Bajaj is getting ready to dominate the motorcycle market this time, with Dominar 400
Bajaj Auto has dominated the Indian Sports motorcycle market and maintained its leadership for 15 continuous years. Today, Bajaj Auto announced its new brand for premium sports bikers – the Dominar. The Dominar 400, powered by a 373cc triple spark four valve DTS-i engine with fuel injection and liquid cooling, is the first of a series of big muscular bikes for the fast growing premium biking segment.
The Dominar 400 takes its inspiration from the night. When other bikes hesitate to step out and meet the intimidating darkness of the night; the Dominar rises to meet, and master any challenge that the man or nature may offer.
Engineered to dominate, the Dominar 400 comes with a massive perimeter frame and contoured pressed-steel swing arm to deliver a rock-solid ride. The 373.2cc DTS-i engine delivers outstanding linear performance through its smooth six speed transmission and slipper clutch. With 35PS of enormous power and immense 35Nm of torque, the Dominar 400 powerfully propels the rider and pillion at any speed with enough reserve power for add on rush. The advanced liquid cooling system ensures smooth engine performance even on long rides
Dominar 400 has a large 43mm telescopic front fork with a unique dual spring mono suspension to ensure superior handling on any surface. The twin channel ABS empowered 320mm front disc and 230mm rear disc inspire confidence and complete control. Dominar 400 is the only motorcycle in India to have full LED mosaic head lamps with balanced white light and vertical AHO (Automatic Headlights On) to cut through the darkest of nights.
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Eric Vas, President – Motorcycle Business, Bajaj Auto Ltd, said, “Dominar 400 is the biggest motorcycle in its class. It is big yet comfortable, fast yet sure footed, large yet maneuverable, powerful yet easy to control, and premium yet not out of reach for customers. With the Dominar, bikers can finally dominate cities, highways and mountains at any time and under any riding conditions. Domination comes naturally when you ride a Dominar 400.”
The Dominar 400 with ABS comes in 3 colors, Midnight Blue, Twilight Plum and Moon White. Priced at Rs.150,000/- for ABS and Rs. 136,000/- for Disc brake version (Ex-showroom-Delhi).
