The 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 is drawing closer to its launch and while we are yet to receive an update from the company, a unit of the upcoming motorcycle, painted white, was recently spotted in the country. Today we come across this video review of the new Dominar 400 that was captured back in September 2018, when the creator of the video was riding the motorcycle in Ladakh.
The video reveals the new instrument console along with the updated styling and the exhaust note of the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400. Regular readers have read our report that explained the updated, split-style instrument console that the 2019 model would pack. The motorcycle will receive an updated suspension setup that includes upside-down telescopic forks. The outgoing model, for reference, used conventional telescopic forks. The rear-view mirrors, too, have received an updated design.
The YouTuber claims that the 2019 Dominar 400 feels more refined and the vibration issue from the outgoing model have been resolved. He also lists all the design upgrades that the 2019 model receives. Some of the changes include the repositioned front disc brake, new design for the crash guards, a longer rear fender and a redesigned brake oil reservoir for the rear. Previous sightings revealed the new engine cowl and the updated exhaust design.
There is no mention of mechanical changes in the video but a report from the first week of January claimed that the motorcycle would arrive with a BS-VI compliant motor. The source report added that the motor would not receive a performance bump and the 2019 Dominar 400 continues to use a 373 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that delivers 35 PS of power and 35 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed transmission and features a slipper clutch.
Stopping power will come from a 320 mm disc at the front and a 220 mm disc at the back while the safety net of dual-channel ABS will be available as standard.
