Original Article - November 12, 2020; Bajaj's Dominar series motorcycles are very popular in the Indian market. The first motorcycle in the Dominar series was the Dominar 400 and it was first launched in India in the year 2016. It became an instant hit, however, the 2016 Dominar 400 had quite a few niggles and Bajaj addressed most of them by launching the Dominar 400 UG in 2019, where UG stands for Upgrade. Now, earlier this year, the company launched the BS6-compliant Dominar 400 and also expanded the Dominar family with the introduction of the Dominar 250. Thanks to these new BS6 models, the Bajaj Dominar series has recently registered its highest-ever monthly sales figures in India.
The Bajaj Dominar 400 has always been a decent seller, at best. Yes, it never continued to sell in great numbers for long but it wasn't performing too bad too. However, with the introduction of the new quarter-litre Bajaj Dominar earlier this year, the entry gate to the world of hyper riding has become much more accessible than before. The Dominar 250 costs around 35,000 rupees less than its elder sibling - Dominar 400. Yes, the D250 does miss out on some equipment, gets a less powerful engine, etc. But, that's fine as it is priced significantly lesser than the D400. This has worked in Bajaj's favour and the Dominar 250 has been able to garner good numbers for the brand.
In this table below, we have listed for you the monthly sales figures of the Bajaj Dominar 400 and the recently launched Dominar 400 for the calendar year 2020 (upto October) to give you a clear idea of the Dominar's market:
|Month||Dominar 400||Dominar 250||Total|
As you have seen in the above table, while the Dominar 400 could achieve the four-digit sales mark only in October this year, the Dominar 250 has been selling in good numbers consistently since June 2020 (as unlock 2.0 came into effect from June). Also, please do note that the Dominar 250 was officially launched in India in March this year. But, according to the sales figures, two units of the D250 were shipped even before its official launch. Now, talking about these motorcycles, the new Dominar 250 is powered by a BS6-compliant 248.8cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, four-stroke, DOHC, four-valve, twin spark, liquid-cooled DTS-i engine. This motor churns out 27 PS of power at 8500 RPM and 23.5 Nm of peak torque at 6500 RPM. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
