Bajaj Dominar ADV 400 from Autologue Customs looks set for adventure

The Bajaj Dominar is the flagship motorcycle from the Indian motorcycle manufacturer. The Dominar is marketed as a power cruiser but custom house Autologue Design has transformed one of these flagships into a crazy ADV that looks at home on the dirt track.

While the Dominar in the image shared by Autologue Design is a stealthy black ADV, the real bike used by Autologue crew member Popeye the Biker, is actually a bright red bike with Gold Wheels. However, despite the bright paint job, the bike itself looks like something that would look at home in the outdoors.

The changes to the Dominar, which is named Olive, are quite game-changing and make this cruiser look more like an off-roading bruiser. The changes start up front with the larger front windscreen which looks like it would be right at home on a dirt bike.

The headlamp unit has been raised using headlight raisers from Illuva.in. The headlight has been raised due to the higher-placed front fender to add to the ADV look. Also present up front are white handlebar guards, which provide a contrast to the bike’s colour palette. The tank also features pads to rest your thighs.

At the rear, the changes continue thanks to the raised ADV style rear fender. However, the biggest change at the back is the addition of the large storage box at the rear, which looks rather cool and should be very useful on long road trips and adventures off the beaten path.

Mechanically though, Olive, the Dominar is like every other Dominar 400 on the nation’s streets today. Powering Olive is the 373cc single cylinder engine borrowed from the KTM 390 Duke. The fuel injected, triple-spark, 4-valve DTS-i engine produces 34.5 Bhp @ 8,000 rpm and 35 Nm of torque @ 8,500rpm that is sent to the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch setup. The regular Dominar 400 weighs in at 182 kg but no details have been released about the additional weight these modifications add to the motorcycle.

Also, if you’re looking for something less ADV, Autologue will sell you the Domivel body kit for Bajaj’s flagship power cruiser.
