Indian two wheeler manufacturer has a range of motorcycles in their line up. Pulsar is the most popular motorcycle and their flagship model. Dominar has also been popular in the segment. Bajaj recently launched a 250-cc version of the Dominar with minor changes from that of the bigger engined variant to make the more affordable version of the motorcycle much more appealing and affordable among its buyers. Bajaj has now released an all-new TVC for the latest Dominar 250 motorcycle.
The video starts by showing a rider parking his Dominar 250 at a cafe in the middle of nowhere and in some time a bunch of bikers in Dominar 400 arrive at the spot and start checking out the bike. Then as the rider starts getting back to his Dominar 250, one of the Dominar 400 biker pats him and congratulates him for his choice.
When he gets back the rider spots that the group had tied a Tibetan prayer flag on his motorcycle which is a common thing that we see on motorbikes and cars exploring that part of the country. The advertisement simply wants to say that Dominar 250 looks no different from bigger 400-cc sibling apart from a smaller engine. That should not hold a person back from exploring new possibilities.
The Dominar 250 has couple of changes in comparison to the 400 version. Starting with the front, even though it gets a USD fork, it is now thinner than the 400 version. The weight of the Dominar 250 is also way 4 kilograms less than the Dominar 400. Disc brake at the front is smaller whereas the rear ones are similar to its bigger sibling. Another difference is the regular tyre in Dominar 250, in comparison to the radial tyres in the D400.
Some of the features that it retains is a slipper clutch, a throaty exhaust note and a dual instrument cluster. Unlike Dominar 400, the instrument cluster on the 250cc variant does not show gear position indicator. The engine on Domianr 250 is a unit based on that of the KTM Duke 250. The 248-cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled engine generates 26.6 Bhp and 23.5 Nm of torque.
The motorcycle competes with motorcycles like Suzuki Gixxer 250, Yamaha FZ25 in the segment. Bajaj Dominar 250 tourer motorcycle is priced at Rs 1.6 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. With the launch of 250cc model, Bajaj wants to make their Dominar name more popular among buyers by making it more accessible.
