Bajaj Dominar 400 with touring kit launched in India
The new Bajaj Dominar 400 with touring kit (factory installed) costs Rs 2.17 lakh (ex-showroom). The touring equipment-equipped new Dominar 400 costs only Rs 5,000 more than the regular model.
A tall visor and knuckle shields are included in the new touring outfit to reduce wind buffeting. The inclusion of a metal bash plate and an integrated skid plate has also enhanced the Dominar 400’s overall safety quotient — if you plan on riding it off-road or over massive speed breakers, that is. In addition, a new leg protection will be incorporated in this new touring suit.
A pillion seat support has been elegantly incorporated into the redesigned rear carrier as part of the touring package, which also features saddle stays for mounting saddlebags for long hauls. A navigation holder is also included with the motorbike, allowing riders to install personal navigation gadgets. A USB port is also included in the kit, which may be used to charge mobile devices.
All of the aforementioned equipment, with the exception of the saddle stays, will be included as standard. The saddle stays will be available for purchase at an additional cost. The entire touring kit will be a factory-fit setup that will not violate the Bajaj Dominar 400’s warranty, allowing riders to explore and tour with confidence.
Apart from the addition of the touring package, the mechanicals of the Bajaj Dominar 400 remain unchanged. The motorbike is powered by a 373cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine connected to a six-speed transmission with a slipper clutch. The engine produces 39.5 horsepower and 35 Nm of torque.
There’s a high possibility Bajaj will release a comparable touring package for the smaller Dominar 250 as well. However, unlike the introduction of the Bajaj Pulsar 250, which is set for October 28, that does not appear to be on the manufacturer’s priority list.
