You’d have to shell out a couple of extra grand to bring home a new Dominar 400 as Bajaj has marginally hiked the prices of its most powerful motorcycle yet. The Dominar 400, which was launched at INR 1.36 lakh (standard) and INR 1.50 lakh (ABS), has now been priced at INR 1.38 lakh (standard) and INR 1.52 lakh (ABS) – All prices are ex-showroom Delhi. It’s a marginal price hike and should not affect the sales of the motorcycle by any means.
The new Bajaj Dominar 400 was launched in India on December 15, 2016 while its deliveries commenced from January 10, 2017. The motorcycle received a positive response and the January production of the Dominar was sold out within 14 days of the launch. In fact, the overwhelming traffic caused the Bajaj Auto website to crash post the launch.
What makes the Bajaj Dominar 400 so special? The motorcycle gets muscular and aggresive styling which Bajaj calls Alpha Male Design. The long feature list includes a full LED headlamp with Auto Headlamp On (AHO), optional twin channel ABS and a full digital instrument cluster. The reverse LCD split speedometer divides the display into primary and secondary consoles for a reduced clutter in the cockpit.
