It will remain powered by the same 373cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that has been derived from the KTM 390 Duke’s engine. The engine currently produces a maximum power of 35 Bhp and a peak torque of 35 Nm.
It will likely to offer the same engine and torque output even after the update. It gets a 6-speed manual transmission. With the new safety regulations coming up. Bajaj will not offer the non-ABS version in the market anymore. From 1st April 2019, the sale of any two-wheeler with engine capacity above 125cc without ABS would be banned in the Indian market.
Bajaj will only offer the dual-channel ABS version of the bike. The price of the Bajaj Dominar is also expected to rise by a bit due to the new changes. The updated model is expected to go on sale by the end of this month with an ex-showroom price of around Rs. 1.6 lakhs.
