Commenting on the Dominar 2019 upgrade, Mr. Sarang Kanade, President – Motorcycles, Bajaj Auto said, “Dominar 400 has been able to create a strong following for itself and has become the preferred choice for city riders and long distance tourers, alike. Customers have pushed the bike intoextreme long distance and challenging geographies with aplomb, which inspired us to strengthen the sports tourer credentials in the new Dominar.”
Significant changes on the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 include improved power output from the same 373.3 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. The motor now gets a DOHC set-up and churns out 39 bhp, 4 bhp more than the older version while peak torque remains the same at 35 Nm. The bike also gets new 43 mm USD front forks replacing the telescopic units that add to the beefy appearance of the motorcycle, while adding to the improved ride quality.
Visually, the bike remains largely the same but gets revised internals for the LED headlamp, and the exhaust has been replaced with the double barrel unit that also makes for a throaty more with heavy bass. In addition, the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 gets a new LCD split screen console with the tank-based secondary screen packing more information including gear position, trip information and more. There are bungee straps tucked under the pillion seat that helps secure gear over long distances, and there are new tankpad decals. The new Dominar 400 is now available in two new colours - Aurora Green and Vine Black, and is offered only in the ABS variant.
