    You can buy a dominar and maintain it 4 80k kms, with the cost of new CBR
    His buget is 1.5L. Is the new CBR offered only with ABS?

    It's quite an old bike. Engine is not in a good condition. Mostly due to lack of proper maintenance. Not from my side obviously.

    What?? Dominar costs 1.8 on road. CBR costs 220 odd.
    Which bike under 1.5 lakh has abs?
    Apache 200
    Ns200
    Rs200

    Yes you are. I asked if the Honda is offering the CBR250 with StD and ABS variants as before.

    You assumed I stated that the CBR is the only bike around 1.5L with ABS.

    Clear now?

    New CBR 250 will only come with ABS as they mentioned during Auto Expo launch. The pricing is not out yet, but I doubt if they can afford to keep it above 2L now since FZ 25 (sans ABS) is available for 1.4 OTR. More realistically I am expecting new CBR around 1.7-1.8L OTR. But Honda is Honda - you never know :-)

    I'm leaning towards the dominar after reading the ownership thread and my god it looks fantastic especially now it has golden alloys.
    practicality and daily running is the only thing about fz250.

    Not that long, but expect a few weeks... maybe a couple of months at the most.
    They have showcased it, hope it will be available in the showrooms soon enough.
    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.

    Guys i test rode both of them. Liked low end pull of fz 250 and its flickability. Though dominar is heavier, i was able to maneuver it and loved the way it accelerates. Fz had no noticeable vibes but domi did. Still stuck on this dillema.
