    I'm looking to buy the Dominar 400. I had a few queries.

    1. Is the bike reliable and comfortable for city traffic like Bangalore? I'm looking to commute from office to home and vice versa of around 40kms.
    2. How is the service quality? In Bangalore which service centre is good?
    3. What about the bike issues one is facing? I've read a few issues like starting problem and vibrations.

    I'll be switching over from a KTM RC 200.
    Since I'm planning to keep the bike for at least 3 years I need to know whether it is worth it. If not, any other options?
    Yes i feel the bike is very comfortable in traffic here in Delhi. And it is very easy to maneuver and get into tighter gaps. So far i haven't face any heating problem.
    Service quality here in delhi is very acceptable.
    There is major issue with any bike it dose have the normal big capacity single cylinder buzz present from 4k rpm onwards, but it is not a deal breaker. Post ecu update the new map has restricted the rpm at 8.5k and also there is lil sluggishness in acceleration post update. New bikes are coming with the updated ecu so.
    Since u are shifting from RC you would find it More comfortable to ride in city and relaxed and compose at highway. Your pillion would also appreciate the comfort.
    But you would miss the wildness of KTM.
    In city u can do relaxed riding at 3.5krm in 5th it is very relaxed till 60kmph and in sixth ,post ecu update i can cruise at 3.5k rpm at speeds of 65 to 70kmph i a very relaxed manner. On highway i have done 130kmph at 7k rpm and the engine is not at all stressed. One can comfortably do 100 to 120kmph without any fuss. Breaks are also very good with assurance from ABS.
    I advise u to have a proper td , as few guys i met who have shifted from d390 are missing the pickup and wildness of KTM but appreciating the comfort.

    Ha ha ha i weigh only 60kgs and 5.4ft height. I have no such issues . Weight of the bike can only be felt at standstill or while trying to lift it , i mange tight parking slots by getting off the bike and pushing it in and out. On the road i can easily push it in gaps which i do not enter even on the avenger.
    Weight is only a mind thing and you would get ahang of it.
    WILLIAMS and IamAditya like this.

    Must be forks getting compressed so much, it must have hit the triple trees, just check for any fork oil leaks.

    The best part is that, when you upgrade to a 600-800cc bikes.

    They would weigh around 200kg.
    Dominar400 owners would feel more at home compared to guys coming from under 150kg bikes. 😀

    Cheers.

    True. Dominar is truly a stepping stone to bigger things.

    Street triple Dry weight is 168kgs so with fuel and all oils it should be same as dominar.

    Best solution to deal with heavy weight of bike is to run the bike more so that it can lose some weight. Early morning runs are best. Bike would lose some in form of fuel and rider would gain in form of pranthas😂😂
