The Bajaj Dominar, ever since it was launched, has presented itself as a value for money propositions, competing with motorcycles way much expensive than it. This tourer from Bajaj was recently given an update, making it an even better proposition to own. This revamped model went on sale at an ex-showroom price of INR 1,73,870. However, Bajaj’s official website displays a much lower price, indicating that Bajaj has managed to further lower the price of this machine to make it more affordable and encouraging more and more riders to add this vehicle in their garage. The price of the Dominar now is INR 1,70,138. Do note that both these prices are ex-showroom, Delhi.
In its updated avatar, the Dominar comes with a number of small changes, the sum of which has a huge impact on the motorcycle. The first thing to grab your attention would be the new front suspension unit. Finished in a rather nice colour, the Dominar finally gets a USD setup, which brings it up to mark with the competitors. Also seen is a new exhaust system, which looks sleeker than the one on the current model. Apart from being lighter in weight, this exhaust, combined with the new DOHC setup and the raised compression (12.1 from 11.3) ratio of the engine gives some serious power gains as well. The 373.2 cc, single cylinder engine now generates 40 PS of power, the torque figure, however, remains unchanged at 35 Nm, just 3 PS shy of the KTM Duke 390.

The changes do not end here, the new, improved ergonomics make the bike more comfortable on a long journey. The dual screen setup also comes with a revision, providing you with a lot of information, including fuel efficiency, distance to empty and some more. Unlike earlier, you would not be able to get a non-ABS model as the new government regulation makes it mandatory for bikes to have ABS. There also is a new colour option, Auroral Green on offer, which joins the other colour options – Matte Black, Silver and Glossy Red.
