Bajaj Auto is all set to introduce a new colour option on its flagship Dominar in the coming weeks. The matte black finished Bajaj Dominar has started arriving at dealerships across the country and was recently spotted in the new shade. Available presently in twilight plum, midnight blue and moon white colours, the matte black shade looks appealing on the Dominar and is certain to attract a host of buyers to the sports cruiser offering. While details on the new shade aren’t clear yet, we expect Bajaj to officially announce the colour option early next month.
The Bajaj Dominar went on trade in India late last year, and has been much loved for its plethora of features for a stellar price tag. The bike packs in an all-LED headlamp cluster and a dual instrument console with the LCD unit providing all the vital information, while the tell-tale lights are available on a second display unit on the fuel tank.
Power comes from the KTM derived 373.3 cc single-cylinder engine tuned for 34 bhp and 35 Nm of highest torque, while paired to a six-speed gearbox. The Dominar is one of the more reasonable motorcycles to get a slipper clutch unit, in addition to dual channel ABS. While the matte black Dominar indeed looks appealing, it also might bring just the right push for the bike’s sales figures. The Bajaj flagship commenced sales on a positive note averaging 3000 units in the initial months, but sales have seen a drastic drop in numbers. In May this year, Bajaj managed to sell 882 units of the Dominar in the India. The matte black colour then, just adds to the efforts of the manufacturer along with the new ‘Hyper riding’ marketing campaign, as it aims to push sales further. That said, expect the Bajaj Dominar to witness a marginal price climb opening next month. The rise will be due to the new GST norms in place that make bikes over 350 cc more expensive. Prices for the Bajaj Dominar presently commence at Rs.1.39 lakh for the non-ABS and Rs.1.53 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi) for the ABS variants.
