Introduction:

Bajaj Dominar has finally procured the much-needed upgrade and should get the dominar fans ecstatic about their revamped motorbike.

The upgrade was evident provided the flagship bike from Bajaj had to deal with their closest rivals.

Launched in late 2016, Bajaj Dominar has had some loyal customers who have rated the motorbike highly, even though Bajaj expected much better market performance from their powerful long-distance tourer.

The 2019 Dominar 400 gets a bunch of upgrades including newly improved suspension, more power and even more add-on features as opposed to its predecessor.

Here we get in every detail of the new 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400.

As far as the design aspect of the bike is concerned, the overall silhouette of the bike remains the same. There aren’t really a lot of tweaks made in the design, but those subtle changes are there to see.

Compared to its predecessor, the 2019 Dominar looks more aggressive, thanks to the revised and a slightly smaller LED headlamps. The taillight also gets a fresh appeal, but still, the old Dominar vibe remains pristine.

Like earlier variants, the adventure tourer keeps its dual display instrument console intact.

In fact, the 2019 variant receives added features on its primary instrument console like average fuel consumption, current fuel economy and distance remaining to next service.

The secondary fuel tank display console now comes with a gear position indicator, trip meter.

Another significant change in the design aspect is the new 43mm upside down forks replacing the older telescopic suspension.

Alongside the 2019 Dominar now comes with a twin-barrel exhaust offering a throaty and somewhat a bassier exhaust sound.

This newer suspension and exhaust has made Dominar gain some 2 kg of weight and now weighs at 184 kg.

Another handy feature includes bungee straps under the pillion seats to mount your luggage in case you are up for a long distance adventure all by your own.

New Bajaj Dominar 400 is now available in a new colour scheme named  Aurora Green along with the earlier Vine Black option.

Engine and Performance:

Engine part deserves a special mention when it comes to the 2019 Bajaj Dominar Review. One part we always felt that the Bajaj Dominar lacked was that powerful punch, you obviously expect from a 400cc tourer bike.

Bajaj Auto was not unaware of the fact and have tried to address the issue. The 2019 Dominar comes with the same 373.2cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine.

But the engine now uses a DOHC (Double Over Head Camshaft) setup as opposed to the earlier SOHC setup. This change actually increases the power of the bike by around 5 bhp (not bad, right?).

The new 2019 Bajaj Dominar now chunks out a power of 40 bhp at 8650 rpm. The torque remains the same i.e. 35 Nm but is available at 7500 rpm instead of earlier 8000 rpm.

The company claims to have a top speed of 155 kmph and accelerates from 0-100 km in 7.1 seconds. The engine is meshed with a 6-speed gearbox.

From the safety front, dual channel ABS is now standard for all variants, with non-ABS version completely discontinued.

With important updates on all the fronts, it makes the motorbike slightly expensive. 2019 Bajaj Dominar has been aggressively priced at Rs. 1,74,000. That is Rs. 17,000 more for the added features is not all that bad.

The bike primarily rivals against TVS Apache RR 310, Honda CB 300R and KTM Duke 390. 2019 Dominar still serves as an undercut option, when compared with its rivals.

Delivery of the motorbike will commence from the second week of April.

The new 2019 Dominar will certainly satisfy the adventure touring flock, with above par highway speed, great stability and sorted ride quality even in toughest of terrains.

We definitely loved the overall package the Dominar brings to the table. With a budget below 2 lakhs and a desire to have a ‘do it all’ motorbike, one thing won’t disappoint you, that is the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400.
