The upcoming Bajaj Dominar is expected to be priced roughly between Rs 1.45 lakh and Rs 1.55 lakh, ex-showroom, in order to keep it competitively priced to fight in the 250cc segment.

Thoughts About Bajaj Confirming The Dominar 250's Debut For March This Year

Well, we think Bajaj really needs to put the Dominar on a weight loss program. For reference sake, the KTM 390 weighs in at 163 kilograms (curb); and the Dominar 400 at 184 kilograms.

KTM's Duke 250 weighs in at 161 kilograms, meaning the Dominar is likely to weigh closer to the 175 kilogram mark. Considering they're using the same engines (although detuned), we can't figure out why Bajaj makes most of their performance oriented motorcycles sluggish.
