Bajaj Dominator 250 can face cannibals if Pulsar 250 is competitively priced and offers more value to customers

Launched in March last year, the Dominator 250 is one of the most affordable 250cc bikes in the country. It is currently available at an initial price of Rs 1.59 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The bike will soon face competition from its own one – the Pulsar 250. The next one is scheduled for October 28 launch. Earlier, Dominic 250 sales fell in September.

 

 

Dominar 250 sale on September

Bajaj offers a wide range of motorcycles in the 250cc range. In addition to Dominar 250, they have Husqvarna twin Svartpilen and Vitpilen, then KTM Duke 250 and ADV 250. The Pulsar NS250 and Pulsar 250F will launch this week.

 

Dominator 250 production numbers are probably lower due to limited production due to global equipment shortages so they can make more units of the Pulsar 250 twins. Bajaj did not say anything about closing the Dominar 250. In fact, they are more bullish than anyone else in the industry in the 250cc segment.

 

 

Dominar 250 sales fell from 440 units in August to just 4 units in September. Many potential buyers will adopt a wait-and-see policy. They are expected to make a decision once the Pulsar 250 launches. Let’s see which of the two emerges as the favorite.

 

In the last 12 months, Dominar 250 sales have averaged 560 units per month. His older brother Dominar 400 741 seems to be doing relatively well with average monthly sales. Sales of the Dominar 250 are probably lower than expected, although the bike is competitively priced. Earlier this year, Bajaj reduced the price of Dominator 250 from Rs 1.71 lakh to Rs 1.54 lakh in July.

 

The 17k decline was significant, especially at a time when most manufacturers have increased their two-wheeler prices more than once this year. However, there does not seem to be much difference in sales as a result of lower prices. August sales of 440 units are significantly lower than the high of 1,750 units in October last year.

 

 

In addition to the price, Bajaj has also worked to improve the look and feel of the bike. In August, three new color options were introduced for the Dominar 250. All three are dual-tone color options, known as Citrus Rush and Matte Silver, Sparkling Black and Matte Silver and Racing Red and Matte Silver. These have significantly improved the sporty profile of the bike.

 

Mastering 250 vs. Pulsar 250

Being the largest Pulsar by far, the 250cc model is expected to be a well-equipped bike. In terms of styling, the Pulsar 250 brings a whole new look. Only a limited number of features have been borrowed from existing Pulsar motorcycles. Key updates include a new semi-digital instrument console. It is possible that the bike may get Bluetooth-based connectivity featur

The bike gets a new chassis. The frame has a twin tubular cradle frame and there is no downtube here. The bike uses a standard telescopic fork on the front and a monocoque absorber on the back. Both wheels have disc brakes and dual-channel ABS is expected to be standard. The bike will use Grimeca caliper.

 

The Pulsar 250 will be powered by a brand new 249cc, single cylinder, air / oil-cooled motor. It is expected to generate a maximum power of 24 bhp and 20 Nm of torque. It will be paired with a 6-speed gearbox. The bike is expected to have advanced features like Assist and Sipper Clutch and Variable Valve Actuation (VVA). In comparison, the Dominar 250 has a 248.77 cc, liquid cooled motor that generates 27 ps / 23.5 Nm. It has a 37mm USD fork on the front
