So, you have around INR 1.4 lakhs to throw around on a motorcycle, but you’re not bitten by the Royal Enfield bug yet. It’s simple. You put your money down on the new Bajaj Dominar 400.
It’s almost a no-brainer isn’t it? Because the Bajaj flagship’s got more power; heaps of it over the Royal Enfield Classic 350, and is definitely a more capable performer; both in the city and on the highway.
It’s even got modern tech like LED headlamps, ABS, a rear disc brake and a slipper clutch, while managing to look pretty neat as well, especially in white.
But not so fast. Royal Enfield has a cult following, and it’s there for a reason. The riding experience at certain speeds is unmatched, and the retro futuristic looks are certainly worth a second look.
They also sound like nothing else on the road, with their characteristic thump reverberating off the concrete jungle or even through the woods making for a cool, greatest hits album of ‘sound of freedom’.
If you’re a hardcore Royal Enfield fanatic, you’d rather not look anywhere else. But if you’re not, but still an open-minded RE lover, the Dominar 400 does look like a tantalizing buy.
On the flip side, both brands don’t exactly have the best reputation when it comes to being reliable. Also, the Royal Enfield vibrates like a humming bird’s wings.
So which one would you rather go for if you’re in the market?
