We have seen this collaboration attempt by two-wheeler manufacturers. KTM was the first brand that was introduced to the Indian market by Bajaj. Now that the competition and market are growing, premium brands have shown interest in the market.

The growing interest has resulted in two big brands collaborating with Indian brands to create bikes that can sustain in the Indian market.

In this blog, you will find two brands that have collaborated but are now competing in the same segment. So without any further delay, let’s take a look at the Triumph’s Speed 400 and Bajaj Dominar 400 comparison to understand what both brands have to offer.

Bajaj-Triumph bikes in India

Bajaj is one of the prominent two-wheeler manufacturers in India. Bajaj has collaborated with Triumph to manufacture the Speed 400. It has become the only manufacturer for producing bikes for 3 brands including Bajaj itself.

Bajaj taking control of manufacturing would make it a little confusing for every enthusiast on which bike should be picked. So just to clear the air, below is a brief comparison between both bikes.

Bajaj Dominar 400 Vs Triumph Speed 400

Bajaj has done a great job for Triumph in manufacturing a premium quality bike for a very competitive price. Both the Dominar 400 and Speed 400 stand at an ex-showroom price of 2.33 lakh.

Though there are a few key differences between these bikes, that can impact the decision-making of customers. So let’s start with the differentiation by design.


Triumph Speed 400

The Bajaj Dominar 400 when launched had a great response due to its new gen looks. However, with time and no new changes in the bike, the market has adopted other bikes in terms of looks and design.

On the other side, the Triumph Speed 400 is newly launched with a very unique design that no brand in the market offers. The neo-retro look with all the latest advancements makes it a great deal in terms of design.

Though, with ever-changing design language, the brand has to keep working to improve it for the customers. If failed, the result could be similar to the Dominar 400.

Comparing both these bikes over design won’t do justice. Though it would boil down to personal preferences. So it’s upto you whether a retro-neo or a sportier cruiser.


Bajaj Dominar 400

Now comes the main difference, the performance. Irrespective of the looks and design, performance is the key factor that would affect decision-making. Though both these bikes offer pretty similar numbers on paper.
