Bajaj had recently presented the updated 2019 version of their sports tourer Dominar 400 and now there are reports coming in that the deliveries for the updated bike have started at a an ex-showroom Delhi price on Rs. 1.74 lakhs. The new update brings in a lot of changes for the company’s flagship sports-tourer in the market. As compared to the last-generation, the new Bajaj Dominar 400 is Rs. 10,000 pricier.
On the launch of new updated Dominar 400, the president of motorcycle division for Bajaj Auto Limited, Sarang Kanade had said,
Dominar 400 has been able to create a strong following for itself and has become the preferred choice for city riders and long-distance tourers, alike. Customers have pushed the bike into extreme long distance and challenging geographies with aplomb, which inspired us to strengthen the sports tourer credentials in the new Dominar.
As far as the engine department goes, the new Dominar will still feature the same KTM 390 derived 373 cc engine with fuel injection and liquid cooling. The new power output for the 2019 Dominar is 40 Bhp and 35 Nm. The engine also has dual camshafts instead of the older single camshaft unit. However, major upgrades that are sure to please prospective owners will be the increase in power and lower level of vibrations on the new Dominar.
2019 Bajaj Dominar features new upside down forks, a major update from the last gen model of the sports tourer. Among other major noticeable changes on the new version of Dominar are a changed set of rear view mirrors, a twin barrel exhaust, and a bigger radiator grille for faster cooling of the engine. Talking about the new exhaust, it is supposed to address one of the major gripes of customers – exhaust note. This new version with its twin barrel setup is expected to have a throatier and gruntier sound, something that the customers want from a 350+ cc bike.
Bajaj Auto will also take care of customer’s customization needs and the company is set to offer touring accessories for the bike that have been especially developed for the bike by Pune-based customization firm Autologue. The company is also offering additional features such as bungee cord holders under seat to keep the bike true to sports tourer branding. The new model will have the same instrument cluster as the older one, however the major upgrade here will be the availability of a lot more handy information. Talking of the other display on the bike, the instrument cluster on the fuel tank too has been updated to show more information than before. Getting to other mechanical bits, standard dual channel ABS and 6-speed manual gearbox featuring slipper clutch assist are present as well.
