When you think of a cruiser, generally bikes like Royal Enfield, Harley Davidson or the Indian Bajaj Avenger come to your mind. They have a typical old-school design which has engines that are just for long rides and not for acceleration. Here, we have the Bajaj Dominar 400, a mean and modern power cruiser. Read more.
Homegrown Auto Maker, Bajaj Motors is known for its grunty yet frugal engine bikes. It houses a range of bikes, which has many blockbusters. One such range in the Pulsar, which was an immediate hit since the early 2000s. Bajaj has been specializing in sports- commuter friendly bikes and here it gives another one. The Bajaj Dominar 400, a power cruiser, is a daily commuting sporty cruiser bike. Power Cruisers are referred to such bikes which offer immense power on a cruiser body. Dominar looks mean enough to put many bikes to shame. It carries an attractive price tag of around Rs 1.5 Lakhs, which is quite good for a 400cc bike. It gets some attractive features onboard too. Obviously, for cruisers, most of the people directly look for a Royal Enfield bike. But this one manages to create its mark. Read ahead for more details on the power cruiser.

The bike is aggressively priced starting from Rs 1.46 Lakh for the standard variant to Rs 1.58 Lakh for the ABS variant (both prices ex-showroom). The given price creates a tough competition. Also, given the features and engines that it provides, the pricing is decent.

The power cruiser comes with large dimensions and a low-slung stance. Obviously, it is going to catch some attention. It comes with an aggressive and sculpted body, giving the muscularity to the bike. The ‘Dominar’ plate on the beefy fuel tank, just looks perfect on its chiselled body. The LED headlamps with a small windscreen add to the manliness of the bike. Other design elements include a skid plate, broad handlebars, sporty rear side-tails and a well-designed cowl. Also, the machined alloy wheels and the sporty mudguard add to the finishing touch. From the rear, it copies the tail light styling from Pulsar. A small exhaust muffler is fitted on the big Dominar, which looks a little usual. However, as the frame of the bike is heavy, it gets a little scary to overtake at high speeds.
The bike runs on a 373 CC Liquid Cooled engine that produces 34.5 BHP worth of power and 35 Nm worth of torque. It comes with a fuel injection system. Although it copies some elements from KTM Duke, it uses Bajaj’s trademark Triple spark 4-valve DTS-i engine. Dominar also uses a single camshaft, instead of two, to operate the four valves. In terms of transmission, it uses a Slipper clutch that is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

Dominar delivers a claimed mileage of 27 KMPL, which is good for a 400 CC bike. It comes with a fuel tank capacity of 13 Litres with 2 Litres reserve fuel capacity. It delivers a total riding range of 351 Kms. The bike records a high speed of 147 Kmph. Also, it clocks 0-100 KMPH in flat 8.4 seconds. The 0-100 KMPH record is not much higher than KTM Duke, making it a mix of a sports bike and a cruiser. Importantly, even bike if the bike is cruising at 120 KMPH, it would not vibrate and still would give a chance of overtaking.

Dominar 400 comes with a height of 1112 mm, length of 2156 mm and width of 813 mm. The wheelbase is good at 1453 mm and the ground clearance is around 157 mm. A larger wheelbase and ground clearance indicate its off-road capabilities. The bike weighs a little heavy at 182 Kgs. It is built on a Beam Type Perimeter Frame. In the front, it uses 43 mm DIA telescopic forks and in the rear, it uses Multistep Adjustable Monoshock. The rear suspension offers good comfort depending on the speed.

Dominar comes in two variants – ABS and Disc Brakes – which are both useful in this beast. The bike uses 320 mm disc brakes in the front, which is the largest in its segment. In the back, it uses 230 mm disc brakes. The higher variant comes with a Dual Channel ABS, which is quite comfortable in terms of jerks while driving. However, such brakes are useful for handling such a bike.

The bike comes with way-load of features, which most of them in the segment do not offer. Must say, Dominar 400 is quite technology savvy. It comes with the following features:

Dominar 400 is currently available in three colours – Rock Matte Black, Glacier Blue and Canyon Red. However, I think the Matte Black goes perfectly with it because of the black alloy wheels.
Currently, Dominar 400 has a very stiff competition given to its aggressive pricing. Also, it swings both sides as a sports bike and as a cruiser. So, it faces comparison from both the sides. It competes with the likes of Mahindra Mojo, KTM Duke 390, Honda CBR 250R, Royal Enfield Thunderbird and Yamaha FZ 25. However, the biggest advantage of this bike is due to its huge list of features and impressive performance specs.
