Bajaj Auto has simply launched the Dominar 250, at Rs 1.60 lakh, ex-showroom. At this value, the Dominar 250 prices Rs 30,000 lower than the Dominar 400, making the Dominar expertise accessible to wider viewers. Here are some things it’s best to know concerning the new Bajaj Dominar 250.

Looks much like the Dominar 400

The Dominar 250 shares the identical physique panels as seen on its elder sibling – and that’s not a foul factor in any respect. The Dominar’s design is fairly distinctive and that works in its favor. Some of the bits that stand out embrace the honeycomb LED headlamp, the massive gasoline tank, and the minimal tail part.

The Dominar 250 is just obtainable in both Canyon Red and Vine Black paintwork; although we want the Dominar 400’s Aurora Green was additionally obtainable on this smaller bike.

The Dominar 250 additionally makes use of a narrower, 100/80-17 tyre on the entrance and a 130/70-17 tyre on the rear. The entrance fork, although USD, is a smaller 37mm in diameter. It’s the identical story with the entrance disc measurement that’s down by 20mm, to 300mm.

So, in essence, the Dominar 250 wears the identical physique panels because of the Dominar 400. However, its wheels and suspension items are slimmer. That stated, the Dominar doesn’t seem under-tyred – not less than within the photos seen to this point.

Engine shared with the KTM 250 Duke

The Dominar 250 makes use of the identical 248.8cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine you see on the KTM 250 Duke.

The BS6-compliant engine, nonethelessappears to have been returned, conserving with the functions of the Dominar 250. On the KTM it is tuned to squeeze essentially the most efficienthowever the Dominar caters to a crowd that’s on the lookout for a strongbut calm cruiser.

This explains the Dominar’s decrease energy (27hp at 8,500rpm) and torque (23.5Nm at 6,500rpm) figures. The bike suggestions the scales at 180kg and it’ll be attention-grabbing to see the way it performs in the actual world.

Gets dual-channel ABS

Though the Dominar 250 sits decrease within the pecking order, it doesn’t lose out on vital security bits like dual-channel ABS.

A single-channel setup would have been barely less expensivehowever, there’s no denying the effectivity of a dual-channel setup.

Availability and pricing

The Bajaj Dominar 250 is on the market at Bajaj dealerships throughout the nation. As we had reported earlier, the on-road price of the bike in Pune is Rs 1.89 lakh.

Competition

The Bajaj Dominar 250 presents itself as a singular possibility within the 250cc area. In a market phase dominated both by naked or absolutely faired sportbikes, the Dominar 250, with its touring-focused design, stands out.

When it involves engine energy and torque figures, it goes up towards the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and Suzuki Gixxer SF250.
