The Pune-based two-wheeler maker Bajaj Auto is reportedly planning the export of its flagship motorcycle the Dominar 400 to Australia soon. Reports suggest that Bajaj, one of the largest two-wheeler exporters in the country, is looking at adding Australia to its export market.
Bajaj is betting big on its powerful cruiser the Dominar 400. Pitted against Royal Enfield in the cruiser segment in India, Bajaj hopes to draw volumes with the Dominar 400 in the coming months. The motorcycle now clocks an average sale of around 1,500 units a month while the sales target for the Dominar 400 lies between 10,000 and 12,000 per month. It remains to be seen if the Dominar can really dominate the market as its rival does. To put in perspective, Royal Enfield holds over 80 percent of market shares in this segment with its average sales touching 50,000 units monthly.
Bajaj is already exporting the Dominar 400 to its existing markets like South East Asia and Latin America.
