Bajaj Auto is all set to introduce the 2018 iteration of its flagship offering, the Dominar 400 with several cosmetic updates.
The 2018 Dominar 400 has started arriving at dealerships and TeamBHP has spotted the red variant of the motorcycle at a Bajaj dealership in Dehradun.
The 2018 Bajaj Dominar 400 will be offered in two colour options - Glossy Red and Electric Blue. Apart from that the other prominent change on the 2018 Dominar 400 is the golden alloy wheels. It gives a fresh look to the sports cruiser which was launched a year ago.
The 2018 Dominar 400 also features black engine casing, perimetre frame and footpeg assembly. Apart from that, all the design elements of the sports cruiser remain the same. The new colour schemes render a fresh look to the motorcycle.
The Dominar 400 will continue to draw power from the KTM-sourced 373cc fuel injected, liquid-cooled engine producing 35bhp and 35Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox assisted by a slipper clutch for smooth downshifts, without locking the rear wheel.
The Dominar 400 also comes with premium features such as fully-digital instrument cluster, secondary LCD display on fuel tank for tell-tale lights and dual-channel ABS. Bajaj also retails the non-ABS version of the Dominar 400 with a reduced price tag.
To price the Dominar 400 aggressively, Bajaj has equipped the motorcycle with conventional telescopic forks as opposed to the inverted forks seen on the concept model. The rear suspension unit is a monoshock with adjustable pre-load.
Currently, Bajaj also exports the Dominar 400 to several foreign markets and a chunk of Dominar's sales comes from the export market. In India, the sports cruiser has not been selling as expected by the company. Bajaj had aimed to retail around 10,000 units of motorcycle per month in the country but has not been able to achieve the target.
The Dominar 400 transformed the performance motorcycle segment in India with its excellent value for money preposition. The Dominar 400 came with several first-in-segment features and powerful engine. Now, Bajaj has given a makeover to the sports cruiser by offering two new colour schemes and cosmetic updates.
