Bajaj Auto is yet to officially launch or announce the pricing of the 2019 Dominar but our friends at Thrustzone have managed to snag the pricing of the new motorcycle. The upgraded 2019 Bajaj Dominar is priced at Rs. 1.74 lakhs, ex- showroom Delhi, which makes it about Rs. 10,000 pricier than the outgoing model.
Considering the slew of changes on the new motorcycle, the pricing is quite competitive. Bajaj launched the dual channel ABS equipped Dominar at Rs. 1.50 lakhs, back in 2016. Meanwhile, deliveries of the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 will start soon even as Bajaj dealers across India are accepting bookings for the new motorcycle.
Talking of the various changes that the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 features, it gets mechanical improvements, visual tweaks and feature enhancements. As for mechanical changes, the single biggest change is the new, DOHC engine head, which allows the motor to make a full 5 Bhp additional power. Power and torque putputs of the 2019 Dominar are rated at 40 Bhp-35 Nm, up from 35 Bhp-35 Nm.
Also, another change has been that of swapping the telescopic front forks for upside down units. The upside down front forks offer better shock absorption, especially on bad roads, and also make the front end look a lot more chunkier. Another mechanical change is the new, twin barreled exhaust, which makes for a better exhaust note.
Other changes on the motorcycle include new rear view mirrors, a revised instrument cluster that now reads out more information and a softer monoshock rear suspension for better ride comfort. As for other details, the engine continues to retain four valves, fuel injection and liquid cooling. The gearbox is a six speed unit with a slipper clutch as standard. The Bajaj Dominar 400 continues to weigh a hefty 184 kilograms, which means that it’s quite hefty and substantial. The bike is a sports tourer that’s meant to be be ridden everyday on regular roads, and on highway during the weekends.
Also, Bajaj Auto will offer a range of touring accessories for the 2019 Dominar through its dealerships. These accessories have been developed by Pune-based customization company Autologue. These accessories will not only work on the 2019 Dominar but also on the pre-facelift version. The whole idea behind these accessories – which include a taller front fairing, a high-set mudguard and many such nifty bits – is to make the Dominar a highly capable sports tourer that offers the rider significant amounts of comfort and wind protection.
