Considering switching from a Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X to either a Bajaj Dominar 400 or a Honda CBR250R.
I ride a Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X and I am considering buying a new bike. I have shortlisted the Honda CBR250R and the Bajaj Dominar 400. I am 5ft 6in and weigh 115kg.

AAA - The Honda CBR250R is an outdated product and you may not be a fan of the riding position either. The new Dominar will make for a good upgrade, but since you mentioned the CBR, there is also the option of the new Honda CB300R. It’s a quick, but comfortable motorcycle and you will find the riding position as well as the low seat height to your liking. The rear shock is quite soft on its stock setting, so you may want to bump that up when you take a test ride. But aside from that, there isn’t much to complain about, and if you’re willing to stretch your budget, the CB300R is certainly worth a look.
