Bajaj has officially announced the launch of their much-awaited and first entry in the sub-500 cc motorcycle segment, the Dominar 400. The first commercial motorcycle was produced on 18th November 2016, so it is safe to say that it will be available for delivery as soon as the price is announced. The price is expected to be under Rs 2 lakh, ex-showroom.

Confirming the launch, Eric Vas, President (Motorcycle Business), Bajaj Auto said, “We are delighted to announce the name of the most anticipated brand from the Bajaj Auto stable. The Dominar 400 has already created a lot of excitement amongst bikers, which is befitting for what’s going to be one of the most path breaking products in the history of the Indian motorcycle industry.”

The Dominar 400 which was earlier speculated to be christened as the Kratos will be powered by a 373 cc, liquid cooled, single cylinder, fuel-injected engine that should dish out 41 hp of power and 30 Nm of torque. It will be mated to a 6-speed transmission and is also expected to have ABS in the higher variants. The engine is based on the 373 cc unit from KTM but will feature a different ignition technology among others. In addition, the engine on the Dominar 400 will feature a more relaxed nature than on the KTM motorcycles.

The Dominar 400 has been publicised by Bajaj as a cruiser sport motorcycle with wide handlebars and a stance more inclined towards comfort for long hauls. A number of spy shots over the internet also suggest that this motorcycle will have a dual pod instrument cluster, disc brakes on both ends, upside down forks upfront and a monoshock at the rear.

According to the Indian bike maker, the Dominar moniker will carry forward a new brand that will be synonymous with powerful and premium motorcycles and will feature newer motorcycles with similar characteristics.

                  The front and head light don't look impressive for a bike like this. There's no road presence,unlike Mahindra Mojo.
