Bajaj Dominar 400 (Old Model) Review

22 Dec, 2021 05:16 PM

Quick Review by Maxabout Team

Bajaj Dominar 400 is available in India starting @ INR 1.46 lakh, raising the standards by nearly two times the current amount of performance on the offer in its overall lineup. The new Dominar 400 is a different approach than all other Bajaj motorcycles till date, providing the rider with loads of power and yet, being as relaxed as a cruiser to ride. Losing the name Pulsar from its branding would not make it less than anything on the road from its class.

Dominar carries a sense of exclusivity with its high spec body and an optional dual channel ABS variant for INR 1.60 lakh. Bajaj clearly explains the intention to rule the segment as you cannot even buy a decent 250cc bike in the price where they have placed this 'Big Bike for Big Boys'. The new Bajaj Dominar 400 can be clearly differentiated by its unique styling. Like no other, the Dominar gets a sharp LED headlight with dark accents around itself. The slightly raised windscreen coupled with negligible fairing makes it one of the most attractive options in terms of styling.

The tank section remains calm and flows effortlessly and perfectly to the rider's seat. The flow is so rich that no other motorcycle from the category seems so natural as the Dominar 400. The expended portions of the tank are smart enough to complete the package and seal the deal. Bajaj Auto has finished every component with the most possible precision and those simple factors like back-lit buttons as well as its automatic headlight makes it uber cool in the dark time.

The rear half is totally different story. Unlike all others where the pillion has to climb to the top and grab a seat, the Bajaj Dominar 400 offers a gentle heap from front to the rear seat. The tail completes in the midway while a plastic number plate holder and mudguard ends the things in the same smooth manner. The alloy wheels are super cool and matches perfectly to the nature of the bike. Short exhaust has been perfectly placed while the silver swing-arm was a welcome move, keeping the beauty of even the minor elements alive on the Dominar 400. It looks massive with its thick tyres and low stance with even Bajaj Auto comparing it with the proud stance of a Lion.

Bajaj Dominar 400 measures 2156 mm in length, 813 mm in width and 1112 mm in height. The wheelbase measures 1453 mm while the bike weighs 182 kg with a full fuel tank. It claims a 157 mm of decent ground clearance and carries a 13 liter fuel tank. The seat height for the Dominar has not yet been officially revealed. Bajaj used a completely new unit for the console duty on the Dominar 400. The one within the fuel tank is a slightly rectangular unit with indicator lights in a compartment while the second screen is the actual instrument console, carrying the typical cruiser style functionality while sharing some modern looks.

All the details like speedometer, tachometer and odometer are available on the primary screen. The unit has a base dark shade while the readout value are displayed in white on the motorcycle. The engine on the Dominar 400 is a 373.3cc, 1-cylinder liquid cooled and fuel injected motor producing 35 PS at 8000 rpm and 35 Nm at 6500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox with slipper clutch assist. The same unit is being used on KTM 390 Duke and RC390 while the Bajaj Dominar 400's uses triple spark and DTS-i technology.

The cruiser style riding on the Bajaj Dominar 400, along with the mileage oriented approach of Bajaj Auto has led to this mild tune of the engine on the Dominar 400. It has balanced performance and economy in such a way that the 0-100 kmph comes out in 8.23 seconds while the top speed is limited to 148 kmph. Bajaj has not focused on making the bike a sprinter as they are promoting the same as a street smart machine and a mile muncher on the same time. The motorcycle claims a wet weight of 182 kg, making it just few kilograms less than the RE bikes. The high power values provide the Dominar with an advantage over its competition.

The Dominar 400 uses a 320mm front disc brake while the rear disc measures 230mm. It comes with an option between ABS and non-ABS braking system, offering the former at INR 14,000 premium over then non-ABS version. The front suspension was expected to be USD forks on the newcomer while the production spec model brought conventional 43 mm, thick telescopic forks in place of them. The rear uses a gas charged mono-shock for the suspension duties. Dominar has been built to resist the ups and downs of the Indian roads with much ease than its KTM counterparts.

It uses thicker MRF Radials, 110/70-17 and 150/60-17 tyres for better grip levels while its low stance helps improve the stability factor by a good margin. Its high weight may restrict its top speed but still, that can help the rider to achieve the most stable ride of the segment on the Indian highways. Bajaj has launched the Dominar 400 in two variants, one with ABS and other without ABS. The shades on offer on the Dominar includes Canyon Red, Glacier Blue, Rock Matte Black.

Road presence is amazing

Barun Kumar | One year ago

Believe me, owning this bike for the past year has been a great experience. The road presence is amazing and it really catches the attention of people on the road. Initially, it might feel a bit heavy if you're upgrading from a low cc bike, but once you get used to it, you won't feel that anymore.

Talking about the pros, people will definitely notice you when you ride this bike. The stability it provides is unparalleled and the mileage is quite good. It can give you anywhere between 25-30 kmpl depending upon your driving style. It also comes with riding accessories which make it very helpful. Plus, its budget-friendly and has a tough body as per Indian terrains. Maintenance is also quite low for a 400cc bike. It has great power as the 400cc engine provides 40bhp, which is very good in this price range.

The only cons I noticed with this bike are its suspension and brakes. The suspension can be a bit stiff at times, especially on long stretches. Brakes could also be better, even though it comes with dual channel ABS. It doesn't give you much confidence as compared to its rivals like KTM/BMW. Also, it's not so good for people with short height. So, if you're around 5.6 feet, then you'll be able to handle it quite easily. Lastly, even though Bajaj's service network is good, their service quality isn't

Very smooth and just glides in traffic

Rishi Sethi | One year ago

The driving experience of the Dominar 400 is very smooth and just glides in traffic and on the highway. It is also very comfortable for long rides, and I myself have taken rides of 150+ km without any issues. The mileage of the bike is low in traffic, but can go up to 30+ km per litre on the highway.

The additional benefit of the new version of the bike is the back rest, which makes the pillion very comfortable for long rides. There is no jerk or stalling while changing gears. The additional fitting for adding carrier adds value to the bike. There is some vibration at speeds above 120 km/h, but the features are less than its competition.

The after sale service is good, but the people in the service center do not always listen to the requirements of the customer. The parts are not always available in the service center and can take up to two months to arrive.

In conclusion, the bike is a super hit and has almost everything a touring bike would need, making it a great buy for touring lovers. If the parts and accessories were available in a timely manner, it would get a 10/10 rating. With the current specifications and parts availability, I would rate it 7/10.

Bajaj Dominar is all about domination

Prabhanjan - | 2 years ago

Dominar satisfies the buyer mainly because of its comfort, then comes the rest. Main thing to note is that power and torque match is excellent. Then comes the mosaic styled headlights. Its touring ability and stress less drive mainly due to smoother gear shifts and slipper clutch is a boon in curving and heavy traffic. As everyone know we look more or consider negatives than positives to know the worth of a vehicle,the main negative is lack of gear indicator which indicates which gear you are in.I think it should be a must in 6 speed bikes. Mileage is not a big negative but its not good too and same about the looks. But the view from the rear gives you huge disappointment. But due to its price point and overall riding experience all its negative is neglected.

Best Features: Slipper clutch

Pros: comfort, due to slipper clutch, value for money, touring capability

Cons: mileage, due to huge variations between highway and city

Here it is! No Match for Dominar 400 at its price!

Rajdeep Singh | 3 years ago

Bajaj Dominar 400 is more like a hope for those who wish to enter the big bike segment and its clean INR 1.36 lakh price makes it easy for many, who were considering a 150 cc before, to enter the league. The introduction of LED lights, powerful 373 cc engine and ABS at such point is the best thing Bajaj Auto could have done in last few years. Dominar 400 has the best instrument console that Bajaj can offer currently and it even claims a better efficiency than the same engine which powers the KTM models. The 35 Nm of torque at just 6500 rpm means it it nothing less than a Royal Enfield and can pull anything with the same ease. The higher power means it can claim speed around 150 kmph while company just claims 148 kmph. It weighs 182 kg, which seems to much for a Bajaj bike as Pulsar have never been more than the 165 kg RS200. All in all, it can easily beat anything around its price segment

Best Features: Stuffed seats, LED lights, excessive torque

Pros: Price, engine, LED lights, stance

Cons: Excessive black parts, a bit of rear design, commuter style front view, high weight
