As per a report by Motorbeam, Bajaj will launch the 400cc motorcycle as Dominar and the launch has also been pushed from November to December. According to the latest available, it has been renamed because of some trademark issues with the name Kratos. So, Pulsar CS400 > Pulsar VS400 > Kratos 400 and now the latest name is Dominar. Dominar means ‘to Dominate’ and this is what Bajaj wants to do when they will launch the bike next month in India.

Bajaj VS400 Renamed Again! New Name is Dominar

The 400cc naked power cruiser was unleashed by Bajaj as Pulsar CS400 @ the 2014 Auto Expo in New Delhi. Bajaj Auto has not yet revealed any launch date for the upcoming Dominar 400. They have just hinted at December, making it clear that it won’t be a surprise launch for the new year. The next 30 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.

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.

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.

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 Dominatr. The base non-ABS model is expected to be priced close to Rs 1.60 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).

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.
