The Bajaj Dominar 400 has been spied in a striking ‘Racing Red’ colour scheme. The bike is currently available in four colours- Matte Black, Moon White, Midnight Blue, and Twilight Plum, the last one getting least amount of sales coming its way. So for the bike’s 2018 model year, the manufacturer could replace it with the new colour. This will also help them to keep the line-up fresh and increase the otherwise lukewarm response the bike is currently getting in its home market.
One of the most appealing factors about the 2014 CS400 concept was its striking red colour. Sadly, when the bike went in to production as the Dominar 400, the colour was nowhere to be seen. Now though, a ‘Racing Red’ color has been spotted and it is, without doubt, the closest Bajaj has come to the concept.
Instead of just changing the colour of its panels, Bajaj has opted for a Red-Silver combination, similar to the concept. For this, they have provided silver colour on its frame, swingarm, rear grab handle and the handlebar.
The Bajaj Dominar 400 comes powered by a Duke 390-sourced 373.3 DTS-i mill mated to a 6-speed gearbox produces 35 PS of maximum power and 35 Nm of peak torque. It come with lots of exciting features like LED headlamps, two displays, dual channel ABS, slipper clutch and more.
Bajaj has always been late to bring the best colours on to their motorcycles. If we remember right, the Demon black colour for Pulsar RS200 was released almost six months after the bike came out. This can be seen as strategy to improve sales once the initial sales volume begin to come down and has worked well till now. Hopefully, they can replicate similar increase on the Dominar as well, especially considering its dwindling sales in India in the past few months.
Bajaj Dominar 400 new colours spotted with golden alloys
Apart from the much awaited ‘Racing Red’ colour scheme, the Dominar 400 was spotted in three new shades at various dealerships. These include light blue, matte black and bright red. All the bikes sported golden coloured alloy wheels, indicting that they might command a slight premium or that they could be exclusive to ABS equipped variants.
More details and images will come out next month.
