I want to upgrade from my Bajaj Pulsar 150. I am considering something from the 400c segment. Shall I go for the Dominar 400 or the 390 Duke? I am not an aggressive rider and my main focus is on comfort and riding pleasure. I also want a bike that will be pocket friendly too. Are there any other bikes I should consider?

Between the two, the Dominar 400 will suit your needs better. It is quick, but more comfortable and will cost less to run, both in terms of service costs as well as fuel efficiency. We suggest you also take a look at 250cc machines like the Dominar 250 and the Yamaha FZ 25 - these are the more comfortable and practical bikes in the 250cc segment. Both are much lower in terms of performance, but they will also be cheaper to buy and more affordable to run while still being a good step up from your existing bike.
