Bajaj Dominar 400 Launch on December 15
The Pulsar range comprises of bikes with engines ranging from 135cc to 220cc. And while the Pulsar has been highly successful with bringing affordable performance to Indian bike buyers, Bajaj thinks it’s apt to sell its upcoming 400cc bike under different branding. Hence, it earlier came to light that the highly awaited Pulsar CS400 will be called the Kratos. However, the bike was re-named again. The production-spec Pulsar CS400 aka Pulsar VS400 aka Kratos VS400 (phew!) has been re-christened to Dominar 400. Dominar is the Spanish word for the ‘one who dominates’. The upcoming Dominar range is likely to see more bikes under its umbrella. Read on for Bajaj Dominar 400 Price, Launch Date, Mileage, Top Speed, Specifications.
As we said, Bajaj is likely to introduce more bikes in the Dominar series. One of these is likely to be the production-spec Pulsar SS400.
Bajaj Dominar 400 Launch Date
|Dominar 400||December 15, 2016|
The Bajaj Dominar 400 launch date is December 15, 2016. The Dominar 400 was earlier expected to launch in October. However, BAL thought it best to push the launch to year-end and focus on meeting high demands in the festive season. Bookings for the Dominar 400 could commence anytime now. Powering the Dominar 400 is the same 373cc engine from Duke 390. However, this motor has been tuned differently for the Dominar. The Dominar 400 will be the second new Bajaj bike to launch in 2016. The manufacturer earlier launched the V15 this year.
The microsite for the upcoming Bajaj Dominar 400 has also gone LIVE! While it does not reveal much about the bike, there are a couple of teaser images available. Also, prospective buyers can register for an exclusive preview of the upcoming Bajaj motorcycle.

The Dominar 400 will become the most expensive Bajaj bike ever. It will share many cycle parts with the 390 Duke. Its performance will stand at par with that from its rivals. The Dominar’s world-class design is likely to have many takers. To us, it has a faint resemblance with the Ducati Diavel.

Max. power-torque output for the Dominar stands at 35 PS-33 Nm. While this makes the Dominar 400 much less powerful than the Duke 390, it’s likely to enjoy a higher mileage.
Unlike the Pulsar CS400 concept, this bike misses out on upside down front forks. Braking duties are courtesy of disc brakes at both ends. The bike also gets 17-inch alloy, ABS and gas-charged monoshock.

Bajaj Dominar 400 Review Video
Bajaj Dominar 400 Design Review
The Bajaj Dominar 400 looks almost exactly like the CS400. We are really impressed by the world-class design. We feel that the design of the Dominar takes a wee bit of inspiration from the Ducati Diavel. The Dominar will excite many. Its front fascia has an aggressive styling. The LED headlamps make the bike look futuristic. However, unlike the CS400, the Dominar misses out on USDs.
Other highlights are – muscular tank, aggressive headlamp, sporty tail section and LED taillamps. The Bajaj Dominar 400 won’t have any garish body graphics.
