The Dominar Trip360 Trans Siberian Odyssey crossed 15,000 kilometres across more than 6 countries to reach east Siberia
Bajaj Dominar becomes the first motorcycle to cross 15,000 kilometre across Siberian continent to reach the eastern part of Siberia. The journey was christened as the Dominar Trip360 Trans Siberian Odyssey involved three Indian riders Deepak Kamath, Sudhir Prasad and Dilip Krishna Bhat along with their slightly modified Bajaj Dominar 400s.
Not only the first motorcycle to achieve this feat, this was also the first time any Indian became able to achieve such a milestone. The route went through more than six countries including Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Russia. The journey challenged the riders and their motorcycles with extreme road and terrain conditions.
As the riders say, the Bajaj Dominar proved to be well capable of taking such tough challenges. Dominar 400 is the flagship model from Bajaj Auto. It was launched in December last year and garnered positive response from the buyers. This premium bike shares its 373.3 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected DTS-i engine with the new KTM Duke 390. Coupled with a 6-speed transmission, this engine is well capable of churning out 35 PS of peak power at 8,000 rpm and 35 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm.
Speaking about the three Bajaj Dominar 400s that crossed Siberia came with a modified higher-seating front mudguard. Also, the other additional accessories include knuckle guards fitted to the handlebars, luggage carrier at the back.
