Bajaj Auto has taken the wraps off the 2018 Bajaj Dominar 400. The power cruiser now comes in three new colours: Rock Matte Black, Glacier Blue, and Canyon Red. There are no changes in the prices.
The new colours draw inspiration from the terrains conquered by the bike. All the three colour variants come with gold-finish alloy-wheels. The body panels are in the new colours, while the frame, suspension and swingarm are all black.
The 2018 models feature only cosmetic updates, and the mechanicals are unchanged. The 2018 Bajaj Dominar 400 employs the same 373.3 cc single cylinder mill with liquid cooling and fuel injection. It makes 35 PS of power at 8,000 rpm, and 35 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The powerplant works in tandem with a 6-speed transmission with slipper clutch. The motorcycle can reach a claimed top speed of 148 kmph; and has a 0-100 kmph acceleration time of 8.23 seconds.
When it comes to cycle parts, Bajaj has equipped the Dominar with 43 mm telescopic front fork, and a rear Nitrox monoshock. The 17-inch alloy wheels are shod with 110-section front and 150-section rear radial tyres. Brakes include 320 mm front disc and 230 mm rear disc, with twin-channel ABS as an option. The fuel tank can hold 13 litres of juice.
The 2018 Bajaj Dominar 400 costs INR 1,42,108 for the non-ABS version, and INR 1,56,270 for the ABS variant. Both prices are ex-showroom, New Delhi. The Dominar 400’s competitors in the price segment include the Royal Enfield Thunderbird and Classic 350, and the UM Renegade range.
