    Honda is hilarious. They haven't even given us the new 286 cc engines! I There are rumours that the CBR would be available after 2 months. Those new stickers need to be carefully applied.


    I've read here that the FZ25 has high maintenance.
    manishh and Deathwing like this.

    Same old design with stickers and LED unit.

    Could FZ maintanence be higher than that of dominar?

    I haven't heard first hand, but it would be similar, I reckon. The fz25 needs FI cleaning for regular intervals.

    Is upgrading to 250cc from 160cc worthwhile or will i regret not buying the dominar in the long run?

    The Dominar is only half a second faster than the CBR to 100 kmph. You will save a lot of fuel and have easy DIY maintenance if you pick the CBR250. Get Dominar only for ABS.

    I meant about the fz 250. I can't wait as long as honda plans to release cbr.

    Have the cash? Go for Dominar ABS. Way better bike than the FZ25 IMHO.

    Why do you need a new bike? More speed? The unicorn is good enough for 100 kmph touring. If I were you I would stick to the unicorn for now, stack some more cash, then get a better bike. Is there any pressing reason you cannot wait?

    Check the torque. No one does 0 to 100 every day. It’s 30 to 100 and 50 to 100 are more important in real world. Dominar eats CBR in this.

    You can buy a dominar and maintain it 4 80k kms, with the cost of new CBR
