Bajaj Dominar is made at the company’s Chakan plant.
Bajaj Auto has announced that it has started production of its most powerful 400 cc motorcycle, alleged to be called Bajaj Dominar 400, at the Chakan plant in Maharashtra, India. The first batch of the motorcycle rolled out yesterday and images of the event have surfaced on social media.
The Bajaj Dominar 400 is the production version of the Bajaj CS400 concept introduced at Auto Expo 2016. As expected and previewed in our renderings previously, the production version looks very close to the concept in terms of design and styling. It will be launched in India by 15 December.
The Bajaj Dominar 400 is powered by a modified version of the KTM Duke 390‘s 373.2 cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine. This unit delivers 44 hp in the KTM Duke 390, but for the Bajaj Dominar 400, reports say that it has been detuned to 34.5 hp. It’s linked to a 6-speed transmission.
Telescopic front suspension, monoshock rear suspension, front and rear disc brakes, LED headlamp, fully digital instrument cluster and tell-tale lights are some of the key aspects of the Bajaj Dominar known so far. Some reports say that single-channel ABS will be standard and dual-channel ABS will be optional, while some say that ABS will be available only optionally.
The Dominar 400’s expected to be priced from around INR 1.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
