Bajaj Dominar 2019 is the flagship motorcycle of the homegrown motorcycle manufacturer and made quite a few headlines when introduced in 2016. Bajaj placed this bike against the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and also initiated a high decibel campaign, including TV commercials and OOH advertisements. The power cruiser tried to pitch itself as a much-advanced motorcycle than the RE Classic 350, which was true in all means as well but failed to fulfil the sales number expected by the homegrown brand. Though unable to wreck the sales number, Bajaj Dominar 400 made its mark in the segment and got praised by rider communities for its engine refinement level and characteristics of a true sub-500 cc cruiser.

The motorcycle witnessed a number of mid-life updates since its launch in 2016 and now, Bajaj Auto is all set to launch the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400. As per the spy shots and the specifications surfaced online, Bajaj has done quite a few cosmetic and mechanical changes in their flagship motorcycle. The 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 booking has already begun and one can book the motorcycle by depositing a sum of Rs. 5,000 at her/his nearest dealership.

2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 Specifications

The 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 will be powered by the same 373.3 cc motor but it will churn out more power now, 39.9 bhp at 8,650 rpm to be specific, which is 4.9 bhp more than the previous 35 bhp at 8,000 rpm offered by the bike. However, the torque statistics remain the same as the ongoing model of Bajaj Dominar 400 - 35 Nm at 7,000 rpm. The increased power figures hint at the possibility of Bajaj equipping the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 with a DOHC engine setup, same as seen on the KTM 390 Duke. This move will take engine refinement of the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 to a higher level.

The 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 features a 6-speed transmission, same as the one on the ongoing model, which also has a slipper clutch to prevent the loss of torque while shifting gears. The motorcycle also boasts of a dual-channel ABS that increases the stopping power and ensures safety at the time of panic braking and avoids locking of the tyres. Bajaj was pitching the Dominar as a hyper tourer, but it lacked one crucial feature, i.e., the Upside Down front forks (USD). This made the bike to be at the receiving end of criticism. Keeping this in mind, the brand has equipped the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 with USD forks which is clearly visible in a recent TV commercial of Bajaj Auto. This update will certainly enhance the cruiser feel of the motorcycle and enthusiasts are going to appreciate this for sure. Features like an all-LED headlamp, tubeless tyres, 13 litres of fuel tank and rear monoshock are being carried over by the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400.
