Bajaj has managed to move more units of the Dominar 400 post its facelift. This is because the value-for-money product was even more better in terms of bang for the buck. You get USD forks, better headlights, bungee straps under the rear seat, softer rear suspension and more. The update didn’t bring with it a big price hike. However, slowly but steadily, Bajaj has been increasing the price of the Dominar 400. It has reached a stage where the current price is Rs 6,000 more than the original one a few months ago. The Bajaj Dominar 400 price in India is Rs 1.80 lakh now, ex-Delhi. There is only one dual-channel ABS trim on offer.
What is the cause of this rising price of the Dominar 400?
The price when the refreshed Dominar was launched was introductory. That phase was to bring in the customers with the relatively lower price tag. Now Bajaj may want to concentrate on the profits. The 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 has got a DOHC 373cc, oil-cooled engine. This engine makes 40PS of power and 35Nm. A 6-speed transmission with slipper clutch too is provided. It is said that vibrations have reduced to a great extent while the handlebar risers have ensured a relaxed riding posture. The brakes too have become a tad sharper while the rear suspension is a bit more pliant now.
The Dominar is available with a black and green paint schemes. In the coming months, a red paint too will be introduced. At present, based on the price bracket, the Dominar goes up against the RE Classic 350, the Honda CB300R, KTM 250 Duke and Mahindra Mojo. However, all these vehicles are priced higher than the Dominar or offer less power. It remains to be seen if any other player will be entering this highly competitive space and give this appealing Bajaj competition.
