Bajaj Dominar 400 vs Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Twin specifications comparison

If you think value-for-money performance motorcycle, then for the longest time, the KTM 390 Duke held on to that mantle. However, with Bajaj introducing the Dominar 400 in 2017, things took a turn. The Dominar 400 was the undisputed champ for that throne for a little more than a year. However, in late 2018, Royal Enfield threw its trump card, the Interceptor 650 twin. The Interceptor 650, a twin cylinder bike, retails for less than Rs 3 lakh on-road.After the update it received a month ago, the new Bajaj Dominar 400 has become a bit costly but is excellent value for money. However, think of it. If you are putting in roughly 70k more, you’re not only getting a more powerful machine but also a twin cylinder unit. Bajaj reliability though is deemed better than that of RE’s. Given the buzz in the market, the new 650 twins have had less troubles than other recent RE launches. Which one should you go for? Our quick spec comparison out here should help you with it.
