Bajaj’s very own power cruiser, Dominar 400 is a hit amongst the youth. Truly a beast, it wins over many cruisers in its segment. Lately, there have been rumours about Bajaj Dominar 200 is in works. Suited for daily commuting, it is likely to get the same body like its elder sibling but with less power and features.
The older sibling takes the template of Ducati Diavel and the idea of using it to make a smaller bike has worked wonders. However, Bajaj had more help than just in the design department. All it had to was to make the motor more civilised for daily use. Meanwhile, there have been some speculations regarding Bajaj Dominar 200 in the offing. Dominar 400 is a cruiser, very useful for adventure or long touring. For a more daily life bike with the same design, The 200 is a different beast in that respect. It is likely to get the same body but with lesser features and specifications than its older sibling. The bike is expected to launch in this year with a price tag of around Rs 1.1 Lakh (ex-showroom). Can it be as successful as the latter bike? Let’s find out by taking a look at Bajaj Dominar 200 price, specifications, features and other details. Do keep in mind that the launch may take place in early 2019 at a price of Rs 1,10,000.

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 Launch Date
|Launch Date||Early 2019|
While we think the Bajaj Dominar 200 will come to the market in early 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 Specifications
|Engine displacement and type||200cc, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, SOHC, single cylinder|
|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 Mileage||36 kmpl|
|Highway Mileage||40 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 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 Speed||130 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-likeable 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.
