  • Both the bikes are unfaired and come from the naked sports segment.
  • Both bikes offer upside-down front forks and rear mono-shock as their suspension system.
  • A fully digital instrument console comes with both the bikes.
  • G 310 R has got lighter, yet stronger aluminium wheels on front and back, in place of bulky and weak alloy wheels of Dominar 400 which are prone to breaking even in accidents at low speeds.


According to my personal opinion, it is better to buy BMW G 310 R rather than buying Bajaj Dominar 400. Although Dominar 400 is cheaper than G 310 R by ₹1,00,000 which is a lot of money, it is weaker and bulkier than G 310 R which is simply undesirable in a sports bike, as sports bikes are made for high speeds and reliability. So, it’s better to buy a stronger, lighter sports bike for higher reliability and less damage to the bike and rider’s life in case any mishap occurs.
