Dominar 400 vs Apache 310 – How Are Indian Flagships Performing: FY21 Sales

Dominar 400 vs Apache 310 in terms of sales is not really a big contest but Indian makers producing world class products is a great feat!

For most part of the last two decades, we were limited to a maximum of 200-225cc motorcycles from pure Indian auto makers – TVS, Bajaj and Hero, obviously excluding Royal Enfield, which is in a different league altogether.

But then two of these these makers broke the ceiling and ventured in spaces they had never been – over 300cc displacements. Bajaj introduced the 375cc Dominar 400 in December 2016 and a year later, in December 2017, TVS launched its biggest Apache ever – the Apache RR 310.

Both the makers have utilized these years to improve their flagship products with continuous betterments. Let us have a look at how did the fiscal 2021 go for them in terms of sales.
