The Dominar’s 248.8cc engine makes 27PS power and 23.5Nm of torque!

The much-anticipated Bajaj Dominar 250 is finally here. The introduction of safety norms and new emission standards has pushed the price of the Dominar 400 to Rs 1.90 lakh, thus putting it out of reach for many. The quarter-litre cruiser stands as an affordable alternative with similar features on offer. A win-win for most Dominar enthusiasts.

To start things off, it packs a smaller 248.8cc single-cylinder DOHC engine that belts out 27PS power at 8500rpm and 23.5Nm of peak torque at 6500rpm, which is enough poke to get you to triple digits speeds in no time. In fact, Bajaj claims the Dominar 250 can bolt from 0-100kmph in 10.5 seconds. And if you’re curious, it tops out at 132kmph (claimed). Thankfully, the Dominar 250 retains the 400’s 6-speed transmission with a slipper clutch and 13.5-litre fuel tank.

In terms of underpinnings, the 250 uses a slimmer 37mm USD fork compared to the 43mm unit on its elder sibling. That said, it retains the same rear monoshock. The braking setup has been altered as well with a 300mm disc clamped by a radially mounted caliper and a 230mm disc at the rear. For reference, the Dominar 400 features a larger 320mm disc up front. Other changes include a box-section swingarm as opposed to the stamped metal swingarm on the Dominar 400.

The dimensions of the tyres have gone down as well, with a 100-section front and 130-section rear tyres putting the power down for the 250. The larger Dominar comes equipped with 110/70-17 front and a 150/60-17 rear radial tyres. Also, at 180kg (kerb), the Dominar 250 is 4kg lighter than 400. 

Not much has changed in terms of looks. The Dominar 250 looks near-identical to its elding sibling, albeit for a couple of differences. For instance, the 250cc motorcycle comes in two colour options: Canyon Red and Vine Black. It features the previous-gen Dominar’s instrument console where the tell-tale lights sit on the tank rather than the primary console. You can read more about it here

Apart from this, the wheels are finished in matte black instead of the dual-tone scheme on the 400. All said and done, it still shares a few likeable features like the full-LED lighting setup, a twin-barrel exhaust, perimeter frame and bungee straps tucked under the seat. 

At Rs 1.60 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the Dominar 250 competes against the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Yamaha FZ25.
