Bookings for the quarter-liter Bajaj Dominar start: Report
A few days back, we reported that Bajaj Auto will launch a quarter-liter variant of its popular sports tourer, the Dominar, in India soon. And now, a report by BikeDekho claimed that select company dealerships have already started accepting the booking for the 250cc Dominar at a token amount ranging from Rs. 500-1,000. Here are more details.
Going by the reports, the quarter-liter Dominar will borrow the styling cues from its elder sibling, the Dominar 400. The motorcycle will get a sporty design featuring an all-LED headlamp unit and a dual-digital instrument cluster. Moreover, it would be offered in red and matte black color options instead of the eye-catching metallic green paint scheme that we saw on the 400cc variant.
The Bajaj Dominar 250 will reportedly share its mechanical specifications with its cousin, the KTM 250 Duke. The bike is likely to pack a 248.8cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, DOHC engine that comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The motor is capable of producing 30PS of maximum power at 9,000rpm and 24Nm of peak torque at 7,500rpm.
On the safety front, the Bajaj Dominar 250 will come equipped with disc brakes on both ends, along with dual-channel ABS to avoid skidding while braking. The suspension duties on the quarter-liter sports tourer will be taken care of by upside-down telescopic forks on the front and a multi-step adjustable mono-shock unit on the rear.
The company is yet to reveal the official details about the Bajaj Dominar 250, but reports suggest that the motorcycle will carry a premium of around Rs. 20,000-30,000 over the 400cc model. The sports bike is expected to be priced around Rs. 1.6-1.7 lakh and take on the likes of Suzuki Gixxer 250 and Yamaha FZ 25.
