Bajaj Auto recently launched the Dominar 400 with prices starting at INR 1.36 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi). While the media rides are scheduled to take place next month, a YouTube user has uploaded a video of the Dominar 400 claiming to achieve its top speed. The same channel also features a video of the Dominar 400 going against the KTM Duke 390.
As seen in the video, the Dominar 400 achieves an unofficial top speed of 167 kmph as opposed to Bajaj Auto’s pessimistic claim of 148 kmph. The Dominar 400 draws power from a 373.2 cc triple spark DTS-i, liquid cooled, fuel injected, single cylinder engine capable of producing 35 PS at 8000 rpm and 35 Nm of torque at 6500 rpm. The engine, mated to a six speed gearbox with a slipped clutch, enables the Dominar to accelerator to 100 kph from a standstill in a swift 8.23 seconds (claimed).
A few highlights of the Dominar 400 include a full LED headlamps with Auto Headlamp On (AHO) feature, dual channel ABS, a fully digital yet split instrument cluster, 13 litre fuel tank and 17 inch diamond cut alloy wheels. Bajaj claims that the operating altitude of the Dominar 400 is rated at 0-18,380 feet above the sea level. The dual channel ABS setup claims to stop the motorcycle from 100-0 kmph in 9 seconds and within 46.19 meters.
