Bajaj Dominar 250 Highlights
With the introduction of the Dominar 250, Bajaj Auto has not only expanded the Dominar family but also made it more accessible to the consumers. For those of you who may not know, the Bajaj Dominar 400 was first launched in 2016 and was updated in 2019 with a mid-cycle facelift. The Dominar 250, then, is based on the 2019 derivative of its higher-capacity sibling.
So, what are the differences? On first look, both the Dominar motorcycles might look exactly similar to one another, but there are a few differences hidden in the mix. While the body panels and the overall styling remains unchanged, the only visible difference is the use of narrower tyres, a smaller front disc brake, and narrower USD forks.
Fans of the Dominar series will be happy to know that the Dominar 250 looks virtually identical to its elder sibling. Bajaj Auto hasn’t tinkered around with the design, and those who loved the Dominar 400 for its elegant and contemporary design, are sure to find its 250cc derivative quite appealing. The dimensions, too, remain the same at 2,156mm of length, 836mm of width, and 1,112mm of height. Moreover, it has a fuel tank capacity of 13-litres and ground clearance of 157mm. The kerb weight, on the other hand, is lighter by 4kg, at 180kg.
Engine & Transmission
While it borrows its styling and looks from the Dominar 400, the Dominar 250 borrows its powertrain from the KTM 250 Duke. However, unlike in the Duke, the 248.77cc single-cylinder engine here produces 26.6bhp and 23.5Nm of torque, which is a bit lower in comparison. It is, however, mated to the same 6-speed manual gearbox. On the other hand, expect the Dominar 250 mileage to be better than the KTM.
Expect the ride and handling to be pretty much identical to the Dominar 400. The Dominar 250 new model, however, gets narrower 37mm USD forks – in comparison – at the front and monoshock at the back. It is built around a Beam type perimeter frame. The 17-inch wheels are shod with a 100/80-17 tyre at the front and a 130/70-17 tyre at the back. The braking duties are held by a 300mm disc brake at the front and a 230mm disc brake at the rear.
Surprisingly, the Bajaj Dominar 250 new model gets all the bells and whistles – barring the gear position indicator, that is – found on its higher-capacity sibling. It also gets dual-channel ABS and a slipper clutch. Moreover, the instrument cluster setup – with a fully-digital instrument cluster taking the centre space and a small LCD right below the handlebar – is borrowed too. In terms of lighting, the headlamp and taillamp are both LEDs.
Price & Variants
The Bajaj Dominar 250 is available in a single variant. The Bajaj Dominar 250 price (as of early-2020) is ₹1.60 lakh for the Standard variant (ex-showroom, Delhi). For the variant wise Bajaj Dominar 250 on-road prices, visit our prices section.
