Modenas has officially launched the new Dominar 250 motorcycle for the Malaysian market at the 2023 Malaysia Autoshow.
- The Dominar 250 shares many of its specifications with the Dominar D400, but with a smaller engine.
- Powering the Dominar 250 is a KTM-derived 250cc single-cylinder DOHC engine.
The Dominar 250 comes equipped with a 249 cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine with a twin-spark cylinder head. The engine generates a maximum power of 27 hp at 8500 RPM and 23.5 Nm of torque at 6500 RPM. The bike also features a 6-speed gearbox and a slipper clutch for smooth gear shifts.
One of the most significant differences between the Dominar 250 and 400 is the suspension setup with the former comes with 37 mm diameter upside-down forks compared to the 400’s 43 mm units, while the aluminium swingarm on the 400 is replaced with a box-section type arm.
The Dominar 250 is available in three colour options: Sparkling Black, Racing Red, and Citrus Rush, giving customers a range of choices to pick from. The bike has a sleek and sporty design, with LED lighting, a digital instrument cluster, and a comfortable riding position.
Stocks of the Dominar 250 will be available in authorised Modenas Malaysia dealer showrooms from this month with a recommended selling price of RM13,797.
