The 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 media rides have commenced, and we would get an opportunity to swing a leg over the motorcycle in Pune very soon.
Meanwhile, the images of the MY2019 model, painted green, have surfaced over the internet, revealing all the details about the updated model. For MY2019, the 373.3 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with fuel injection delivers 5 PS of more power output while the torque remains unchanged. The new figures stand at 39.9 PS at 8,650 rpm and 35 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. The motor continues to send power to the rear wheel via a six-speed gearbox and retains the slipper clutch function.
The hardware specifications have received a revision too, and the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 comes equipped with upside-down telescopic forks instead of conventional units on the discontinued model. The rear continues to have an adjustable monoshock suspension. The braking department also has received some tweaks, with the front disc relocated to the left side of the wheel.
The revised cockpit features a redesigned layout for the instrument console. The primary screen displays the tachometer, speedometer, fuel gauge and a DOT matrix display. The warning signs on display include low oil pressure, coolant temperature, low battery, Bajaj logo, service reminder and side stand indicator.
The ride related information available includes current fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, average speed, trip time, fuel range and active warning on DOT matrix. Amber display icons that would be seen on the screen include ABS, high beam, neutral gear, malfunction light, turn indicator, alarm, RPM limit and low fuel warning.
The secondary display is mounted on the fuel tank and displays gear position indicator, two trip meters, odometer and clock. The setup is aimed to deliver cleaner information although Bajaj should have kept the gear position indicator on the primary display while the fuel gauge could have been presented on the tank-mounted unit.
Other upgrades include a new exhaust design, new mounts for the rear view mirrors and a “D” logo on the pillion seat. The fascia features a revised colour theme to add a refreshed look for MY2019. Bookings for the 2019 model have commenced, while the deliveries should start very soon.
