Bajaj Auto has finally launched the much talked about Dominar 250. This becomes the cheapest nameplate for the Dominar brand, and the Dominar 400 will continue to co-exist. Dubbed as a sports tourer in the Bajaj family, the Dominar 250 has been priced at INR 1.60 lakh ex-showroom Delhi and is now available for sale across all dealerships. The 2020 Bajaj Dominar 250 will be sold in red & black paint options.
Powering the 2020 Bajaj Dominar 250 is a 248.77cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, 4-valve, fuel-injected, BS6 compliant motor producing 27 PS of power @ 8500 RPM and 23.5 Nm of torque @ 6500 RPM matched to a 6-speed gearbox. Bajaj claims that the Dominar 250 can achieve a top speed of 132 kmph. 0-100 kmph sprint on the Dominar 250 will take 10.5 seconds, which makes it reasonably fast as per segment standards.
Features on the Bajaj Dominar 250 include full LED lighting (head light, tail light, turn indicators), 37mm USD front forks, alloy wheels, AHO, dual-channel ABS, slipper assist clutch, perimeter chassis, twin barrel exhaust end can, split seats, sturdy & stylish rear view mirrors, bungee straps under the seat, tank pad, small smoked front fly screen, split digital speedometer cluster, etc. The 2020 Bajaj Dominar 250 measures 2156mm in length, 836mm in width, 1112mm in height, 157mm in ground clearance, 1453mm in wheelbase and has a kerb weight of 180 kg. The bike rides with a 13L fuel tank capacity, 17″ rims, 300mm front disc brake and a 230mm rear disc brake.
Dominar is the flagship nameplate in Bajaj showrooms and this is the first time it has expanded to more than one product. The Dominar 400 was first launched with an intention to bite into the Royal Enfield market share, and this new Dominar 250 creates a more accessible entry point. So, where the Bajaj Pulsar model range tops out at the 220cc model, the Dominar range picks up from there and starts at 250cc. It will be interesting to see how the market accepts the new Dominar 250.
