The Dominar is Bajaj’s flagship motorcycle, and clocks 4,500 units a month.

The report states that Latin America and parts of South East Asian countries contribute to the majority of the exports. In May, Bajaj appointed a new distributor in Central America. The Bajaj Dominar 400 will reportedly go on sale in more countries like UK, Poland, and Czech. It was reported last month that the Australia export of the Dominar 400 is imminent. In a telephonic interview with the media brand, S Ravikumar, President, Business Development, Bajaj Auto said:

We do believe it will take time for the brand to gain ground in India since it has an established player like Royal Enfield to contend with. We hope to sign off with a market share of 23 per cent in March. Incidentally, things are also going nicely with KTM at Chakan
