Bajaj Auto has launched the new Dominar 400 upgrade, priced at Rs 217,000 (ex-showroom Delhi) . The Sports Tourer now gets factory-fitted touring accessories, and is targeted at riders who prefer strong touring essentials. The original Dominar 400, launched in December 2016, was priced at Rs 136,000.
The Dominar 400, now in its new avatar, has a more distinctive front end with an angular and stylish tall visor. Developed with cutting-edge CFD technology, the tall visor is designed to offer good wind-blast protection thus improving rider comfort. It also features aerodynamically sculpted fighter jet-inspired hand guard with flexi-winglets for maximum wind protection. The machine has been designed to make touring even better with a stylish and functional carrier for luggage. The added back stopper ensures maximum pillion comfort.
Its touring-friendly features also include a purposeful and stylish engine bash plate with integrated metal skid plate, which offers good impact protection. The rugged and discreet leg guard offers superior crash protection, and the saddle stay ensures that saddlebags stay securely in place. The Dominar 400 also comes equipped with a neatly integrated navigation stay that allows riders to attach a navigation device. This cast aluminium stay is sturdy and positioned ergonomically to avoid blocking the road view. To add to all this, it now comes equipped with a USB charging port to keep one’s devices charged on the go.
The 2021 Dominar 400 is powered by a liquid-cooled 373.3cc DOHC FI engine which develops 40 PS power and 35 Nm torque. Key highlights include 43mm upside down (USD) forks and twin barrel exhaust. All the accessories, apart from saddle stay, will come as standard on the Dominar 400. The saddle stay will be a paid accessory sold separately by Bajaj Auto dealers at a nominal price. Dominar 400 is available in 2 colour options – Aurora Green and Charcoal Black.
Commenting on the new Dominar 400 launch, Narayan Sundararaman – Head of Marketing, Bajaj Auto, said: “The Dominar 400 has been able to create a strong following for itself and has become the preferred choice for city riders and long-distance tourers, alike. Customers have pushed the bike into long distances and challenging geographies with aplomb, which inspired us to strengthen the sports tourer credentials in the new Dominar. Following interactions with Dominar riders, we have thoughtfully designed and smartly handpicked the touring accessories that don’t just accentuate the style and tour-worthiness of the motorcycle but also amp-up the rider’s safety. These accessories are factory-fitted and will ensure that the riders will have the best touring experience.”
