The Dominar 250 and 400 may look identical, but there are a couple of crucial differences










[UpdateBajaj Dominar 250 Launched In India At Rs 1.6 lakh]


Bajaj usually plays its cards right. Its strategy involves offering the most bang for the buck, and the 2019 Dominar 400 is one such example. That said, the frequent price hikes over the past year or so has made the Dominar 400 a dream for many. So in a bid to make the genre more accessible, Bajaj has introduced the same bike with a smaller 250cc engine which should keep costs in check. There are a couple of other areas where Bajaj has cut corners. In order to understand the changes, we’ve compiled a number of images that’ll give you a better picture of the Dominar 250

In terms of visual differences, the Dominar 250 and 400 look identical apart from the new red paint option. Bajaj hasn't cut down on features either. It still gets the distinctive LED headlight, a USD fork, twin digital instrumentation, and a radially-mounted caliper up front. 

Step closer and you’ll notice Bajaj has done away with the dual-tone alloy wheels in favour of a single tone option. 

The second biggest difference is the full-digital instrument console. The Dominar 250 comes equipped with the old unit which features tell-tale lights on the tank-mounted console and the rest of the readings on the primary handlebar unit. On the contrary, the 400cc sibling gets a tank mounted console that features an odometer and trip meters along with a gear position indicator and clock. The tell-tale lights have been shifted to the primary console here.

While the twin-barrel exhaust remains the same as its elder sibling, the rear tyre has been downsized. 

It uses a smaller 300mm front disc rather than the 320mm rotor on the Dominar 400. 

The quarter-litre bike retains its split seat setup and still features the Dominar logo.

The quarter-litre motor is a reworked version of the KTM 250 Duke’s engine that complies with BS6 emission norms. If the state of tune remains the same, we can expect figures of 29.91PS and 24Nm. The engine uses a 6-speed transmission and a slip and assist clutch.

Thankfully, Bajaj hasn’t sacrificed the USD fork and rear monoshock to save costs. However, they could be tuned differently to handle the weight difference between the Dominar 250 and its elder sibling, the Dominar 400, which weighs 184kg (kerb).

Our sources suggest that the Dominar 250 could be priced in the range of  Rs 1.6 lakh to Rs 1.7 lakh (ex-showroom). That should make it around Rs 20,000 to Rs 30,000 more affordable than the Dominar 400. At this price point, the Dominar 250 will go up against the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Yamaha FZ25
