New Bajaj Dominar vs Old Bajaj Dominar (Quick Comparison): Bajaj Auto launched the much-awaited 2019 Dominar in India earlier this year with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.74 lakh. After the recent price hikes, the motorcycle is now available for INR 1.90 lakh. The new model has undergone a complete performance transformation in the 2019 variant, gaining just 2kg of weight and taking the overall power output to 40HP.

The 2018 version was good for 35HP of power, criticized by many as the Bajaj’s inability to use the complete output from the 373cc single-cylinder engine. The 2019 Dominar 400 comes with dual exhaust exits, USD front forks with a metallic finish and chrome-finished dual-tone alloy wheels. The six-speed gearbox stays the same but features a different setting for improved in-gear acceleration.

The improved power figure of 40HP is achieved at 8650 rpm while the torque remains similar at 35 Nm but is now achieved at 7000 rpm. The most powerful Dominar of all time, the 2019 variant comes with an updated instrument console with dot-matrix alerts and warning messages in the display. Here is a quick comparison between the new Bajaj Dominar and the old Dominar 400.

Yamaha R15 V3 vs Honda CBR150R (Quick Comparison): Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0 and the new Honda CBR150R are the closest possible rivals for 150cc premium performance segment. The R15 V3 made its official debut in India at the Auto Expo 2018 while the new CBR150R is still under the expected list of products for the Indian market. Honda has a great chance here as they could revive the CBR150R in India and bring some real competition to similarly priced bikes.

As the Yamaha R15 V3 is now available with ABS and priced at INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom), one can expect Honda to place the new model of the CBR150R ABS slightly lower for better competition. Honda has brought the quarter-litre CBR250R back and thus, the chances of CBR150R’s revival are now higher than ever.

We are not sure whether Honda CBR150R will launch in India or not. If it comes at the right time, buyers are suggested to choose one of them according to their needs. Strict speed lovers who ride once a month on track should blindly go for the Yamaha R15 V3 while those who ride for the leisurely purpose should consider the Honda CBR150R as it offers the best power-to-weight ratio in the everyday rpm range. Pricing will further decide the fate of CBR150R in India as higher displacement products are available at impressive prices.

Aprilia GPR 150 vs Yamaha R15 V3 (Quick Comparison): The upcoming Aprilia GPR 150 (RS 150) is a direct rival to the Yamaha R15 V3 ABS. The lightweight motorcycle was seen for the first time in a production-ready guise at a dealer meeting in India, hinting at a launch event at the Auto Expo in February 2020.

The GPR 150 comes with 18HP of claimed power output and weighs lighter in comparison to the R15 V3. On the other hand, Yamaha will have a clear benefit of an extensive dealership network whereas the Piaggio group has more presence in the South Indian states.

Aprilia GPR 150 features USD forks and thus, pricing will stay premium in comparison to the R15 V3. The expected price gap between both the models will stay around INR 10,000.

Aprilia is using the China-based design for the Indian market, leaving behind the popular RS 125-inspired design that is on sale in the European countries. The most powerful bike of its segment, the Yamaha R15 V3 is good for 19.3HP of maximum output. Here is a quick comparison between the R15 V3 and the GPR 150.

Apache RR 310 vs BMW G310R (Detailed Comparison): BMW-Motorrad launched the much-awaited G310R in India last year for INR 2.99 lakh. The motorcycle is powered by a 313cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine, producing 34 HP and 28 Nm of torque. On the other hand, Apache RR 310 produces the same horsepower but, gets a reduction in torque by 0.7 Nm.

The full faired Apache is heavier by 11kg, all thanks to added equipment and fairing on the motorcycle. BMW G310R comes with a different instrument console and also brings standard handlebar and seating into action. Apache RR 310 comes with clip-on handlebar and split seat for a sportier feel. TVS Motor recently upgraded the sportbike with a race-tuned slipper clutch and the brand also launched a new gloss black colour known as ‘Phantom Black’. The updated model of RR 310 is available for INR 2.27 lakh (ex-showroom).
