After what appears like an unfathomable length of time, Bajaj Auto has at long last propelled the Dominar 400 at a dumbfounding cost of Rs 1.36* lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). This energizing, mid-limit, control cruiser, is certain to excite numerous Indian devotees.
The Dominar 400 seems, by all accounts, to be styled along the lines of the Pulsar NS 200 and the Ducati Diavel. In spite of the fact that it seems, by all accounts, to be an expanded adaptation of the NS 200, the tank styling and genuinely squat position are apparently roused from Ducati’s energy cruiser, the Diavel.
The naturally planned, and rather threatening looking mosaic headlamp is a full LED unit with Auto Headlamp On capacity (AHO). There is a part instrument bunch, with the completely computerized one mounted on the handlebars, and the other on the tank; a setup like the one seen on the Ducati. The conservative however far reaching computerized instruments incorporate a tachometer, speedometer, fuel gage, an odometer and excursion meters. It is furnished with great quality, normally Bajaj lit up switchgear, agreeable palm holds, an agreeable arrangement of levers and KTM Duke-like mirrors.
The Dominar 400 accompanies a pillar sort edge outline, with 43mm adaptive forks at the front and a customizable monoshock at the back. It is fitted with a 13-liter fuel tank, a 320mm single plate brake in front and a 230mm unit at the back, and gets double channel ABS on the completely stacked variation (Rs 1.5 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi). The power cruiser rides on 110/70 R17 and 150/60 R17 front and back wheels shod with MRF Revz C1 elastic. Tipping the scales at 182kg, the Dominar 400 is a bit on the heavier side.
The Dominar 400 games the same 373cc,fuel-infused, fluid cooled, single-chamber motor as the KTM 390 arrangement, and is mated to a six-speed gearbox that accompanies a shoe grip as standard. The engine, in any case, has been tuned to meet the bicycle’s prerequisites as a cruiser, so yield is lower than that of the KTM family. It utilizes a finger-adherent camshaft 4-valve-per-barrel setup alongside Bajaj’s triple start plug innovation, and makes a respectable 35hp of force at 8,000rpm, and 35Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. Bajaj claims that the Dominar can go from 0-100kph in 8.23sec and achieve a top-speed of 148kph.
Appointments have begun for the Dominar 400 at Rs 9000, with conveyances set to start in January 2017. We are very eager to get our hands on the bicycle and test it in true conditions. So watch out for our thorough audit.
In spite of the fact that the Dominar 400 has no immediate adversaries, its sticker price places it in the line of sight of the Royal Enfield Himalayan and Mahindra Mojo. Here’s the manner by which its ex-showroom, Delhi value contrasts and those of its nearest rivals.
