There were lots of speculations doing the rounds in regards to Bajaj’s recent press conference. Most of us thought there would be an announcement regarding Urbanite, the company’s electric endeavour. But, in a turn of events, the conference actually shed light on the company’s new tagline: The World’s Favourite Indian. Via an advertorial which showcased what the brand had achieved overseas, Bajaj also slyly unveiled the complete look of the 2019 Dominar 400.

The video also gives us a glimpse of the colour options available for the updated mini-hypertourer. Basically, there are four shades to choose from: matte black, red, blue and white. Additionally, the video reveals new rear view mirrors, upside-down forks in what looks like brushed aluminium finish, and a two-port exhaust. Aside from these changes, the positioning of the front disc brake has also been changed. It now sits on the left-hand side. This may hint at the fact that Bajaj could be using the KTM’s suspension setup to cut costs. However, it may be tuned to be on the softer side to suit the touring character of the bike.
Additional updates come in the form of a reworked layout for its dual instrument console. The primary display features an additional side stand indicator and tell-tale lights. On the other than, the tank mounted console now reads out the gear position indicator, tripmeter and odometer.

As far as the motor is concerned, it’s likely to employ the same 373.3cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled mill. Coupled with a 6-speed transmission, it dishes out 35PS of power at 8,000rpm and 35Nm at 6,500rpm. The bike also gets a slipper clutch.
On the mechanical side of things, the 2019 Dominar 400 employs the same perimeter frame with a monoshock at the rear and new upside-down forks from Endurance. Its tyre dimensions and make remain unchanged.
We expect the updated Dominar 400 to carry a premium of around Rs 10,000 to 15,000 over the current model. With its expected February launch date closing in, dealerships across India have started accepting bookings for the bike for a token amount ranging between 1,000 and Rs 5,000 (depends on the dealership and city).
