Indian two-wheeler manufacturer Bajaj Auto is planning to expand its export market. CarandBike reports that the company will soon export motorcycles to Australia.
The report states that Bajaj will export its flagship motorcycle, the Dominar 400 to Australia. Marketed as a sports cruiser, the motorcycle is targeted towards long-distance touring riders.
Initially, Bajaj had aimed to retail around 10,000 to 12,000 units of Dominar 400 in India. But the company has only managed to clock around 1,500 units per month. But with the festive season, Bajaj hopes to sell 2,000 units per month.
Bajaj is already exporting the Dominar 400 to its existing export markets which include South East Asia and Latin America. Despite the slump in domestic sales, the exports have been growing at a rapid rate.
The Dominar 400 draws power from a 373cc fuel injected, liquid-cooled engine sourced from KTM. The engine produces 34.5bhp of power and 35Nm of peak torque. The engine is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox.
The sports cruiser motorcycle also features slipper clutch, fully digital instrument cluster and a secondary display on the fuel tank and LED headlamp. On the safety front, the Dominar 400 gets dual-channel ABS as an option.
The Dominar 400 has not been performing as expected by Bajaj Auto. Now, the company plans to export the motorcycle to Australia which will expand its export markets. With the festive season going on, Bajaj believes that the sales will improve in the Indian market.
