t make a bigger and bolder promise of its own by way of plush ride quality, a greater sense of richness or, crucially, better cruising ability. You may compare both bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.

  • Q. What is the top speed of Bajaj Dominar 250?

    The brand has not revealed the exact top speed of Dominar 250, however, it is expected to be around 135kmph. The bike manages 100kmph in 6th gear with the engine ticking a little over 6000rpm and at this speed, it’s absolutely butter smooth. Even speeds of 120 feel really smooth, although it takes a little time to get there. For more information, check out the Bajaj Dominar 250 Road Test.

    The pillion seat won't be good for more weighted pillion.

      Overall its good.But the weight is pain in the ass.But you will get used to it.Now i don't feel anything while driving, Only time i feel its heavy is when i try to reverse it.

      The bike has been an absolute charm to ride.It looks awesome.The exhaust note is music to the ears.It is easy to ride in traffic and also cruise comfortably at 100-110 on the highway.The build quality is absolutely top class.Since the bike is very front heavy, It took a little time to adjust to it.But 1-2 weeks into riding it, I don't have any problem in manoeuvring the bike now.I will recommend this bike to anyone who wants to upgrade from their 100-150cc bike.

      It is a very awesome bike it's so dammm perfect for me.The only one thing it miss is a gear position indicator and some calculations like kms to empty, Top speed, Average mileage etc.Even though i love it very much its a cool awesome powerful bike.

      Well it's the best in segment bike!! it lacks electronics though! well price of bike is justified.Milage is a problem but you can't expect 30-35kmpl which is company claimed.

      It's the best quarter litre in the segment.Stability and power is good enough for touring especially on highways.The maintenance cost is very less as compared to other quarter litres in the indian market.

      It's nearly 2 months I used this bike. It's very aggressive and gives better performance. I can feel vibration on first 3 gears after that, bike shows his real attitude smoothness. Slipper clutch and breaks all are perfect. But gear shifting will be noisy even it can feel by people who is walking on road. Mileage I just got 28 kms/liter, 250cc so it's not disappoint that much. Main drawback is weight, you have full road to turn this bike and you always keep one person with you for take reverse. All apart I love my brotherhood

      I loved this bike, very aggressive with sporty performance, heavy and rock solid so that it will be planted in all the speeds, barley no vibration after 3rd gear, very comfortable seating position and extraordinary clutch. Since its slipper clutch, gear shifting will be noisy. Average mileage 30kmpl which i checked neck to neck method in city, yet to check in highway. Suspension are good. Cons are missing gear shift indicator, rear tires are smaller. planning to change the tire to 150/60.

      Not worth of 2 lakhs of bike lots of vibration on 1st to 3rd gear on my footped.Apart from engine sound there was another sound coming.At service center they told it's bike sound but while riding it's feel like am riding old bike with lots vibration and some utter sound.Only hope remain was mileage but it's give around 25 to 30 in city and 30 to 35 on highway.This was big dissapointment from 250 cc bike worth of 2 lakh.I feel like cheated.Better go with ktm or meteor 350.
