Quick Comparison: 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 vs KTM 390 Duke

2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 vs KTM 390 Duke (Quick Comparison): Bajaj Dominar is the most happening product of 2019, rivalling none other than KTM 390 Duke in the market with its premium list of components and added practicality. The new Dominar is available with 40 HP of maximum power, all-new front USD forks with a metallic finish and updated instrument console with more features that were demanded by the fans over the last few years.

The best part is the use of a DOHC engine, claiming the same sort of purity as seen in the KTM engines. The last generation engine was SOHC and thus, the total output and power delivery method were different. Now the total gap in output is limited to just 3.5 HP between both the bikes.

The top speed department won’t feel the heat here as both the bikes have a refined six-speed gearbox, and both the street fighters have an aerodynamic design.
