Bajaj Auto will launch the Dominar 400 in the next few minutes. The most powerful Bajaj motorcycle yet, the Dominar 400 was first showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo in the concept form. Back in the month of August was the first time that the model, then known as the CS400, was spied testing. Following a number of spy images, chase videos and name changes (CS400 > VS400> Kratos 400 > Dominar 400), Bajaj Auto announced the launch of their upcoming 400cc motorcycle late last month. The company had already commenced production of the Dominar 400 prior to this announcement.
Now, let us tell you a few things about the motorcycle. The Dominar 400 you see in the images is not a lot different from the model showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo save for a few changes. The production spec Dominar 400, as compared to the concept form, receives a telescopic fork suspension up-front instead of the USD forks and slightly watered down LED headlamps. The front disc brake too, has now been positioned to the right hand side instead of the left hand side as seen on the concept.
Feature wise, the Dominar 400 comes equipped with segment first full LED headlamps (also a first for any Indian motorcycle), full digital yet split instrument cluster and ABS. The model is likely to be available in two variants, one with a single channel ABS and the top-end variant with dual channel ABS.
The engine of the Dominar 400 will be closely related to the KTM’s 373.2 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, but would employs Bajaj’s patented triple-spark technology. Reports suggest that the model will come in two different states of tune, with the base model expected to produce 35 BHP while the top-end variant is likely to produce more than 40 BHP. These engine will come mated to a six speed transmission.
Although official prices for the model will be revealed soon, speculations suggest that the model will be launched with a price tag of INR 1.8 lakh for the base variant and INR 2.2 lakh for the top-end variant (both, on-road, Delhi).
