The new Bajaj Dominar 400 was spied in the Shanipar area in Pune city. The spy shot provides a clear view of the new exhaust system and the silver finished USD forks of the updated model.

A leaked video from earlier this week detailed the new instrument console on the bike. The primary cluster displays additional information like Engine Kill-Switch ON, Side Stand Down, Average Fuel Economy, Instantaneous Fuel Economy and much more. The secondary display, mounted on the fuel-tank mounted, shows the gear-position indicator, clock, odometer and two trip meters.

Bajaj dealerships have already started accepting unofficial bookings for the new Dominar 400. A report dated 5 December claimed that the new model will feature a refined and more powerful motor with DOHC setup. The engine on the existing Dominar 400 suffered from the inherent vibration issue, and the introduction of an updated unit will be a welcome change.

The current Bajaj Dominar 400 employs a 373.2 cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder motor that produces 35 PS of power and 35 Nm of peak torque. It is paired with a six-speed gearbox. It features dual-channel ABS and slipper clutch as standard fitment. In the anticipation of the updated model, the sales of the outgoing model declined to 170 units in November 2018.
