Facelifted Bajaj Dominar 400
The new Dominar comes with a unique front fascia. It, now, comes with a beautifully sculpted wind protecting glass panel along with the hand knuckles. The latter is designed in such a way that it doesn’t restrict the movements of the rider. There are underlying green-themed accents on the wind visor and knuckle bars. The fuel tank remains as sharply sculpted as before. There is an addition of the knee protecting rod which also extended to the radiator. This could be of immense value in the case of the bike falling off. The engine underbelly area is also protected by a sturdy metal plate. The twin-exhaust setup looks as stunning as before. The taillamps are neatly tucked beneath the split-seat set up with a little support for the pillion rider. There are two digital instrument displays for all sorts of information for the rider. There is also the incorporation of a USB slot.
The Bajaj Dominar 400 continues to come with the 373 cc liquid-cooled engine with DOHC setup which churns out 40 hp and 35 Nm of peak power and torque respectively. This engine is complemented by a slip and assist type 6-speed transmission for smooth gearshifts in hard acceleration and deceleration. The front features 43 mm USD forks and monoshock absorbers at the rear. Dominar comes with a dual-channel ABS with a 320 mm disc at the front and a 230 mm disc at the rear. It comes with 17-inch machine alloy wheels with 110 profile at the front and 150 at the rear. The current ex-showroom prices of the Bajaj Dominar 400 start at Rs 2.12 lakh.
