The bike has become even more nimble than before, feels very well put together

Verdict – The Dominar 400 now looks considerably fresh, with a new catchy “Auroral” green paint scheme and blacked outside profile of the tank. It still is an all-rounder motorcycle which can be used for the daily commute and can be taken on long distance rides. The Dominar 400 is now much more powerful, with the top speed crossing the 160 km/hr mark. The bike is also a lot smoother and touring capabilities have improved too. Although there are a few drawbacks, like the MRF tyres that are not up to the mark, the absence of a ride-by-wire feature, it is still a very appealing package. As it is now a pure sport-tourer by Bajaj we could even see some touring accessories coming by officially.

Personally, the taillight just steals the show!

What’s Cool

* The USD forks and a slew of changes give it a fresh look
* The suspension setup is more comfortable yet sharp, handle better
* Vibrations from the engine have reduced drastically while the engine produces more power

What’s Not So Cool

* The pillion seat is still a bit too narrow for a comfortable ride
* The green colour looks good in person but has a Kawasaki feel to it
* Braking performance isn’t up to the mark, MRF tyres don’t do justice here

This POV is quite appealing now
