Royal Enfield Classic 350 (Rear Disc) vs. Bajaj Dominar 400
Royal Enfield recently launched the Classic 350 Gunmetal Grey in India for INR 1.43 lakh (approx. ex-showroom price). An exclusive entry into India, this RE thumper brings all-new rear disc brake to the Classic series. The magic happened when Bullet makers used the swing arm from Thunderbird series and ended the possibility of lesser space for a 240mm disc brake.
Apart from that, they introduced this new shade that looks impressive and seems to be an opposite to present generation gloss shades. Matt grey fuel tank, fender and side boxes are complemented further by dark tan seat of Classic 350.
Bajaj Dominar 400, on the other hand, is an exclusive piece of performance at INR 1.41 lakh. No one imagined a liquid cooled, fuel injected 373.2 cc engine at this price, that too performing equally exceptional with 35PS and 35Nm of the twist.
Not just that, buying a Dominar 400 brings powerful LED headlight, 110/70 front tyre, 150/60 rear tyre and 320mm front disc brake. If this still feels less, looking at the ABS variant at just INR 14,000 over this tag makes this a pure delight. Dominar 400 claims a top speed of 156 kmph and even weighs full 10 kg less than Classic 350.
The confusion of buying one of them can be ended in only one way. Ask yourself that how you actually love to drive. If you shift gears early and never think about numbers going crazy, go for Classic 350 while if you sometimes enjoy keeping the lower gear because of that burst of performance, choose Bajaj Dominar 400.
