The updated Dominar 400 looks quicker than the old Dominar. Could this possibly mean that the motorcycle has received a significant power upgrade?
All of you must be well aware of the fact that Bajaj will launch the 2019 Dominar 400 soon in India. The flagship Bajaj offering was spotted a number of times while testing on Indian road and the motorcycle even featured in their new TVC as well. In this particular video, the rider shows how fast the 2019 Dominar 400 is compared to its predecessor.
To explain the difference better, the rider hits the redline of the 2019 Dominar 400 in its 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear. Later he rides an old Dominar that he owns once again and hits the redline in the first three gears to show the changes that the new motorcycle has received.
In the first gear, the 2019 Dominar 400 hits a top speed of 57 km/h mark, while in the second gear the bike reaches 80 km/h. Unbelievably the updated Dominar is able to reach triple-digit speeds (106 km/h mark) in the third gear. Now the rider compares the 2019 Dominar 400 with his 2017 Dominar 400 and there you can notice that the old Dominar reaches speeds of 49 km/h in the first gear, 70 km/h in the second and 92 km/h mark in the third gear.
This video clearly proves that the updated Dominar is definitely faster than its predecessor. Now there could be many reasons behind the 2019 Dominar 400 being faster than the old Dominar. Bajaj could possibly have tweaked both the gearbox ratio and the engine for faster acceleration and better lower and mid-range power.
However, they could possibly also have increased the overall power output of the motorcycle as well. Apart from the mechanical changes the motorcycle has also received a new upside down front forks, updated instrument cluster, new alloy wheels and a redesigned twin-port exhaust as well.
Unfortunately, the rider here hasn’t mentioned any details about the mechanical changes that the motorcycle has received and thus we will only be able to inform you after Bajaj finally launches the motorcycle here in India.
