Bajaj Domiar 400 is currently the flagship model from the Indian two wheeler manufacturer. Dominar 400 is a power cruiser and has been available in the market for quite some time. It is a popular among bike among young buyers for the looks, performance and the comfort it provides. Bajaj has also launched a less powerful, smaller capacity version of the same motorcycle, known as Dominar 250 in the market. Dominar 250 was launched in the market with a motive to make the brand even more popular and accessible among young buyers. Here we have a video that tests the 0-100 kmph timing and top speed of the 250cc version.
The video has been uploaded by Strell on his youtube channel. The video simply starts by testing the 0-100 kmph timing of the motorcycle. The rider does test in two rounds. He chooses a long stretch of highway for this purpose and launches the bike forward. The Dominar 250 was quick and in the first round it took 12.5 seconds. As per the video Dominar 250 was pushed up till 50 kmph in first gear, 77 kmph in second gear and 102 kmph in third gear.
He then prepares for the second round and this time around, he launches the bike a bit more aggressively. This reflects in the sprint timings as the bike hit 100 kmph mark is just 10.9 seconds which is impressive. He then moves ahead for the top-speed run. vlogger chose an open stretch of highway and the starts pushing the motorcycle. The fuel tank has 90 percent fuel in it and the rider weight is 62 kilograms. All these factors affect the top-speed of a bike. The vlogger pushes it hard on the highway and Dominar 250 manages to hit 142 kmph mark which is quite impressive.
In terms of look, Dominar 250 is similar to its elder sibling. The 250 version gets thinner USDs and rear tyres, a new swingarm, smaller disc brakes and a smaller capacity engine. Apart from that almost every other part on this is the same as Dominar 400. With all these changes, Domianr 250 is 4 kilograms less heavier than its elder sibling. The 250 cc version of Dominar uses an engine that we have seen in KTM Duke 250 already. It uses a 248-cc, single-cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel injected engine that generates 26.6 Bhp and 23.5 Nm of torque. It competes with bikes like Suzuki Gixxer 250 and Yamaha FZ25 in the segment.
