Bajaj Auto has announced the launch of the more accessible Dominar series motorcycle, the Dominar 250. The quarter-litre variant of the Dominar range is available at an ex-showroom price tag of Rs 1.60 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). The Dominar 400 BS6, for reference, will be sold at Rs 1.91 lakhs.
The latest model to join Bajaj’s product portfolio draws styling cues from the Dominar 400. Thus, the Dominar 250 gets full-LED lighting, split-style instrument cluster and muscular styling. The new Dominar 250 is available in two colour options – Canyon Red and Vine Black. Hardware specifications are similar to the Dominar 400 too, and the shock absorption tasks are handled by upside-down telescopic forks at the front and a preload-adjustable mono-shock at the back. Anchoring power comes from disc brakes on both wheels while the safety net comprises a dual-channel ABS.
Mechanical specifications include a 248.77cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC motor that is based on the KTM’s 250cc engine. Bajaj, however, has tweaked the motor to integrate its twin-spark technology. Linked to a six-speed gearbox, the motor is tuned to produce 26.6bhp of power at 8,500rpm and 23.5Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. The quarter-litre naked roadster from the Austrian brand, in comparison, produces 29.6bhp and 24Nm.
The new Bajaj Dominar 250 will rival the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Yamaha FZ25.
