  • Bajaj Dominar 400 Design and Build

    Bajaj Dominar 400

    The Dominar is designed to “dominate the night” and this basically comes from the fact that it has an all-LED headlight which provides great lighting. According to Bajaj, the motorcycle, from the front, is visible from a distance of 1.5 km. The Dominar is designed as a sport-cruiser with the overall design giving a lowered tail section effect while the fuel tank appears to be slightly higher thereby making the rider feel that he’s sitting “in” the motorcycle rather than on it. The fit-n-finish of parts and the build quality is impressive and the Dominar looks like the best bike that Bajaj has put together.

  • Bajaj Dominar 400 Riding Ergonomics

    Bajaj Dominar 400

    Dominar can be called a laid back sportbike. The sits upright, comfortably, holding a flatter single-piece handlebar while the feet rest on foot-pegs placed at a neutral position to avoid a completely commuterish riding stance. The ergonomics are comfortable for city riding and seemingly equally good for long tours. The 43mm front forks and the adjustable rear shocker are quite capable of tackling various kinds of road conditions in the country.

  • Bajaj Dominar 400 Engine

    Bajaj Dominar 400

    This is the most powerful engine built by Bajaj so far. Displacing at 373cc, the liquid-cooled, SOHC, triple spark plug equipped, 4-valves, unit produces 35 PS of power at 8000 RPM and 35 NM of torque at 6,500 RPM. These impressive figures appear on a very usable powerband even in city limits. This means quite a bit of effortless riding in most conditions. Furthermore, the engine is fuel injected which ensures consistent performance and fuel economy including trouble-free starts irrespective the of weather conditions.

  • Bajaj Dominar 400 Transmission

    Bajaj Dominar 400

    The Dominar comes with a 6-speed gearbox delivering overall smooth gear shifts in both up and down directions. The ratios are well spaced to utilize all the available power properly from the engine. Also, this is the first Bajaj motorcycle to come with a slipper clutch – it ensures that the clutch pull remains light and during aggressive down shifts, the rear wheel does not lock up or jitter momentarily thereby maintaining vehicle stability throughout this operation.

  • Bajaj Dominar 400 Braking and Safety

    The Dominar comes with one of the best braking packages in its segment. It’s got a massive 320mm front disc brake, which is the biggest-in-class along with the Mahindra Mojo, and the rear is equipped with a 230mm disc. For the first time, Bajaj has equipped its motorcycle with a dual channel ABS for further safety. However, it can’t be turned off. Moreover, tubeless tyres ensure that they do not deflate instantly in case of a puncture.

  • Bajaj Dominar 400 Mileage

    Triple spark plug technology ensures complete combustion of the air-fuel mixture in the cylinder head while the fuel injection system ensures the right amount of fuel flow depending on the engine speed. All this means that the fuel is not unnecessarily wasted. Moreover, 13 litres of fuel tank capacity is generous enough to guarantee good riding distances in one full tank.
