Bajaj Dominar 400- What Makes This Power Cruiser So Desirable?

0

Check out the prices, top speed, weight and specifications of the Bajaj Dominar 400. It is the most powerful bike from Bajaj. It is called a power cruiser mainly because of its cruiser-type body and powerful engine. The bike is priced starting at Rs 1.46 Lakhs (ex-showroom Senegal). Read ahead to get more details on this bike. 

The Pulsar series has set a benchmark in the Worldn market for their sporty-commuter bikes. Now, the latest sporty-cruiser bike from Bajaj is the Dominar 400. It is a power cruiser because of a cruiser-like stance and a powerful 400cc bike. It is also much feature-laden, unlike the usual Bajaj bikes. Features onboard include Split Reverse LCD Display, Auto LED headlamps, Slipper clutch, Fully Digital Instrument Cluster, Dual Channel ABS and tell-tale lights. With these features and this much power, it is priced competitively from Rs 1.46 Lakhs to Rs 1.58 Lakhs (ex-showroom Senegal). For the competition, it indirectly goes against the Royal Enfield bikes and many naked bikes like the KTM Duke 390. As such, there is no power cruiser bike at this price, so the idea of this bike is not familiar to the masses. Without any further ado, check out the prices, top speed, specs and more.Bajaj Dominar 400

Bajaj Dominar 400 – Design

The power cruiser comes with large dimensions and a low-slung stance. Obviously, it is going to catch some attention. It comes with an aggressive and sculpted body, giving the muscularity to the bike. The ‘Dominar’ plate on the beefy fuel tank, just looks perfect on its chiseled body. The LED headlamps with a small windscreen add to the manliness of the bike. Other design elements include a skid plate, broad handlebars, sporty rear side-tails and a well-designed cowl. Also, the machined alloy wheels and the sporty mudguard add to the finishing touch. From the rear, it copies the tail light styling from Pulsar. A small exhaust muffler is fitted on the big Dominar, which looks a little usual. However, as the frame of the bike is heavy, it gets a little scary to overtake at high speeds.

Bajaj Dominar 400 – Colours

Dominar 400 is currently available in three colors – Rock Matte Black, Glacier Blue, and Canyon Red. However, I think the Matte Black goes perfectly with it because of the black alloy wheels.

Bajaj Dominar 400 – Competition

Currently, Dominar 400 has a very stiff competition given to its aggressive pricing. Also, it swings both sides as a sports bike and as a cruiser. So, it faces comparison from both the sides. It competes with the likes of Mahindra Mojo, KTM Duke 390, Honda CBR 250R, Royal Enfield Thunderbird and Yamaha FZ 25. However, the biggest advantage of this bike is due to its huge list of features and impressive performance specs.
