– Second price increment since its launch in March 2020
– Remains unaltered in other aspects
Bajaj has increased the price of the Dominar 250 for the second time since its launch in March 2020. The motorcycle was launched at Rs 1.60 lakh, which was followed by its first price hike of Rs 4,090 in September. After a month now, the Chakan-based bike maker has bumped its price once again, this time by Rs 1,625. The Bajaj Dominar 250 is now pegged at Rs 165,715 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Bajaj has introduced the smaller 250cc iteration of the Dominar in order to make the touring motorcycle more accessible for the masses. It boasts of a styling, features and ergonomics identical to its larger 400cc sibling. While the hardware package is also similar, there are certain differences to match with its smaller motor and to make it more affordable.
Powering the Dominar 250 is a 248.77cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor which is derived from the KTM 250 Duke’s engine. It churns out 26.6bhp of power and 23.5Nm of peak torque. The motorcycle rides on 17-inch alloy wheels which are suspended by 37mm upside down forks and pre-load adjustable monoshock. Braking is taken care of by a disc at both ends with dual-channel ABS as standard. Weighing 180 kg (kerb), the Dominar 250 is quite on the heavier side and it gets a 13 litre fuel tank.
