  • It now commands a premium of around Rs 10,000 over the previous Dominar 400.
  • Notable updates include new USD forks, a double-barrel exhaust, and redesigned rear view mirrors.
  • Comes in two colours: Aurora Green and Vine Black.
  • It’s powered by the same 373.3cc, liquid-cooled engine which now gets DOHC setup and a revised compression ratio.

Bajaj has officially launched the hotly anticipated 2019 Dominar 400 at Rs 1,73,870 (ex-showroom, Delhi). That’s a premium of just around Rs 10,000 over the outgoing model. Considering the kind of work that’s gone into the updated Dominar 400, we’d say the new Dominar 400 makes for an exceptional value for money proposition. Deliveries will commence from the second week of April. But before you run to your nearest Bajaj showroom with your cheque book, we’d suggest you have a look at our first ride impressions to better understand what the updated 2019 Dominar 400 has to offer.

The biggest update comes in the form of a reworked powerplant. Its 373.3cc, liquid-cooled engine now gets a DOHC (Dual Overhead Camshaft) setup and a higher compression ratio of 12.1:1 instead of the previous 11.3:1. This along with an ECU retune and a new double-barrel exhaust means that bike puts out an additional 5PS at 8650rpm over the outgoing model, which made 35PS at 7000rpm. Peak torque output remains unchanged at 35Nm, although it's now delivered at 7,000rpm, 500rpm higher than before. According to Bajaj, the 2019 Dominar can accelerate from 0-100kmph in 7.1 seconds. The motor comes mated to a 6-speed transmission aided by a slipper clutch.

Other notable additions include upside-down forks from Endurance, a revised layout for its dual instrument console setup, a new side stand, redesigned rearview mirrors and forged aluminium mirror stalks. The bike’s all-LED headlight receives clever masking to make it look visually smaller while nifty bungee straps placed under the pillion seat make sure your luggage stays in place. Apart from this, the 2019 Dominar 400 goes back to using its original two-tone diamond-cut wheels rather than the gold-painted ones as seen on the outgoing model.

Interestingly, Bajaj has reworked the spring rate on the rear monoshock to improve ride quality. Braking duties are handled by the same 320mm front and 230mm rear discs; however, the front disc comes paired with a radially mounted caliper instead of the axially-mounted unit seen on the previous-gen model. The aforementioned updates amount to a total weight gain of 2kg, which puts it at a total of 184kg (kerb).

At this price point, the Bajaj Dominar 400 goes up against the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 and the new Jawa. We will be sure to test the 2019 Dominar 400 in real-world conditions, so stay tuned to ZigWheels for a thorough road test review.

    Rajesh | 2 months ago I know Bajaj is capable of doing something much better, this is only an interim model I could say until we see a twin cylinder bike. 0 Reply
