Bajaj has officially launched the all-new Dominar 400 after a long wait. The 2019 model comes with a host of upgrades and new features and is priced at Rs 1.74 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. The new Bajaj Dominar has already reached the showrooms across India and the deliveries have started too. Here is video from Bajaj Dombivali, Mumbai showroom that shows the delivery of the bike.
The new Bajaj Dominar 400 is around Rs. 10,000 more expensive than the outgoing model but it also adds a host of new features to the bike. Bajaj has also upgraded the engine of the new Dominar that ensures that the bike produces more power. Bajaj officially started taking bookings for the bike a few weeks back and the deliveries have started from today. The video on Rahul Bhattacharya channel shows two bikes – the new Green colour and a black coloured bike being delivered to the customers.
Mr Sarang Kanade, President – Motorcycles, Bajaj Auto Ltd said,
Dominar 400 has been able to create a strong following for itself and has become the preferred choice for city riders and long-distance tourers, alike. Customers have pushed the bike into extreme long distance and challenging geographies with aplomb, which inspired us to strengthen the sports tourer credentials in the new Dominar.
The new Bajaj Dominar 400 gets the same 373.3 cc engine block but it now gets DOHC (Dual Overhead Cam) shafts that increases the overall power of the bike. Compared to the last version of the Dominar 400, the new version produces PS Bhp more.
It now generates a maximum of 40 PS of power but the torque output remains the same at 35 Nm. It still gets the same 6-speed transmission. The DOHC head allows a quicker release of the gases and flow of fresh air in the combustion compartment, which increases the overall power and also allows the engine to rev at a higher rpm.
Apart from the changes in the engine, the new Dominar 400 also gets upside-down telescopic forks replacing the regular forks. The 43mm upside-down forks also make the bike look better and chunkier compared to the previous version. The new Dominar also gets a new twin-barrel exhaust that completely changes the way Dominar sounds and makes the exhaust note much deeper.
The Dominar 400 is a sports tourer bike and Bajaj has added features like bungee cord holders under the seat that will increase the utility of the bike. The Dominar 400 gets two fully-digital instrument consoles. The second instrument console mounted on the fuel tank now has been redesigned and it now shows additional information like the time, gear position, trip information and more. The Dominar 400 is now available only with the ABS variant as the sale of non-ABS vehicles have now been banned in India. Both the wheels get a disc brake set-up and it gets a dual-channel ABS.
