Bajaj’s flagship motorcycle, the Dominar 400, has become more touring friendly, as the Indian motorcycle maker now offers the Bajaj Dominar 400 with a touring kit at a nominally increased price.
Bajaj has launched the Dominar 400 with a touring kit at a price of Rs 2.17 lakh (ex-showroom). The new Dominar 400 with the touring kit demands only Rs 5,000 more than the standard motorcycle on sale.
The new touring kit includes a tall visor upfront for improved wind buffeting and knuckle guards. Also, the addition of a metal bash plate along with an integrated skid plate has improved the overall safety quotient of the Dominar 400 – if you plan on taking it off-road or over huge speed breakers, that is. There is a new leg guard as well, which will be included in this new touring kit.
The touring kit also includes saddle stays to mount saddlebags for long hauls and a pillion seat support, which has been neatly integrated into the new rear carrier. The motorcycle is also equipped with a navigation holder, which will allow riders to mount their navigation devices. The kit also includes a USB port, which can be used to charge devices.
Excluding the saddle stays, all aforementioned accessories will be offered as standard. The saddle stays will be sold for an extra cost. The complete touring kit will be a factory-fit setup, which will not void any warranty of the Bajaj Dominar 400, which means that riders can explore and tour without any worries.
Other than the addition of the touring kit, Bajaj Dominar 400 continues with the same mechanicals. A 373cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine powers the motorcycle and is mated to a six-speed unit, which features a slipper clutch. The power is rated at 39.5bhp and 35Nm.
There are very good chances that Bajaj may offer a similar touring kit for the smaller Dominar 250. But that does not seem to be on the manufacturer’s priority list, unlike the launch of the Bajaj Pulsar 250, which is scheduled to happen on October 28.
