Bajaj will be launching the updated Dominar 400 in the opening months of 2019 in India with some significant changes
For those of you who are still not aware, Bajaj is going to launch a new and updated 2019 Dominar 400 real soon in India. The power cruiser and Bajaj’s flagship offering was spotted testing recently several times. The updated motorcycle gets plenty of new features, which will definitely make it a more attractive and value for money package than before.
However, you can also expect it to be priced at least Rs. 10,000 to 15,000 more than the current motorcycle. We have already reported about the updated motorcycle before while it was caught testing on Indian roads. That said, here are 5 changes that the new Dominar will likely get:
1. New upside down forks
The 2019 Dominar was spotted with a new upside down forks. From what it looks like, Bajaj has probably used the USD forks from the KTM Duke to make the ride quality more plush on the Dominar 400. That is also the reason why the new 320 mm disc has been positioned towards the left side now to fit the new suspension setup perfectly.
2. Gets Bigger Radiator
Although we haven’t heard too much heating issue on the Dominar still Bajaj has decided to fit a slightly larger radiator to keep the engine cooler especially while riding in city traffic.
3. Updated BSVI Engine
Considering the 2020 deadline, there is a fair chance that Bajaj might update their new Dominar 400 with a new BSVI engine. The current Dominar 400 is powered by a 373.3cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which produces about 35 PS of peak power and 35 Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. There is a possibility that the updated engine might get a slight bump in the overall power output as well.
4. 2019 Dominar gets a new split exhaust canister
The 2019 Dominar was spied with a new split exhaust canister. This new exhaust canister might make the updated Dominar exhaust sound slightly different than the existing motorcycle.
5. New Blacked out alloy wheels
Bajaj has heard the demand of their customers and that is the reason why they are once again bringing back the blacked out alloy wheels for the 2019 Dominar. The facelift Dominar which was launched not so long ago was fitted with golden alloys which many disliked. Thus Bajaj has decided to bring the black alloy wheels back for the updated model which was earlier available with the first generation model.
