The Bajaj Dominar 250 is all set to go on sale soon and sources tell that the on-road cost of the bike is Rs 1.89 lakh (on-road, Pune). That’s Rs 29,000 in taxes and insurance over the ex-showroom price of the Bajaj Dominar 250, said to be around Rs 1.60 lakh.
Interestingly, the price of the Dominar 250 isn't too far from the Bajaj Dominar 400. The Bajaj Dominar 400 is priced at Rs 1.90 lakh (ex-showroom) which is Rs 30,000 more than the Dominar 250. That price, however, is for the BS4 version.
The BS6 Dominar 400 could see a price increase of about Rs 1,700 but that doesn’t take away the fact that the D400 comes across as great value.
Coming back to the Dominar 250, Bajaj dealers in Pune have begun taking bookings for the upcoming Dominar 250. The booking amount is Rs 500 and the bikes are already on display at some showrooms.
Though the 250’s design looks identical to the Dominar 400’s, the 250 is running on what look like thinner tyres, and it also has a simpler box-section swingarm. The front-disc diameter also appears to be smaller than the 320mm unit of the Dominar 400.
While the bike has the same wheel design, it misses out on the diamond-cut finish. Other than that, the 250 appears almost identical to the 400. Not only will this help keep prices down (thanks to parts sharing) but it will also make the Dominar more accessible.
The Bajaj Dominar 250, when it comes to prices, will go up against the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and KTM 200 Duke.
