Bajaj Dominar 400 is the fastest & most powerful bike from the Pune-based motorcycle manufacturer.

Bajaj Auto, the homegrown automaker had launched the Bajaj Dominar 400 in December 2016. After getting a positive response from buyers, the sales of the motorcycle has witnessed a constant decline. In a bid to improve its sales, Bajaj Auto has launched the Matte Black edition of the Dominar 400. This new colour will give this power cruiser a bolder and macho image. Now, the bike is available in four paint jobs namely Moon White, Midnight Blue, Matte Black and Twilight Plum. Save for the new colour, the bike remains unchanged.

Beside this new edition, due to GST, Bajaj Auto has increased the prices of this flagship motorcycle in India. The motorcycle was launched at an introductory price of Rs 1.36 lakh for standard model and Rs 1.50 lakh for ABS model. Before this price hike, Bajaj had increased the prices of the motorcycle for a couple of times. The motorcycle prices were first raised by Rs 2,000 in April, followed by another increase of Rs 999 on both disc and ABS trims. The two-wheeler above 350cc class will attract an additional cess of 3%, which has forced Bajaj to hike the price of Dominar 400 by Rs 2,000.

The ABS variant is now priced at Rs 1.55 lakh, while the non-ABS model is tagged at Rs 1.41 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). As a reminder, the Dominar 400 forayed into the sub-400cc segment in December 2016 after a long wait followed by its display (in concept form) at the 2014 Auto Expo. With this power cruiser, Bajaj not only tapped into the sub-400cc space, but it also introduced its new brand Dominar which it envisages expanding in the coming years. The Pune-based maker has already started exporting this naked streetfighter to select overseas markets. Design inspiration for the bike comes from the Pulsar NS 200. Featuring a butch stance, the cruiser is claimed to offer best of the both worlds-comfort of a cruiser and ruggedness of a naked streetfighter.

The Dominar 400 is also the most powerful Bajaj bike in the country. It is powered by a 373.3cc single-cylinder liquid cooled FI engine that produces 35PS and 35Nm of torque. Power will be transmitted to the rear wheels via a 6-speed gearbox. It is also the most affordable motorcycle to offer a slipper clutch. The new entrant from Bajaj has no direct rival, but its aggressive pricing puts it in crosshairs of Royal Enfield Himalayan and Mahindra Mojo.

This power cruiser is available in two avatars – ABS and Non-ABS. The model was launched at an introductory price of Rs 1.36 lakh for non-ABS model and Rs 1.50 lakh for the ABS equipped variant. Since its launch in December 2016, Bajaj Auto has increased the prices of this motorcycle for 3 times. The latest hike is due to the implementation of the Goods and Service Tax.

Now, the ABS version is priced at Rs 1.55 lakh while the non-ABS model costs Rs 1.41 lakh. All the prices are ex-showroom Delhi. Read More – 2017 Bajaj Pulsar 220 Price & Other Details

    December 11, 2016

    I’m fully satisfied with this bike when I see .but I think it should be modified on it’s design of rear.The middle to front view is absolutely fantabulous even at any angle to see but the major thing is the rear portion. However hats off to the designer.
