7 Must Know Facts about Bajaj Dominar

1) New Production Name

The 400cc naked power cruiser was unleashed by Bajaj as Pulsar CS400 @ the 2014 Auto Expo in New Delhi. But the name was changed to Kratos right before it was expected to be launched in November this year. But now as per the latest details available, Bajaj has decided that the bike won’t be sold under Kratos brand name. The company has officially named the bike as Dominar 400.

2) Dominar Stands For?

The biggest query in every Bajaj fan’s mind is the meaning of Dominar. Well, Dominar is a derivation from a Spanish word which means “to excel or exceed in power” and this is what Bajaj is planning to do with the launch of Dominar, to dominate the Indian market below INR 2 lakhs.

3) Launch Date

Bajaj Auto has officially announced that Dominar 400 will be launched in India on December 15. The next 10 days are very crucial for those who are strict Bajaj fans and even more for those who will join the Dominar club with the newcomer as their first bigger capacity motorcycle.

4) Technical Specs

The engine on the new Dominar 400 is 373.2 cc unit producing 34.51 Bhp @ 8000 rpm. The value is quite low when compared to 390 Duke and RC 390 while the inside game is different. The Dominar has been made in a cruiser style, thereby limiting the maximum power at a lower rpm while the 390 twins produce 43 BHP @ 9000-9500 rpm. The maximum torque in the case of Dominar is still unknown, hinting at a healthy figure at a lower rpm.

5) Gross Vehicle Weight

The 332 kg of gross vehicle weight includes the weight of motorcycle with all fluids, full fuel tank, rider, pillion and a definite amount of cargo. We can expect the production ready weight of above 160 kg for the Bajaj Dominar. The exact values would soon be available on the launch event.

6) Expected Price & Variants

The Dominar will be offered in both ABS equipped and non-ABS variant. The price of both the models may differ by Rs 15,000-20,000 which further depends upon the single or dual channel ABS being used on the Dominar. The base non-ABS model is expected to be priced close to Rs 1.60 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).

7) LED Lights and Fuel Tank Mounted Display

The Bajaj Dominar in its production form will use LED lights (1st in this price range), and would be equipped with 2 LCDs (like Ducati Diavel), one in-between the handlebar and second mounted on the fuel tank. The loss of USD forks from the concept version may help the bike maker place the Dominar 400 in a better price bracket.
