Bajaj will launch the updated Dominar 400 in March 2019 and it is now confirmed to generate more power than its predecessor
We have reported earlier that Bajaj is all set to launch the new 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 in India. The soon to be launched motorcycle was spotted on many occasions already while testing. Some videos on Youtube even showed us the upcoming Dominar 400’s in-gear acceleration and the rest of the cosmetic updates that it has received.
Now a leaked spec sheet finally revealed the power output of the Bajaj’s flagship offering and we are happy to inform you all that the motorcycle now generates more power than its predecessor. The leaked spec sheet revealed that the new Dominar will generate about 39.9 PS of peak power at 8,650 rpm (the current Dominar produces 35 PS of peak power) and the same 35 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm.
The RPM limit of the motorcycle has also been increased to 10,000 rpm (the current Dominar has a limit of 9,000 rpm). Besides the changes made to the engine the motorcycle’s overall length, height, wheelbase, and ground clearance remain the same. However, it is now wider than its predecessor (836 mm as compared to 813 mm).
Besides all these changes made to the engine, the motorcycle will also receive a new upside-down suspension setup, a redesigned exhaust canister, and an updated instrument cluster (the fuel tank mounted instrument console provides more information now). The 2019 Dominator 400 was also spied with some new color options including a new glossy shade of bright green, red and also white.
Some other minor visual upgrades made to the motorcycle include a new rear view mirror, redesigned crash guard, and black alloy wheel. The motorcycle will use the same 320 mm disc brake towards the front and a 220 mm disc brake towards the rear. A dual channel ABS comes as standard for the safety of the rider.
The 2019 Dominar 400 will also be pricier than the current generation motorcycle by around Rs 15,000 to 20,000 (the current Bajaj Dominar 400 is priced at Rs 1.63 Lakh). The motorcycle will rival directly against the likes of the Mahindra Mojo, BMW G310R, and Royal Enfield Classic and Thunderbird 350 when it finally launches here next month.
