Bajaj is all set to launch it’s flagship touring bike The Bajaj Dominar next month.
Bookings for the 2019 Bajaj Dominar are currently accepted for a token amount of Rs. 1000-2000, depending on the dealership. The bike is expected to get a host of changes including USD front forks replacing telescopic units, a larger front brake disc, new split instrument console with additional information on display and a new exhaust unit. The tank panel has also been redesigned.
Dealer sources also suggest that the sales staff and the mechanics are undergoing training for the new Dominar, hinting at an imminent launch.
Visually, the 2019 Bajaj Dominar remains identical to the current model with the all-LED headlamp and taillight, while the alloy wheels are now finished in black with silver highlights as opposed to the gold rims seen on the 2018 version.
Speculations suggest that the engine will also see major changes on the 2019 Bajaj Dominar. This includes the 373.3 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor receiving the DOHC setup as opposed to SOHC on the current model. Vibrations have reportedly been worked on as well, while the motor could produce more power. In its current form, the engine is tuned for 35 bhp and 35 Nm of peak torque, while paired with a 6-speed gearbox. More importantly, the Dominar’s powertrain could be BS6 ready, becoming the first Bajaj product to meet the upcoming emission norms.
Expect prices to see a hike on the 2019 Bajaj Dominar in the vicinity of Rs. 10,000-15,000. The Dominar ABS has been currently priced at Rs. 1.63 lakh (ex-showroom).
