Bajaj Dominar 400 matte black won’t cost anything extra over other three colour schemes; available in both non-ABS and ABS versions
There is a new Dominar 400 paint scheme introduced in India and it has officially been added to the existing colour palette across nationwide dealerships as we already reported. The naked motorcycle has so far been offered in three colours namely Twilight Plum, Moon White and Midnight Blue and the presence of a new finish will only make the D400 appealing for more number of customers.
It is priced at Rs. 1,41,054 for the non-ABS and Rs. 1,55,215 (ex-showroom Delhi) for the ABS version. In recent times, the prospect of matte colours has been buyer’s preferential target and Bajaj Auto could address that fact with the new Matte Black scheme on the Dominar 400. Manufacturers tend to introduce more colours on a particular model to instigate customers following its launch and Bajaj could do just the same with the naked tourer.

The Dominar 400 is doing pretty decent sales in the domestic market but perhaps not up to the initial target set by the Pune-based company. The arrival of new paint scheme could help in their bid to increase sales by some margin.
The Dominar 400 takes power from a 373.3 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 35 PS at 8,000 rpm and 35 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. The KTM Duke 390 derived motor is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. For the price tag and features on offer, the D400 is considered as one of the desirable VFM bikes you could buy in India.
Bajaj debuted the Pulsar CS400 at the 2014 edition of the Indian Auto Expo which formed the basics for the D400. It shares components with the KTM Duke 390 that received tremendous response not only in India but worldwide. The Bajaj Dominar 400 has 200NS’ silhouette with bold and large headlamps.
It features digital LCD instrument cluster displaying all necessary info and the halogen headlamp unit at the centre is surrounded by LED lights – a segment first feature with Auto Headlamps On function (AHO).
Gear shift indicator with white backlight, sculpted tank, stepped saddle seat instead of split seats, body cowls are some of the other features available. The front suspension is multi step telescopic fork with monoshock setup at the rear alongside large 17-inch alloy wheels, drilled twin channel ABS, disc brakes up front and at the back.
