    The Norton Dominator is powered by an in-house developed 961cc parallel-twin air-cooled engine with an oil cooler. It develops 80PS at 6500rpm and 90Nm at 5200rpm. In an old-school way, the engine is pushrod actuated but with four valves per cylinder. It works alongside a 5-speed transmission. There are no fancy electronics either, apart from a dual-channel ABS offered as standard. This engine is BS4-compliant at the moment and under TVS’ leadership, the brand plans to upgrade it soon to Euro 5/BS6 emission norms so that its sales can be resumed in the country. The Norton Dominator has priced at Rs 23.7 lakh (ex-showroom) in India and was sold via the CBU route. However, with the new management and the advent of stricter emission norms, the bike is not available at the moment. There is no rival of Norton Dominator in Royal Enfield bikes, it goes up against other neo-retro motorcycles like the Triumph Thruxton R and the BMW R NineT.
