Honda CB200X vs Bajaj Dominar 250 - Check All Details!

Updated On: 18 October 2021 Nitin Kadian

The newly introduced Honda CB200X is one of the most affordable adventure bikes in the brand's portfolio. While the bike does get a number of changes to appeal to the customers, the package largely remains similar to what we get with the Hornet 2.0. Having said this, the CB200X is priced closely to many other bikes in the segment which leaves the buyers confused and hence, here is a Honda CB200X vs Bajaj Dominar 250 comparison that will help you decide better.

Honda CB200X Vs Bajaj Dominar 250 Exterior Design and Dimensions

We all know that the Honda CB200X is based on the brand's latest Hornet 2.0. Both these bikes not only have the same underpinnings but also share the exact same suspension setup. Having said that, the overall design of the CB200X is completely different and you get flared panels with a more upright seating stance. Likewise, the bike gets a refreshed front fascia with a large wind visor, knuckle guards, and raised handlebar. The bike also gets under-cowl to protect the engine. Having said this, the CB200X does have a better road presence and looks a lot more premium and upmarket than what it actually is.

In addition to this, the bike also offers extremely comfortable seats and an extremely impressive suspension setup. The rear too falls in line with the front design and maintains its aggressive character with a strong hint of elegance.

The Honda CB200X gets a 184.4cc single-cylinder engine that produces 17.2 ps of peak power output while the peak torque being delivered by this engine stands at 16.1 Nm. A 5-speed manual gearbox comes mated to this engine. The refinement levels from this motor are impressive and the power delivery too makes it a great bike for the city as well as highway usage. Despite having low power and torque figures, the lightweight of the bike does help it perform decently well in almost all situations. However, progress is slow once you cross the 80kmph mark.

The Dominar 250 on the other hand gets a bigger and more powerful engine that delivers 27 ps and 23.5 Nm of peak torque output. Unlike the CB200X, this Dominar 250 gets a 6-speed manual gearbox. However, there is no major difference in terms of outright acceleration as the Dominar 250 is slightly heavier but it does tend to gain an edge as the speeds go up. Needless to say, the CB200X does boast better refinement and NVH levels.

Final Verdict

While the CB200X tries hard to be an adventure bike that everyone would like, it does miss out on a number of things.
