Bajaj Pulsar CS400 (Dominar 400) Mileage
The Bajaj Dominar 400 Mileage could be roughly 30-35 kmpl. The lower (than 390 Duke) power should have led to better mileage. Official figures are not available yet.
The Bajaj Pulsar Dominar 400 has a world-class design. Seemingly inspired from the very tasty Ducati Diavel, the D400 has enough set your pulse racing. The D400 looks every bit a bigger sibling of the 200NS. The front facade is really aggressive and boasts of a large headlamp with LED fixtures. The production-spec model, however, misses out on the concept’s chunky upside-down front forks. Also, while the RS200 gets clip-on handlebars, the Bajaj Pulsar CS400 makes do with a conventional tubular handlebar to carry a street fighter image. The CS400 gets an all-digital instrument cluster which offers a speedometer, tachometer, odometer, fuel level, gear shift indicator and many tell tale signs.
In another deviation from the concept, the Dominar 400 gets a split-seat. Bits like a sculpted fuel tank and tank extensions along with stylish alloy wheels go on to further enhance the design. Unlike most other bikes on sale in India, the Pulsar VS400 does not get any flashy body graphics. Instead, the exterior is a combination of the base colour complemented by blacked out body parts.
The CS400 will be rivaled by the likes of Mahindra Mojo 300 and Royal Enfield Classic on one end, and by its own cousin, the KTM 390 Duke, on the other. Also, while not a direct rival, the CS400 is also likely to lock horns with the rRoyal Enfield Himalayan 410cc adventure motorcycle.
The Dominar 400 could also rival the upcoming BMW G310R.
