Bajaj Dominar 200 India Launch On The Cards? We Tell You All About It

Bajaj Dominar is currently one of the least performing motorcycles in the company’s lineup. Despite being packed with performance and premium features, it still fails to attract high demand.

Speculations suggest that Bajaj might be considering Dominar 200. It would increase the demand for the Dominar brand name and also be one of its kind sub-200cc power cruiser. Bajaj Dominar 400

Introducing a mini-Dominar of 200cc would give the buyers a commuter-friendly power cruiser. We all know maintaining a 400cc bike proves costly and the mileage figures are also not that great.

While the Dominar looks good and comfortable, but a fuel-efficient Dominar would be better, right? So check out what we expect about this power cruiser and get details of its possible launch, price range and specifications.

Bajaj Dominar 200 – Launch Date

Launch Date2019

While we think the Bajaj Dominar 200 will come to the market in 2019. This is because the bike looks quite striking (more on this later) and in concept form, it attracted many eyeballs at previous auto expos.

Bajaj Dominar 200 – Price In India

Standard variant Price*Rs 1,15,000
ABS Variant Price*Rs 1,25,000

*estimated prices ex-showroom Delhi

The Bajaj Dominar 200 will make use of the same engine as the Pulsar RS 200 (derived from KTM 200 Duke/RC 200). Also, it will be detuned a bit in the in the application. To keep costs in check, we think it will come with a single-channel ABS unit.

Bajaj Dominar 200 – Engine Specifications

Engine displacement and type200cc, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, SOHC, single cylinder
Power21 BHP
Suspension (front/rear)Telescopic forks/Nitrox monoshock
Brakes (front/rear)Single 300mm disc with ABS/Single 230mm disc

Like we said earlier, the Dominar 200’s specs will be similar to those of Pulsar RS 200. The difference arises in power and torque figures, which are on the lower side for the smaller Dominar. However, the rest of the components should stay the same. Another thing to note here is that this bike will have retuned suspension. Expect its gear ratios to also be redone.

Bajaj Dominar 200 – Mileage

City Mileage36 kmpl
Highway Mileage40 kmpl

Having a detuned engine in comparison to Pulsar RS 200 means the Dominar 200 will offer better mileage. However, don’t expect it to offer way better mileage over its Pulsar counterpart. This is because the Pulsar RS 200 has a full fairing to help it in the aerodynamics department. The Dominar 200? Well, let’s just wish the wind blast is manageable at highway speeds on this bike.

Bajaj Dominar 200 – Top Speed

Top Speed130 kmph

In its detuned state, the 200cc engine of Dominar 200 should be able to push it to a top speed of 130kmph. Again, the lack of a fairing hurt this bike’s chances of doing higher speeds. The engine’s detuned state is of no help to the bike in this department either.

Bajaj Dominar 200 – Design Review

The elder sibling of the Dominar 200, the Dominar 400, has a universally-likable design. Bajaj touts this design to be inspired by a lion’s stance. The fact is that this bike looks well-proportioned. Since wires have been hidden well, the exposed bits like engine look clean on this bike. Expect this bike to look similar to maintain that familiarity, in terms of design, with its elder sibling. We do think that Bajaj will give it different alloy wheels to ensure it can be differentiated from its elder brother with ease. Also, it may not have LED DRLs to keep costs down. For this very reason, Bajaj may use projector headlamps (Pulsar 220) on the 200 than LED headlamps from the 400.

Bajaj Dominar 200 – Competition

If the bike is launched, it will mainly compete with sub-200 CC sports bikes along with the sub 200 CC cruisers. Within sports bikes, it will face competition with Apache RTR 2004V, Bajaj Pulsar NS200, KTM Duke 200 and more. Within cruisers, it will compete with Avenger Street 220, Avenger Cruise 220 and Suzuki Intruder. However, the pricing will be an advantage here. A lot of the bikes who have a lesser specs engine, compete with Dominar 400 on its pricing. So, the Dominar 200 might have a good hand over here as it will cost anything around Rs 1.10 Lakhs to Rs 1.25 Lakhs.
