2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 To Get New Colour
- The 2019 Dominar 400 might be offered in two new colours pretty soon: metallic red and silver.
- It’s currently available in just two shades: grey and black.
- The new colour wouldn’t command a premium over the existing bikes.
A couple of months ago, Bajaj had teased the arrival of two new paint schemes for the 2019 Dominar 400: metallic red and silver. The bike sporting the new metallic red colour has now been spotted, suggesting that it could hit showroom floors pretty soon. The 2019 Dominar was originally launched in two colours - green and black; however, the introduction of the new paint schemes should bring the tally up to four: green, black, red and silver. There’s no price hike expected for the new colours and the Dominar 400 still retails at Rs 1.74 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.
Bajaj originally showcased the updated Dominar 400 via its official advert with a red paint option, however, Bajaj officials at the time of the launch mentioned that the red colour would only be available in the near future based on demand. And the bikemaker seems to be delivering on its promise with the increase in number of sales for the bike. To put things into perspective, the 2019 Dominar 400, post its launch, roped in a little over 1,300 units sales in the month of April 2019 compared to 1,373 units in the corresponding month of April 2018. This number rose to 1,888 units in the following month of May, with a 59 per cent growth rate.
The updated model gets a returned 373.3cc engine featuring a higher compression ratio of 12.1:1 and a DOHC (Dual Overhead Camshaft) setup. It also comes with a new map for the ECU which helps it deliver 40PS at 7000rpm compared to 35PS on the previous-gen model. While its torque output remains the same at 35Nm, it’s now produced 500rpm higher at 7,500rpm.
That’s not all, the 2019 Dominar 400 also features a new upside-down fork with a radially mounted front caliper, a softer rear monoshock, dual-barrel exhaust, a revised layout for its instrument cluster paired with some subtle cosmetic updates.
