CarandBike reports that Bajaj Auto will commence the export of the Bajaj Dominar 400 to Australia very soon. The same was reported last month along with UK, Poland and the Czech Republic.
As per the website’s sources, the Indian brand is looking at Australia as one of its newest export markets and will be exporting its flagship two-wheeler there. Bajaj already sells the Dominar to foreign countries like Nepal, Central America and Turkey. The Indian brand plans to export the Dominar to several European countries as well. Bajaj’s partner KTM also sells the India-made 2017 KTM 390 Duke, and its faired version, the RC 390 in Australia. The Dominar 400 will be sent to the country from Bajaj’s Chakan plant in Maharashtra, India.

Last month, the Indian company announced that it is teaming up with Triumph to make middleweight motorcycles. While the motorcycle development is already underway, the finished range of products could compete against Royal Enfield’s upcoming 750cc motorcycle. Moreover, Bajaj’s expansion to foreign markets with the Dominar could also help the brand cement its position in the middleweight segment. Bajaj hopes to improve its sales numbers for the year with the newly launched Platina and the upcoming new version of the Bajaj V as well.
The Bajaj Dominar 400 borrows engine parts from the KTM 390 Duke. The 373.3 cc single cylinder liquid cooled mill doles out 35 PS of power at 8,000 rpm and 35 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. A slipper clutch with 6-speed transmission does duty on the bike. Suspension components include telescopic fork at the front and gas-charged monoshock at the rear. The bike comes with disc brakes with ABS on both ends and with full LED lighting system as well.
