Pros: My Views on the Dominar 400
« on: June 19, 2018, 07:54:41 AM »
Good Day!

The Dominar is another flagship motorcycle after the massive hit "The Bajaj Pulsar".

As mentioned in the manual,  the Machine comes with a solid 373.3cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine that produces 35 HP of maximum power at 8000 rpm while 35 Nm of maximum torque is delivered at just 6500 rpm.

All LED Headlights
0-100 in 7.23 secs (DONT TRY THIS)
Top Speed : 171 kmph (NOT RECOMMENDED TO TEST OR TRY)
A very descent Paint Quality, 43mm Front Forks, Alloy Wheels, MRF tyres and the list goes on. Also, Affordable Parts and low cost Maintenance for a near 400cc Machine. The best part all of this under 2 lacs from a INDIAN manufacturer.

Variants: ABS/ Non-ABS

Now, coming to why this is a good machine.

Competition:

The closest options are the Ninja 400, Duke 390, Versys 300, RE Classic 350, RE Himalyan, RR310, GS310, 310R.

When you look at the Dominar, the price and Specs win hands down as compared to most of the machines in the list above, the obvious reason being the price. The riding range however on a full tank is pretty much the same which is around the 300 -350 Kms range.

Recent advertisements against the RE Classic have created quite a buzz but make no sense as the RE is a class of its own and being a RE owner myself, the ABS system, comfort and range is the only advantage the Dominar has and yes, I also have a fuel indicator (No offence, I owned a classic). However, they did get a competitive edge by taking on the best in class.

Marketing:

For a bike that is at 1.56 L (ex-showroom Delhi), the bike comes with a slipper clutch, split consoles, regular ECU Updates, Good Alloys and has established Bajaj as a forbidable competitor on the Global Market.

My personal Opinion, would be to go for the Dominar.

Complains about poor alloys, weight and pickup have been a recent concern. I would say that all of these mean different things to different Riders.

Take a test Ride, reach out to the Forum or groups for questions, we would be glad to guide you through your decision.

for those who already own the machine, Congratulations!! :) Take care! Ride Safe and Don't forget your Riding Gear.
