Jawa Classic 300 vs Bajaj Dominar 400 [Quick Comparison]

Jawa Classic 300 vs Bajaj Dominar 400: The 400cc Dominar street motorcycle will face more struggle with the entry of Jawa 300 at INR 1.64 lakh. The buyers considering brand value will definitely move into the Jawa side while those expecting class-leading performance still have many reasons to stay. The engine on Jawa Classic 300 is 80cc smaller than the flagship Bajaj bike, resulting in lesser torque and low power. The weight difference of 12 kg makes Jawa comparable for real-world performance. The braking section is definitely stronger for the Dominar, with 320mm front disc brake claiming benchmark anchoring power for the machine.

Jawa 300, on the other hand, is available with 280mm front disc and rear drum brake. The addition of a rear disc brake would have helped eliminate the only drawback of the newly launched motorcycle. The tyres are massive on the Dominar, leaving fans of Jawa with 90-section front and 120-section rear option as standard. Such close pricing between Dominar, Classic 350 and Jawa 300 will mean tougher decision making for buyers who are not following brands closely. The fuel tank is bigger on the Jawa 300 while the number of features on Dominar 400 are unrivaled.
