The Bajaj Dominar 400 went on sale earlier this month. With a starting price of just Rs 1.36 Lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi), the new Bajaj flagship promises to bring performance biking closer to the masses. The Dominar 400 is powered by a 373.3 cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine that churns out 35 PS-35 Nm. It comes mated to a 6-Speed Manual Transmission. Another highlight is the bike’s slipper clutch. The new Bajaj Dominar 400 has a claimed top speed of 148 KMPH. However, its speedo-indicated top speed could be around 170 KMPH! Here’s our post on details such as Bajaj Dominar 400 Top Speed, 0-100 KMPH timing and specifications. Also See- Pulsar RS400.

|Speedo-indicated Top Speed||167 KMPH|
The Dominar 400 borrows its engine from the Duke 390. However, for the Dominar 400, this 373.3cc engine delivers lesser power and torque. The D390 is capable of hitting a top speed of more than 160 KMPH. The Dominar 400, however, has a claimed top speed of 148 KMPH. But if the above image is anything to go by, the speedo-indicated top speed could be in the vicinity of 165-170 KMPH. Of course, ‘speedo-error’ comes into play here. We believe the Dominar 400 is capable enough to hit a true top speed of 145 KMPH.
Bajaj Dominar 400 0-100 KMPH Timing
|True 0-100 KMPH Timing||8.50 Seconds|
|Claimed 0-100 KMPH Timing||8.23 Seconds|
The KTM 390 Duke has a 0-100 KMPH timing of 5.50 seconds. In comparison, the Dominar 400 has a claimed 0-100 KMPH timing of 8,23 seconds. The huge disparity is courtesy of the de-tuning the engine has received for its application in the Dominar 400. In real world conditions, the Bajaj Dominar 400 0-100 KMPH timing should be around 8.5 seconds. This still makes the Dominar 400 the quickest Bajaj bike ever.
