    Buddy to be honest the Duke may be a safer buy as well. The older 390 has proven its worth, and if you want testimony for reliability, simply due to the fact that I myself have read countless travelogues in which the 390 has been all over the country and even to some neighbouring countries, I would not hesitate in vouching for it.

    I recently purchased the Dominar and although in the one month I have had it, I am not facing any issues, I do feel that this bike has a long way to go before proving itself as a viable and reliable touring machine. I had the NS for 3.5 years and toured a lot on it. It never stranded me anywhere, simply because I took care of it. So though Bajaj is not unreliable I would wait and watch if I were you before putting my money down on a tourer whose credentials arent proven.

    I know that last line seems hypocritical, but in all honesty since the past year I have not been touring a lot and the Dominar for me is simply an upgrade from the NS and it has not been acquired for any rigorous touring purposes.

    Hope this helps buddy.
    Thx buddy...

    Hi Aditya,

    I agree with you whole heartedly. I was also fore warned by many "experts" 5 years ago to not put my faith and money in a Bajaj product as it "starts to lose power in 2 years and the whole engine has to be overhauled." I wonder where these rumours started from. Maybe some of the first gen pulsars are to blame for this.

    Anyway unreliable is definitely not something that Bajaj is.
