Bajaj is all set to launch the updated 2019 Dominar 400. Media ride for the upcoming bike will be happening in couple of days. New pictures of the upcoming Dominar 400 have now surfaced on the internet and as you can see from the image, the Kawasaki Green colour looks dope on the new Dominar 400.
This is not the first time that the upcoming Dominar has been spotted. It was spotted on Indian roads heavily camouflaged many times during different stages of its testing. It was even showcased in one of Bajaj’s Brand commercials.
The new Bajaj gets a lot of changes compared to the existing model. First thing that one will notice is the new paint job. This is the first time that Dominar will be available in this awesome looking Kawasaki Green colour. Other changes on the Dominar will include upside down front forks, larger radiator grille and new set of rear view mirrors.
Another change that we will see on the Dominar 2019 is the twin barrel exhaust. The new exhaust is likely to get a bit throatier than the ongoing version. A spy video of the same went viral on the internet a few months back. It will also get a new instrument cluster that looks similar to the current model but displays much more information than the current version of the Dominar 400.
The secondary instrument panel mounted on the tank of the new Dominar has been updated and shows new information like gear positioning which can be seen from the image.Coming to the mechanical bit, it will continue with the same 373-cc, single-cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel injected engine, but this time it is likely to produce more power. The new Dominar 400 is expected to more vibration free in comparison to the outgoing model. A 6 speed manual gearbox with slipper clutch will also be standard. A dual channel ABS will be available as standard with the 2019 Dominar.
Bajaj will be discontinuing the non-ABS version of Dominar 400 from the market soon when the new safety norms kick in. According to the new rule no two-wheeler manufacturer in the country will be allowed to sell a bike of scooter above 125-cc without ABS.
What this means is that the 2019 Bajaj Dominar will be a pricier than the outgoing model. It is likely to be priced around Rs 1.80 lakh, ex-showroom. The 2019 Bajaj Dominar will face competition from KTM Duke 390, the recently launched Honda CB 300R and will also continue to challenge various Royal Enfield motorcycles in the segment.
