Bajaj Auto has increased the prices of its flagship motorcycle yet again. The Dominar 400 launched at Rs. 1.36 lakh in the regular variant and Rs. 1.50 lakh for the ABS variant in December 2016 is now priced at Rs. 1.39 lakh and Rs 1.53 lakh (all-prices ex-showroom Delhi), respectively.
This is the second hike in price of the Dominar 400 in a span of two months. In April, Bajaj Auto raised the prices of the power cruiser by Rs. 2000 for both variants. In the latest price revision, the increase is Rs. 1000.
When Bajaj Auto hiked the prices of its entire range of motorcycles by up to Rs. 1,500 with from January 1, the Dominar 400 was untouched. Despite two price increases in the following months, the Dominar 400 still retains competitive pricing over its rivals.
The motorcycle got a head start with nearly 3,000 takers in January. The sales were steady over 3,000 in February and March, but in April, there has been a slight dip. The company has exported nearly 1,000 units of the Dominar 400 in April and that could have been the reason for dent in sales.
The Dominar 400 is the most important and most refined product of the brand. Rajiv Bajaj, managing director of Bajaj Auto has high hopes on the future of Dominar 400. He had previously said that the company intends to sell nearly 6,000 units of the Dominar 400 eventually.
The Dominar 400 is powered by a 373.3cc 4-valve DTS-i liquid-cooled engine and churns out 34bhp and 35Nm of torque. The motorcycle can cruise from 0 to 100kmph in just 8.23 seconds. Dominar 400 has a full LED headlamp with vertical Auto Headlamp On (AHO), split reverse LCD display, twin channel ABS and slipper clutch.
