Bajaj has announced a price hike on the Dominar 400 by Rs 999. Prices for both the trims - disc brake and ABS - will be affected by this hike. The Dominar 400 was first launched in India in December 2016 at an introductory price of Rs 1.36 lakh (ex-showroom). It is notable that the Dominar 400 has undergone a price hike of Rs 2000 in the month of April already. Including the recent increment, the power cruiser is now priced at Rs 1.39 lakh for the non-ABS trim and Rs 1.53 lakh for the trim with a dual channel ABS.
The Dominar 400 became the most affordable motorcycle to feature a slipper clutch and also a LED headlamp with AHO (automatic headlamp on). Bajaj have pitched the Dominar as a power cruiser, which gets a sporty but relaxed riding stance.
It is powered by a 373.3cc single-cylinder engine that makes 34.5 bhp at 8000 rpm and 35 Nm of torque at 6500 rpm, and is mated to a six-speed gearbox assisted by slipper clutch. It is the fastest, most powerful motorcycle that Bajaj produces. It gets a standard 43 mm telescopic fork up front and a multi-step adjustable monoshock at the rear. The motorcycle weighs 182 kg and has a 13-litre fuel tank.
The Dominar 400 has gathered itself a hefty fan following. It did also bite into Royal Enfield's sales numbers as several Bullet and Classic enthusiasts switched allegiance to the 400cc motorcycle.
