The 2020 Bajaj Dominar 250 has just made its official public debut in India yesterday and it looks to be one very respectable 250cc sport-touring model for the masses. Priced at Rs 1.60 lakh (around RM9,163 after direct conversion), it’s the perfect beginner’s bike for those looking to go the extra mile.
It’s also a considerable price cut compared to its bigger and more powerful sibling, the Dominar 400. We’re guessing that a lot of folks here in Malaysia would be interested in this particular model considering it carries a lot of the great specs of the Dominar 400 into its 250cc package (which also means that riders here won’t have to upgrade their riding license).
Fitted with a 250cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled DOHC engine taken from the KTM 250 Duke, the 2020 Bajaj Dominar 250 has been tuned to produce 27hp at 8,500rpm and 23.5Nm of max torque at 6,500rpm. All that power is transferred to the rear wheel via a six-speed manual transmission and all the emissions go through a double-barrel exhaust unit.
Housed within a beam type perimeter frame, the new Dominar 250 also comes with 37mm USD front forks, Multi-step adjustable Mono Shox rear suspension with Nitrox, dual-channel ABS (300mm front disc, 230mm rear disc), and 17-inch wheels.
The Indian market will be able to purchase the new 2020 Bajaj Dominar 250 in two different colour options: Canyon Red and Vine Black. There’s still no news on whether this particular model will arrive here in Malaysia but if it does, we’ll be the first to let you know.
