The sports touring motorcycle market is suddenly evolving pretty rapidly. While there’s a small section of buyers that opts for the high-end, purpose-built CBU-imports, there are many who experience the thrill of long-distance motorcycling on considerably cheaper World-made options. Of course, those in the RE clan swear by their steads and have stuck to these retro-styled motorcycles since forever now. However, there’s a new fast-growing segment of buyers who opt for entry-level performance motorcycles for sports touring. One such new motorcycle that seems to be fast catching the fancy of these buyers is the Bajaj Dominar 400. Owners of this motorcycle already have many modification options to make their motorcycles all the more touring-friendly. The modified Dominar you see here carries several such touring-solutions. The many custom bits this bike carries make it one of the best modified Bajaj Dominar 400 motorcycles we have seen so far.
