Mechanically, the 2018 Dominar 400 remains the same. The motorcycle draws power from the same KTM-sourced 373.3cc single-cylinder, fuel injected, liquid-cooled engine producing 34.5bhp and 35Nm of torque. The engine is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox assisted by a slipper clutch.

Bajaj Auto manufactures the Dominar 400 at its Chakan production facility. The company also exports the Dominar 400 to several foreign markets. In fact, the demand for the motorcycle is quite high in the export markets. With the launch of the 2018 edition, Bajaj aims to boost the sales of the Dominar 400 in India.
The Bajaj Dominar 400 has been a game-changing product in the Indian market when it was initially launched in the country in 2016. But the motorcycle failed to deliver the expected sales numbers in India. The Dominar 400 is doing well in the export markets. Now, with the launch of new colours, Bajaj expects the motorcycle to attract the Indian buyers.
