5 Reasons Why Bajaj Dominar 400 is a Better Buy than the BMW G310R

A majority of buyers are looking for value for money bikes in India and considering Dominar 400 becomes an utmost necessity due to class-leading features and mind-boggling price. BMW has launched the G310R in India for INR 2.99 lakh, leaving many fans in an emotional pain with hope failing to exist. It may not sound like a straightforward comparison for hundreds of BMW fans but, Bajaj Dominar 400 needs some formal praise for being highly affordable and equally practical. Here are five reasons why considering Bajaj Dominar is a good option over BMW G310R.

5 Reasons Why Bajaj Dominar 400 is a Better Buy Than the BMW G310R

1) Value for Money

Dominar 400, priced at INR 1.63 lakh (ABS model), is placed much lower in comparison to BMW G310R. The gap of INR 1.36 lakh is unjustified in all terms, leaving buyers with an option of getting an additional Yamaha FZ25 with a top-spec Dominar 400. BMW seems to be using the name for extra cash-in as fully faired Apache RR 310 @ INR 1.99 Lakh is priced INR 1 lakh lower in comparison to the G310R in Kerala. Bajaj Dominar 400 offers excellent value for money in comparison to the G310R.

2) Performance Difference

BMW G310R uses a 313cc, single cylinder engine producing 34HP and 28Nm. When compared to Bajaj Dominar 400, the values feel dull and unexciting. The 373cc, single cylinder engine on Dominar 400 is sufficient for 35HP and 35Nm. The additional weight on the Dominar is managed by the extra torque, claiming much higher top speed (156 kph) than the BMW roadster (143 kmph). Even the 0-100 kph sprint times are comparable.

3) Spare Part Availability/Price

After spending a tremendous amount on G310R, buyers will get continuous shocks in the form of spare part availability and pricing. Being a BMW, G310R will bring greater bills for each service. Even the TVS Apache RR 310 has a higher cost for essential parts than other bikes around this segment. Dominar 400 is not just affordable but, also cares for your pocket at later stages of ownership.

4) Dealer Touch-points & Service Centres

BMW Motorrad has a limited number of dealer touch-points in India. Bajaj Auto, on the other hand, offers Dominar from its long list of dealerships. The difference is incomparable, leaving Dominar 400 as a more practical option. Servicing and other after-sales tasks are easily manageable when choosing Bajaj Dominar 400.

5) Equipment & Components

BMW G310R and Bajaj Dominar, both are single cylinder and offer fuel injection, liquid cooling, 2-channel ABS, wide tires and digital instrument console as standard. The latter comes with additional equipment like a slipper clutch and LED headlight. The front disc brake on Bajaj Dominar 400 is bigger than the BMW G310R.
